I don’t know that I really need to say anything else other than, ‘Look at that teaser image!’ Netflix and DreamWorks just revealed this amazing image of the upcoming She-Ra and the Princess of Power series releasing globally later this year.
They also released details about the cast — Aimee Carrero (Elena of Avalor) stars as Adora/She-Ra, Karen Fukuhara (Suicide Squad) as Glimmer, AJ Michalka (The Goldbergs) as Catra, Marcus Scribner (black-ish) as Bow, Reshma Shetty (Royal Pains) as Angella, Lorraine Toussaint (Orange Is the New Black) as Shadow Weaver, Keston John (The Good Place) as Hordak, Lauren Ash (Superstore) as Scorpia, Christine Woods (Hello Ladies) as Entrapta, Genesis Rodriguez (Time After Time) as Perfuma, Jordan Fisher (Grease Live!) as Seahawk, Vella Lovell (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Mermista, Merit Leighton (Alexa & Katie) as Frosta, Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) as Castaspella, and Krystal Joy Brown (Motown: The Musical) as Netossa.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is the story of an orphan named Adora (Carrero), who leaves behind her former life in the evil Horde when she discovers a magic sword that transforms her into the mythical warrior princess She-Ra. Along the way, she finds a new family in the Rebellion as she unites a group of magical princesses in the ultimate fight against evil.
The new series is written by GeekDad and GeekMom favorite Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes, Nimona) and executive produced by Chuck Austen (Dawn of the Croods, Steven Universe). I loved She-ra (and He-man) as a kid and cannot wait to see the updated version of such a girl power icon. The new show promises to be an epic and timely adventure that celebrates friendship and empowerment, led by a warrior princess tailor-made for today.
Personally, I also can’t wait for all the new She-Ra cosplay that is going to come of this, but I may be a bit biased. These are an original and evening gown version of She-Ra by Harbeastie. I’m also really looking forward to another show that provides awesome role models and representation for both my son and daughter!
