Supergirl is coming to Eternia. Mattel announced yesterday that Melissa Benoist has joined the voice cast of Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revolution as Teela. Benoist replaces Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Teela in 2021’s Masters of the Universe: Revelations.
In an official statement released by Mattel, Benoist said:
“I jumped at the opportunity to work alongside my friend, Kevin Smith and join the Revolution family as another bold and fearless heroine. I look forward to sharing the next evolution of Teela’s story with fans.”
Revolution is the follow-up to 2021’s Revelation. According to Mattel, Revolution is an all-new story that focuses on the classic He-Man vs. Skeletor rivalry in a way audiences have never seen before. It’s technology up against magic as He-Man and the heroic warriors face the forces of Skeletor and a deadly threat to the Planet in the next epic chapter in the battle for Eternia.
“Melissa already exemplifies every aspect of Teela’s formidable personality, and we know that she will continue to showcase the same heart as she did in Supergirl, providing audiences with a new iteration of a classic character synonymous with strength and heroism,” said Fred Soulie, Senior Vice President and General Manager at Mattel Television.
Masters of the Universe: Revolution will debut on Netflix in 2024. It stars Benoist’s husband Chris Wood as He-Man and Hark Hamill as Skeletor. Last year, Smith revealed during San Diego Comic-Con that William Shatner would also be joining the cast, though no official announcements have been made about his role. Revolution is executive produced by Mattel’s Fred Soulie, Rob David and Christopher Keenan, as well as Ted Biaselli and Kevin Smith.
