I never watched the original She-Ra as it was a bit before my time. I do remember her brother and his show/movie He-Man. But Dreamworks seems to be remaking She-Ra alone on Netflix, as apparently there are no plans to introduce He-Man/Prince Adam into the story, but you never know. I was a little shocked to see a season 3, but it was more like they cut a true second season in half, and this is the more serious latter half of the story.
The season takes place not long after the first. Shadow Weaver had escaped her confinement by tricking Catra into letting her go. Now totally against Lord Hordak, she falls into the rebellion’s hands. Though not many trust her at all, and for good reason. But the dark sorceress seems to only want to talk to Adora.
Speaking of Adora, she’s till working on the whole becoming She-Ra thing. The princess rebellion seems to be at a stalemate again with the Horde. For every success, there is some kind of unseen failure and there’s seems to be very little progress. Adora really wants answers about what happened to the last She-Ra, Mara. And she might just get a hint of what that was.
The Horde isn’t doing to well either. Hordak has his own issues, which start to explain why he’s mostly been in a supervisor type role instead of taking on the princess rebellion directly. Catra has been demoted and imprisoned for letting Shadow Weaver go. Entrapta has been working hard trying to make a portal happen with First Ones’ tech, but will she pull the switch if she gets it to work?
Overall the third season is about what I expected. It’s a good bit better than the 2nd due to the better and more serious stories, but they’re about in the same league. Netflix let me know season four is coming out soon, which makes me wonder how prolific they are at making these seasons. It ends promising some pretty cool ideas, so I’ll be watching it soon.
