She-Ra and the Princesses of PowerThe synopsis of the show is as follows:

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.

From Eisner Award-winning author and executive producer Noelle Stevenson(Lumberjanes, Nimona) and executive producer Chuck Austen (Dawn of the Croods, Steven Universe) comes a modern take on the ‘80s girl power icon for a new generation of young fans.”

The character debuted in 1985 to cater to the growing demand for a female-lead animated series. Though not as famous as He-Man, She-Ra is bound to take a truly epic journey in this Netflix incarnation and, knowing the humor and intelligence Stevenson always brings to her work, this version is sure to be a great take on the beloved character.

Watch out for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power which is set to be released later this year on Netflix.
