With the release of Masters of the Universe: Revelations upon us, we thought it would be a good time to give a rundown of who the legendary characters in this universe actually are, so here are the seven most important characters from Mattel’s famous toyline. Noah Centineo Starrer He-Man Movie Masters of the Universe to Release on March 5, 2021.
Masters of The Universe is defined by this one character, He-Man. He is the leading man of the universe as he is defined by the extreme masculinity of the 80’s. He has super strength and his alter ego is that of Prince Adam. Once Prince Adam, who possesses the Power Sword, say “I have the power of Grayskull!” he turns into He-Man. He-Man's main goal is to defend the realm of Eternia and the secrets of Castle Grayskull from his arch-nemesis Skeletor and his evil forces. Chris Wood is voicing the character in the Kevin Smith series.
Teela is the Captain of The Royal Guard of the palace of Eternos and responsible for training Prince Adam while being unaware of his identity as He-Man. Teela often assists He-Man in his battles and is going to be one of the major characters in Masters of The Universe: Revelations. Sarah Michelle Gellar is voicing the character in the Kevin Smith series.
Cringer is the cat of Prince Adam and is of green colour with yellow striped scars on his forehead.
