    Productions like this take years to get going, if they get going at all. You’ll hear about an IP being acquired and literally no news for several years, and that’s if things go smoothly. If they don’t go smoothly, you end up with the Naruto movie, which was announced by Lionsgate in 2016, only for the script to be thrown out in 2018 when the director flat out said he wouldn’t film it without the original creator’s blessing, and alleged casting in 2020 that went nowhere.

    That’s one example but Hollywood is a slow, SLOW machine and expecting any further news this year is probably overly optimistic. They need to carve out a time and date for the director to be free, build props and sets, and then finally cast everyone. Then you need everyone to be on the right page and begin without being sent back for rewrites or budget adjustments. And let’s not forget an executive “going in a different direction” and throwing the whole thing out for a tax write off like Batgirl.

    If it happens, which it should, it will take a lot of time to get going.

    No idea why people are hating on Rings Of Power, I've been watching it and it is amazing.

    As for She-Ra, I just want to see things progress and finally see this live action show.

    I am still devastated that Batgirl was cancelled, I had followed that for years and was so happy when filming ended coz it meant it wasn't going to be too long for a release.
    Then bang out of no where it gets canned.

    Who know's what they'll do? Amazon Studios hasn't been doing that great with shows based on big-named established fantasy franchises lately. I mean, look what's going on with Lord of the Rings.

    I much prefer to do my own thinking rather than listen to the totally annoying clickbait crowd.

    Guys, please be respectful towards each other. Talk about the show and not each other. Thanks.

    Hey thanks! It really wasn't even that hard to do


    There's a lot of people that enjoy the show. So someone on a video pointing out that it has less viewership than a show that's much more mainstream current somehow proves it's a flop seems silly. Especially when you can go read actual reviews from people who enjoyed it. Sure there are plenty of people who did not. But that doesn't mean either fan or critic is in "denial".


    If anything LOTR would be one of the hardest franchises to try and copy. That series meant the world to a lot of fans when it was only a book. Add to it they made some of the best cinema people have ever seen, it would certainly be hard to match that.

    My point is, I don't trust Amazon to do She-Ra justice. I love She-Ra so much, and if they butcher her, it would be incredibly disappointing, but not unexpected. I still have not seen Revelation. And refuse to. If She-Ra is done well, and enjoyable, I would be the first person to eat humble pie and say I was wrong. But I don't see that happening in any way, shape or form.

    I just hope it’s a completely different team that is involved with She-Ra than Ring of Power. I gave it a try but didn’t enjoy it enough to keep watching.

    Whether you love or hate RoP, you have to admit it’s not getting anywhere near universal praise. She-Ra should be enjoyable by everyone, that’s the type of show PoP needs.

    So on this point we can agree. I don't think She-ra will get anywhere near the budget that, IMO, would be required to pull a series like She-ra off. At least not without drastically changing the story and characters. You can make magical, colorful characters work but they've got to really look good for the average audience to take them seriously.

    EXACTLY.

    I can't believe that people continue to line the pockets of these people.

    Remember the days when we would all laugh at the cover images on The National Enquirer at the grocery store?

    Now, these types of stories are taken as gospel... outrageous claims made to look like fact, yet ZERO justification.

    Once again, I absolutely agree with you!

    Big same. This is the perspective I try to take with any project that's new to me.

    Please no political discussions in non-Tar Swamp forums including this thread. Also, lets refrain from name calling others including other people, websites, and youtubers. Thanks.

    Nicole Kassell is attached to some of the highest-rated shows and indie-films in recent memory... Watchmen being among them.

    If she is in any way attached to She-Ra, I would consider the news a win.

    No, no, I like most of Kassell’s work and said so earlier in the thread.

    It’s the idea of Stevenson having any influence on the final product that’s concerning.

    Good.

    I want Kassell to be as familiar as possible with all mythology and versions of POP. Why wouldn't you watch/read any source material to see what worked, what didn't, what has potential, what shouldn't be avoided, etc.

    I hope they talk too. Getting someone's feedback and hearing about their experiences is valuable information.

    I love when someone is set to be a first time filmmaker for Marvel or DC and the first thing they do is immerse themselves in years (even decades!) of the comics.
