Lumberjanes’ Noelle Stevenson is Rebooting She-Ra for Netflix

Today Noelle Stevenson, the Eisner Award-winning cartoonist behind the fantasy graphic novel Nimona and the delightful comic book series Lumberjanes, announced the raddest of news: She’ll be showrunning Netflix’s reboot of beloved ’80s animated series She-Ra. It’s one of six new animated series from Netflix and Dreamworks Television including the new season of Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters and 3 Below, the second installment of the Tales of Arcadia Trilogy.

We’re most excited about the return of the Princess of Power, whose series was originally created as a spinoff of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, but who stands alone in this new series.

Stevenson shared the news on Twitter:

Here’s the official synopsis, from Netflix:

From Eisner Award-winning author and executive producer Noelle Stevenson comes a modern take on the ‘80s girl power icon for a new generation of young fans. The trailblazing property originally debuted in 1985 to satisfy demand for a female-led fantasy series. The series is described as an epic and timely tale that celebrates female friendship and empowerment, led by a warrior princess tailor made for today. The series will be available to Netflix members worldwide in 2018.

All we have to say is: Swiftwind or GTFO.

Look for all the new series to premiere over the course of 2018.
