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.

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.

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

    terrible. nothing about the original was preserved.

    A friend convinced me to give it a try, and though it took a while to really get into it, I enjoyed it eventually. The characters are all unique and likeable (favourites are Bow, Entrapta and ever grumpy Mermista) and the story progresses at a good pace.

    This show is bad, really bad: 1. IMO they've should have not used name Adora. As they've used "you are one of the She-ra in succession", they've should distinct this Adora from the old one. 2. This show is filled to the brim by feminist propaganda: body posivity, overpowering women, women good, men bad (except for Bow, and the other guy used as comic relief). What if Adora will grow older and will be higher than She-ra - will she shrink? 3. Storyline is repeatable, to the time itself - around 9 min to the end there is a change, that leads to the happy ending (we need new princess, we go ask, she don't want to, we show them what she-ra can do, ok I'll join). 4. NO background on anything. In the last episode we got info that the powerstones are given to princesses. And where is She-ras power stone? Why she don't need to charge it? 5. It's not a rebellion if you are not rebelling against major force. Like is Star Wars Empire had 1 billion stars and the rebellion had few planets with few ships.

    Really entertaining. Great characters and plot.

    Superb remake of the 80's TV show that does a great job updating the original concept while staying true to show. The vocal cast is excellent, with Amanda Michalka stealing the show as Catra, Adora's former best friend and now enemy in the Horde. Behind the camera, Noelle Stevenson does an excellent job crafting the remake, which stays true to the original show (along with fun nods, such as the old costumes), while making it more complex. The Horde and Hordac, while still evil, are shown to have layers and motivations, along with not being completely bad people, while the rebels make their own mistakes. The animation is also top notch, balancing the action with a more cartoony style, making for one of the many reasons to keep a Netflix subscription.

    Loved the original. This one does not have the music, the same story, same charac ter format, looky?!?!?!? or facial hair(bow). The new he man was not much better. It could have been something great :(

    I thought the first season was fine but the OVERT LGBTQ agenda in the following seasons makes it a no go for children.
  • Aug 07, 2019
    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.
  • Aug 06, 2019
    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.
