Balance must be restored and the only one that can do it is Adora, aka She-Ra, the Princess of Power! You were going to say Anakin Skywalker, weren't you?

Dreamworks TV has released the first teaser trailer for Netflix's take on the classic '80s media franchise that revolved around He-Man's twin sister, although Prince Adam won't be in the upcoming show (at least for the time being). The trailer gives us a good look at the art style that recalls classic anime and the the animation conventions of the 1980s that mixed American and Japanese sensibilities (think Transformers and Thundercats). 

In the teaser, which you can watch below, Adora (The Last Witch Hunter's Aimee Carrero) is summoned by a mystical disembodied voice to take on great responsibility. "You do not yet realize the power you have," says the voice. "The time has come to show you your destiny."

Watch the teaser below:

Developed by Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes, Nimona), the show will follow Adora, an orphan that leaves her life with the evil Horde after finding a magical sword that transforms her into She-Ra. Uniting a group of other magical princesses, Adora will lead the fight against wickedness. 

In addition to Carrero, the cast also includes Karen Fukuhara (Suicide Squad) as Glimmer, AJ Michalka (The Goldbergs) as Catra, Marcus Scribner (black-ish) as Bow, Reshma Shetty (Royal Pains) as Angella, Lorraine Toussaint (Orange is the New Black) as Shadow Weaver, Keston John (The Good Place) as Hordak, Lauren Ash (Superstore) as Scorpia, Christine Woods (Hello Ladies) as Entrapta, Genesis Rodriguez (Time After Time) as Perfuma, Jordan Fisher (Grease Live!) as Seahawk, Vella Lovell (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Mermista, Merit Leighton (Alexa & Katie) as Frosta, Sandra Oh (Killing Eve) as Castaspella, and Krystal Joy Brown (Motown: The Musical) as Netossa.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power will premiere on Netflix Nov. 16.
