She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Teaser Trailer

After the success of live-action TV revivals like Fuller House, Gilmore Girls and Mystery Science Theater 3000, Netflix is now turning to animation to resurrect a classic cartoon that you may remember if you happen to be a child of the ’80s. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is a new take on She-Ra: Princess of Power, the female-oriented counterpart to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, which aired from 1985 to 1986. Produced by DreamWorks Animated Television and developed by Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes), the reboot has a new look and also gives Adora a team of princesses to help in her fight against Hordak, which seems to be getting a mixed response from fans. Go figure. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power debuts on Netflix on Nov. 16th; check out the first teaser after the jump and see what you think.

    I’m too old to know anything about She-Ra, so I wanna talk about Netflix.

    It used to be that the prime network stations, such as, CBS and NBC, would premiere made-for-TV movies. They would have all-star casts, i.e, has-beens or actors who had no other options, and usually drivel or major disaster-type flicks. You knew what you were getting and they usually provided a chuckle or two – if even unintended. I shore do miss those days…

    Anyhoo, I downloaded several Chrome extensions which allow you to power search the Netflix catalog, and I am sorely disappointed. There seems to be maybe twenty great films and all the rest are two and even one star burning trash heaps of apathy.

    I can barely get through ten minutes of a “movie” before realizing how bad it is and giving up. All the actor seem to be D-list (if that!) or newcomers who suck, suck, suck.

    So, does anyone have any tricks for navigating Netflix or can you recommend a reliable alternative?

    I was a huge fan of He-man and She-ra. I don’t know what to expect from this show, the designs don’t thrill me, but I’ll give it a shot when it premieres.

    I am not sure why so many of these reboots make the characters younger than they were originally.
    When I was a kid, I pretended to be an adult during roll playing, not a slightly older kid. So I don’t know why kids today wouldn’t do the same.
