'Masters of the Universe: Revelation' Full Cast List: Meet Chris Wood and others from Netflix show
'Masters of the Universe: Revelation', which is a follow-up of the OG cartoon released in 1980s, premieres on July 23
The time is almost here. 'Masters of the Universe: Revelation' part one is all set to premiere on Netflix on July 23, Friday. The animation series will pick where it left. Executive Producer and showrunner Kevin Smith has confirmed that the show is a follow-up of events that transpired in the ‘80s animated series which was aired from 1983-1985. He-Man will fight old foe Skeletor with Battle Cat, Teela, and Man-At-Arms by his side.
But before we look at the voice cast, here are a few show titles you can binge on: '3Below: Tales of Arcadia', 'Yasuke', 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' and 'Transformers: War for Cybertron'.
Chris Wood as Prince Adam/ He-Man
In the first line of toys and illustrated mini-comics, Prince Adam's backstory is vastly different. He is a barbarian and doesn't have a double identity. However, in DC Comics' 'From Eternia—With Death!' issue, his identity as the Eternian prince was revealed for the first time. Before this, he was a full-time hero. Long story short, the character has evolved with time and hopefully, more layers have been added in the upcoming animated series. 'Supergirl' actor Chris Wood plays Prince Adam/ He-Man. He is also known for his work in 'Girls' (2012), 'The Carrie Diaries' (2013), 'Major Crimes' (2012), and 'The Vampire Diaries' (2009).
Mark Hamill as Skeletor
Skeletor is a textbook villain who is set up for failure each time he conjures up a nefarious plan to take over Castle Grayskull. Will this time be any different? "[Hamill] had talked about wanting to step out of animation, but he was like, 'When you came at me with Skeletor, how could I say no?'" Smith told Entertainment Weekly. Hamill is known for his role as Luke Skywalker. This aside, he has also starred in 'Corvette Summer' (1978), 'The Big Red One' (1980), and 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' (2014).
Sarah Michelle Gellar As Teela
Teela is the head of the Royal Guard. Part of her duties is to train Prince Adam. Is she doing just that or more in the new series? We'll find out soon. "[Revelation] is going to open it up to a world of people that don’t know the [original] cartoon," she told Gizmodo and added: "I know, for example, my kids watched it last night and my kids didn’t know He-Man, which is so funny to me, because growing up you knew about He-Man whether you watched it or not." The Emmy Award-winning actress is also known for lending her voice to several characters including in movies 'Small Soldiers' (1998), 'Happily N'Ever After' (2006) and 'TMNT' (2007).
Lena Headey As Evil-Lyn
She is Skeletor's sidekick but from what we hear she may have a change of heart. We are not keeping our hopes up. "You would get people like Lena Headey was like, ‘I watched this as a child,'" Smith told the press and added: "I’m like, ‘What?’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, man, I always loved Evil-Lyn. It’s a trip that you’re asking me to play Evil Lynn.’ But she did it in a British voice that sounded way better." Headey is known for her work in 'Game of Thrones', '300', and 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'.
Other voice actors playing key roles in the series are Liam Cunningham As Man-At-Arms, Diedrich Bader As King Randor And Trap Jaw, Alicia Silverstone As Queen Marlena, Stephen Root As Battle Cat, Griffin Newman As Orko, and Susan Eisenberg As Sorceress.
'Master of the Universe: Revelation' will stream on Netflix.
