In two weeks, Prime Video will send sparks flying as its new series “The Power” makes its three-episode debut on the streamer. Based on Naomi Alderman’s award-winning novel, the show focuses on a group of teenage girls who suddenly gain the power of electrocution. Ahead of the premiere on March 31, Prime Video has shared a new sneak peek at the series. Similar to Alderman’s novel, “The Power” will focus on women in power not just through their literal, newfound electrocution skills, but also through a broader feminist lens. As showcased through the opening sequence and earlier trailers, the series gives its characters the means to find their inner power, giving them the opportunity to wreak havoc on a world stacked against them and to realize they are more than what they initially believe about themselves — whether they feel unseen, lonely, weak, or more. “The Power” premieres with its first three episodes Friday, March 31 on Prime Video. New episodes will release weekly each Friday leading up to the season finale on May 12. Watch the opening sequence in the video archive.

According to Variety, Lana Condor, Toni Collette and Jane Fonda are playing a family of sea monster queens in DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming film “Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken.” Condor voices Ruby, “a shy teenager who discovers that she’s part of a legendary royal lineage of mythical sea krakens and that her destiny, in the depths of the oceans, is bigger than she ever dreamed.” Collette plays her mother, who forbade Ruby from ever stepping foot in the water, and Fonda is her grandmother, from whom Ruby is destined to inherit the throne of the kraken queens. The cast includes Colman Domingo as Ruby’s dad, Sam Richardson as her uncle and Blue Chapman as her little brother, plus Will Forte, Nicole Byer. Liza Koshy, Ramona Young, Eduardo Franco and Echo Kellum. “Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken” releases in theaters on June 30. It’s directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Kirk DeMicco (“Vivo,” “The Croods”) with Faryn Pearl as co-director. Kelly Cooney Cilella produced, and Stephanie Economou wrote the score.
Sweet, awkward 16-year-old Ruby Gillman is desperate to fit in at Oceanside High, but she mostly just feels invisible. She’s math-tutoring her skater-boy crush (Jaboukie Young-White), who only seems to admire her for her fractals, and she’s prevented from hanging out with the cool kids at the beach because her over-protective supermom has forbade Ruby from ever getting in the water. But when she breaks her mom’s #1 rule, Ruby will discover that she is a direct descendant of the warrior Kraken queens and is destined to inherit the throne from her commanding grandmother, the Warrior Queen of the Seven Seas. The Kraken are sworn to protect the oceans of the world against the vain, power-hungry mermaids who have been battling with the Kraken for eons. There’s one major, and immediate, problem with that: The school’s beautiful, popular new girl, Chelsea (Annie Murphy) just happens to be a mermaid. Ruby will ultimately need to embrace who she is and go big to protect those she loves most.
