‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’ charges onto Netflix next week, but ahead of time the streaming service has unleashed a new clip from the show. Catra, voiced by AJ Michalka (‘The Goldbergs’), appears bitter that Adora (Aimee Carrero, ‘Elena of Avalor’) has deserted The Evil Horde and joined the Great Rebellion. Using an energy weapon, Catra has the upper hand until reinforcements arrive in the form of Bow and Glimmer.
The clip depicts Adora’s new transformation sequence, which has a definite ‘Sailor Moon’ feel. From there, we see She-Ra, Adora’s super powerful alter ego as she confronts a pack of Horde troopers, which appear to be reptilian unlike the generic white stormtroopers from the original Filmation series. And speaking of that, The Horde on this series appears to have taken on a more realistic military green color scheme.
Glimmer is voiced by ‘The Boys” Karen Fukuhara, while ‘black-ish” Marcus Scribner voices Bow.
Netflix recently announced that ‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power’ would debut earlier than originally expected, on Tuesday, November 13 rather than the 16th.
The voice cast also includes Lauren Ash as Scorpia, Krystal Joy Brown as Netossa, Jordan Fisher as Seahawk, Keston John as Hordak, Merit Leighton as Frosta, Vella Lovell as Mermista, Sandra Oh as Castaspella, Genesis Rodriguez as Perfuma, Reshma Shetty as Angella, Lorraine Toussaint as Shadow Weaver, and Christine Woods as Entrapta.
Unlike the ’80s version, this take on ‘She-Ra’ is not a spin-off from ‘He-Man and the Masters of the Universe’. This version was spearheaded by cartoonist Noelle Stevenson.
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!
