Your first look at the upcoming She-Ra series is finally here in the form of a brand-new poster and photo of the cast, which Netflix released Friday. Who is She-Ra, you might be asking yourself? She's a character from the mid-1980s who was created by Filmation as the female answer to He-Man. In fact, she was Princess Adora, the twin sister of Prince Adam/He-Man. When Adora wields the Sword of Protection, she turns into She-Ra

The upcoming show is being run by Noelle Stevenson (LumberjanesNimona) and has been described as "a modern take on the ‘80s girl power icon for a new generation of young fans,"
