By the power of Grayskull! Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alicia Silverstone are lending their vocal talents for Netflix’s new animation, Masters of the Universe: Revelation, which launched this week.

Developed by Kevin Smith, the hotly-anticipated series is a sequel to the popular 1980’s children’s cartoon, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and picks up right where many of the characters’ journeys left off nearly 40 years ago.

After a cataclysmic battle between He-Man (Chris Wood) and Skeletor (Mark Hamill), the planet of Eternia is fractured and the Guardians of Grayskull are scattered. 

It’s now up to Teela (voiced by Gellar) to reunite the broken band of heroes, and solve the mystery of the missing Sword of Power in a race against time to restore Eternia and prevent the end of the universe.

The stellar cast also features Silverstone as Queen Marlena, alongside Harley Quinn Smith as Ileena and Lena Headey as Evil-Lyn.

Gellar, known for her roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Star Wars: Rebels, revealed that she relished playing Teela in the new series.

She said: “Anyone who knows me knows that I have a fondness for the chosen one; the girl who doesn’t know that she has any power and then finds out that she has all the power. 

“And to me, that’s the most important life lesson to learn and to teach as a female, and something that I really try to impart to my daughter; that you can do anything anybody else can do. It’s about putting your mind to something and believing in yourself.”

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

Engaging

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.

Celebrating

There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.

Pioneering

In the first collaboration between media outlets from different faiths, Jewish News worked with British Muslim TV and Church Times to produce a list of young activists leading the way on interfaith understanding.

Campaigning

Royal Mail issued a stamp honouring Holocaust hero Sir Nicholas Winton after a Jewish News campaign attracted more than 100,000 backers. Jewish Newsalso produces special editions of the paper highlighting pressing issues including mental health and Holocaust remembrance.

Easy access

In an age when news is readily accessible, Jewish News provides high-quality content free online and offline, removing any financial barriers to connecting people.

Voice of our community to wider society

The Jewish News team regularly appears on TV, radio and on the pages of the national press to comment on stories about the Jewish community. Easy access to the paper on the streets of London also means Jewish News provides an invaluable window into the community for the country at large.

We hope you agree all this is worth preserving.
