“On the heels of our 40th anniversary, He-Man is more prevalent in pop culture than ever before,” Mattel Television Senior Vice President and General Manager Fred Soulie added of the signing of Kevin Smith. “So we are especially excited to bring the force that is Melissa Benoist to the cast. She exemplifies every aspect of Teela’s formidable personality. And we know that she will continue to show the same heart as in Supergirl. She will give audiences a new iteration of a classic character synonymous with strength and heroism.”
Masters of the Universe: Revolution was announced in June 2022 during Netflix’s Geeked Week. The series will follow Teela, He-Man, and the rest of the Masters of the Universe heroes as they “fight to save Eternia from the webs of darkness.” Revolution is an all-new story that focuses on “the classic rivalry between He-Man and Skeletor in a way never seen before,” reads the official synopsis for the series. “Technology meets magic as He-Man and his heroic warriors face off against the forces of Skeletor and a deadly threat to the Planet in the next epic chapter of the battle for Eternia.” It is quite a success to have a star like Melissa Benoist in the cast.
