Netflix formally unveiled the long-awaited sequel to the 1983 hit cartoon series, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, with an action-packed, nostalgia-inducing, musclebound trailer.
The animated series is not without its all-star cast. Showrunner Kevin Smith (Mallrats, Clerks, Dogma) will be joined by the iconic Mark Hamill as the voice of Skeletor, Lena Headey (Game of Thrones, Dredd) as Evil-Lyn, Chris Wood (Mon-El in Supergirl) as He-Man, Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as Teela, Liam Cunningham as Man-at-Arms, Stephen Root as Cringer, Kevin Conroy as Mer-Man, Kevin Michael Richardson as Beast Man, and Phil LaMarr as He-Ro among many others.
The animated series will be a direct continuation of the original show, and will also feature other characters from Mattel that never appeared in the series.
Masters of the Universe: REVELATION will premiere with its first 5 episodes on Netflix starting July 23, 2021. The remaining episodes will follow suit later in the year.
