Universal’s newest in-park character, She-Ra, now has a set schedule for her meet-and-greets at Islands of Adventure.
After a surprise Orlando debut for the star of the Netflix animated series “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power,” Universal has now told Orlando Rising the character will meet guests every day at 10:30 am., 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. at a spot in the park’s Lost Continent area between Mythos and Poseidon’s Fury.
Universal has not said if character greeting will last past the busy summer season — with crowds especially drawn to Islands of Adventure thanks to demand for the new Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure roller coaster.
For now, She-Ra is the only character from the show, produced by Comcast and Universal’s DreamWorks Animation studio, appearing at Universal Orlando.
The show’s third season is set to debut on Netflix this August. Its first two seasons have drawn critical acclaim, being nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award and a GLAAD Media Award for its representation of LGBT characters and relationships.
The original incarnation of She-Ra did enjoy a short stay inside Universal parks. The character was briefly featured at Universal Studios Hollywood in 1985 alongside other characters related to “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” and its spinoffs.
