An audacious self-tape audition unlike any made before for the role of Teela in the upcoming Masters of the Universe motion picture.

Teela (Emily Ashby), a heroic warrior of Eternia, protects the Sword of Power from three wanderers in an action packed fight to claim its power for themselves.

Produced as a self tape audition by Emily Ashby and Jonathan Martin for the role of Teela for the announced upcoming Masters of the Universe motion picture. While it is not intended to be a “fan film,” the production team’s hope is that the film will be received well by the Masters of the Universe fan community and motion picture industry.

The film also stars Christian Kang Bachini as “Cy-Am,” Halem Medina as “Bonan,” and Elwon Blakly as “Chain Male.” The original music was composed by Gerrit Wunder (CW’s Stargirl, Netflix’s Slumberland) and sound design by 10-time Emmy nominee Patrick Hogan (Cobra Kai, The Umbrella Academy). Visual effects created by our frequent collaborator Nicholas Fletcher of Tempered Pixel. Our stunt coordinator was long time Chinese cinema stunt actor and coordinator Christian ‘Kang” Bachini. The end credits track “Heartless Madness” by Dynazty was used with permission courtesy of AFM Records.

The film was released simultaneously for both a private and online viewing audience in January 2023.
