Earlier this year Netflix and Mattel Television announced they’re uniting to release a new and improved version of the tremendously popular He-Man and Masters of the Universe series.
Fans of the original can get even more excited now as they’ve released the list of the voice actors who will star in the web series.
The titular character He-Man will be voiced by Chris Wood, a handsome actor who swooned audiences in his role as Mon-El on Supergirl and his work on The Vampire Diaries.
The warrior Teela, a fan favourite from the original cartoon is going to be voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar. You definitely know Sarah Michelle Gellar as your teenage crush! She played Buffy Summers in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Daphne in the Scooby-Doo movies.
The immensely popular and much-memed character Skeletor will be voiced by the versatile Mark Hamill. Hamill is of course primarily known as Luke Skywalker from Star Wars. However, his voice work as the Joker in the Batman animated series has earned him a lot of praise too.
Alan Oppenheimer, the actor who voiced the original Skeletor will also be heard in this web series as Moss-Man.
Two actors who worked together on HBO’s Game of Thrones will be reunited in this web series. Lena Heady who played the ruthless Cersei Lannister will be the voice of Evil-lyn and Liam Cunningham who played the beloved Sir Davos will voice Man-At-Arms.
The remaining characters are voiced by the following:
- Trap Jaw: Diedrich Bader
- Mer-Man: Kevin Conroy
- Sorceress: Susan Eisenberg
- He-Ro: Phil LaMarr
- Roboto: Justin Long
- Stinkor: Jason Mewes
- Orko: Griffin Newman
- Queen Marlena: Alicia Silverstone
- Priestess: Cree Summer
The web series is slated to premiere later this year.
