Netflix Reveals Teaser Trailer for ‘She-Ra and the Princesses of Power!’

Netflix has dropped the first teaser trailer for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power on Teen Vogue, and we’re thrilled that the new show looks fabulous. The animated series from DreamWorks Animation Television and Netflix revisits the story of the warrior princess Adora, who first appeared as part of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe in 1985.

The show reboots the origins of Adora as a young orphan raised by the Horde; she doesn’t know her parents, but when she is drawn to a magic sword she is transformed into SHE-RA, the Princess of Power! She discovers that the Horde is an evil army determined to conquer her world. She must leave her surrogate family behind to join the Rebellion and fight for freedom.

While the original iteration of the character was primarily intended to sell toys, the new show expands on Adora’s journey for a new generation of viewers. The character design attracted unnecessary furor in some quarters from legacy fans displeased by Adora’s new appearance, age, and outfit—let’s just say it’s less revealing than the original. (Ugh. “Fans.”) Seriously, we’re happy that the character is aimed at younger viewers! This is a kid’s show focused on a young woman’s journey.

Check out the trailer below!

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power arrives on Netflix on November 16.
