It was back in November when director Kevin Smith told us how much he wanted to reveal the voice cast for his animated return to Eternia with Netflix's Masters of the Universe: Revelation. Three months later, that time has come!
Turning Friday into a big reveal day, the streaming service posted the voice cast line-up – and it's an "all-star" line-up of geek pop culture icons, including: Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Chris Wood, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Liam Cunningham, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Griffin Newman, Tiffany Smith, Henry Rollins, Alan Oppenheimer, Susan Eisenberg, Alicia Silverstone, Justin Long, Jason Mewes, Phil LaMarr, Tony Todd, Cree Summer, Kevin Michael Richardson, Kevin Conroy, and Harley Quinn Smith.
Here's a look at the line-up, including Hamill as Skeletor in the series, Headey as Skeletor's right-hand woman, Evil-Lyn; Wood as Prince Adam/He-Man; and Gellar and Cunningham as He-Man cohorts Teela and Man-at-Arms, respectively.

"I cannot believe the lineup of talent I get to play with. The incredible, star-studded cast that Mattel's Rob David and Netflix's Ted Biaselli assembled for our Masters of the Universe series will let any lifelong He-Man fan know we're treating this cartoon seriously and honoring the legendary world of Eternia with A-list talent. Chris, Sarah, Mark, Lena and the other amazing actors and actresses have given performances so powerful and real in a show that features a talking giant green tiger. With these fantastic performers behind our characters, it'll be crazy easy to immerse yourself in the swords and sorcery of our epic sci-fi soap opera."

"I'm Eternia-ly grateful to Mattel TV and Netflix for entrusting me with not only the secrets of Grayskull, but also their entire Universe. In Revelation, we pick up right where the classic era left off to tell an epic tale of what may be the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor! Brought to life with the most metal character designs Powerhouse Animation can contain in the frame, this is the Masters of the Universe story you always wanted to see as a kid!"
