Chris Wood Says Masters of the Universe: Revelation Is Highly Relatable

Masters of the Universe: Revelation is highly relatable, in an extremely unrelatable way, says Adam/He-Man voice actor Chris Wood.

He-Man is BACK in Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe: Revelation — which comes to Netflix with Part 1 on July 23rd. Chris Wood is the voice of Prince Adam and He-Man, and in an exclusive interview he discusses taking on the iconic role, and the fact that he has been a fan since he was a little boy.

Wood jokes that he had plenty of practice to take on this role because he would run around his house screaming “By the power of Grayskull!” when he was growing up. Wood is now a father himself, and he cannot wait to share the new Masters of the Universe: Revelation toys with his son when he gets older.

However, this show is not all fun and games. As Wood describes, it actually explores some heavy repercussions and consequences for hiding things from loved ones. “With Adam and He-Man in the show, there’s an interesting exploration of a revelation that has to do with Adam/He-Man and the weight of that deception.”

Because yes, as fans know, Prince Adam is He-Man, however, there are some people that are close with him he has not told. Wood says that in Masters of the Universe: Revelation, who he has told and who he hasn’t told will be something that is brought up. Not just that, it sounds like he is going to have to face the consequences that come with having such a massive part of your life not revealed to those who are the closest to you.

Wood also teases that there will be some fallout that comes with that, while adding, “I think it is a relatable thing in a highly unrelatable circumstance — I mean, he’s He-Man. The show explores it in a really unique way — and in Part 2 as well.”
