Netflix announced in August that it would be reviving the 1980s cartoon cult classic He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
And on Friday, the streaming platform revealed the all-star cast voicing the beloved characters of Eternia for the Netflix original Masters Of The Universe: Revelation.
Mark Hamill and Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey lead the show’s vocal talent, while Clerks’ Kevin Smith assumes the role of series showrunner and executive producer.

According to Deadline, the reboot, produced by Mattel Television will ‘focus on the unresolved storylines of the iconic characters, picking up where they left off decades ago.’
Hamill will portray He-Man’s arch nemesis Skeletor in the animated series, while Supergirl’s very own Chris Wood will voice the show’s iconic protagonist.
Headey, who mastered malevolence during her reign as Cersei Lannister on Game of Thrones, will come to the aid of Hamill’s Skeletor as his ‘evil witch’ accomplice, Evil-Lyn.
Teela, Prince Adam/He-Man’s female ally, will be voiced by none other than Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Gellar.

The classic cartoon takes place on the fictional planet Eternia ruled by King Randor and Queen Marlena who are the parents of He-Man – more specifically his civilian identity Prince Adam.
Prince Adam transforms into his supernatural alter-ego when he grasps onto the Sword of Power and utters the phrase ‘By the Power of Grayskull.’
This action bestows the prince with insurmountable power making him the mightiest man in the universe.
In typical superhero format, He-Man uses his supernatural powers to ward off the evil that threatens Eternia.
