'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' Season 5 Preview: Adora faces her greatest threat, but without her powers
The final battle looms, bringing the series to a close, but Etheria has never been in a worse defensive position
Things on Etheria have never looked so dire. Not only has Etheria been returned to the greater universe, bringing the armies of Horde Prime (Keston John) to its doorstep, but the planet's greatest champion, Adora (Aimee Carrero) finds herself at a loss with no access to the powers of She-Ra.
Members of the Rebellion were already on the ropes last season, as Catra's (AJ Michalka) rise to prominence and Hordak's (Keston John) need to conquer Etheria entirely had the Princesses of the Rebellion outdone at every turn. On top of everything else, however, Adora discovered that Etheria was not what it seemed. The entire planet had been primed to use as a weapon, one that could be channeled through the Sword of Power. She-Ra had just been a pawn for greater forces, and to avoid being used, She-Ra sacrificed her power to save all of Etheria.
With her sword in pieces and Etheria surrounded by Horde Prime's intergalactic fleet, the planet finds itself without its greatest champion, and without its queen. Glimmer (Karen Fukuhara) is captive aboard Horde Prime's ship, along with Catra. Etheria's at its breaking point and Adora is going to need to find her own destiny without the power of She-Ra to guide her.
This season brings the story of 'She-Ra and the Princesses of Power' to a close, bringing an end to five seasons of the popular revival. Helmed by Noelle Stephenson, the series has garnered a passionate fanbase, all geared up to watch the series finale where the stakes have never been higher.
The season's final trailer shows Adora at a loss in regards to what to do next, even as the invading armies of Horde Prime set out to conquer Etheria once and for all. The robotic armies of Horde Prime are a formidable threat and Horde Prime himself has an endless army of clones of himself to make things that much more challenging. The trailer also features Catra, who has been vying for more power since the series began. Her role in all this is very much in question, but given her personal rivalry with Adora, it's sure to be significant. You can watch the trailer for the final season below.
The final season of She-Ra releases on Netflix on May 15.
