It doesn’t take much to piss geeks off, but changing up beloved heroes is a sure way to get them fired up. Such is the case with Netflix’s new She-Ra and the Princesses of Power reboot, which has gotten quite a drastic change from the ’80s animation fans we used to. Of course, there are those who love the new set of screenshots and those who downright hate it. Twitter lit up with comments from all sides.
Netflix’s describes the show as “a magic sword [that] transforms an orphan girl into warrior She-Ra, who unites a rebellion to fight against evil.”
The promo images showcase a variety of characters from Noelle Stevenson’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, including Adora/She-Ra, Glimmer, Bow and Catra. There’s also an image of Bright Moon, the capital of Etheria and the home base of the rebellion.

1: Not She-Ra.
2: Actual She-Ra.
3: Also acceptable.

Boyish lesbian re-imagines SHE-RA as a boyish lesbian.
The utter selfishness and egotism of this is astounding. pic.twitter.com/PXIcoNkpaF

Those who are defending the show
Dear men complaining about She-Ra,
The animation industry has heard your complaints and we’re taking them into consideration. We promise the Care Bears reboot will have tons of boobs. You’re welcome.
