Oooh, Rai, no. Art style plays a huge part in animation. If you have a super detailed art style, that means more time animators have to draw, which costs more money. It also plays into what style of animation you're going for, but that's an entire rant in of itself.

IMO I like the new style. It's cute!

Doesn't look anything like the previous iteration. The one on the right looks like a guy with long hair. Why did they remove her breasts? Why did they put shorts under the dress?

The one on the left looks so strong and feirce, she looks like someone who is very important and very powerful. The one on the right looks like someone trying to pretend to be her. Where are her muscles?

This is one reboot that I can see failing like many other reboots have. If you don't respect the source material then it's just not going to work.

Maybe it stars a younger She-Ra? He-Man had a simillar reboot where the titular character was a younger.
Despite liking the one on the left better, I do think the new design is rather cute. It looks charming.

Could be, but I wish they wouldn't so many prequels, the market is over saturated with them to be honest.

I would love to see some sequels.

Probably because she's supposed to be 16-years-old?? Yes, she's even 16 in the picture on the left.

Really?

Wow, she looks much older in the picture on the left.

Still though, she doesn't really look 16 on the right, she looks more like she is 12-14 or something.

He-man canonically is 16 in the 80s cartoon, he and She-ra are twins, therefore, she is 16-years-old in the 80s cartoon.
Yes, these two are 16.


Needless to say, I'M GLAD THEY CHANGED HER DESIGN. Whether she looks 14 or not, I'm still glad. It's WAY better for her to look 14 than for her to look 25.

I'm bored of reboots generally (not a shot at TR, this is general comment). Why are we insisting on making half-baked crap versions of old shows all the time? Have we collectively run out of ideas as a society?

The reaction does seem to be mostly negative too. Of course you have some people who are still being PC and asking disingenuous **** like "why do adults want childrens' characters to be sexy?". As if they can't tell the difference between de-sexualisation, and flat out removing anything a little girl would be able to see as "female" and see herself in. I am glad I'm seeing some women finally speaking up and saying "****, this is offensive, why can't female characters actually look like women anymore?"

This is awful character design. It's not even just that, her outfit looks like trash too. It's like a cheap store-bought rip-off you'd see someone wearing at a fancy dress party.
