Growing up in the early to mid 1980s one thing was for sure, the cartoons were epic! Nothing was better than coming home from school right in time to watch the 2-hour block of cartoons: She-Ra, He-Man, Thundercats, and Voltron. Now just as I grew up with those classic shows, my kids get to grow with the latest incarnations thanks to Netflix. Last week on November 13th, season one of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power hit the streaming service. Each of the 13 episodes is 24 minutes long, mirroring a typical weekday afternoon cartoon minus commercials.
Developed by Noelle Stevenson and produced by Dreamworks Animated Television, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power stars the voice talents of Aimee Carrero (Elena of Avalor), Karen Fukuhara (Suicide Squad), and many more. The story details have changed, with Adora (Carrero) working for the evil Hordak against the Princesses only to encounter the magical sword of protection and become She-Ra the Princess of Power.
My daughter watched the first episode and was immediately hooked. It helped that she loved her new She-Ra t-shirt and oversized trading card set that I got courtesy of Netflix. Check out the photos below… we may have next year’s Halloween costume planned out.
