He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe 2021 Cast Guide: What The Actors Look Like

Netflix has released the first season of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe – a reboot of the 1980s cartoon of the same name – and the show’s cast is filled with talented and well-known voice actors. From Prince Adam and Skeletor to Teela and Man-at-Arms, most of the franchise’s classic characters are back, albeit in somewhat altered forms. Those beloved characters are brought to life by a phenomenal voice acting ensemble in Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

Inevitably, the new He-Man series will draw comparisons to Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Kevin Smith’s animated sequel series to the original cartoon that premiered on Netflix earlier in 2021. The two shows are actually quite different, however: Masters of the Universe: Revelation has an anime-inspired art style and was largely targeted at older fans of the original show, whereas He-Man and the Masters of the Universe 2021 is CG and aimed almost entirely at kids. Revelation had a fantastic cast of its own, which included Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Kevin Conroy.

The characters of Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe certainly differ from their Revelation counterparts, but they’re still voiced by a fantastic collection of voice actors. With both shows boasting such stellar ensembles, it’s tough to even say which cast brings the heroes and villains of Eternia to life better. Here are the stars of Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, who they play, and where else viewers may know them from.

Voice acting superstar Yuri Lowenthal plays the leading role of Prince Adam in the new Masters of the Universe, as well as his alter ego, the heroic He-Man. Lowenthal has voiced numerous iconic animated characters through the years, including Sasuke Uchiha in Naruto, Ben Tennyson in Ben 10, and Jinnosuke in Afro Samurai. In the world of video games, he’s best known for voicing characters like Alucard in Castlevania and Spider-Man in Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018). Lowenthal is about as veteran of a voice actor as anyone could possibly be, and he does a great job as He-Man.

Classic Masters of the Universe hero Teela is back in Netflix’s He-Man series, voiced by Kimberly Brooks. Brooks is a prolific voice actor, having played various TV characters including Princess Allura in Voltron: Legendary Defender, Mee Mee in Dexter’s Laboratory, and Jasper in Steven Universe. She’s also starred in a number of video games, such as Mass Effect, in which she played Ashley Williams, and the Batman: Arkham series, in which she voices Barbara Gordon. More recently, Brooks has featured in shows like The Owl House and Fast & Furious Spy Racers.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe brings back Prince Adam’s trusty companion Cringer, aka Battle Cat, this time voiced by David Kaye. Kaye is probably best known as the frequent voice of Megatron in cartoons like Beast Wars: Transformers and Transformers: Armada. He also voices Clank in the popular Ratchet & Clank video game series, Duckworth in the Ducktales reboot series, and Nathan Hale in the Resistance video games. Kaye is currently the announcer for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO.

Eternia hero Man-at-Arms joins the fight once more in Netflix’s He-Man series, voiced by Antony Del Rio. Del Rio is best known in the TV animation world for playing Kel in Star Wars: Resistance, Kyle in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, and Todd in Twelve Forever. In the world of video games, he also plays Pit in the Super Smash Brothers franchise and Blue Beetle in Injustice 2.

Rounding out Prince Adam’s heroic team is Ram-Ma’am, a gender-swapped version of the original cartoon’s Ram-Man voiced by Judy Alice Lee. Lee is best known for her work in the video game world, having featured in games like Fallout 76, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, The Last of Us: Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. She’s also voiced Jett Dawson in Rainbow High and Olivia in Sharkdog.

He-Man wouldn’t be much without his arch-nemesis Skeletor, who’s voiced by Benjamin Diskin in the new Netflix series. Diskin has voiced characters like Joseph Joestar in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’s English dub, Venom in The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Eugene in Hey Arnold! He’s also featured in video games like Halo 4, Mega Man 11, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and the Kingdom Hearts series.

Once again joining Eternia’s most wanted list in He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is the villainous Evil-lyn, played by voice-acting superstar Grey Griffin, who some may recognize for her credits as Grey DeLisle. Griffin has voiced numerous beloved animated characters in films, TV shows and video games, with some of her most notable roles including Princess Azula in Avatar: The Last Airbender, Daphne in the Scooby-Doo franchise, Vicky in The Fairly OddParents, Emily Elizabeth in Clifford the Big Red Dog, and Padme Amidala in a number of Star Wars video games and animated projects. As usual, she is fantastic as Evil-lyn.

Skeletor’s formidable lackey Beast Man is played by Trevor Devall in Netflix’s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Viewers may recognize Devall as the voice of Hot Dog in Krypto the Superdog, Rocket Raccoon in the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series, and Emperor Palpatine in the Lego Star Wars franchise. He has also appeared in video games like Dota 2 and Final Fantasy XV.

Skeletor’s last major ally, the fearsome Kronis, is voiced by Roger Craig Smith in He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Smith is most famous for being the main voice of Sonic the Hedgehog since 2010. He’s also played Captain America in a number of Marvel animated projects, Ezio in the Assassin’s Creed series, and Chris Redfield in the Resident Evil franchise, among many other roles.

In addition to the main cast of heroes and villains, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe 2021 features a number of other talented stars as its supporting characters. Voice acting veteran Fred Tatasciore (Gears of War, DC Universe) voices King Randor and Baddrah in the show, and Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants, voices Ork-o. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe also features Max Mitchell (We Bare Bears) as Kitty and Max Stubington (Splitting Up Together) as Young Adam.
