The first teaser for Netflix’s She-Ra shows off Adora’s transformation

‘For the honor of Grayskull!’

Petrana Radulovic is an entertainment reporter specializing in animation, fandom culture, theme parks, Disney, and young adult fantasy franchises.

The first teaser for Netflix’s upcoming She-Ra reboot shows orphan Adora, our main character, transforming into the heroic lead for the very first time.

Helmed by Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes), the reboot is titled She-Ra and the Princesses of Power and will focus on Adora as she unites a rebellion against evil. Joining Adora are fellow She-Ra characters Glimmer, Bow and Catra, all reimagined for this new series. Previously, images and character designs for Princesses of Power caused a ripple in the animation community, as fans of the new designs defended the reboot from those who were more stuck in the past.

While the teaser just gives us a small glimpse of the new series, it features a mysterious voice beckoning Adora to a sword wrapped in tree roots in the middle of a dark forest — before the iconic She-Ra transformation. And of course, no She-Ra transformation would be complete without She-Ra lifting her sword into the air and yelling, “For the honor of Grayskull!”

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power will stream exclusively on Netflix starting Nov. 16.
