The 1980’s were a great time for children’s animation with shows like The Smurfs, original DuckTales, and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Granted these cartoons were essentially glorified toy commercials but they made the childhoods of that generation. Dreamwork acquired many classic 80s cartoons and started their relaunch with 2016’s Voltron: Legendary Defender and now it is She-Ra: Princess of Power that is getting a reboot.
The show appears to be in good hands with Executive producer Noelle Stevenson developing the show inline with canon origin. Despite Stevenson not even being born when the series was released an Entertainment Weekly interview showed that she has a deep understanding of the character. Knowing the source material is the key to revitalizing a series and is a key point in why recent reboots have failed. The series will likely be exploring Adora’s life with the Evil Horde and seeing the evergrowing world of Etheria and possibly Eternia.
“We’ve really started from the same starting point where the original show started from because Adora has such a great backstory” “As She-Ra, she doesn’t know how to act. This is all new to her, and it’s a little clumsy at first. It’s like an uncomfortable suit. She’s like, ‘Okay, here I am. I’m very glamorous, I’m very strong, people are looking up to me — because I’m very tall.’”
With She-Ra and the Princesses of Power acknowledging points in the series that made it beloved and issues that could be fixed this Netflix series has a bright future.
