Netflix has announced six new series coming to the online network, including an updated She-Ra series.
From Eisner Award-winning author and executive producer Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes, Nimona) comes a modern take on the ‘80s girl power icon for a new generation of young fans. The trailblazing property originally debuted in 1985 to satisfy overwhelming demand for a female lead fantasy series. With Stevenson’s unique voice at the helm, fans are in store for an epic and timely tale that celebrates female friendship and empowerment, lead by a warrior princess tailor made for today. The series will be available to Netflix members worldwide in 2018.
Netflix also announced The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants, Torllhunters (part 3) 3 Below, and… The Boss Baby: Back in Business. Well, I guess 4 out of 5 ain’t bad.
In the ’80s, She-Ra was a perfect compliment to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and it was definitely a favorite at our house, as my sister had someone to look up to. By 1985 I was a bit outside the range of the target demographic, but I found the show to be enjoyable and on par with what remained of He-Man at the time.
