Weekend Away #12 - Moonlit Devlan...

Here is an example of how the artists at Filmation took it to next level with the She-Ra series backgrounds. Moon backgrounds were a rarity during the He-Man series, often saved for those special dramatic scenes. The She-Ra series would often employ background images of the moon, the clouds spiraling nearby, to create a sense of atmosphere. In this beautiful panning shot from the She-Ra season one episode "Duel at Devlan" we can see the small village of Devlan lit by the two Etherian moons...

What a way to start off the She-Ra series, following the 5-Part "Secret Of The Sword!" That opening image of the Etherian Moons was always impressive! Reminds me of the shot of Prince Adam preparing to transform into He-Man, from "Into The Abyss," as he stands in front of the Eternian Moons. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

WOW. The clouds and the moons are simply brilliant!

Gotta hand it once again to Filmation background painters. They did a fantastic job here!

Thank you for making this pan-shot!
