One of the most instantly recognisable villain laughs of the '80s and '90s was Skeletor from 'He-Man and the Masters of the Universe'.
For one, the design of Skeletor was absolutely batshit, but there was something about a skull-head atop of a giant swole bodybuilder frame that made it all the weirder. The voice, as well, was so weirdly shrill that just none of it made sense.
Had to have been all the cocaine back then. Anyway, a new animated series of 'Masters of the Universe' - titled 'Masters of the Universe: Revelation' is on its way to Netflix, with Kevin Smith working behind the scenes as showrunner and executive producer.
Late yesterday evening, the voice cast for the show was confirmed - with none other than Mark Hamill set to voice Skeletor. Joining the 'Star Wars' icon will be 'Game of Thrones' star Lena Headey, Sarah Michelle Gellar from 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer', and 'Supergirl' star Chris Wood.
What's more, our own Liam Cunningham will be voicing Man-at-Arms, while Coen Brothers regular Stephen Root will be voicing Cringer. Henry Rollins - yes, Henry Rollins from Black Flag - will be voicing Tri-Klops. As for Hamill, he'll have a familiar voice actor to work along beside as Kevin Conroy from 'Batman: The Animated Series' is also in the cast as Mer-Man.
Needless to say, the talent assembled is pretty spectacular and Smith seems pretty chuffed with himself. Speaking to EW, Smith said that Hamill, Headey and the other voice actors "have given performances so powerful and real in a show that features a talking giant green tiger!
"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!"
There's no release date set for 'Masters of the Universe: Revelation', but it's one of two anime series that Netflix has in the pipeline based on the '80s cartoon series and toyline. What's more, the live-action 'Masters of the Universe' movie - starring 'To All The Boys I've Loved Before' star Noah Cettineo as He-Man - is rumoured to be heading to Netflix too.
Do we say it? Netflix has THE POWERRRRRRRR.
