She-Ra and the Princesses of Power

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is a 2018 reboot of the 1980's TV animated series She-Ra, Princess of Power. The latest series is made by Dreamworks and created by Noelle Stevenson. This particular new adaption is a different type of series altogether. Not tied with He-Man, who is the brother of She-Ra in the original 80's series. There are many changes done to this. I grew up watching both He-Man and She-Ra in the eighties, so I came across many criticisms of the 2018 reboot made by a lot of Youtubers and written comments on other websites.
I've watched the entire first series of the 2018 Dreamworks She-Ra and must say that I absolutely love it. The series and storylines are powerful and not by formula. The animation itself in She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is beautiful and like art nouveau has come alive. The style of the characters are anime, and yet every single character including the extras all have their own individual looks and personalities.
A girl named Adora  becomes She-Ra when she discovers a magical sword that was destined for her. That sword changed her life forever. Raised in a dreary castle of The Horde, trained as a soldier to fight "bad princesses", she discovered that the Horde are actually the ones doing evil in the world. She becomes friends with people in Etheria and soon discovers that one of her new friends, Glimmer, is a princess. Meanwhile, her old friends from The Horde are not interested in saving the world and they don't care about the lives of innocent people. That also meant her best childhood friend Catra turned into her most worst enemy.
I rate this 10/10
Bonus surprise: Swiftwind!
Howls ^^
