She-Ra: Princess of Power is an animated television series created by Filmation, based on the Mattel toy line Masters of the Universe. It ran for two seasons from 1985 to 1986.
The series follows the adventures of He-Man's twin sister, She-Ra, and her adventures in saving Etheria from the evil forces of Hordak, Skeletor's former mentor.
Why it Rocks
- It's a perfect story with action moments.
- Great voice acting.
- Memorable villains that look evil and awesome, such as Hordak.
- Great music choices, especially the opening and ending themes.
- Amazing characters.
- Adora's transformation into She-Ra looks impressive.
- Good morals.
- It's a spinoff of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.
- The animation looks weaker, especially by modern standards. This is because Filmation often prioritized quantity over quality, resulting in their cartoons looking cheap.
- In Season 2, Hordak and his henchmen they assume more and more parodic and comedic behaviors.
- The He-Man & She-Ra Christmas special was not well received.
- She-Ra was not only popular in the United States of America, but it was also popular in Europe (especially in Italy), too.
- It earned a reboot by Netflix and Dreamworks called She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
