The Power, The Passion - Xena's 17th Birthday! Hail The Warrior Princess!

xe17Today (in the US) is Xena's 17th Birthday - can you believe it? This show that has changed so many lives; from the actors / producers / crew to the fans has created something so unique, so special. It has created The Xenaverse - go over to the AUSXIP Charity Site to see the generosity, the love, the downright brilliance that is the Xenaverse in action. The Xenaverse has raised over 15 MILLION dollars for various charities in the last 17 years. What an amazing, incredible generosity of spirit this show has produced.

It is because of Xena: Warrior Princess we have all come together. It is because of Rob Tapert's vision, the brilliance of Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor who created the roles we fell in love with. We have a community that no only has grown to be such a force for good but it brings in new fans every day. It without a doubt the best show ever made; I know of no other that has impacted the lives of so many.

THE POWER, THE PASSION, THEIR COURAGE CHANGED OUR WORLD! Hail The Warrior Princess and Her Bard and the Xenaverse!

After 17 years this opening theme to my favourite show of all time still gives me a thrill

"In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power. The passion. The danger. Her courage will change the world."
