Netflix has announced the cast for its forthcoming new He-Man animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation, revealing that Star Wars legend Mark Hamill will be taking on the role of our hero's arch-nemesis Skeletor.

Gushing about his band of merry men and women, Smith said: "I cannot believe the lineup of talent I get to play with.

"The incredible, star-studded cast that Mattel's Rob David and Netflix's Ted Biaselli assembled for our Masters of the Universe series will let any lifelong He-Man fan know we're treating this cartoon seriously and honoring the legendary world of Eternia with A-list talent.

"Chris, Sarah, Mark, Lena and the other amazing actors and actresses have given performances so powerful and real in a show that features a talking giant green tiger.
