'She-Ra: And The Princesses of Power' Teaser Art and Cast Revealed

Late last year it was announced that 80's icon She-Ra would return, in a new series for DreamWorks Animation and Netflix. Beyond the fact that it would be headed up by Noelle Stevenson (author of the comics Lumberjanes and Nimona) details were thin on the ground. The series is set to arrive sometime in 2018. We still don't have a more specific date, but we do have a whole new set of details, including casting and a debut teaser image.

The series is now going by the title She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. In the original 1985 series, the main character Adora was introduced as the long-lost twin-sister of Prince Adam of Eternia.- aka He-man. This new version seems to ditch that, casting her as an orphan, but retains her origin as a member of the Evil Horde. She leaves her old life behind when she finds the magic sword that transforms her into the warrior princess She-Ra.

Notably, it's "princesses of power" this time, not just one: Adora/She-Ra will recruit a group of magical princesses to assist her in the fight against evil.

Dreamworks and Netflix have announced the cast:
