The latest She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 3 trailer is full of action. Netflix released the trailer today during the reboot's Comic-Con panel to enthusiastic responses from fans. The streaming platform has been having great success with the new take on the She-Ra franchise as a new generation of fans gets in on the fun. The series first premiered in November 2018 and sees Adora (Aimee Carrero) growing up as a soldier in the Horde alongside her best friend Catra (AJ Michalka). Season 3 will see the introduction of Geena Davis' Huntara character.
As we've just learned at San Diego Comic-Con, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power season 3 has added Geena Davis to the cast. The Comic-Con trailer features Davis' character, Huntara, as she goes toe-to-toe with Adora and things look like they're about to get pretty intense. As for what fans can expect looking further into season 3, showrunner Noelle Stevenson revealed some more information, which you can read below.
"The first season was about setting these characters up, season 2 was about switching things up and pushing the characters deeper. Three throws characters into situations they've never been in before. This is the season where all the characters are going to go to the Crimson Waste, and all the characters are out of their element."
It's in the Crimson Waste where Adora and crew will come in contact with Geena Davis' Huntara for the first time. Huntara will reluctantly help Adora, Glimmer, and Bow on a mysterious quest. Davis famously took up archery at the age of 41 and quickly excelled at the sport. She nearly joined the U.S. Olympic team for the 2000 games in Sydney after finishing 29th out of 300 at the national championships, so the Huntara role is almost too perfect for the actress/archer.
Geena Davis joins the returning cast of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, which includes Sandra Oh, Aimee Carrero, AJ Michalka, Karen Fukuhara, Lauren Ash, Marcus Scribner, Lorraine Toussaint, Vella Lovell, Reshma Shetty, Christine Woods, Jordan Fisher, Merit Leighton, Adam Ray, and Krystal Joy Brown. The GLAAD- and Emmy-nominated Netflix original series has been carving out quite the name for itself since debuting late last year and fans are anxious to see where it will go next. Thankfully, the wait won't be very long.
She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is all set to premiere August 2nd, exclusively on Netflix. She-Ra was first introduced in Filmation's 1985 movie He-Man and She-Ra: The Secret of the Sword. He-Man fans learned that she is the long-lost twin sister of He-Man, which then spawned her own successful TV series and toy line. She was not included in the live-action Masters of the Universe movie, though many thought she should have been at the time. Maybe she will be included at some point in Sony's upcoming Masters of the Universe reboot.
