About

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is an American animated cartoon series created by Noelle Stevenson airing as a Netflix Original Series exclusive. A reboot of Filmation's She-Ra: Princess of Power, which in itself was a spin-off of the show He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, it follows Adora and her fight against the evil Horde as the heroine She-Ra, the Princess of Power. The show premiered on November 13th, 2018 and was met with generally positive reviews upon release.

Premise

The show centers around Adora, a teenager raised on the planet Etheria by the tyrant Hordak, who rules over the planet with an iron fist with his army, the Horde. After getting lost in the woods while on a training mission to join the Horde, Adora comes across the magical Sword of Protection, transforming her into the titular She-Ra, the Princess of Power. Realizing the suffering of her people, she joins a small resistance group with her duty of rebuilding Princess Alliance, while leaving her old life behind, including her former childhood friend Catra, who has stayed with the Horde.[1]
