A new report from Variety has revealed that a new live-action series with Masters of The Universe character She-Ra is in very early development at Amazon Studios with DreamWorks Animation producing the potential show.
Sadly, we’re not getting anything concerning potential creatives such as writers, directors or even who they’ll want to play She-Ra. It’ll be interesting how they’ll approach the character after Netflix’s recent animated series She-Ra & The Princesses of Power.
She-Ra & The Princesses of Power is set on the planet Etheria and follows the stories of Adora and Catra, orphans who were raised to be soldiers in the Horde. They are part of an evil army led by Hordak, a tyrannical despot who dreams of conquering the planet.
This would be the first time She-Ra was given a live-action adaptation, while He-Man has a feature film previously and a new one has stalled multiple times to the point it seems unlikely that will come together anytime soon.
It’ll be curious to see if She-Ra series happens before a He-Man movie goes into production.
She-Ra isn’t the only fantasy hybrid projects in the works with an animated ThunderCats film from Adam Wingard (Godzilla Vs. Kong) and Millennium Films is taking a crack at a brand new Red Sonja film with Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man & The Wasp, Residential Evil: Welcome To Raccoon City) playing the female warrior.
Amazon is also behind two high-profile fantasy series The Wheel of Time and Lord of The Rings, both have multiple season commitments. It’ll be interesting to see if Amazon’s version of She-Ra will skew as a mature incarnation or be developed for younger audiences.
