Netflix’s She-Ra massively flipped the status quo by centring a lesbian love story on a kid’s TV series — but the show’s creator has revealed that it almost didn’t happen.
Warning: major spoilers ahead for season five of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power.
The Emmy-nominated reboot of the hugely-popular 1980s series made huge strides for inclusivity on television, with a fantastically diverse and gender non-conforming cast. The show’s creator Noelle Stevenson wanted to go one step further, though.
She was determined that the relationship between the two starring characters, Adora and her frenemy Catra, would be the queer romance it was destined to be.
She-Ra’s creator made sure Adora and Catra could only end up together.
