Kevin Smith is assembling an all-star voice cast for his upcoming “Masters of the Universe” reboot on Netflix.
The animated series — officially titled “Masters of the Universe: Revelation” — will serve as a sequel to the story of He-Man and Skeletor from the original cartoon that debuted in the 1980’s rather than a complete re-imagining.
On Friday, the cast for the upcoming series was revealed along with the parts they will be playing and it looks like Netflix pulled out all the stops when assembling the actors and actresses taking over these characters. At the top of the list will be Mark Hamill, who is best known for his role as Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars” saga, but fans also know that he’s been a veteran voice actor for many years including his most iconic turn as the Joker in numerous Batman animated features.
Hamill will be voicing Skeletor, the main villain, who is trying to conquer Greyskull and by extension rule all of Eternia. Here’s the full cast list as revealed on Friday:
