Back in 2013, a small film was released close to the Christmas holidays. A film about two sisters (one cursed with magic) who must mend their relationship and save their kingdom from corruption. But, once upon a time, this little film had a very different premise. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, the original pitch followed a young woman trying to stop an icy witch, keeping more in line with the original fairy tale. However, a single decision changed all this, the decision to make the film a ballad about sisterly love. And in an instant, Disney had a hit on their hands, even though they wouldn’t know it until it broke box office records and became one of the highest grossing animated films of all time. Soon the film was followed by two shorts, and finally the announcement that a sequel was on the way. But after the colossal mess of Ralph Breaks The Internet, would Disney be able to finally deliver a solid animated sequel? Well, yes and in some cases no.
Since its beginnings on Netflix, She-Ra and the Princesses of Power has delivered three years of superb animated television. The second and third season only suffering from their split format, which left the story arc shared between them feel short and somewhat unresolved by the end of season two. But now the show is back with its fourth season, an epic 13 episode arc that will leave fans breathless, beaming with joy and weeping in distress.
