    Stevenson honors the basic plot layout and the birthday-cake radiance of old-school She-Ra. But the original cast of characters has been casually diversified, and newly illustrated to boldly suggest human beings have all shapes and sizes.

    In rebooting the beloved series, Stevenson has created something special, a cartoon that both honors and improves on the original by amplifying its characters’ feelings, and emits equal parts electricity, joy, and warmth. Like its titular hero, She-Ra is so full of heart that it’s easy to recognize its humanity, even with all the super-powered hijinks going on.

Animation can be off at times, but feel more of an homage to the original series than a flaw, while voice acting is on point for the entire cast. Expand

    A great show with great characters. Please ignore the 40yo dudes that hates this shows without watching it just because they hate women.

    One of the best cartoons of the year. The writing is clever, unpredictable, and isn't out of place. The story isn't bland and stays strongOne of the best cartoons of the year. The writing is clever, unpredictable, and isn't out of place. The story isn't bland and stays strong throughout the season, which does not fall flat because everything has a purpose. And the story with their """forced""" politics still manages to trigger the right. The characters have to be the best part of the show. They all have unique personalities, really good and convincing chemistry between each other. Over all and amazing show definatably worth a watch. Expand

    There are strengths and weaknesses to the new She-ra. The strengths are the portrayal of female characters in a modern era. The weakness isThere are strengths and weaknesses to the new She-ra. The strengths are the portrayal of female characters in a modern era. The weakness is the animation and character design. Now I'm not saying the characters need to be portrayed as ultra feminine or sexy, its a kid show, but practical things like She-ra's helmet is now a dumb looking tiara, and rather than giving her a skort, why not battle armour. Also Glimmer and Bow look straight out of Steven Universe, why not a more original design? The animation also is a bit lack-luster. I don't mind the characters one bit, its a cute show, it probably just won't be as memorable as its predecessor. Expand
