She-Ra Princess Of Power Review: A Modern LGBTQ Classic

I remember the original She-Ra from my childhood. It was corny, funny, plus it had one of my favorite heroines ever. It is outdated by today’s standards, but the original She-Ra still has a place in my heart. When I heard a new version was in the works, I was skeptical. I didn’t want them to ruin one of my favorite cartoons from my childhood. I’m happy to say they get it.

Animation

The art style is stunning. Gorgeous colors, big eyes and expressions bring the characters and world to life. The colors are bright, but they can be darker to give a sinister look to the villains. There are some scary monsters in the show, so I don’t think I would let a really small child watch this.

Characters

One of the brightest spots of this show is the characters. Fan favorites like Catra, She-Ra, Bow, and Glimmer lead the charge with Hordak and other members of the evil horde making appearances. The characters have a surprising amount of depth to them. The show is not black or white on morality either.

Writing

The writing is sharp, clean and witty. Each character is vividly bought to life with distinct personality traits, and a clear sense of morality. The stories are fresh avoiding cliches that bring down too many shows aimed at younger people. She-Ra shows that shows aimed at younger people don’t have to insult their intelligence.

Flaws

Some of the dialogue can be corny. The first episode takes a little long to get going, and some of the twists are a predictable. This doesn’t sink the show, not by a mile.

Final Verdict

If you’re looking for a show aimed at LGBTQ yough that’s funny, action packed and intelligent, look no further than She-Ra and the Princess of Power. The pace moves fast, the jokes are funny, emotional moments and complex morality make She-Ra a top-notch show for the whole family. She-Ra is available for streaming on Netflix.

Grade: A-96
