Netflix has shown the first official teaser poster for the upcoming She-Ra and The Princess of Power cartoon series by DreamWorks Animation Television. No trailer, and no real premise has been stated, but regardless, I want to see! I know the one animation drawing that was shown was not exactly welcomed among many fans, but it was just one image.


The official synopsis of the series states: 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.


The cast involves: Aimee Carrero stars as Adora/She-Ra; Karen Fukuhara as Glimmer; AJ Michalka as Catra, Marcus Scribner as Bow; Reshma Shetty as Angella; Lorraine Toussaint as Shadow Weaver; Keston John as Hordak; Lauren Ash as Scorpia; Christine Woods as Entrapta; Genesis Rodriguez as Perfuma; Jordan Fisher as Seahawk; Vella Lovell as Mermista; Merit Leighton as Frosta; Sandra Oh as Castaspella; and Krystal Joy Brown as Netossa.


I’m so excited for this! Netflix and Dreamworks Animation announced that there will be a new She-Ra cartoon set for Netflix in 2018. I’m a huge Masters of the Universe and Princess of Power fan. So this brings out the uber geek in me. There’s some other cartoons coming out too, which I’m not a fan of particularly, but I know others may be interested in them. These include:
Trolls: The Beat Goes On! (continuing after the movie), Boss Baby (also a continuation after the first film), Captain Underpants, Harvey Street Kids, and the third season of Trollhunters and the series called 3 Below, which is the second installment of Tales of Arcadia Trilogy. The site Variety gives the full details on the other shows.


Why is He-Man not getting his own show? Who knows? Maybe someone at Netflix said, let’s give his sister a chance. Or maybe there’s some movie idea being planned (yeah that’s been said for like 30 years). Or maybe he will be a re-occurring character on the show. Whenever I find out anything about She-Ra, I will immediately post about it. Currently the 1980s series is on Netflix, and I think I may re-watch a few episodes in the next couple of days.
