Headey, who controlled malice during her reign as Cersei Lannister on Game of Thrones, will help Hamill’s Skeletor as his “evil witch” accomplice, Evil-Lyn.

The classic cartoon is set on the fictional planet Eternia ruled by King Randor and Queen Marlena who are the parents of He-Man – more particularly his bourgeois identity Prince Adam.
Prince Adam transforms into his supernatural alter ego when he grasps the Sword of Power and pronounces the phrase “By the Power of Grayskull.”
This action grants the prince with insurmountable power, making him the most powerful man in the universe.
In typical superhero format, He-Man uses his supernatural powers to ward off the evil that threatens Eternia.
