Loryn Stone has dedicated her life to the written Word of the Nerd. Her writing has also been published on other pop culture websites such as Cracked, LoadScreen, PopLurker, and Temple of Geek. Her debut young-adult novel "My Starlight" (a contemporary love letter to fandom, friendship, anime, cosplaying, love, and loss) is out now by Affinity Rainbow Publications. When she's not writing, Loryn's other interests include collecting robots (Megazords, specifically), playing bass, and blasting metal.

Okay, now I’m excited for the new She-Ra and the Princesses of Power after seeing this new full-length trailer.

Even if the thumbnail for the video reminds me of this screen cap from Sailor Moon R: Promise of the Rose film.

In my last breakdown of the teaser trailer that dropped last month, I’d made mention of how the new She-Ra really shows that much of the art team was inspired by the late 90s surrealist (sword fighting) anime Revolutionary Girl Utena. I’d jokingly mentioned that She-Ra’s costume janked Utena’s right down to the bike shorts. Which was a tongue in cheek reference. But now, they’re still really showing that influence not only with the opening sword practice scene in a stylized arena, but by the way Adora’s hair grows when she grabs the magic sword.

Yes, I realize Adora’s hair sort of grows in the original show, but the composition of the shot really screams Adolescence of Utena to me. Not a bad thing– I’m just really surprised that I’m able to so clearly nail these visual references.

I mean…come on.

The story seems to resemble the richness and complexity of a show like Avatar: The Last Airbender or The Legend of Korra. A world corrupted needs a group of rebels to use their chosen magic to save everyone. It’s a familiar premise, but these characters seem layered and charming.

She-Ra and the Princesses of Power will debut on Netflix on November 16th.
