During the ’80s, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe introduced a generation to the now iconic MOTUcharacters. Kevin Smith is currently overseeing a revival/continuation for Netflix called Masters of the Universe: Revelation. Via Bleeding Cool, the latest episode of Smith’s Fatman Beyond podcast shed some light on the series’ current state.
“I did recording today remotely for Masters of the Universe — all the recording sessions now you have one person here, one person here, and one person there,” said Smith. “The other day, we finished Lena Headey’s stuff, which was awesome. She’s over in the UK, so it was early in the morning for us, like 8 a.m. but whatever time it is over there. I could just listen to her all f***ing day long, man. She just brings it and chews that f***ing dialogue and makes it so good. Think of anyone in your life, have them say ‘wretched,’ and she beats them.”
Smith went on to say “Stephen Root finished up all of his Cringer stuff, absolutely wonderful,” added Smith. “We finished Chris Wood and all the He-Man/Prince Adam stuff. We finished up Sarah Michelle Gellar for all the Teela stuff and today was like all Mark [Hamill]. All of the Skeletor stuff is now recorded. I’ve heard now all of the scripts brought to life. I’ve heard the last line of the show, so it’s been fantastic.”
Sarah Michelle Gellar, Mark Hamill, and Chris Wood are headlining the series. Gellar will voice Teela, with Hamill as Skeletor, and Wood as He-Man/Prince Adam. Headey will voice Evil-Lyn, with Liam Cunningham as Man-At-Arms, Griffin Newman will play Orko, Stephen Root as Cringer, Diedrich Bader as King Randor, Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena, and Susan Eisenberg as Sorceress.
