As we can see, there is a lot to process there. Mark Hamill, aside from Luke Skywalker, is known for his voice work. Hamill played Joker on Batman: The Animated Series and has starred on shows like Regular Show and Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Chris Wood, who Kevin Smith has worked with on Supergirl, will be our new He-Man. Smith's frequent collaborator Jason Mewes, the other half of Jay and Silent Bob, is on board as well, with his daughter Harley Quinn Smith in on the action. We've also got the "one true Batman" Kevin Conroy on board, as well as Alan Oppenheimer, who was the original Skeletor.
The series was initially announced in August of last year. Interestingly enough, Netflix has two different He-Man shows in the works right now, and it looks like they will also play host to the live-action Masters of the Universe movie, which is set to begin filming soon. Kevin Smith, speaking about Masters of the Universe: Revelation, had this to say.
"Teddy Biaselli, our exec at Netflix, is an amazing man, and grew up on the franchise. Teddy's big note and only note was, 'When I was a kid, I did not realize this was campy. This was so serious to me, please just treat it serious. Treat it like Shakespeare...' We went in with this mantra of, like, nobody is winking and nobody's acting like this is weirdness. ManAtArms, Stinkor, or no, it's all played incredibly Game of Thrones-straight."
As far as style goes, it will have an anime look and feel. This is something Netflix has been dabbling with a lot more in recent years. Kevin Smith, in looking for a comparison, said it will look a lot like the Castlevania series.
"If you like the style of Castlevania, just put HeMan through that filter, and it has that feel and look to it. It's anime style."
There is no word currently on when the show will debut, but it's in production now. Kevin Smith serves as showrunner, with Eric Carrasco (Supergirl), Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen), Diya Mishra (Magic the Gathering) and Marc Bernardin (Alphas) writing the show.
