The Princess Alliance is fully formed and ready to take on a tougher, nastier Horde led by Hordak and Catra. War has come to Etheria, and it looks fabulous. And sparkly.


Premiering today at Wonder Con, the new trailer for She-Ra’s second season showcases our heroes, led by Adora and the rest of the Princess Alliance, taking on the malevolent forces of the Horde for control of the planet of Etheria. Along the way, Adora struggles with mastering her powers as She-Ra and Catra delights in her new role as Hordak’s right hand. (At least, until Hordak gets mad.)

The new season premieres April 26th, and it’s looking stunning, full of action, mayhem and good humor. The one thing this trailer is missing is Catra saying “Hey, Adora” a few times. But I guess that’ll have to wait for the show to premiere.

Looking forward to it!

I really do hope that they stop with the Plausible Deniability LGBTQ stuff, though. Adora and Catra’s relationship is so heavy on the subtext it’s about as subtle as a megaphone, and I love it, but don’t be afraid to actually talk about it!

Because what I don’t want is for this show to do nothing but going “Adora and Catra are... you know, they... really cared for each other, you know, like... some sorts would, it’s like that... you know, that thing, I mean, I don’t really need to spell it out or anything, we’re all on the same page, right?”

Stop pussyfooting (...sorry...) around and you’ll be able to actually dive into those topics more, instead of being all wink-wink-nudge-nudge whenever you get close to it.
