The new She-Ra series will open with the young Adora as an orphan, raised by Hordak’s evil Horde after losing her family, leading her to believe that the princess heroes of the Rebellion are actually the bad guys. But, shocking twist!

She-Ra and the Princess of Power hits Netflix November 16. Here’s the full poster debuted at the con:

If only the animation wasn’t piss poor.

I was one of the many 80s boys who grew up a die-hard He-Man fan, but thought the She-Ra series/premise/character was better all around. I would have LOVED this to look as legit as Netflix made Voltron look with that reboot. DC did a run of comics a few years ago that really did Adora’s journey right (I teared-up when she finally became She-Ra).

This looks so cheap by comparison - really a disservice to the character and the world.
