Skeletor, the legendary villain of the beloved 1980s series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, is back – and he looks galactically familiar. Star Wars star Mark Hamill voices the infamous skeleton villain in Masters of the Universe: Revelation, a reboot of the classic animated series. Yes, it’s Luke Skywalker coming out of the villain’s bony mouth in a new trailer released on Thursday.
This is certainly not the first time Hamill has left the good guy Luke behind – he has long voiced the Joker on various shows. And it’s no news he’s assuming the role – Netflix announced the casting in February. Yet hearing the Tatooine farm boy again is always worth it.
Famous names abound in this show. Kevin Smith of renowned Clerks is showrunner and executive producer. Lena Headey (Cersei in Game of Thrones) plays the evil Evil-Lyn; Sarah Michelle Gellar plays Teela; Henry Rollins plays Tri-Klops; and Alicia Silverstone plays Queen Marlena. Another Game of Thrones veteran, Liam Cunningham, plays Man-At-Arms.
“I can’t believe the range of talent I can play with,” Smith said in a February statement.
If you don’t remember He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, you can’t remember the 1980s, when the show featured muscular He-Man, Skeletor, and the mysterious fortress of Castle Grayskull. This is a retro sword and witchcraft game with a lot of famous voices to recognize. The first part of the series arrives on Netflix on July 23.
