Since the premiere of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, He-man She quickly became an exemplary figure for children, but the brand also needed to reach girls who wanted to interact and identify with a female protagonist. This is how the character of She-Ra, twin sister of the protagonist, who began to become independent until having her own series in 1985. With the reboot of Netflix, developed by Noelle stevenson, much was said about the influence of this warrior. The reboot featured a very clean animation but with a less flashy female lead than the original, one who perceived herself more as a teenage girl in transition than a woman in revealing clothing.
Of course, this caused quite a scandal, with many fans saying that the crystal generation and the politically correct had massacred the character. While others supported the new version that was just presented for a new generation that has different conflicts and interests. To continue with the criticism, the story touches on very clear lesbian themes, and that was taken as a frontal attack and direct to the more square and traditional public. The reboot of He-man Kevin Smith’s supposedly would be proof of how things should be done, since the animation was identical to the original series. However, after a few episodes the audience was upset again because a woman was leading the story.
Despite the hate She-Ra and the Princesses of Power was made of a very loyal group of fans who followed the episodes of the five seasons without hesitation. This animation ended in 2020 and now the one that takes priority is Masters of the Universe: Revelation, which will soon release its second part and another CGI remake, also from Netflix called He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, which will be released in September. To continue with the folly of presenting these characters to the public, over and over again without rest, now it is confirmed that we will have a live action version of She-Ra.
