Netflix announced in December 2017 that it would be teaming up with Dreamworks Animation to bring She-Ra back to the small screen. Now they’ve released a first look.
The reboot series, which will be showrun by Lumberjanes creator Noelle Stevenson, was touted by Netflix as “an epic and timely tale that celebrates female friendship and empowerment, led by a warrior princess tailor-made for today.”
With the title of the series now officially set as She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, it would seem that the focus will be on the wider, female-centric casts, as opposed to solely on She-Ra. However, the original princess of power is front and center on the teaser poster, donning what appears to be her iconic outfit.
The synopsis, from Netflix, reads, “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.”
Netflix also announced the full voice cast for the series, and shared a photograph of them all together.

Aimee Carrero (Young and Hungry) will play Adora/She-Ra, with Jordan Fisher (Dancing with the Stars) as Seahawk, Marcus Scribner (black-ish) as Bow, Lorraine Toussaint (Orange is the New Black) as Shadow Weaver, Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) as Castaspella, Karen Fukuhara as Glimmer, AJ Michalka as Catra, Reshma Shetty as Angella, Keston John as Hordak, Lauren Ash as Scorpia, Christine Woods as Entrapta, Genesis Rodriguez as Perfuma, Vella Lovell as Mermista, Merit Leighton as Frosta, and Krystal Joy Brown as Netossa.
Missing from the cast are, mostly comedic relief, characters Madam Razz and Kowl. There was also no mention of whether She-Ra’s twin brother, He-Man, would make an appearance.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Noelle Stephenson said, “She–Ra was ahead of its time. I’m so excited to bring these stories of female power and love and friendship back now when it seems like we need them more than ever.”
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is slated to debut in late 2018.
