Odd lights.

The She-Ra season one episode "Anchors Aloft" Part 2 is beautifully directed by Bob Arkwright. There are many wonderful moments of direction throughout this episode, particularly on character animation. However, one oddity occurs when we see a Horde ship depart slowly into the night; it appears to be lit up like the fourth of July! I can understand that the director wants to show the vastness of the ship with all the lights, but the multicolored effect makes it look like a production on Broadway!

Ha, ha! :) ...Or like a Christmas tree. :) This still of the moons takes me back to the opening scene to "Duel at Devlan" and the transformation sequence from the He-Man episode, "Into The Abyss!"
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

It's a bit 4th of July-ish, to be sure, but I think it's also one beautifully striking piece of art!
