She doesn't need a hero. She is a hero.

On a planet called Etheria, two forces battle for control. The Horde, with its skillfully trained soldiers and advanced technology, has one goal: to conquer all of Etheria in the name of Hordak. The other force, the Rebellion, is made up of princesses and has been fighting to maintain harmony and freedom for all of Etheria's people.

Hidden among them all is a hero to be. Her destiny was written by the First Ones a thousand years ago. Now she is about to rise again.

Raves & reviews:

"She-Ra and the Princesses of Power lets kids know that they can be anything they can dream of being... A love of reading begins by recognizing yourself and your endless possibilities through a character in a book, so I hope kids will see themselves in She-Ra, Glimmer, and Bow, and be inspired to find their own superpower within." — Noelle Stevenson, Executive Producer, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power


Praise for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power on Netflix:

"The new Netflix series updates the '80s swordtech cartoon into a heroically right-now parable about empowered women teamworking against terror. The result is a funny-wonderful pop fantasy animated like disco fireworks, fun for kids of all genders and any parents looking for something happy to cry about." — Entertainment Weekly
