SHE-RA Live-Action Series Enlists WATCHMEN's Nicole Kassell As Director And Executive Producer

An exciting update for She-Ra fans here, as the upcoming live-action series that's currently being developed for Prime Video has tapped Nicole Kassell (Watchmen, Westworld) to direct...

We first heard that a live-action She-Ra series was in development last September, and while updates have been pretty much non-existent since, it seems the project is finally starting to take shape.

According to Variety, Nicole Kassell is set to direct and executive produce the pilot episode (should it move forward). The filmmaker has previously helmed episodes of HBO's Watchmen, Westworld, The Leftovers, The Americans, and Castle Rock, so this show is in good hands.

DreamWorks, who worked on the recent Netflix animated series, will executive produce, but this is expected to be a standalone story with no connections to The Princesses of Power.

She-Ra debuted in 1985's He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword before going on to feature in her own animated spinoff, She-Ra: Princess of Power. The character was revived for the acclaimed She-Ra and the Princesses of Power Netflix series, which aired its fifth and final season back in 2020.

We still don't know very much about this live-action project, but both animated shows followed Adora as she struggled with embracing her destiny as the protector of Etheria. There were significant differences, however, as the Netflix series removed any connection to He-Man and made the young warrior a Horde soldier who comes to realize that she's fighting for the bad guys.

Be sure to let us know what you make of this news and share your Adora casting picks in the comments section.
