It's kind of crazy how reactionary some of y'all are.

I just want to make sure the art style is less adventure time and maybe more Steven universe of voltron (old and new).

I wonder how toy-accurate the designs will be (the filmation series did take some liberties with certain character designs, ie, Hordak having blue skin and an arm cannon).

Less about stuffing down morals about gender, more about skipping right past them so we can focus on the adventure.

Ah. Well color me intrigued.

Magic School Bus reboot/Carmen Sandiego reboot

I forgot about the first one, didn't know about the second.

People ought to be thrilled that the same mind behind Nimona and Lumberjanes (one of them anyway) is behind this series.

I don't know what the first thing is and I've only recently heard of the latter.

[up] Oh yeah... this was made in that time period where cartoons were mostly around to promote toylines, weren't they? Are cartoons still doing that? The last one I saw with a significant toyline was Sonic Boom.

@ 19 Soble, I think the big difference between He-Man and She-Ra is the position they find themselves in.

He-Man lives on Eternia, a planet ruled by his father and is a defender of the realm, protecting Enternia from being conquered by Skeletor.

She-Ra lives on Etheria, a planet ruled by the tyrannical Horde and its evil leader Hordak. She-Ra is a rebel trying to bring freedom to an oppressed people, so they both play different roles in their respective worlds.

I am curious what they would do with Hordak and the Horde. 80s Hordak was hampered by 80s censorship, with the Horde using stun rays to subdue rebels and simply return them to their enslaved positions. I wonder if Hordak will be more ruthless and lethal in this version, a true despot. I can't image a sympathetic version of Hordak, I am not sure that would fit the character.

Jan 8th 2018 at 9:34:51 PM

[up]Hordak was re-imagined in the 2002 He-Man as a being that scared the crap out of Skeletor and kills any minion that displeases him. I would rather they went that direction. Then again Id rather they just did He-Man like 2002, but what do I know?

[up] 2002 was a while ago and that reboot did not quite succeed. I don't think Netflix thinks kids will be interested in a continuation of a series that ended 15 years ago.

Though I am hoping for a really cruel, menacing and evil Hordak.

I kind of want Hordak to actually end up bonding with Adora in a Lima Syndrome way while still being a legitimately dangerous Evil Overlord.

[up] They don't really need to invoke Lima Syndrome to do that. One thing the original series didn't really delve into all that much was that for most of her life, Hordak and Shadow Weaver were the closest things to parents that Adora had. They're hardly going to win any "Adoptive Parents of the Year" award, what with raising her as a Tyke-Bomb and magical brainwashing to remove any pangs of conscience but they've known her for a long time, and she them.

Actually depending on how they're going to do the reboot, I'd like to see more exploration of the fact that Adora is a former Horde Force Captain and while she might have defected to the Rebellion, she still has a history and (former?) friends on the Horde side. The original touched lightly on it in one episode of the original but it's a rich vein of drama to mine. You could get even more drama out of it if you contrast Adora's reputation vs She-Ra's.

If one wants to go that angle, there could be drama milked from the fact that Adora can't see the Evil Horde as just The Horde due to being raised among them and actually befriending some of them. Which doesn't detract from the fact that they are still a hostile invasion force hellbent on conquering her true home and family.

Hordak meanwhile, will actually be a tad conflicted, not knowing whether he wants to destroy Adora or somehow convince her to come back to him willingly. While also making sure the rest of the Horde doesn't find out that he's emotionally compromised to prevent any uppity would-be Starscreams from getting any ideas.

Between this, Steven Universe, Star vs The Forces of Evil and arguably Miraculous Ladybug, could it be that we're in the midst of a Western Magical Girl genre revival?

While She-Ra was indeed connected to He-Man, the two were separate enough that there's really no necessity for that connection to be there. It wouldn't take much re-writing at all for She-Ra to be completely it's own thing.

Hope they bring back Sea Hawk.

[up] True. But than again:

By the honour of Grayskull! I AM SHE-RA!!!

Gonna take some good re writes to gloss over that transformation oath, cause chances are people would think of He-Man immediately after hearing that.

I was wondering, will she ra get a redo or will she remade the same? Like, In terms of design.

They'll give her a redesign so she appeals to the audience

[up]So a lot simpler in design I suppose? Filmation would always go for detailed character models and use the same three frames ad nauseum.

They got a fairly well known cartoonist to develop this, so I would expect a fair bit of her personal style to be in the design.
