The new season of She-Ra and The Princesses of Power has arrived on Netflix. Much like another Netflix original series, Voltron: Legendary Defender, the series now arrives with shorter seasons so fans don’t have to wait as long between releases. Does the new season still manage to pack enough in enough content with fewer episodes? You better believe it does.

Summary

After the Battle of Bright Moon, She-Ra struggles to master her powers and fight against the legacy of those who came before her. At the same time, Catra works to maintain her power as an unexpected rival soon rises to take her place.

She-Ra

Writing

The second season shows a lot of growth and maturity in the cast. Adora struggles with being a better She-Ra than Mara, her predecessor who went rouge, Glimmer deals with being a leader, and Bow deals with his family’s expectations for him. All of these issues are addresses and it helps to add more depth to characters who were already established in the previous season. The showrunners made sure not to waste a single episode with unnecessary filler.

These episodes also help to address a complaint from the previous season. Hordak, the main villain was seen more behind the scenes and his villainy was by reputation than by deeds. Though its a brief moment, Hordak and his malice are on full display to remind the audience why he is the number one villain. Also, he makes sure to drop some hints of additional world building and the possibility of much more coming around the corner for the series.

Animation

The series keeps the same high quality of animation as before. Moments worth mentioning include the episode “Roll With It” where the cast have a strategy session which quickly evolves into them basically playing Dungeons and Dragons. The episode makes use of different animation styles and character designs to tell a very humorous story. Also, the cast members are show with the designs from the original She-Ra: Princess of Power series (pictured above).

Conclusion

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power continues to be an entertaining series with a lot of heart behind it. Though the season is short, there are plenty of great moments which delight fans. The only downfall is the wait for more episodes to be released.
