Netflix and Mattel Television have released the official cast list for Kevin Smith's Masters of the Universe: Revelation, an original anime that serves as a direct sequel to the '80s adventure cartoon. The cast includes a lot of familiar names for fans of animation, genre entertainment, or Smith's own work. Back in November, Smith teased a "huge" voice cast for the production, and the just-released list does not disappoint, beginning with Mark Hamill providing the voice of Skeletor. Besides being a Star Wars legend and one of the most accomplished voice actors of his generation, Hamill appeared in Smith's 2001 film Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back.
The cast list was pretty thorough, too, so we have a good sense of how it's going to shake out. On top of a number of big names and exciting surprises, we get Alan Oppenheimer, the original voice of Skeletor, returning to voice Moss Man.
