Star vs. the Forces of Evil is an animated television show aired in January 18, 2015 and ended on May 19, 2019. It airs on Disney Channel and Disney XD.

Plot

Star Butterfly, the 14 year-old princess of the dimension of Mewni inherits her family's magic wand as part of her family's tradition. However her reckless nature forces her parents to send her away to our dimension to help her train. She enrolls in high school and befriends a 14-year old karate student named Marco Diaz and becomes his host sister. However, an evil, yet incompetent, monster named Ludo seeks Star's wand for ultimate power while an even greater evil in the form of Toffee seeks his missing finger.

Why It Rocks

  1. The animation is very fluid from the start, then changed to hand-drawn animation.
  2. Very likable characters.
  3. Well written story with comedy and action.
  4. Heavily inspired (or the tamed deconstruction of that genre) by the magical girl genre such as Sailor Moon.
  5. Some subtle dark fantastical comedy and funny moments.
  6. Good character designs.
  7. Heroic theme song.
  8. Sorta had a perfect introduction, as to explain who the characters are very well (But it gets good as the series continues).
  9. Star and Marco are very cute together and have a pretty good chemistry.

Bad Qualities

  1. While most dirty jokes are subtle, the episode, Mr. Candle Cares, takes it way too far.
  2. Season 4 was extremely rushed because it only aired for 2 months and lasted for 21 episodes.
  3. The show arguably went downhill after Season 2, as the show started to focus too much on the romance drama, the fantastical racism against monsters in Mewni became the series’ new main plot just suddenly, a bit right after Toffee’s death, without building up too much from the previous two seasons, and each episode had too many writers working on it, result few both old and new ideas becoming cut and mostly never used again, as pre-established in the first two seasons, as a result.
    • The four-part series finale, including the final epsiode, Cleaved is a bit rushed, as it just goes on too fast of Star destroying the magic, all due (also being a bad plot twist, as well) of her mother, Moon, is somehow literally can't let go of what Eclipsa did on her from the final couple Season 3 episodes, despite knowing that Eclipsa's daughter–then-now called by from her–Meteora (formerly Miss Heinous), was that giant monster, attacking Mewni; but basically ignores the consequences of destroying the magic, off-screen. Also, the ending comes out of nowhere, and treating it as a happy ending somehow.

Trivia

  • The show was originally pitched to Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon before being pitched to Disney.
