She-Ra

Following the success of the He-Man animated series, between 1985 and 1986 Filmation created a spinoff series following the adventures of He-Man's long-lost twin sister and her transformation into She-Ra. The series ran for two seasons, although the second was cancelled before its run was over.

While She-Ra took part in a number of adventures, the primary focus of the show was the conflict between The Great Rebellion and the Evil Horde, as the people of Etheria attempted to drive the Horde off their world. Unlike Skeletor's forces on Eternia, the evil Horde was in a much greater position of power in Etheria, and commonly took over entire regions and enslaved Etherians.

The series premiered with the 1985 animated film The Secret of the Sword, which was later split into five episodes for syndication. The film sets up the conflict between the Horde and the Great Rebellion, as well as introducing She-Ra and establishing her relationship to Eternia and Castle Grayskull.

Most episodes consist of fantasy/sci-fi adventures in the same mold as the Masters of the Universe. Much like the He-Man series, some of the initial details, backstories, and designs seen in the toyline differed from the animated material.

Synopsis

Each episode begins with a basic introduction to the premise and lead character:

I am Adora, He-Man's twin sister, and defender of the Crystal Castle. This is Spirit, my beloved steed. Fabulous secrets were revealed to me the day I held aloft my sword and said, "For the honor of Grayskull! I am She-Ra!" Only a few others share this secret. Among them are Light Hope, Madame Razz, and Kowl. Together, we and my friends of the Great Rebellion strive to free Etheria from the evil forces of Hordak!
