Skeletor, the legendary villain from the beloved 1980s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series, is back, and it sounds familiar. Star Wars star Mark Hamill is voicing the villain. The infamous bone in Masters of the Universe: Revelation, a reboot of the classic animated show, yes, that’s Luke Skywalker. That mocks from the bad guy’s bone mouth in the new trailer released Thursday.
This isn’t the first time Hamill has left a good man named Luke behind him. He’s been dubbed the Joker for a long time on various shows. And it’s not news that he’s taking the role. Netflix announced the cast in February. Still, it’s always worth hearing the farmer tatooine again.
A lot of the famous names on this list are Kevin Smith of Clerks fame: runner and producer Lena Headey (Cersei in Game of Thrones) plays Evil-Lyn; Sarah Michelle Gellar plays Teela; Henry Rollins plays Tri-. Klops; and Alicia Silverstone as Queen Marlena. Another Game of Thrones vet Liam Cunningham plays the Man-At-Arms.
“I can’t believe the talent I’ve played with,” Smith said in a statement in February.
