Netflix and DreamWorks revealed six new original cartoons that’ll be coming to our screens in 2018. Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, The Boss Baby: Back in Business, Harvey Street Kids, The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants, Trollhunters (Part 3) and 3 Below, but the most exciting of all: She-Ra Princess of Power will be returning and the show will be helmed by none other than Lumberjanes and Nimona creator Noelle Stevenson.
Stevenson is the Eisner Award-winning creator behind some of the biggest comics phenomenons of the past decade. BOOM! Studios’ Lumberjanes is the tale of a group of young girls at a magical summer camp, and Nimona explores the path of a young shapeshifter who just happens to have a penchant for villainy. Both books gained a huge cult following and are currently being adapted for the big screen. Stevenson is an inspired choice for this project. Not only did Nimona put a subversive spin on the techno barbarian genre which is also home to He-Man and She-Ra, but her storytelling often focuses on the struggles of young women coming of age and learning how to deal with burgeoning powers.
