The "Star Wars" films, most notably "Star Wars: Episode IV - Return of the Jedi" were strong influences behind the cartoon. The cartoon is about the Great Rebellion fighting to free Etheria from Hordak. Princess Adora/She-Ra is He-Man/Prince Adam's long-lost twin sister, separated from Adam when she was kidnapped by Hordak as a baby and Adora/She-Ra who serves Hordak as the Captain of the Evil Horde sides with the Great Rebellion when she learns the truth of her past.

During the opening credits, Castle Grayskull's Jaw-Bridge is missing when Adora transforms into She-Ra. This mistake is also seen in 5 part origin story that opens the series and The Secret of the Sword. It was corrected for each subsequent episode, but not for the opening title sequence. See more »

As a young boy of the 80's I loved everything that had anything to do with He-man. When a new show featuring his twin sister debued I of course watched it for He-man...and found myself drawn into the wonderful world of Etheria. She-ra is an example of everything done right in a cartoon. It had action, compassion, humor, games, and life lessons. She-ra herself should be seen as an inspiration to young girls everywhere. She was strong, powerful, a leader, and wise. Another comment said She-ra was based loosely off of Wonder Woman...this may be so, but I honestly believe that She-ra was the main inspiration fot the famous "Xena: Warrior Princess." My friend and I found old tapes of She-ra at the library. After viewing it today, older and wiser, the stories truly are brilliantly done and there is even more humor than what I remembered. I recommend She-ra to anyone who loves action and fantasy.
