Filmmaker Kevin Smith is hyping the voice cast of his upcoming Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
Sharing a picture on Twitter of himself in front of Prince Adam, Smith wrote, "The voice cast of the [Masters of the Universe] series I’m doing for [Mattel] & [Netflix] is INSANE! When the news hits, it won’t break the internet; instead, it will make the internet believe that we’re living in a simulation in which the programmers wanna see us smile & cry tears of joy."
