With these fantastic performers behind our characters, it’ll be crazy easy to immerse yourself in the swords and sorcery of our epic sci-fi soap opera!” – Kevin Smith

Mattel’s (NASDAQ: MAT) reboot of the classic Masters of the Universe franchise also includes a comic book series by DC Comics (available now), reimagined versions of the 80’s toys (hitting retail shelves in the fall of 2020), a CG-animated series with Netflix (He-Man and the Masters of the Universe) and a feature film.

Wow, Mark Hamill as Skelly...sweet!. OMG He-Ro!.

But let me get this straight, the posters Mattel released back in december, the then called "2nd animated series" and Revelations are one and the same, not two parallel shows, right?.

IDK, I hope he can swtich it up enough so everytime I hear him I don't hear Joker. Whenever I watch the 90's Spider-Man series with Hobgoblin it always sound like BTAS Joker.

Indeed,  it will be difficult not to associate this interpretation as Skeletor with that of the Joker, some have been surprised by bringing Alan Oppenheimer back but not giving him the role of Skelly.

Same thing happens with his voice for Gargoyle in the Incredible Hulk animated series and Maximus in Fantastic Four.

Kevin Smith today gave us a little, and we do mean little tease for his upcoming Masters Of The Universe: Revelation Netflix animated series by posting the following on Twitter:

Why have the original Skeletor as a voice actor and not have him voice Skeletor. I'm sure Mark Hammil will do a good job though.

Alan Oppenheimer is going to be 90 years old later this month.  A smaller role is probably better for him at this point.

In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, showrunner Kevin Smith confirmed that there aren't any major redesigns to the characters and they'll closely resemble their classic look in the upcoming Masters of the Universe: Revelation animated series coming to Netflix sometime next year.

The show which was first announced last year during PoweCon is said to be a continuation of the original Filmation animated series, and picks up right where that show left off. However don't expect things to stay the same from the original series according to Smith in the recent interview.

We begin where they ended, the same tone like that, and then our tone shifts as something cataclysmic happens. That's where our modern story kicks in. Even then, it's not like 'Everything you know about He-Man is wrong. We're gonna upend the universe.

" 'Everything you know about He-Man is wrong" ..obviously, Kevin Smith's geek cred is strong, so I hope this is intentional phrasing and the show sticks to it. ..... I'm not often a fan of revisionism after revisionism, and would prefer to see new ideas for continuing the story forward....in addition, the mini He-man comics were a beloved part of my childhood. Hopefully there can be some sort of print promotion, written by Smith , to support / supplement the show..... yes, that's 100% a pipe dream in my head, but eh, hope is fun.

That's not quite what the quote says, if you'd read it again:

Well a good guess is that maybe he is referring to the secrets/powers of Grayskull which have been taken from the original concept that was planned in the 80's (for the PoG line) and not the more modern conceptions that we are used to, like what has been planted in the 200X reboot.

Candyman as Scare Glow and Batman “Kevin Conroy” as Merman. Plus Mark Hamil, Looks like an Allstar cast. They said a continuation of the original show. They even have the original Skeletor as Moss Man. I hope it the final product turns out great.
