Netflix and DreamWorks animation is ready to make waves on the small screen with their upcoming series She-Ra and The Princesses of Power. The Netflix original series is based on the characters of famous animated series He-man. Going by the name the series will be a female-focused action adventure drama which ensures you a lot of fun and power packed performances.
The plot of She-Ra and The Princesses of Power is the story of the alter ego Princess Adora who was kidnapped in her childhood by the evil horde’s leader Hordak. Later in life, she comes to know about her exact origin and also that she is the long-lost twin sister of Prince Adam of Ethenia. As she returns to her kingdom, she is granted the sword of protection which transforms her into the mythical warrior princess She-Ra. After possessing the power of the sword, she begins her fight against the evil and on the way of doing that she unites with magical princesses to form a rebellion. It will be interesting to see how creators reference the He-Man in the series or we may even get a cameo from the famous character down the line.
The Eisner award-winning author and executive producer Noelle Stevenson(Lumberjanes, Nimona) and executive producer Chuck Austen (Dawn of the Croods, Steven Universe) are at the helm of the series that will take us on a magical adventure accompanied by strong and beautiful women. It is set to release globally in 2018 itself and ahead of the start of production Netflix has announced the all-female studded star cast and revealed a classy poster showing She-Ra in all her glory.
