I've had the She-Ra: Princess of Power theme song stuck in my head ever since I heard that Netflix is reviving the 1985 cartoon with Nimona author/illustrator Noelle Stevenson at the head. The list below has seven books for you to read if you just can't wait for Netflix's She-Ra reboot, so you'll have plenty of entertainment to tide you over until She-Ra and the Princesses of Power returns "to free Etheria from the evil forces of Hordak."
Premiering in 1985, the original She-Ra: Princess of Power told the story of Princess Adora of Eternia — the twin sister of Prince Adam, A.K.A. He-Man — who had been kidnapped by the series' primary antagonist, Hordak, and raised to be the Force Captain of his Evil Horde on the planet Etheria. Through the magic of her sword, the Sword of Protection, Adora discovers the truth about her identity and transforms herself and her horse, Spirit, into She-Ra and Swift Wind: a talking unicorn pegasus. Although She-Ra has family and birthright on Eternia, she remains in Etheria, where she takes up residence in the Crystal Castle and leads the Great Rebellion against the Horde.
The new She-Ra and the Princesses of Power will revive She-Ra's allies from the original series, including Bow, Castaspella, Frosta, Glimmer, Netossa, Perfuma, and Sea Hawk. Your favorite She-Ra villains will return as well, with Catra, Entrapta, Modulok, Scorpia, and Shadow Weaver all slated to appear, according to the Netflix reboot's IMDB page. Unfortunately for those of us who loved the Masters of the Universe's "annoying" sidekick characters, neither Kowl nor Loo-Kee are currently listed as part of the She-Ra and the Princesses of Power cast, but we'll have to wait until the series premieres this fall to be sure.
If you're like me, you're chomping at the bit to get your eyes on Netflix's She-Ra reboot, but not to worry. I've got nine awesome books She-Ra fans can read while they wait for the new series to come out:
