well, I'm sure some elements of "What's Goin' on" will be in there. main thing is that most of the character beats they could give him are already taken up by Bow and Sea HawkIf they made adorable He-Man for She-Ra, I assume he'd be best done as Adam first, He-Man second.
I'm not at all sure what He-Man would bring to the current She-Ra series, to be honest, in terms of the narrative and thematic beats that are driving the Princesses of Power storyline, but they have enough goodwill from me to withhold judgement should such a thing come to pass.
Family has been a big theme for She-Ra and they have made Adora's origin an explicit plot point. He-Man can mean not just Adam but King Randor and Queen Marlena... or even Dare (Adam and Teela's son in the Classics toyline and an unfilmed sequel series concept) although that would probably require time travel. They are a logical endpoint of Adora's personal arc. Some foreshadowing, references, cameos, etc might be appropriate to build to that. I think She-Ra is more likely to do more with that family dynamic than the new He-Man.If He-man brings anything to She-ra, it'll do with her personal storyline rather than the bigger Eteria/Princesses story.
Sure they do tell us this. After all they want it to be a surprise when they unleash a crossover episode on their viewers.....I've read that the two shows won't be connected.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a little confused as well with them doing this as it certainly seems something that would be perfect for a cross over, but on the other side I don't have trouble seeing a Kevin Smith series being compatible with the She-Ra series.Sure they do tell us this.

Those are two linked properties. That run both on Netflix. They can tell me a lot of things but not that they won't capitalize on that.
Maybe it could go wacky and use OG SheRa?I don’t think Smith’s show sounds like it’ll be a good crossover. The tones just sound wildly divergent. That, and the wildly different art styles will make a direct crossover very difficult.
Here’s my prediction: Adora will eventually go through a portal. She’ll come back crying, tell everybody she met her parents and her brother, etc., but we won’t actually see it.
Then the showrunners will sit back and let the howling of the fans convince Netflix and Hasbro to get over it and to just let He-Man appear in both shows because audiences are smart and can handle seeing two different versions of a character at once. Plus, the Smith thing sounds like a limited series, and Smith is a busy guy- it might not hurt to have another version ready to step up.
Oh! You know I usually hate it when shows mangle cannon... but I kinda like that idea. Just replace He-Man with Adora’s twin sister.Maybe it could go wacky and use OG SheRa?
