MOTU: Revelation: Sarah Michelle Gellar on Teela, Kevin Smith & More

A little more than a week ago, Kevin Smith announced Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Battlestar Galactica) was the composer on Mattel Television and Netflix's animated sequel series Masters of the Universe: Revelation and shared a look-listen of a sample of McCreary's MOTU work. Though in its early "draft"stage, the transformation scene with Chris Wood's (Supergirl, The Vampire Diaries) Prince Adam uttering the famous words already impressed (you can check it out here). Now, Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Cruel Intentions) is offering her thoughts on voicing Teela, Captain of the Royal Guard at the palace of Eternos responsible for training and protecting Prince Adam while also fighting side-by-side with He-Man.

During an interview with Mario Lopez on his ON with Mario Lopez podcast (starting at the 4:15 mark below), Gellar gave fans every reason to be excited. Admitting that it's one of the first projects she's been this excited about in a long time and calling Smith "one of the best directors I've ever had the opportunity to work with," the Buffy star discusses what fans can expect and how some the characters that are returning surprised even a fan like her:
