Los Angeles, CA (July 5, 2007) – BCI, a Navarre Corporation Company, and the UK's leading global media company and underlying rights owner, Entertainment Rights Plc ("ER") present the final season of the fan-favorite animated series, "She-Ra." The final 28 episodes will be included in this 6-DVD set and will be released on September 4th under the Ink & Paint brand at a suggested retail price of $39.98.
Etheria, the planet scarred by war and strife, needs a hero to free it from the tyranny of Hordak and his Evil Horde. Enter She-Ra – strong, beautiful, courageous – and her magical allies: all willing to join the Great Rebellion and free Etheria from fear and oppression. New warriors from the kingdom of Bright Moon also appear to stop the villains making their debut, emerging from the darkness of the Fright Zone. And as the battle rages, who could blame She-Ra if she occasionally asked for help from her brother, He-Man?
"She-Ra: The Complete Season Two" brings this classic animated series to its thrilling conclusion. Witness birth and death, magic and madness, fantasy and fear as She-Ra comes ever closer to freeing Etheria from Hordak's grasp. Evil must be defeated, but time is running out…for these are the final adventures of She-Ra!
