    She-Ra, the title character from the DreamWorks/Netflix animated series "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, is now a meet-and-greet character at Universal's "Islands of Adventure" theme park in Orlando, Forida!

    Social media lit up on Sunday, June 23rd after Universal Orlando Resort and Orlando Informer announced She-Ra's debut. Soon after, fans were posting pictures of themselves with She-Ra (Character Perfomer Jillian Gizzi) in The Lost Continent section of the park. Later in the day, Jillian Gizzi posted the following message to her Instagram page:

    "Everyone has that one thing they’re weird about. I’ve always had an insecurity about my height. It’s really incredible to see things that promote your insecurities in a positive, and STRONG way. This is She-Ra. She’s tall, and a warrior."

    gothikbettie (Angela) on Instagram came up with She-Ra's makeup look. She credits Cat Chimento for doing the the makeup in the photo that she provided to He-Man.org. According to Michael Aiello, Senior Director of Entertainment and Creative Development for Universal Orlando Resort, She-Ra's costume was designed in-house and approved by DreamWorks.

    When asked, Universal Orlando Resort had no information to provide on how long She-Ra would be staying on at Islands of Adventure. However, one of the people that Gizzi tagged in her Instagram post, Taylor Simonds, Senior editor for WMW, posted that She-Ra will be there for three months.

    Season 3 of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is coming to Netflix on August 2nd.

    I was honestly half expecting her to be a meet and great character in some form, since Dreamworks is owned by Universal.

    However I think this is high as the ceiling goes for the show in regards to representation at Universal parks.

    As far as I'm aware Universa Orlando's third park is meant to have a Dreamworks land, so I wouldn't be suprised if She-Ra and possibly a few others of the cast became a more permanent ficture of that parks roaming characters.

    Very cool! If I lived in the US, it would be great to "meet" She-Ra.

    That's a nifty way to promote the character and the show. She looks good in the outfit. I'm going to be there early August. I'll have to see if I can meet the Princess of Power then.

    I think a MOTU/POP theme park would be totally awesome!

    Whoever is portraying She-Ra is the perfect casting for the Netflix version. She has a really pretty face but it's soft and more round which is perfect considering the source material.

    It is possible appearances may be extended if the meet and greet get high marks from the guest satisfaction surveys. So don't take August 31 as a super hard for sure until closer to the end date.

    Universal Orlando's third park is going to have a Dreamworks land, so it's possible this might be a way to test the waters for her as a meat and greet character, for that park.

    I just got back from Universal Studios Islands of adventure, and yes She-Ra is still making appearances! She has a schedule: 10:30AM, 11:30AM, 12:30PM, 2:00PM, 3:00PM, and 4:00PM. The actress playing her is AWESOME! She knows the show inside and out! It was so fun talking to her! If you have a chance, go by and see her!

    Stuck on the west coast. Need to find out how to get to Florida for cheap without driving. Maybe by train?

    Well, She-Ra is still making appearances at Island of Adventure. I was there today and got a picture with her. There's no signage or anything. She is just brought out and she stands there. Thankfully, there were several children who noticed her and took their pictures with her. She was very nice and got interested and asked me questions. She interacted well with the kids as well.
