Netflix is unleashing the Honor of Grayskull a few days early. Dreamworks’ new ‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’ will stride out on Tuesday, November 13, rather than its previously announced release date of Friday, Nov. 16. This revision, spearheaded by comic book creator Noelle Stevenson (‘Lumberjanes’, Nimona’) was announced last December along with an entire wave of cartoon series from Dreamworks, including ‘The Boss Baby: Back in Business’ and ‘The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants’. While most of the other shows have premiered, ‘She-Ra’ was perhaps the most anticipated, so fans will likely be pleased that the wait has been shortened just a bit.
Before the show’s official release, a new trailer has arrived, featuring all new footage, including some glimpses of characters that haven’t yet been revealed, like Entrapta, Perfuma, and Sea Hawk. It is also set to the series’ new theme song, ‘Warriors’ by Aaliyah Rose. Check it out below:
Adora’s destiny turns out to be far greater than she could have ever imagined. As the legendary
warrior princess, She-Ra, it’s up to her and a spirited group of rebel princesses to restore balance
in Etheria by defending it from the place she once called home. Join The Rebellion November 13th
when She-Ra and the Princesses of Power begins streaming on Netflix!
While some elements from the ’80s version have been updated, some remain the same. In this take, Adora was still raised by Hordak and Shadow Weaver and taught to believe that they were benevolent rulers and that the Princess Alliance (Great Rebellion) were the forces of evil. Unlike in the previous incarnation, this She-Ra is He-Man-free, so instead of him bestowing her with the Sword of Protection, she seems to find it on her own, King Arthur-style.
The cast of ‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’ includes Aimee Carrero as Adora/She-Ra, plus Lauren Ash as Scorpia, Krystal Joy Brown as Netossa, Jordan Fisher as Seahawk, Karen Fukuhara as Glimmer, Keston John as Hordak, Merit Leighton as Frosta, Vella Lovell as Mermista, AJ Michalka as Catra, Sandra Oh as Castaspella, Genesis Rodriguez as Perfuma, Marcus Scribner as Bow, Reshma Shetty as Angella, Lorraine Toussaint as Shadow Weaver, and Christine Woods as Entrapta.
Catch ‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’ in less than two weeks, on Tuesday, November 13 on Netflix.
