A #SheRa live-action series is in early development at Amazon
The #SheRa project is in the very early stages and there is no writer currently attached.
DreamWorks Animation will serve as an executive producer after recently producing the Netflix animated series #SheRaAndThePrincessesOfPower. However, the live-action version will be a new, standalone story and will not be connected to the animated show.
The project would mark the first #SheRa live-action adaptation after debuting onscreen in the 1985 animated film “He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword” as part of the “Masters of the Universe” franchise before spinning off into her own series.
In the original animated series, She-Ra’s real name is Princess Adora, the long-lost twin sister of 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.
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. “She-Ra: Princess of Power” ran for nearly 100 episodes between 1985 and 1986.
