You could hand Keith David a phone book to read and he’d make it sound commanding and impressive—but it’s even cooler to hear him voicing Hordak on Netflix’s upcoming Masters of the Universe: Revolution, the follow-up to Kevin Smith’s hit Masters of the Universe: Revelation.
Clearly the animated series is well aware of this and that’s why this new teaser is full of David’s glorious pipes:
There’s also another glimpse of the fight with Scare Glow that was teased last month, and, yes… Skeletor got a makeover. Here’s the official synopsis, so full of exclamation points you can’t help but get excited: “It’s technology versus magic when He-Man and the heroic warriors face the forces of Skeletor and something more in Masters of the Universe: Revolution—the new epic chapter in the battle for Castle Grayskull! The newly mechanized Skeletor, armed with the might of Motherboard, attacks the heart of Eternia while Prince Adam grapples with a new responsibility and what that means for him as He-Man! Adam is forced to choose between the scepter or the sword, and a life as either the King or the Champion! Meanwhile, the new Sorceress Teela searches for the secret of Snake Magic in the mists of Darksmoke to rebuild a magic realm and help He-Man hold off the greatest threat Eternia has ever faced: the return of the despot Hordak, the ruthless leader of the Horde Empire!”
Masters of the Universe: Revolution arrives January 25 on Netflix.
