Live-Action She-Ra Reboot From Dreamworks/Amazon Prime:

Quote:
A She-Ra live-action series is in early development at Amazon, Variety has learned exclusively.

As the project is in the very early stages, no writer is currently attached. DreamWorks Animation will serve as an executive producer after recently producing the Netflix animated series “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.” However, the live-action version will be a new, standalone story and will not be connected to the animated show.

Should the project go to series, it would mark the first live-action adaptation of the She-Ra character. She first debuted onscreen in the animated film ” He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword” in 1985 as part of the “Masters of the Universe” franchise before spinning off into her own cartoon series, “She-Ra: Princess of Power.”

In the original animated series, She-Ra’s real name is Princess Adora, the long lost twin sister of Prince Adam, a.k.a He-Man. She was kidnapped as a baby by Hordak of the Evil Horde and taken to the planet Etheria, where she was mind-controlled into serving as a Force Captain of the Horde. He-Man eventually helped her break the mind control and gave her the Sword of Protection, which allows her to transform into She-Ra and grants her incredible power. “She-Ra: Princess of Power” ran for two seasons and nearly 100 episodes between 1985 and 1986.

“She-Ra and the Princesses of Power” removed any connection of the character to He-Man, instead retconning Adora into an orphan who became a willing member of the Horde on Etheria. The show featured her as a teenager who breaks from the Horde after she discovers the Sword of Protection (again allowing her to transform into She-Ra) and takes up the cause of the Rebellion on Etheria. The show ran for five seasons and 52 episodes, with the fifth and final season dropping on Netflix back in May 2020.

I mean, "Wow, neat," but also, "This is madness, even He-Man never had a goddamn live-action show."

Not mad, exactly, just... a little bit disgruntled.

Of course, they might figure a She-Ra show might be cheaper to produce. Somehow I think that's part of it.

I'unno, we'll see what happens. And He-Man better get a live-action show, too, since that f*ckin' movie ain't ever getting made. God dammit.

I am more mad that He-man and She-Ra have different rights holders even though I have always seen them as the same franchise/series.

I doubt this will be good but I would like to wrong for once.

My guess is just "off white." Like white but mixed with... something. That she'll be made into a lesbian again should be enough to satisfy most weirdos.

At this point if she's not a lesbian she'll piss off the weirdos. They'll consider NuShe-Ra being gay a standard going forward for any future versions.

Kinda like any Batwoman going forward must be gay even if it's a different woman under the cowl.

Exactly. It would be "straight-washing" her at this point. You can only turn previously established characters into gay people, you can't turn gay people to straight (even if it's a new incarnation) or there'll be hell to pay. The only "progress" for them is going LGBTQ, not going straight... that would be "regressive." Anyway, there'd be lots of angry Twitter weirdos and we can't have that!

Nothing is more disgusting than WB/DC's treatment of Alan Scott, the first Green Lantern. He's this 90 year old guy with a wife, two kids who fought in WWII. When DC did the "New52" they decided to make the Earth-2 Alan Scott gay. Fine. But now years after all the Earth-2 stuff has been long cancelled, they bring back the real Alan Scott in the main DC Earth (which I was looking forward to) but now... oh no... suddenly in about 2019 it turns out he's been secretly gay the whole time, since the 40s. Who knew! And now he's gay in the Green Lantern TV show that's coming. And there's all these articles about, "WB is honoring the canon by featuring the first gay Green Lantern, Alan Scott!" He's nothing of the sort!

I mean, probably? But we don't actually know yet. All we know is that they're attempting a live-action pilot that might get picked up.

All the speculation and conjecture makes sense and it will probably go that way, given Current-Year Thinking, BUT, the fact is we can still only assume. We don't "know". We'll know when we know.

The only thing known is that they'll be taking their cues from OG She-Ra, completely ignoring the Netflix version. That's pissing the living hell out of the LGBT right now.

But IDK, I really don't see them having a modern show with a mostly white female cast. Either Netossa is suddenly gonna become a major character or we're gonna see Black Glimmer and Latina Castapella and the like.

I don't think that's "known", either. Scuttlebutt I've seen suggests they still might take a LOT from the Netflix She-Ra.

They literally only announced it yesterday. And? Decent odds are it'll never actually get made.

We'll know when we know.

I guess I am behind the curve. I didn't know they made She-ra a lesbian in the netflix series since I only watched a few episodes of the first season and never went back to it. Is it really the standard that she is supposed to be one now?

No, but once a character is made gay, the twitter weirdos want to make it that way. There are petitions being made to cancel the live action She Ra just because they're so afraid the new one will be straight.

New details on the He-Man show from this review:

-Ten episode season all dropping at once
-Keldor is 'awoken' by Adam summoning the power of Grayskull
-Or-Ko an android with the spirit of a jester.
-Eternia now goes by the name Eternos
-Teela is 'torn between her independence and relying on Adam to bestow her with power
-Krass is more an adopted sibling to Adam

They just can't leave Teela alone. She's stuck now with the 'independant whamin' stereotype forever now, isn't she?

Having now seen the episode in question which deals with this...it doesn't go the way you're thinking at all. Teela learns a lesson about relying on others and agrees to let Adam share his power with her.
