SHE-RA EPIC LIVE ACTION
TV SERIES AT AMAZON
Although there is currently an animated version, Amazon is planning to turn SHE-RA into a live action epic series. Dream Works will produce
the series from the He-Man universe. In the original 80's animated series, She-Ra’s real name is Princess Adora, the long lost twin sister of Prince Adam, or He-Man. She was kidnapped as a baby by Hordak of the Evil Horde and taken to the planet Etheria, where she was mind controlled into serving as a Force Captain of the Horde. He-Man eventually helped her break the mind control and gave her the Sword of Protection, which allows her to transform into She-Ra and grants her incredible power. The new live action series will not be connected with the current Netflix animated series.
