Netflix has released a look at artwork from “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power,” its upcoming reboot of the iconic 1980s cartoon series spun-off from “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe”.
The new series offers us a younger Princess Adora but otherwise holds true to the original’s pilot with showrunner Noelle Stevenson explaining to EW the basics of her character and her journey to heroism:
“She’s separated from her family as a baby, she’s sent to another planet, she’s adopted by the villain overlord and raised by him in this evil army. She’s been raised to believe that the villains are doing the right thing and that the Princesses are the evil ones.
And so we follow her as she has this crisis of faith; she’s been very sheltered her whole life and as she starts to experience the world, she realizes that there’s more to this than she knew, that maybe there’s a reason they were called the Evil Horde. That maybe they were evil.
As She-Ra, she doesn’t know how to act. This is all new to her, and it’s a little clumsy at first. It’s like an uncomfortable suit. She’s like, ‘Okay, here I am. I’m very glamorous, I’m very strong, people are looking up to me 0 because I’m very tall.'”
“She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” is slated to begin streaming on Netflix from November 16th.
