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.
