By the Power of Grayskull, He-Man is returning! Netflix has been cooking up a reboot of the classic 80s cartoon, as spearheaded by Kevin Smith, and this Thursday the streaming giant finally unveiled our first look at Masters of the Universe: Revelation. The trailer went down a storm online, too, as the internet is going crazy with hype for what looks to be a nostalgic but also hugely thrilling ride.
Billed as both a continuation of the original animated series and a more fleshed out, mature reimagining, Masters of the Universe brings together one heck of an impressive voice cast, likely convinced to sign up by the appeal of the beloved IP and the involvement of a top filmmaker like Smith. Supergirl‘s Chris Wood voices Prince Adam of Eternia, with Mark Hamill as his nemesis, Skeletor. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alicia Silverstone, Lena Headey, Diedrich Bader and Kevin Conroy are among the other icons on board. And yes, Smith’s pal Jason Mewes is in it, too, voicing Stinkor.
See below for just a taste of how the first footage is going down on Twitter today:

But let’s not forget Hamill’s turn as Skeletor, with the Joker icon adding another legendary animated villain to his resumé.
