Mark Hamill and Lena Headey to voice Netflix's He-Man reboot
He-Man fans everywhere, strap yourselves in – the stars voicing Netflix’s reboot have been revealed and it’s a seriously A-list bunch.
Star Wars legend Mark Hamill, Game Of Thrones star Lena Headey and Buffy’s Sarah Michelle Gellar will all be lending their dulcet tones to Masters Of The Universe: Revelation.
Mark will portray He-Man’s arch nemesis Skeletor in the animated series, with Lena as his ‘evil witch’ accomplice, Evil-Lyn, and Mark Rollins as henchman Tri-Klops.
Supergirl’s Chris Wood will voice He-Man himself, while Sarah will portray his ally, Teela.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’ve also got Justin Long playing Roboto and Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena.
So just a bunch of nobodies, then, really.
Meanwhile, Clerks’ Kevin Smith is taking up the mantle as series showrunner and executive producer.
Descendant’s Adam Bonnett, Batman Beyond’s Christopher Keenan, and the original He-Man series’ Rob David have also signed on to executive produce.
Comedian Kevin announced the ’80s reboot back in August, promising the superhero anime series would be ‘the story you always wanted to see as a kid’.
The original cartoon tells the adventure of Prince Adam – heir to the throne of planet Eternia – who uses a magical Power Sword to transform into the warrior He-Man.
Revelation picks up where the beloved show ended 35 years ago and will revisit unresolved storylines.
Discussing the remake, Kevin said in a statement: ‘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
He also said the series just might have ‘the final battle between He-Man and Skeletor’.
