Netflix’s next cartoon revival, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, is getting a jump on its original debut plans.
According to i09, the series, which was expected on November 16th, will debut three days earlier on the 13th. The modernized update of the 1980s Filmation She-Ra: Princess of Power sees Horde soldier Adora (Aimee Carrero) taking up the mantle of She-Ra and learning the truth of the Horde as an occupational force on the planet Etheria. Breaking with everything she knows, Adora swears loyalty to the emerging resistance and allies with a coalition of princesses dedicated to forcing the Horde off their world.
The series also features the voice talents of AJ Michalka, Karen Fukuhara and Marcus Scribner. Nimona author Noelle Stevenson is on board as executive producer, and if you’ve ever read that graphic novel or her work on Jumberjanes, her influence on She-Ra is readily apparent.
Based on the talent involved and Netflix’s success in recreating 1980s cartoons with Voltron: Legendary Defender, we choose She-Ra as one of our picks for the November.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power debuts November 13th on Netflix.
