J. Michael Straczynski, the co-creator of She-Ra has slammed critics of the new look character, after she was unveiled for a new Netflix series.

A reboot of the He-Man spin-off, a co-production with Dreamworks, will hit screens in November.

But in just the latest display of toxic fandom, there’s been a groundswell of fanboy criticism over her newly updated design.

Pleasingly, Straczynski is having absolutely none of it.

The new series will feature Aimee Carrero voicing She-Ra, Jordan Fisher as Seahawk, Marcus Sribner as Bow, Lorraine Toussaint as Shadow Weaver, Sandra Oh as Castaspella, Karen Fukuhara as Glimmer, AJ Michalka as Catra and Reshma Shetty as Angella.

She-Ra first aired in 1985, as a female foil to He-Man, with the cartoon series centring around Princess Adora, the twin sister of Prince Adam.

Abducted at birth by Skeletor’s former mentor Hordak, she raises the Sword of Protection to transform herself into her super alter-ego.
