Raise that sword!
A new trailer for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power dropped at New York Comic Con on Thursday, and it lives up to the title, with a heavy dose of rebellious royalty in the upcoming Netflix series.
"This is what I have been working for my entire life. I wonder what's even outside the Fright Zone," young Princess Adora says as she trains to battle a rebellion opposing the Evil Horde.
It doesn't take long for Adora to realize that she's on the wrong side of history. “She’s so imperfect... I find it to be a story of redemption," series star Aimee Carrero said during the panel for the reboot. (Fun fact: This isn't Carrero's first time playing an animated princess. She's also the star of Disney Junior's Elena of Avalor.)
"All I did was pick up the sword and then whoosh, I'm in a tiara," Adora says as she is transformed into a superpowered warrior. Once she learns the truth about the Horde's intentions she is quickly ready to turn her back on them and help the rebellion, earning the title She-Ra, Princess of Power. Along the way she helps rebuild the Princess Alliance to battle the Horde.
The original She-Ra: Princess of Power cartoon debuted in the 1980s as part of the Masters of the Universe franchise, often fighting alongside He-Man. This new version is heavily influenced by Dungeons & Dragons, a personal passion of showrunner Noelle Stevenson.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power premieres Nov. 16 on Netflix. A new poster for the series was also unveiled at NYCC.
