    1. New On Netflix UK Real She-ra was about a strong female role model who was strong and powerful but also compassionate and kind in a time where there where not really that many.
      This looks like She-ra is 12, i suppose there are plenty of good female role models these days they feel like maybe its not necessary to give young females that same role model.
      but tbh kids will forget about this new she-ra in months where as the real She-ra that i grew with stayed with me forever. not to mention its the 40 somethings of today that remember the old She-ra that wanted a remake to be proud not this stuff. They did the same kiddie style child like characters with thundercats and that didnt last long. I dont think they get it, if remaking something from the 80’s its the adults that want to watch and pay to watch to have that nostalgia brought back in modern hd with just better quality and stories, not even adult stories just entertaining ones that kids can watch too. I wanted the 80’s She-ra with todays graphics and storytelling. Same goes for teen titians that was newer but they did the whole chibi style and that didnt go down well and was no longer for adults that loved the original series, same with the more childish Spider-man too.
      just my opinion just feels a bit heart wrenching to see a character i loved so much not be the strong woman i remember her being. obv only seen one still but she i not who she was meant to be.

    2. Silver Cee This isn’t a cartoon targeted at adults though (regardless of any nostalgia adults may have). It’s essentially a new cartoon for kids that just happens to be based on something from t’old days.

    1. New On Netflix UK, I dunno, I know these are stills but this looks kind of like the animation style of Voltron, but less refined – less subtle detail. Its almost halfway between Voltron and Adventure time, without the quality of the former or the charm of the latter.

  1. crap! – all i can say. i dont see the point of rebooting she-ra when pre-kindergarden kids are the targeting audience.
    then please make a new show with new characters which fits better- but thats too much work isn’t it? better copy something from the past were a story and characters already excist and call it a reboot- how lazy is that. no new creative ideas anymore these days?
    the original story, setting and characters just dont fit for pre-kindergarden stuff without adapting everything in a way that hurts and destroys the original concept.
    but ok here we go- we have a 10 year old she-ra who’s gonna fight with catra about lolipops. exchange them with teletubis and the show would propably much better.
