She-Ra, Princess of Power, leads a rebellion to free her land of Etheria from the monstrous invaders the Horde.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power received critical acclaim, with particular praise for its diverse cast and the complex relationship between She-Ra and her best friend-turned-archenemy Catra.



Jasmine (Age 14) - ★★★★★

"She-Ra is one of my all time, it follows a girl named Adora who has the ability to become the mythical superhero She-Ra. Adora is forced to unite all the princesses of the land to fight against the evil Lord Hordak. So many things can be said about this show, I love the fact that the representation is normalized as we see these characters of varying races and genders coming together. Its LGBT representation is brilliant and overall, I would recommend."

For more action packed animation with strong female characters, this time from Studio Ghibli, Princess Mononoke is hard to beat. There's fantastic representation in The Legend of Korra and it's predecessor Avatar: The Last Airbender. We have our very own black Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. You can take a look back at the '80s versions of He-Man and She-Ra - a little dated but still lots of fun. The Iron Giant is another misunderstood hero, there's rebels in space in Star Wars: Rebels. Meanwhile the recent Ron's Gone Wrong has a lot of the same creative team behind it.
