@LauraSreebny: Not sure if anyone is going officially as of this minute - but I know a bunch of the crew were sneaking around the last one!
@mickequ: hehe, guilty, I got some great stuff at the last one!!!
@gullshriek: went last year and it was excellent, want to go again but probably very quietly and unofficially for now
@JordanHass: Hey Katy, so you're working on She-Ra along with that Frogboy Rian - I just want to know if you had any vivid memories of the original She-Ra growing up? Any memorable moments or playset adventures?
@Kate_Farina: My dark confession is that I never watched the original She-Ra! But I do remember wanting a Swift Wind toy because honestly, who wouldn't??
COMMENTS FROM CAST AND CREW
Excerpt taken from Animation Magazine's "Rising Stars Of 2018" (April, 2018 issue featuring Showrunner/Executive Producer Noelle Stevenson):
These days the talented 26-year-old Columbia, South Carolina native is busy running one of the hottest shows of the year: the upcoming Netflix reboot of She-Ra. "I've always been hungry for fantasy and sci-fi that heavily featured women," says Stevenson. "She-Ra was ahead of its time in that sense, and we still don't see action/adventure with female leads nearly as much as I would like these days. That's starting to change, which is very exciting. It's the perfect moment for She-Ra to return!"
Stevenson loves all the possibilities that a mostly female cast open to the creative team. "We're not constrained to having only aspirational female characters, they can be heroic and villainous and silly and emotional and angry and loud and strong and weak - you know, human." So, what can fans expect to see in the new series? "Rainbows, spaceships, pirates, sparkles, tears, robots, magic, technology, mystery, mythology, teen angst, and just so many super-powered princesses," she promises. "Just so many!"
@jenbendraws: Hello! Soon @kikiinspace will be joining me as a director on She-Ra as well.
@jenbendraws: It's @kikiinspace's first week as a director on She-Ra and my mom surprised us by sending a METRIC TON of roses?! Happy first week!
@gullshriek: its uniquely frustrating to be like, maximum levels of sweaty nerd abt the thing you work on, and not being able to just like go look at AMVs or ****post or whatever about it
@gullshriek: I'm so used to producing some garbage content and immediately tweeting it without even looking at it, or just getting on tumblr and typing "jasper" or etc and getting 90000 memes and conspiracy theories
@gullshriek: I've had to make all my own memes and print them out and put them up on a corkboard at the office. set me free
@hamesatron: this has been my hell for like five years
@gullshriek: ive only been in it for one and im ready to die
@Alliandoalice: have you printed my memes yet
@gullshriek: no but thanks for reminding me
@gullshriek: i don't have any control on story or anything i just get to make sure everybodys lookin cute and that theres at least one extremely jacked hot woman somewhere in any given crowd of people and then i get to eat all the good writing
@gullshriek: o its extremely easy to like, hear something they're planning for an upcoming episode and just YELL about it
@xoxobouma: youre doing important work out here
@gullshriek: SOMEbody laid the groundwork for me so right
