The kidnapped daughter of Queen Marlena and King Randor of Eternia (characters from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe), Princess Adora grew up on Etheria. There, she lead an evil army until the day her long-lost twin brother, Prince Adam (He-Man), came to tell her who she really was. As her alter ego, She-Ra, the princess protects Etheria by fighting the forces she once worked for.Written by
The "Star Wars" films, most notably "Star Wars: Episode VI- 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 the 5 part origin story that opens the series and He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword. It was corrected for each subsequent episode, but not for the opening title sequence. See more »
The first five episodes feature the origin of She-Ra and introduce all the main characters. Of these, the the first three chapters start with an alternate opening sequence narrated by Lou Scheimer which introduces She-Ra and the Great Rebellion, but does not disclose her secret identity, as it is not revealed until the third chapter.

This series really struck a chord within me as a child, and I still have fond memories of watching it. I wish it had never ended, and I would love to buy it on DVD, along with many other cartoons (like He-Man, The Thundercats, and Snorkels.). Everyone should have a childhood filled with great cartoons like this.
