He-Man is one of biggest toy success stories of all time. Also one of the most popular cartoon series in the 80s. According to Mattel, girls expressed interest in He-Man toys and TV series. She-Ra was introduced in the animated movie "The Secret of the Sword" (1985) as He-Man's sister. She-Ra also had her own cartoon TV series and toy line. Netflix and DreamWorks are rebooting She-Ra as a cartoon TV series. If Sony introduces She-Ra in their "Masters of the Universe" franchise, which popular actress would be a good choice for the role?

My vote: Karen Gillan

She could be fun as She-Ra.

My question is not about who shall play her but more as to quality. Will it be better? When I saw Qubo showing reruns of She-Ra, the quality of the animation and stories was pretty bad with the same lines (not catch phrases but while lines of dialogue) and shots being used over and over again. He- man wasn't much better. When they tried to make the live action Masters of the Universe 1987, with Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langella, was pretty much a meh film even though I personally thought that Frank Langella's more sinister menacing take on Skeletor surpassed the source material that had Skeletor pretty much a raving megalomaniac.
Again, it is not who plays her, but it is the quality of the production, story, and acting that matter more.

I think He-Man will have some quality and may do well like Jumanji.  Jumanji passed Justice League at the box office.  I haven't seen it but seems like Sony is making an effort producing quality movies.  And Goyer had plenty of time writing story.

Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle Poster

"She-Ra: Princess of Power" was a production of Filmation. The studio's character designs and scenery designs were often brilliant, but they relied on limited animation and various cost-saving techniques.

I found She-Ra to having a more interesting plot than He-Man, and some more interesting character dynamics. Largely credited to the series' co-creator J. Michael Straczynski (1954-). He went on to create "Babylon 5" and write comic book stories for Spider-Man, Thor, and the Fantastic Four.

I see She-Ra as tall and athletic. Some of these actresses aren't even 5'7! One is only 5'4.
