Noelle Stevenson has been a name to watch in the comic world for the past couple of years. The creator of such amazing projects like Nimona and The Lumberjanes, she has won fans the world over with her funny, heartfelt, and action-fueled stories.
Now she’s taking those storytelling chops to streaming by leading the charge of the rebooted She-Ra on Netflix. Talking with Entertainment Weekly, Stevenson shared her vision for the series, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
As for why She-Ra, it’s because the show had all the things she loved.
“I was really interested in finding what my next project would be, and finding something epic, serialized, action-adventure, fantasy, sci-fi…all of the things I wanted to do. [She-Ra] has this majority female cast, it’s centered around a female hero, it’s got rainbows and it’s got robots, it’s got everything I like in one place.”
As for what specifically she plans to bring to the story, Stevenson was drawn to the specific journey Adora (Aimee Carrero) had to take from being kidnapped as a baby by the Evil Horde to finding her family later in life.
“She’s separated from her family as a baby, she’s sent to another planet, she’s adopted by the villain overlord and raised by him in this evil army. She’s been raised to believe that the villains are doing the right thing and that the Princesses are the evil ones. And so we follow her as she has this crisis of faith; she’s been very sheltered her whole life and as she starts to experience the world, she realizes that there’s more to this than she knew, that maybe there’s a reason they were called the Evil Horde that maybe they were evil.”
The show itself looks stunning which you can see down below.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power hits Netflix on November 16th.
