She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Netflix – Review

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power updates a classic 80’s series, while renewing audiences and satisfying nostalgia (watch here). Netflix rarely cloud hit this many audiences at the same time. There are those who still remember She-Ra’s cartoon with affection, which ran five days a week in its first season and on Saturday mornings in its second. It was a spin-off of “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe”, another resounding success, but that was aimed at the male audience. She-Ra came to be the girls’ heroine – and to make lots of money with licensed products.

However, with the flood of new animations that emerged in the 1990s, She-Ra has been in the background until being relatively forgotten. In addition, many said that their themes were out of fashion, in addition to the animation not having as much quality as those that began to emerge with the advent of “Toy Story” or even “The Lion King”, which raised the cartoons’ level greatly. However, in the middle of 2018 and with the new tendency to rescue icons from the past, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power arrives with the mission to reinvigorate this legendary character who captivated many people in the past. Fortunately, the mission is well accomplished.


One of the themes covered in this first season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is empowerment, both feminine and LGBT. The soldier Adora, who ends up finding the sword that gives her a chance to become She-Ra, is a common character, who would normally be relegated to the role society would give her: without any importance or relevance, she would be doomed to always stand behind men soldiers. The encounter of the sword and the revelation of her alter-ego causes an attitude transformation, even outside the new persona. We follow Adora’s trajectory, who realizes that she doesn’t need magical powers to be respected as a woman in a downright sexist society.

In addition, there is a clear LGBT bias in the story of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. This was reinforced by its producer, Noelle Stevenson. In several interviews she stated that she would not hide these themes, despite being a production aimed at today’s children. And, in this aspect, the production hits the mark. There is no pamphleteering of these themes, shoving them as if it were a series whose main theme is militancy. The treatment is completely natural, without appeals and exaggerations, as is done in another great public and critical success hit, “Steven Universe.” In this way, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is an engaging animation that doesn’t put the fun aside.

Relevant update

She-Ra faces several enemies in its episodes, which have great emotional catharsis. In addition, she must also face a moral dilemma, as her best friend ends up going to the evil side. Evidently, this brings her headaches, while the heroine needs to find a way to bring her friend back to the good side. Of course, this storyline enchants children – on the other hand, it also sensitizes adults.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is a competent and charismatic animation that has a great impact on those who watch. The traits hardly resemble the ’80s project – they are softer and subtler. In compensation, the script excels in honoring it, and just as it doesn’t lose the essence of the well-known character, it also makes a permanent update, bringing it to the present day.
