It seems like solely yesterday that we stated good bye to She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, Netflix and Dreamworks’ excellent animated reboot of the enduring heroine and her mates. And whereas Prince Adam is off on adventures classic and new on the streamer, Adora and Etheria are taking a leap into an entire new realm… and an entire different streamer.
Variety reviews that Amazon Studios has partnered with DreamWorks Animation to develop a brand new live-action She-Ra sequence for Prime Video. The brand new present, which is at present within the very earliest phases of growth and has no artistic crew or forged hooked up but, is not going to be a continuation of the story informed in both She-Ra’s basic Masters of the Universe spinoff within the ‘80s, or the rebooted story informed in She-Ra and the Princesses of Energy. As a substitute, it will likely be a wholly new imagining of the character, with no connections to both earlier sequence.
It’s a shocking transfer, not simply to see She-Ra make the leap into dwell motion (Amazon is definitely tying itself up in fantastical swords-and-sorcery adventures proper now, between its Lord of the Rings prequel sequence and the Wheel of Time adaptation). However Mattel’s large plans for the rest of the Masters of the Universe world proper now are tied up over at Netflix, She-Ra’s earlier dwelling for Princesses of Energy. There, you’ll discover the continued, Kevin-Smith-fronted continuation of the unique He-Man cartoon with the gritty Masters of the Universe: Revelations, in addition to an all-new spin aimed toward youthful audiences within the type of the 3DCG series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, set to debut on September 15. Extricating Adora from that circle to convey her not simply to a brand new platform, however a wholly new medium for the character, might be very fascinating certainly.
We’ll convey you extra on Amazon’s plans for She-Ra as and once we study them.
