5.0 out of 5 stars "For the honor of Grayskull!" May 6, 2006
Format:DVD
My life is complete.

I have spent MANY, MANY YEARS waiting for "She-Ra" to come out on DVD, and it's FINALLY happening! HOORAY!

The release of the "She-Ra" DVD sets will be similar to that of the "He-Man" DVDs. The first "She-Ra" DVD set will consist of the movie "The Secret of the Sword" (which features He-Man and explains how Adam has a twin sister, how Adora became She-Ra, etc.) as well as five of the most popular episodes from the series, which were voted on by fans at He-Man.org. The five episodes that will be featured on the "Best of She-Ra" DVD are "The Price of Freedom," "The Sword in the Stone," "Horde Prime Takes a Holiday," "Of Shadows and Skulls," and (my personal favorite) "Sweet Bee's Home."

The quality of the "He-Man" DVD sets is incredible, and the "She-Ra" DVDs are expected to be just as good, if not better. In addition to the fully restored episodes, the "Best of She-Ra" DVD set will include a documentary, feature-length audio commentary, a music video, storyboard spreads, DVD-ROM scripts, "She-Ra" trivia, hidden Easter eggs, and two collectible comic book art cards. How cool is that?!

Also, just like the "He-Man" DVDs, the complete "She-Ra: Princess of Power" series will be released on DVD in three separate volumes beginning this fall. Each DVD set will contain a variety of special bonus features.

Words cannot express how excited I am about this DVD set! I grew up obsessed with She-Ra, and I am STILL obsessed with She-Ra! When I was a young girl I owned all the She-Ra action figures, the Crystal Castle...even that awful Crystal Falls playset that had a pump shaped like a seashell and squirted water all over everything! I had She-Ra books, She-Ra clothes, a She-Ra birthday cake...EVERYTHING!

5.0 out of 5 stars She-Ra Princess Of Power finally on DVD May 4, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
BCI The people responcible for He-Man's DVDS are releasing all 93 episodes of She-Ra in 3 volumes like the He-Man sets.

All 3 sets will contain special features by the makers of the show just like the He-Man ones. first one is due in full, next in about feb 07, last about june 07. The New Adventures of He-Man will be released in 2 volumes at the same time as the last 2 She-Ra volumes. the Final original He-Man volume will be released at the same time as the first She-Ra Volume.

This volume is a 2 disc set to the Best Of She-Ra featuring The Secret Of The Sword Movie Version and 5 Best Episodes on the second disc which are EPI 56. Of Shadows and Skulls/EPI 85. Sweet Bee's Home/EPI 18. Horde Prime Takes A Holiday/EPI 21. The Stone In The Sword/EPI 29. The Price Of Freedom

The Secret Of The Sword was also the first five episodes of She-Ra with a lot of extra scenes on it which will be the first 5 episodes on the first 1 out of 3 She-Ra volumes

She-Ra is one of the best 80's classics. plus it liturally follows on from He-Man as the Secret Of The Sword tells us and now all us fans can finally see what has not been on TV for the past 15 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great She-Ra DVD Release June 27, 2006
Format:DVD
When you are discussing cartoons from the 1980's that were geared primarily towards girls Jem & The Holograms and She-Ra are certain to come up in discussion. She-Ra was a spin off series from the popular syndicated cartoon series He Man and the Masters of the Universe. She-Ra premiered on television in 1985. The show was very popular with girls--and boys. She-Ra was a tough girl and she could hang with the bad guys. Although she was He-Man's twin sister, she lived in her own world and had her own set of characters. Whereas He Man's primary nemesis was Skeletor She-Ra had to fight Hordak and his realm. Similar to the He-Man character, She-Ra had an alter less dynamic side. When she wasn't She-Ra she was a more human woman named Adora.

The Best Of She-Ra-The Princess of Power are the first actual She-Ra episodes to arrive on DVD. Fans of the He-Man/She-Ra franchise will recall that BCI Eclipse released a He-Man "best of" last summer as a pre-curser to releasing season sets of the show. The Best of She-Ra Princess of Power includes the feature film "The Secret of The Sword." This film introduced the She-Ra character and her connected to Prince Adam/He-Man. This film is featured on disc one of the set.

Disc 2 includes five fan voted favorite episodes. The episodes included with the set are as follows:

Of Shadows and Skulls-Episode #56

Sweet Bee's Home-Episode #85

Horde Prime Takes a Holiday-Episode #18

The Stone In The Sword-Episode #21

The Price of Freedom-Episode #29

Of the favorite chosen episodes He-Man is featured in three of the episodes. This says that fans enjoyed when the two shows crossed paths. In addition to the episodes the second disc includes a documentary and other bonus features.

5.0 out of 5 stars An (ALMOST) Perfect DVD Release! July 20, 2006
Format:DVD
The Best of She-Ra release was almost flawless with the only problem being that they didn't choose to include the 5-Part Extended Version of Secret of the Sword which apparently is what all the fans really wanted to see. However, since the boxed sets are on their way and those will be the first 5 epsiodes that are included the lapse is entirely forgivable and I suppose if they had to shove Secret of the Sword Lite somewhere the best-of disc compendium is probably a good place for it since people would be unlikely to buy a stand-alone version and there might not be sufficient space on the upcoming box set release. However, everything else is perfect. They've included all three versions of the "I Have The Power" music video (Sing-A-Long, Extended, and Spanish), two trailers for Secret of the Sword's theatrical release, and some very nice interviews with the Scheimers (Lou & Erika) and many others involved in the project including Babylon 5's J. Michael Straczynski who (in a refreshing change from the Hollywood norm) isn't now too important to give an interview for work done in the past. I daresay this approach to releasing series is one of the best I've seen and should become an industry standard.
