She-Ra and the Princesses of Power follows Adora, an orphan raised by the Horde. This evil army is 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.

I think I should’ve titled this review Netflix She-Ra. Why you ask. Because its a remake of an 80’s cartoon called She-Ra which was a spin-off of He-man. However this new She-Ra series is a lot different than the old one in both art and Narrative. with that said lets start the review.

She-ra cartoon is trying to be diverse in every way. The story is typical in away, good vs evil. Watching the show I felt like the good kids were just spoiled brats. while the evil side characters felt more alive and had better character development. I liked how She-ra’s still trying to weld her power and the more that both sides learn the more you realize that nothing about that world have been revealed yet.

In terms of animation, She-ra is a very well animated show. In terms of voice acting, I think that they made a great job with the voice actors/actresses choice. Also the music have upped since the old cartoon. All and all I think its a great cartoon I don’t think its for all ages though. I think its more suited to ages 13 and above.

Overall Rate: 7.5/10
