Postby O.Supreme » Tue Jul 17, 2018 4:50 pm

This was announced a while ago, but we finally have our first look at the series.

Not exactly what I was hoping for, but I'll still reserve judgment until I actually see an episode. It arrives November 16th on netflix

Getting strong Don Bluth vibes from that image, with a bit of Sailor Moon.

The Sailor Moon influence is and will continue to be huge in comics and animation: it seems be a formative influence for every female cartoonist who came of age between the mid-'90s and now.

Well that's quite possibly the most optimistic opinion I've seen so far. After posting this I decided to do some digging...Yeesh...This is almost as bad as TLJ for MOTU fandom. I'm not saying I disagree with all of the sentiments, but like everything else, it seems to be getting pushed to the extreme.

I get that this show is being developed by Noelle Stevenson, and the reveals yesterday gave fans of traditional She-Ra much pause...however I'm still going to give the show a shot. If I feel there are any hidden messages, I'll just choose not to watch, and my daughter wont be either, simple as that. It's odd because a couple of years ago the "fan-ownership" side of me would probably have been just as furious, but then I guess when you've had as many of my childhood memories be ruined by modern takes, you kind of get calloused to it, and kind of expect it, and let it be. Gems like the new Voltron are few and far between.

If anything, I'm not going to take issue with the "boyish" look of She-Ra, really not fair to judge based on ONE single picture. If anything I'm going to take issue with the age. In the 80's filmation toons both He-Man and She-Ra suffered from "Clark Kent" syndrome. Their alter ego's looked the same, only with darker hair, and a deeper voice.

In the 2002 Animated series (the best IMHO) Adam's transformation was more akin to DC's Bily Batson/Captain Marvel. Upon transforming, Young Prince Adam would become a fully formed muscular adult, thus making him in no way similar to Prince Adam. Had the show gone on to have a 3rd season, Adora would have been introduced, and it stands to reason, her transformation would be similar. In the pictures from the article, Adora looks fine. To me however, the Issue is not so much She-Ra's "boyish" look, which remains to be seen, the issue I have is that she looks like a teenager. Se-Ra has always (in animation, comic book or toy form) been portrayed as a fully grown adult woman.

If the show had looked good like the original image posted here, I would be excited. However, nope, the show looks bad. It looks like it was done by a kid with an iPad. No details, characters look like they are 12 (I can totally see Hordak taking them seriously), Catra looks like Merle from Escaflowne, and Glimmer is anything but.

That is hilarious. Of course, if I posted that on a certain other message board, I'll get an infraction for offending the overly sensitive.

^Well, considering the fact that the showrunner's sexuality as well as some, let's say 'traditionalist' opinions on gender roles are a common target for some of the more unsavory types who have it out for this show, I think that this little joke is certainly on the cusp of becoming a far uglier joke.

It's... very almost bad taste?
