She-Ra: Princess of Power
is a spin off of Matell's very popular toy line, comic, and cartoon series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
, created in order to attract girls to the franchise. It tells the story of Adora, Prince Adam's (He-Man's) twin sister, who lives in the world of Etheria. Adora possesses the Sword of Power ,the same as Adam's. Whenever there is trouble, Adora would lift her sword and say "For the honor of Grayskull! I am She-Ra!"
She would then become She-Ra, the Princess of Power. Her trusty steed Spirit would become a winged unicorn named Swift Wind. Like He-man, Adora also keeps her She-Ra identity a secret. Among those who know are Light Hope, the mystical guardian of the Crystal Castle, Madam Razz, a clumsy but good witch, and Kowl, a small creature who can fly, thanks to his big ears. Adora is the leader of the Great Rebellion. She fights to free Etheria from an evil tyrant known as Hordak, and his minions. The series had its debut with the movie The Secret of the Sword
, which is actually the first five episodes of the series combined together. The toy line and comics were short lived and not as popular as the original Masters of the Universe, but the cartoon was almost as popular as He-Man.
