All Critics (24) | Top Critics (2)

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]

Mar 3, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Nov 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Likable '80s reboot features strong female heroine.

Nov 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It isn't the best animation, not quite as good as the latest Voltron but still solid. Any image issues I may have are insignificant with a show that has this kind of atmosphere. It is fun to watch.

Nov 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Its bright rainbowtastic visuals fit in with its sweet message of acceptance and standing up for what you believe in perfectly, while its excitable Pokemon-style pacing moves the plot along effectively.

Audience Reviews for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power: Season 1

  • Aug 22, 2020
    In my opinion, this is the weakest of the five seasons, and yet I give it 5 full stars. Why? Because it introduces the characters, and with Episode 5 begins to realize its potential for complex storytelling even though it'sa show aimed at young people. Brimming with subtext if you're looking for it, the series starts strong by introducing us to a diverse cast - all body types and ethnicities seem to find some representation, as does the LGBT+ community, right off the bat. Far from giving us angst-filled coming out stories, queerness simply is in this show, no big deal. And by having many queer characters, there's no problem of tokenism or the need for one character to represent the entire queer community. Yet, queerness isn't dwelt upon, not is it the point of any of the shows plot lines or characters' development. It simply exists, and all characters are at peace with whatever or whomever one wishes to love or to be. For these reasons and for the excellent red design of the characters, I give it five stars.

    This show is my favourite, the characters' development is the greatest I've ever seen and the story is something amazing. You never get bored. The story is well written and shown. Love it

    All of the princesses are unlikable with severe character flaws that detract from the series. The only exception being the main character and Entrapta. I find myself rooting for the villians as they're the only characters with any depth. That, and most of the princesses are so self-absorbed that it's a miracle they can get anything done. At least Catra is a decent character. She's about the only reason to watch this show.

    Best animated show I've ever seen. The plot is incredible, each character is very well built and I love that it has so much lgbt+ representation. I love it.
  • Aug 01, 2020
    It's not just the genuine representation - It's the quality of it all; characters, storytelling, visuals...
  • Jul 17, 2020
    THIS SHOW!!!! ❤️ Where to even start. So wonderful. So surprising and unexpectedly wonderful. If only there had been queer content like this when I was growing up. I keep rewatching the end of the show and it makes me ugly cry every time. Besides the fact that it gives us the representation and diversity that I am so thoroughly starved for. The best friend's squad gives me the Harry Potter golden trio vibe that I loved growing up with. Also, the art is beautiful and colourful. The characters have depth and the confessions of love felt real and directed towards a queer audience. I gives me Sailor Moon vibes. Best modern magical girl show. I could go on but I would never stop.

    This reboot is absolutely amazing! Definitely a show you want kids to watch. Wholesome, tackles some big issues in a very simple way and is genuinely hilarious and relatable!

    Sin tener mucha espectativa, es una serie que te engancha inmediatamente y te sorprende en una temporada final que es espectacular

    Started this show with my elementary aged daughter. I love the show as much as she does! The characters are great, the themes are important.
