DreamWorks reveals She-Ra and the Princesses of Power cast, teaser poster


Earlier in the year, DreamWorks announced that they were developing a new She-Ra animated series for Netflix due out in 2018. While remaining fairly tight-lipped, the animation studio has revealed new details on the upcoming Noelle Stevenson and Chuck Austen led series. Titled She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, here’s the official plot synopsis:

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is the story of an orphan named Adora (Carrero), who leaves behind her former life in the evil Horde when she discovers a magic sword that transforms her into the mythical warrior princess She-Ra. Along the way, she finds a new family in the Rebellion as she unites a group of magical princesses in the ultimate fight against evil.

The major focus of the news has been on the voice cast, which is as follows:

  • Aimee Carrero (Young & Hungry) as Adora / She-Ra
  • Jordan Fisher (Liv and Maddie) as Seahawk
  • Marcus Scribner (black-ish) as Bow
  • Lorraine Toussaint (Orange Is the New Black) as Shadow Weaver
  • Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) as Castaspella
  • Karen Fukuhara (Suicide Squad) as Glimmer
  • AJ Michalka (The Goldbergs) as Catra
  • Reshma Shetty (Royal Pains) as Angella
  • Keston John (The Good Place) as Hordak
  • Lauren Ash (Superstore) as Scorpia
  • Christine Woods (Hello Ladies) as Entrapta
  • Genesis Rodriguez (Time After Time) as Perfuma
  • Vella Lovell (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Mermista
  • Merit Leighton (Katie and Alexa) as Frosta
  • Krystal Joy Brown (Motown: The Musical) as Netossa

DreamWorks has also shared a teaser poster (as well as an animated version), hinting at what fans could expect Adora to look like as She-Ra:

Netflix has already launched their landing page for the show, though a release window for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power hasn’t been revealed.

Twin sister of He-Man star Prince Adam, Adora first starred in her own Masters of the Universe spin-off series produced by Filmation and Mattel between 1985 and 1986. While not as much of a success compared to her brother’s show, She-Ra: Princess of Power left a lasting impact on viewers as one of the few American produced female-led action cartoons of the era.
