Amazon is developing the first-ever live-action She-Ra series.
Variety reports that the project is still in its very early stages and currently no writer is attached.
However, DreamWorks Animation will serve as an executive producer after recently making the Netflix animated series She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
The live-action version will be a new, standalone story and will not be connected to the animated show.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power ran for five seasons and 52 episodes on Netflix with the fifth and final season dropping in May 2020.
When it was announced the series was coming to an end, showrunner Noelle Stevenson explained that it was always set to be 52 episodes.
“It has been such an incredible journey so far just getting to share these seasons that are already out and seeing the reactions,” Noelle explained.
“I do feel very lucky because we knew from the very beginning what our episode order was, so we got to tailor the story very specifically to how long the show was gonna be.”
She continued: “The story definitely evolved along the way, from people who worked on it and following the story threads that seemed right and where the characters led us. We set out with a plan, we executed that plan, so it’s very satisfying to see it wrap up like this.”
The finale of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power had a groundbreaking ending, with Adora and Catra sharing a kiss.
Speaking about the ending, Noelle told Digital Spy last May: “I had been wanting to do that since season one, and wasn’t sure how much of that I was going to be able to have in the show.
“It was sort of a push and pull for pretty much the entire length of the show about what we would be able to show, and what we would have to keep between the lines.
“But when we reached that final season, I showed my cards to the people who had the right of refusal for that, and it was like, ‘Look, this is what we’ve been building to this whole time. This needs to happen for both of these characters’.
“I wanted to make it so integral to the story in a way that – one, they wouldn’t be able to take it out, and two, to give it a moment… it’s the climax. It needs to be there. It needs to happen the way it does. And that was really important to me.”
