Noelle Stevenson’s She-Ra: The Princesses of Power reboot at Netflix is coming along nicely. Dreamworks Television released some new preview art for the series, and announced that the show will debut on November 16, 2018.
The program is an updated version of the ’80s She-Ra: Princess of Power which itself was a spinoff of the monster hit He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Stevenson is the Eisner-winning creator of Lumberjanes and Nimona.
There has already been some backlash from adult male fans who are upset that the design of a cartoon character for children does not appeal to them — sexually — the way the old design did. I think I speak with us all when I say, “That’s the real problem in society: not enough children’s programming is designed to turn on middle-aged men.”
Here is our first look at (presumably) She-Ra, Bow, Glimmer and Catra:
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.
