Netflix’s animated show, Master of the Universe: Revelation may not have been every fan’s dream, watching Mark Hamill voice acting sure is one to remember.
While the fans had split opinions over Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation, one thing is for sure: there is not a soul that was not amazed by the amazing voice acting of Mark Hamill, who took over the the role of Skeletor in the Masters of the Universe reboot from original voice actor Alan Oppenheimer.
Now Netflix has realeased a new behind the scenes video, which shows Hamill in his element during the recording sessions of the show. Just like with all of his voice roles – especially the Joker -, Hamill brings a menacing glee to the role. This comes out even more when the 70-year-old actor is performing alongside Lena Heady (Game of Thrones), who takes over the voice of Evil Lynn in the updated show.

The series stars Mark Hamill (Skeletor), Lena Heady (Evil-Lyn), Chris Wood (Prince Adam), and Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela. In addition to the stacked cast of the first half of the season, new additions include Method Man (Clamp Champ), Dee Bradley Baker (Savage He-Man), and Danny Trejo (Ramm Man) who make their debut in Part 2.
Director Kevin Smith was heavily criticised by fans after pretty much discarding both He-Man and Skeletor after just one episode, and instead making Teela the protagonist of the series. But the negative feedback did not cause desperation in the artist. In an interview with Variety, he said, “I see people online go, ‘Hey man, they’re getting rid of He-Man! Like, you really ****ing think Mattel Televisions, who hired me and paid me money, wants to do a ****ing Masters of the Universe show without He-Man? Grow the ***up man. Like, that blew my mind, bunch of people being like, ‘Oh, I smell it. This is a bait and switch.’”
It seems that Smith is hoping for another round of the show, that’s why Part 2 has an open ending. You can watch Masters of the Universe: Revelation on Netflix.
