Netflix and Dreamworks have just announced a new animated She-Ra: Princess of Power cartoon for 2018! The new animated series will be showrun by the Eisner-winning Lumberjanes co-creater Noelle Stevenson. The cartoon will be a reboot of the classic 1985 series, which was a spin-off to the popular He-Man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon by Filmation.
Here is the full description from Netflix and Dreamworks (via Variety):
From Eisner Award-winning author and executive producer Noelle Stevenson 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 demand for a female-led fantasy series. The series is described as an epic and timely tale that celebrates female friendship and empowerment, led by a warrior princess tailor made for today. The series will be available to Netflix members worldwide in 2018.
The new She-Ra cartoon has been in the works now for almost 2 years! Noelle Stevenson posted the good news on her Twitter today after the series was announced.
I’ve been working on this in secret along with some really incredible talent for almost two years now. Stay tuned for more details over the next few months – can’t wait for you to see what we’re doing.
