We’ve Finally Got Our First Look at Netflix’s New ‘She-Ra’ Reboot

As we’ve previously discussed, 2018 is the year of the reboot. Some of them may be a bit baffling, but there are a few we’re excited for. And near the top of the list is Netflix’s She-Ra. However, until now, there hasn’t been a lot of information available. Thankfully, that’s just started to change — yesterday, Netflix just released our first look at the series in the form of a She-Ra poster image.

The She-Ra poster itself is still relatively secretive; She-Ra herself is cloaked in shadow as her Sword of Protection sends out a spectrum of light. However — we do get the name of the new series: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. The original series was She Ra: Princess of Power, so we’re definitely intrigued by the move to what sounds like a more team-oriented cartoon.

Netflix released a statement giving a bit more information about the show — including a short synopsis. According to the statement: “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is the story of an orphan named Adora, 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.”

Netflix also released the cast list for the show — Aimee Carrero (of Elena of Avalor) is Adora/She-Ra. She’ll be costarring with AJ Michalka (of The Goldbergs and Steven Universe), Orange Is the New Black‘s Lorraine Toussaint, Vella Lovell (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), and most excitingly, Sandra Oh.

The showrunner and executive producer is Noelle Stevenson. Stevenson is the author of the Eisner Award-winning comic series Lumberjanes, about campers fighting supernatural forces at a “Camp for Hardcore Lady Types.” Lumberjanes has been praised for its queer representation.

A release date still has not been announced, but She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is expected to debut later this year.
