I am probably not suitable for assessing this She-Ra trailer.

I mean, it’s not something that I would watch.

Then again, I didn’t watch the original, either.  Or He-Man.  It’s got a weird animation style and aesthetic that I’m not really tracking, but that may be because I’m old.  Anybody watch the old show? Is this new one an abomination?

    I watched both shows, but favored He-Man. She-Ra was clearly the girls version of the He-Man (not like it tried to hide it, really) minus an implied love interest for She-Ra. Ok as far as it went. Had the same “moral lesson” bit at the end of each episode its parent show. Neither show really did character arcs or deep story telling over eps.

    This footage in this new one, seems to follow the basics of the She-Ra origin story from the cross-over ep they used to launch original She-Ra show. Other than the kind of blah character designs and sub par animation, it seems alright? At least it might tell its story better?

    I was a He-Man collector as a kid. What originally drew me to the toys was the lack of an established story. The cartoon was a disappointment. She-Ra was, as Aruges points out, a girl’s version of He-Man. I watched it occasionally. The cartoons were extended commercial advertisements for the toys (He-Man was actually the first toy line to have its own cartoon) and as such, not very good at all. The animation was laughable, and I came up with far better stories on my own.

    From what I can see in the trailer, the new She-Ra is one cup nostalgia, two cups Social Justice Warrior propaganda, served up in a thick, syrupy stew of sub-par animation.

    I have 3 daughters under the age of 5. I don’t think they will let me not watch this.

    Honestly, I am okay with that.
