In honor of She-Ra and Soft Wind’s 30-plus years galloping across the pop culture landscape, protecting the kingdom from evils far and wide, DreamWorks Animation Television and executive producers Noelle Stevenson and Chuck Austen are brining the Princess of Power back — but this time, she’s not coming back alone.

Check out our first look at She-Ra and the Princesses of Power above (poster form) and below (original tweet):

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is the story of an orphan named Adora, who leaves behind her former life in the evil Horde when she discovers a magic sword that transforms her into the mythical warrior princess She-Ra. Along the way, she finds a new family in the Rebellion as she unites a group of magical princesses in the ultimate fight against evil.

From Eisner Award-winning author and executive producer Noelle Stevenson (Lumberjanes, Nimona) comes a modern take on the ‘80s girl power icon for a new generation of young fans. The trailblazing property originally debuted in 1985 to satisfy overwhelming demand for a female lead fantasy series. With Stevenson’s unique voice at the helm, fans are in store for an epic and timely tale that celebrates female friendship and empowerment, lead by a warrior princess tailor made for today. The series will be available to Netflix members worldwide in 2018.”

The voice cast for She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (some of whom are pictured above) includes: Aimee Carrero (Young & Hungry) as Adora/She-Ra; Jordan Fisher (Dancing with the Stars) as Seahawk; Marcus Scribner (black-ish) as Bow; Lorraine Toussaint (Orange is the New Black) as Shadow Weaver; Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) as Castaspella; Karen Fukuhara (Suicide Squad) as Glimmer; AJ Michalka (The Goldbergs) as Catra; Reshma Shetty (Royal Pains) as Angella; Keston John (The Good Place) as Hordak; Lauren Ash (Superstore) as Scorpia; Christine Woods (Hello Ladies) as Entrapta; Genesis Rodriguez (Time After Time) as Perfuma; Vella Lovell (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Mermista; Merit Leighton (Katie and Alexa) as Frosta; and Krystal Joy Brown (Motown: The Musical) as Netossa.
