SDCC 2019: 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' season 3 trailer released, new installment to focus on Lauren Ash's Scorpia
The cast neither confirmed nor denied the possibility of a musical episode. The panel saw new footage from season 3 which introduced fans to Huntara, the leader of the Crimson Waste, played by Oscar-award winning actress, Geena Davis.
The ongoing San Diego Comic-Con 2019 saw 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' fans receive more than just a glimpse of what they could expect in the upcoming season. Executive producer Noelle Stevenson and stars Aimee Carrero (Adora/She-Ra), Karen Fukuhara (Glimmer), Marcus Scribner (Bow) and Lauren Ash (Scorpia) provided Comic-Con-goers with a sneak peek of season 3.
The panel kicked off with some sizzle reels from season 2 and this was followed by the cast talking about the third installment. Stevenson spoke of the situations the characters would be put into in the third season. "We're pushing them even more... we're gonna throw characters into situations they've never been in before. This is the season where they're all going to the Crimson Waste... and they're so out of their element," he said.
Ash, who plays Scorpia, the female Horde enforcer said that while she couldn't give anything away, she most definitely could say her character was "literally" the most loyal being to have ever existed. She said: "She loves hard to her own detriment... I think that it's actually really relatable... I think we've all had times in our lives where someone you really really cared about was really ambivalent about you."
Talking about being loyal to the Horde, Ash felt Scorpia was in a vulnerable place at the beginning, "She's someone who didn't really fit in and didn't have a sense of self, and there was this group that was willing to take her on and that became her family. It's not that they like that they're bad, that's just her family and she has an identity with them."
Stevenson chipped in by saying season 3 will be more about Scorpia, played by Fukuhara. What the cast or Stevenson didn't confirm nor deny was the possibility of a musical episode. Carrero, who plays She-Ra/Adora, also added that her character most definitely doesn't have a good singing voice. As reported by CBR, Stevenson went on to explain that the third season picks up right after season 2.
"We find both Adora and Catra (AJ Michalka) thrown into whole new situations right away where Catra is in disgrace with the Horde and Adora is dealing with Shadow Weaver being here," Stevenson said about the beginning of season 3.
"I think Adora sees Shadow Weaver (Lorraine Toussaint) as like a dysfunctional mother figure, so there is love there so when she shows up on her turf... I think it also throws her identity into a tailspin. It's interesting to see what that does to her new sense of self," Carrero explained.
A series of clips about season 3 were showcased. One of them showed Adora attempting to sneak out to see Shadow Weaver. The second clip saw Light Hope giving out more information and showing Adora she's not from Etheria.
Talking about Adora, Carrero said the character was "growing up". The other clip showed the Horde running into the Crimson Waste, a desolate part of Etheria, which Scorpia refers to as home.
One of the new clips showed Huntara (Geena Davis), one of the new characters in the upcoming season. Stevenson said Huntara was the perfect character for Davis who is introduced in the Crimson Waste. The panel then concluded with the trailer of season 3.
The trailer for the third season hints at the arrival of Huntara, played by Geena Davis, and that she would have a few tricks up her sleeve at the Crimson Wave. The footage also gave a glimpse of Adora’s origins. The footage sees a lot of princesses and there most definitely is a lot of action.
'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' is now available on Netflix. Season 3 premieres August 2.
