Supergirl alumna Melissa Benoist will be the voice of heroine Teela in Masters of the Universe: Revolution, Kevin Smith’s continuation of his Masters Of The Universe: Revelation He-Man adaptation at Netflix, Mattel announced today. She takes over the role played by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the original series.

Set as the follow-up to 2021’s Revelation, Revolution finds Benoist as Teela alongside He-Man and the rest of the Masters as they struggle to save Eternia from the tangles of darkness.

“Revolution is an all-new story that focuses on the classic He-Man vs. Skeletor rivalry in a way audiences have never seen before,” Mattel said. 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.

“I jumped at the opportunity to work alongside my friend, Kevin Smith and join the Revolution family as another bold and fearless heroine,” said Benoist. “I look forward to sharing the next evolution of Teela’s story with fans.”

She joins previously announced cast including Chris Wood as He-Man, Emmy nominee Mark Hamill as Skeletor, and William Shatner in a still-to-be announced role.

Masters of the Universe: Revolution is set to debut on Netflix in 2024. Mattel’s Fred Soulie, Rob David and Christopher Keenan executive produce, along with Ted Biaselli and Kevin Smith.

Masters of the Universe: Revolution Recasts Teela With Supergirl Star

Teela, the Masters of the Universe: Revelation character played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, is recast for Revolution with the star of Supergirl.

Masters of the Universe: Revolution has recast the heroine Teela with the star of The CW's Supergirl. The upcoming Netflix animated series is being billed as a continuation of Kevin Smith's Masters of the Universe: Revelation. That series, which premiered in 2021, provided a new sequel timeline to the iconic 1980s series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, bringing back many fan favorite characters. This includes the strapping He-Man (Chris Wood), the insidious Skeletor (Mark Hamill), and He-Man's daring protector Teela (Sarah Michelle Gellar).

Now, Mattel announces that a new actor will be stepping into the role of Teela in Masters of the Universe: Revolution. The role will be taken over by Melissa Benoist, who is best known for playing the titular Kryptonian heroine in the Arrowverse series Supergirl. Benoist is the latest actor to join the series after the legendary William Shatner, who is playing a currently undisclosed role.

Melissa Benoist is Continuing Her Fruitful Collaboration with Kevin Smith

https://static1.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Melissa-Benoist-Jay-and-Silent-Bob-Reboot.jpg

Benoist is best known for playing Superman's cousin Supergirl, a role she held for 126 episodes across six seasons. However, she has extensive experience in genres outside the heroic realm. This includes one of her star-making roles, as new McKinley High student Marley Rose on seasons 4 and 5 of Glee, as well as dramatic roles in films like Lowriders and Damien Chazelle's Whiplash.

Her first collaboration with Smith came when he asked her to bring her superhero skills to his 2019 comedy Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. In that film, she lambasted her Arrowverse persona by playing the superhero Chronic. The weed-themed hero originally appeared in the fictional comic book Bluntman and Chronic in Smith's 1997 outing Chasing Amy.

That cameo led to another fruitful collaboration between the two in his newest film, the sequel Clerks III. With Masters of the Universe: Revolution now capping off a trilogy of projects they have worked on together, it is easy to see the throughline. Smith is calling upon her to breathe life into another iconic hero, harnessing her legacy as Supergirl yet again, just over a year after the show went off the air.

Melissa Benoist to Replace Sarah Michelle Gellar as Teela in Netflix’s New ‘Masters of the Universe’ Series

The ”Supergirl“ star joins husband Chris Wood, who voices He-Man in the animated show

Sharon Knolle | March 8, 2023

“Supergirl” star Melissa Benoist has joined the voice cast of Netflix’s He-Man adaptation, “Masters of the Universe: Revolution” as heroine Teela, Mattel said Wednesday. The animated series will debut on the streamer in 2024.

The All-Star cast includes Benoist’s husband Chris Wood as the mighty He-Man, Mark Hamill as villainous Skeletor, and William Shatner in a yet-to-be announced role.

“I jumped at the opportunity to work alongside my friend, Kevin Smith and join the ‘Revolution’ family as another bold and fearless heroine,” Benoist said. “I look forward to sharing the next evolution of Teela’s story with fans.”

Set as the follow-up to 2021’s “Revelation,” “Revolution” finds Teela, He-Man and the rest of the Masters as they struggle to save Eternia from the tangles of darkness. The character was voiced in “Revelation” by “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Wolf Pack” star Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Per the logline, “‘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.”

“On the heels of our 40th anniversary, He-Man is more prevalent in pop culture than ever before, which is why we’re especially excited to bring the force that is Melissa Benoist into the fold,” said Fred Soulie, senior VP and general manager at Mattel Television. “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.”

This is Benoist’s third collaboration with Smith: She appeared in his films “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” and “Clerks III.” She previously worked with Wood in the earlier seasons of Supergirl, where he recurred as superhero Mon-El.

Benoist will next appear in HBO Max’s “The Girl on the Bus.” She previously played Marley on “Glee” and appeared in films including “Whiplash” and “Patriots Day.”

“Masters of the Universe: Revolution” is executive produced by Mattel’s Fred Soulie, Rob David and Christopher Keenan, as well as Smith and Ted Biaselli.

Wonder if Melissa will geek out knowing she'll be, aside working with husband Chris, working with JAMES TIBERIUS KIRK of Star Trek.

By the way, in the OG Masters of the Universe, which this person remembers from back in the day, Linda Gary was Teela as well as The Sorceress.

Melissa is working with two legends of sci fi. Star Trek's William Shatner and Star Wars's Mark Hamill Plus all those Arrowverse connections.

Kevin Smith directed her on Supergirl and he directed episodes of The Flash
Of course she worked with her husband on Supergirl.
Mark Hamill played The Trickster on The Flash.

Mattel has announced that Supergirl's Melissa Benoist has joined the voice cast of the upcoming He-Man adaptation, Masters of the Universe: Revolution.

Benoist, who is fresh off her run as the titular superhero Kara Danvers/Kara Zor-El in the hit CW show Supergirl, will voice the heroine Teela in the upcoming series, which serves as a sequel to Kevin Smith's acclaimed 2021 limited animated series, Masters of the Universe: Revelation. "I jumped at the opportunity to work alongside my friend, Kevin Smith and join the Revolution family as another bold and fearless heroine," said Benoist. "I look forward to sharing the next evolution of Teela’s story with fans." Teela was previously voiced by Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wolf Pack) in Revelation.

"On the heels of our 40th anniversary, He-Man is more prevalent in pop culture than ever before, which is why we’re especially excited to bring the force that is Melissa Benoist into the fold," added Mattel Television's Senior Vice President and General Manager Fred Soulie. "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."

He-Man and Teela's Story Is Far From Over

Masters of the Universe: Revolution was announced in June 2022 during Netflix's Geeked Week, with the upcoming follow-up set to follow Teela, He-Man and the rest of the Masters as they "struggle to save Eternia from the tangles of darkness. Revolution is an all-new story that focuses on the classic He-Man vs. Skeletor rivalry in a way audiences have never seen before," reads the series' official synopsis. "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."

Masters of the Universe: Revolution will mark Benoist’s third collaboration with Kevin Smith, having previously appeared in the films Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (2019) and Clerks III (2022). Her role as Teela will also be her second time working with her husband Chris Wood, who appeared in multiple seasons of Supergirl as Mon-El. Wood will reprise his role from Revelation as He-Man, with legendary voice actor Mark Hamill also back as Skeletor. They will be joined by Star Trek's William Shatner who boarded the series in July 2022 in an undisclosed role.

Masters of the Universe: Revolution will debut on Netflix in 2024.

Thanks for posting this and keeping us up to date on Melissa. Not only is Melissa a great singer and actress but she's also a loyal soul. it's said that an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness.;) I think she is going to have a lot of fun with Kevin Smith.

If the Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists SAG-AFTRA goes on strike there won’t be actors doing panels at SDCC. Per The Wrap
Along with stepping away from all film and television productions worldwide, actors will not be permitted to take part in promotional work of any kind, including press junkets, film premieres, and fan events like San Diego Comic-Con. Actors are permitted to attend the pop culture convention as long as they don’t take part in any panels that promote a specific film or television show or discuss any current or future work. While attendance is allowed, individuals with knowledge of the publicist meeting tell TheWrap that SAG-AFTRA would prefer that its members completely skip the event later this month.
My guess is if SAG-AFTRA does call a strike actors along with the already on strike Writers Guild of America WGA members will picket near SDCC instead of attending. SAG-AFTRA may go on strike if a deal isn’t reached by midnight pacific time on 7/12/2023.

Well,it looks like the strike is happening.

https://screenrant.com/sag-actors-strike-negotiations-statement/

Now, SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher and Chief Negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland issue a statement recommending an actors strike, with the final vote to authorize set for this morning. Should the National Board vote to authorize, all ongoing productions will be suspended, and actors will not be allowed to promote upcoming projects in interviews or at events such as San Diego Comic-Con. Read an excerpt of the statement below:

From the time negotiations began on June 7, the members of our Negotiating Committee and our staff team have spent many long days, weekends and holidays working to achieve a deal that protects you, the working actors and performers on whom this industry relies. As you know, over the past decade, your compensation has been severely eroded by the rise of the streaming ecosystem. Furthermore, artificial intelligence poses an existential threat to creative professions, and all actors and performers deserve contract language that protects them from having their identity and talent exploited without consent and pay. Despite our team’s dedication to advocating on your behalf, the AMPTP has refused to acknowledge that enormous shifts in the industry and economy have had a detrimental impact on those who perform labor for the studios.

The strike has been authorized, cue the pictures of some very famous people on the picket lines.
In a Thursday memo signed by union president Fran Drescher and national executive director and chief negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland, SAG-AFTRA members were ordered “to cease rendering all services and performing all work covered by the TV/Theatrical Contracts” once the strike begins.

This article in People outlines the strike rules for SAG-AFTRA members which include. Work on TV shows and movies will halt, shutting down production completely. Off-camera work including re-recording dialogue, voice acting, narration and stunt coordination is forbidden. Promoting new projects—including tours, personal appearances, and attendance at premieres and screenings—is also not allowed. Interviews are also off the table, as well as podcast appearances and promotion on social media. Actors cannot appear at any conventions, fan expos or festivals in order to promote “any project that was made under the TV/theatrical agreement”.

There’s always a possibility that a new contract is negotiated by next week in time for SDCC, personally I don’t think that’s going to happen. I think the actors are in this long haul just like the writers.

I don't think so either.The AMPTP are pretty dug in right now on not budging on some of the WGA & SAG's big points. There was even a report this week that the AMPTP is willing to wait it out for like six to 8 months until writers start losing their homes and not be able to pay for food in order to force them to accept what the AMPTP will offer.

These strikes could be going for a long while.

Well as people here were talking about the strike in Hollywood, it has ended. But frankly, given the current leftist woke state of things, and that 5 of the 6 major studios are run by people with links to the Chinese Communist Party...I could care less about what happens there.

According to Deadline Masters Of The Universe: Revolution is set to hit Netflix on January 25, 2024. I don’t currently have Netflix, curse their password sharing rules which stopped me from mooching. I’ll put it on my list of things to watch when there’s several things I want to watch so it’s worth it to pay for a month before canceling.
