    Netflix She-Ra trailer.

    I do actually give them a lot of credit because it looks like they actually put some real effort into it, unlike the cringe worthy Thundercats Roar.

    The backgrounds are lovely but I Just don't like the character designs. Bow, Catra and Glimmer are unrecognizable and I think it was a bit much that they gave Adora the same side shaved hairstyle as the show runner. It looks more like Korra mixed with Steven Universe than She-Ra to me.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I guess the real test of this is if it finds a new audience.

    Recently, I paid $50 so my 13 year old daughter could get a photo op with one of the stars of "Voltron". All the girls in her class love the show, it blows my mind!

    Ick. Her voice is already on my nerves. Like bad.

    I wish the series well. As Palitoy said, the real test if it finds a new audience. I'll probably give it a chance just to see what it's like.
    But yeah, for me I think this is one of those cases where I can still love the old thing but let the new thing go off and do its own thing...

    For long time fans, like me, the new She-Ra cartoon is a lose-lose situation. She-Ra isn't like Transformers or TMNT with one reboot after another. If it bombs people will just say no one likes She-Ra anymore. If it does well people will say the original sucked and the new version replaces the original.

    That's why people should really treasure the Ducktales reboot. Rarely is an 80s toon updated so faithfully and respectfully. All the characters look like they are supposed to. They didn't try to reinvent the wheel by making Scrooge hip, trendy and unrecognizable.

    ^ This is pretty much what happened with Jem. Hasbro didn't invest in the movie, it was not a hit, and now the brand is likely dead again.

    Yep, that horrid movie killed Jem. The property is now sadly dead.

    Welp....

    My girls will give it a shot. The anime look will appeal to the older. My younger loved the Barbie aspect that this baltantly avoids. And she's the yuge She-Ra fan.

    I'm guessing Mattel thinks Netflix has a hit on their hands and their po'd MOTU is nowhere on development.

    I'll say two seasons.

    Well, i don't doubt the first scenario but the second one seems a little pessimistic. I mean sure, some would say that because, this is the internet but i can't imagine that being the concensus if it was a hit.

    I also say this as a person who knows little about She-Ra fandom at all. It came out when I was 15, so my knowledge is limited on the subject. I know it gets that weird bad rap for killing He-Man (which i think is silly) but it has a large following yes?

    I've been shocked by the number of 35+ women I've met who clearly watched the show as a kid.

    Well, I actually liked the Jem movie. But there were many fans who understandably did not.

    But my point was that Hasbro, who holds the license, didn't really make any effort to revive Jem or make the movie a success.
    And now that it's seen as a huge failure, Hasbro can say "Jem isn't worth reviving."

    If She-Ra doesn't catch on with new fans and the original fans turn their backs on it, Mattel could do the same.
