So She-Ra is returning to out screens in November this year however an early look has sparked outrage with fans suggesting she's been turned into a young femi-boy or looks like Tom Holland :curious:

Old VS New


Negative Tweets


To me the reason for the backlash is that she's no longer this somewhat sexual hero many fans idealised. She's been redesigned for a younger audience, to inspire a new generation. A similar backlash occurred with Star Wars Forces of Destiny. Yet again aimed at a younger target audience.

Do you think they should have stuck with the old design but modernised it? Or is this youngified version acceptable?

I really love the fan art on Twitter, it's beautiful and reflects her new image. I was scrolling through it last night.

I can understand why there has been a bit of an outrage about it. I think there is a lot of nostalgia around She-Ra and people just don't feel connected to the new version in the same way because they haven't been on a journey with her yet.

I feel like they have taken years off She-Ra, her updated version is a young girl, 80s She-Ra could be late twenties and her voice suggests she has years on the 2018 version.

Kids of the 80s will remember She-Ra
