Fans of He-Man will soon be returned to the land of Eternia. Deadline reports Netflix’s animated reboot of the 80s series, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, will bow its second half on November 23. The second portion of the initial season will continue the story of a fractured world at the brink of destruction.
According to Deadline, the series follows the world of Eternia in disarray. Sworn enemies Skeletor, played by Mark Hamill (Batman: The Animated Series, Star Wars) and Chris Wood’s (Thirtysomething(else), Supergirl) He-Man, have dealt each other mighty blows, leaving the only universe they know shattered. With the violence placing a rift among the Guardians of Grayskull, the heroine – Teela – must search the land to recover the Sword of Power and unify Eternia to prominence before it’s lost forever.
Along with Hamill and Wood, the series boasts a stellar voice-acting cast. According to Deadline, Teela is voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Grudge). She is joined by Lena Headey (Gunpowder Milkshake, Game of Thrones) as Evil-Lyn, Tiffany Smith (Vice, Supernatural) as Andra, Alicia Silverstone (Batman & Robin, Clueless) as Queen Larena, and Cree Summer (Rugrats, A Different World) as Priestess. Veteran voice actors Phil LaMarr (Mad TV, Static Shock), Tony Todd (Candyman, The Rock), and Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series, Batman: The Killing Joke) voice the characters, He-Ro, Scare Glow, and Mer-Man, respectively.
The rest of the cast is comprised of Diedrich Bader (Office Space, The Drew Carey Show), Liam Cunningham (Hunger, Clash of the Titans), Susan Eisenberg (Justice League, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition), Justin Long (Accepted, Galaxy Quest), Jason Mewes (Dogma, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back), Griffin Newman (The Tick, No Kiss List), Alan Oppenheimer (Westworld, 9), Kevin Micahel Richardson (Mortal Kombat, Young Justice), Henry Rollins (Lost Highway, Feast), and Stephen Root (Barry, Perry Mason).
The second half will consist of five 30-minute episodes, via Deadline. The series comes from Clerks scribe Kevin Smith. Smith executive produces along with Adam Bonnett (Thomas & Friends, Barbie: Big City, Big Dreams), Rob David (Max Steel: Team Turbo, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Christopher Keenan (Batman Beyond, Justice League), and Frederic Soulie (Barbie & Chelsea The Lost Birthday). Susan Corbin (Drive, Babylon 5) also produces.
Smith’s Revelation isn’t the only He-Man title on the streaming service. Many of the same executive producers are behind He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, a separate series retelling the storied tale of He-Man and the fight for Grayskull. It premiered on Netflix this past September.
