Rebooting a classic property isn’t something new at all and the practice even hits classic animated series. The latest is a reboot of the “She-Ra Princess Of Power” which was a spin-off of “He-Man and The Masters Of The Universe”. The new series will stream exclusively on Netflix and is aimed at a slightly younger audience. So, for the glory of Greyskull, I give you the teaser trailer for “She-Ra and the Princesses Of Power”.
The Premise: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power follows Adora, an orphan raised by the Horde, an evil army led by Hordak, who rules the planet Etheria with an iron fist. One day, after getting lost in the woods, Adora finds a magic sword that transforms her into the titular Princess of Power, She-Ra. After realizing the suffering that the Horde has inflicted on Etheria and its inhabitants, Adora joins the Resistance in the fight against the Horde through rebuilding the Princess Alliance, a group of other magical girls that once all opposed Hordak. Adora’s newfound allegiance to the Resistance pits her against her former best friend Catra, whose sense of abandonment, malicious ambitions, and the disappearance of her former friend enables her to rise in the ranks of the Horde to become the new heroine’s mortal enemy.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: This teaser was a tease of a teaser with not much to absorb about the show so let’s hope for a longer one soon. When the original “She-Ra” series aired, I was not tuning in since this was geared more towards the girls than the guys. To be honest, I loved the idea of “Masters Of The Universe” and the world of toys that it introduced to everyone, but I was more of a fan of the “GI Joe: A Real American Hero” program that ran around the same time. This new series seemed aimed at a younger audience which is awesome in my humble opinion based on so many of my friends having younger girls in their family circle. Anything that helps keep the comics, toys and series of this kind in play I am behind. I am thinking that we shall see scores of action figures coming down the pike. So that is all I have for now but when a longer trailer arrives I will post it. Stay tuned.
