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
According to Lou Scheimer in the book "Creating the Filmation Generation", the first suggestion for She-Ra's name was 'She-Ro', referring to He-Man's original name, 'He-Ro'. But Lou thought that name didn't sound feminine. Writer Lawrence G. DiTillio then came up with She-Ra, referring to the Egyptian word for god, "Ra". However, Ra actually means sun in the ancient Egyptian and not the word god. Ra is the name of the ancient sun god. See more »
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 The Secret of the Sword. It was corrected for each subsequent episode, but not for the opening title sequence.

One of the best animated series' of just not the 1980s but of all time!
I always liked She-Ra. She was such a cool and fantastic woman cartoon character. I loved it when ever she joined up with her brother He-Man.This series may not have been as epic are spectacular as He-Man and the Masters of the Universe but She-Ra: The Princess of Power was a good animated series none the less!
