She-Ra will be among the list of six new animated titles coming to Netflix in 2018. Produced by Noelle Stevenson (known for her work on Ducktales), the updated cartoon will be a modern version of its predecessor She-Ra: Princess Of Power, which was a spin-off of He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe.
Here’s DreamWorks’s official description of the 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, led by a warrior princess tailor made for today. The series will be available to Netflix members worldwide in 2018.
It should be noted that She-Ra won’t be needing any (He) Man: The series will be released without a counterpart.
There’s no surprise that Netflix and DreamWorks have decided to partner up to offer viewers more animated series after its huge successes with their other action-adventure series, including Voltron Legendary Defender and Trollhunters. DreamWorks also promises to release more family-friendly, animated Netflix series based on The Boss Baby, Captain Underpants, and Trolls and more!
