This Friday, August 2nd, Netflix will release the third season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. It’s a show that many are excited for — including a number of Beat staffers — but that wasn’t always the case for the wider internet. When She-Ra’s redesign was first revealed, we heard tired complaints that we’d already heard too many times before. But now, more than a year out from that controversy, She-Ra has proven all the critics wrong. And Yael Tygiel recently spoke to the She-Ra cast to get their takes on how the show has grown and what it means to truly bring diversity to animation.
Watch as Tygiel speaks with She-Ra cast members Aimee Carrero (Adora/She-Ra), Merit Leighton (Frosta), Marcus Scribner (Bow), Lauren Ash (Scorpia), as well as Executive Producer Noelle Stevenson, to get yourself hyped up for season three of She-Ra! And don’t forget to subscribe to The Beat on YouTube for the latest on comics, film, and television breakdowns. We’re just getting started!

Along the way, she finds a new family in the Rebellion as she unites a group of magical princesses in the ultimate fight against evil.
