The new 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' is called to delight a whole new generation of young viewers with a good story, great intentions but with a failed animation that I hope can be solved. [Full Review in Spanish]

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is one of TV's best action cartoons.

Jan 29, 2019 | Full Review…

The setup is simple enough, but the show's rainbow visuals, delightful cast, and crackling sense of humor are anything but.

Jan 8, 2019 | Full Review…

If Stevenson and her crew avoid further lazy fetch-quest plots and keep to the emotional core they build here, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power has the potential to become a new fantasy classic.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power gives children the representation many of us did not have growing up, and honestly, it's about time.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Netflix's reboot is warm and cheerful while not dismissing anyone's emotions, especially those that younger viewers can relate to. As much as it is about adventure and superpowers, it's also about kindness and empathy.

Nov 28, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

This culmination of deep world building, beautiful artistry, and vocal performances makes She-Ra and the Princesses of Power a remarkable cartoon.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Sure, other shows may have explored some of the ideas She-Ra touches on better, but the series still manages to be remarkably inclusive, not just in terms of casting, but with regards to the themes it explores.

Nov 27, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

New She-Ra is great. It has compelling characters, exciting story arcs and solid laughs. It picks up the original's power sword but is clearly cutting its own trail. It's strong, inclusive and entertaining.

Likable '80s reboot features strong female heroine.

    I thought the first season was fine but the OVERT LGBTQ agenda in the following seasons makes it a no go for children.

    If I had to be real, this show is better then the 80s cartoon, this show actually has more creativity put into it. The characters are rich and better designed and are not limited to take from the design of the toy.

    Fantastic story line and character dynamic. Animation left a little to be desired but it's obvious that those who worked on the show were talented as hell and passionate and it shows! I got used to the style and it's a great watch

    I am someone coming into this blind. I got really confused and thought i was watching a sequel but learnt it was a reboot. This series fails to establish itself as a reboot and comes off as more of a sequel and its confusing for beginners. The villains are better developed than the heroes cause most of the season is spent with the heroes recruiting people and less about developing She-Ra and who she really is. I also think the princesses are all one note and it feels like some of them change their personalities on a dime like Frosta. I also think some of the character names should have been left in the 80's cause their names are so cringy and just forgettable. Literally the villains are the saving grace because their character development is so much better than the heroes. Overall its very meh not great but not terrible its very so-so.

    If I were to sum up my thoughts on Season 1 of She-Ra in one phrase, it would be "untapped potential." There are so many things that could make this show truly great if they were fully utilized, from the intriguing lore to the war setting to the vast cast of annoying and/or basic characters. Seriously, if they made Adora interesting and complex, if they made Glimmer grow up, if they actually made it a war story instead of a weird high school story with "Princess Proms," then this show could become truly fantastic. It's already got a head start on being the best series in the He-Man universe, and if they just don't mess it up, and keep improving, then this could become something truly fantastic. However, that's what it COULD be, not what it currently IS. And what it currently is just isn't all that amazing. It's not bad. Far from it. It's a fairly decent show. The animation is good to great, the music by Sunna Wehrmeijer is PHENOMENAL, and the voice-acting from most of the cast is good and AMAZING from Lorraine Toussaint and Keston John. Seriously, those two deserve AWARDS for their performance here. However, at least as far as the first Season goes, it is very limited in many regards, and a little annoying in a few others. And those downsides do pull down its score. As such, with all the upsides and downsides considered, the score I would give Season 1 of She-Ra is: 4.75/10 Of course that's with my personal rating system from -10 to +10. If we were to translate that into the standard 0 to 10 rating system, it would get a 7.4/10, which is equivalent to a 3.7/5. So She-Ra Season 1 gets 3.7 Stars from me.

    Great show. Fun, engaging characters, cute plots, and it deals with trauma/PTSD in an interesting, realistic way. Body-positive, has representation of people from all races/creeds/sexual orientations, and treats women like they are ::gasp:: actual humans. A bright spot in our ever-darkening world.
