VS. THE FORCES OF EVIL
Created by Daron Nefcy,
Star vs. the Forces of Evil centered on the adventures of Star Butterfly
(Eden Sher), the trouble-making heir to the royal throne of the dimension of Mewni. On her 14th
birthday, she inherited her family’s magic
wand, with which she accidentally set fire to the castle. Her parents decided
to send her to Earth as a foreign exchange student so that she could safely
(for them) practice her magic. She befriended and took up residence with human
boy Marco Diaz (Adam McArthur) and his family in a fictional suburb
of Los Angeles and attended Echo
Creek Academy with him. Of course, misadventures followed as her spells
often materialized in unplanned ways and she gained a pair of dimensional
scissors that allowed her to whisk Marco away to a variety of worlds. Not to
mention there were evil doers who would have loved to get their hands on her
wand and Magic
Instruction Book, aka the Book of Spells, to conquer her kingdom.

Those evil doers took on several
forms. The initial antagonist was Ludo Avarius (Alan Tudyk), a diminutive
bird-like being whose terrible childhood gave him a need to prove his worth and
sought Star’s wand to conquer the universe. Because his army of
Monsters was incompetent, he often hired Toffee (Michael C. Hall),
a humanoid lizard with regenerative abilities that once led an army against
Mewni and murdered Star’s grandmother. Toffee would eventually usurp Ludo and
kick him out of his own castle, but Ludo made a comeback with new minions in
the form of a bald
eagle and giant spider
(both Dee Bradley Baker). Miss Heinous
(Jessica Walter) was a Mewman-Monster hybrid who ran St.
Olga’s Reform School for Wayward Princesses, which was dedicated to beating
all rebelliousness out of princesses and make them conform to expected norms,
along with her robot assistant, Gemini (Jeff Bennett).
Star and Marco (disguised as a princess) eventually deposed her and got her
kicked out of the school. Heinous would come to discover her real name was
Meteora Butterfly and she was the legitimate heir to the Mewni throne; having
been switched out with peasant girl Festivia
because of her bloodline. Mina Loveberry (Amy Sedaris) was a Mewman warrior
that Star idolized and wanted to be like before she attempted to conquer the
Earth in disgust of America’s democracy. Mina was made a magic-resistant super
soldier by former queen Solaria
(Gemma Whelan) and was dedicated to eradicating all Monsters on Mewni.
|Concept art of Star.
Nefcy created the initial pitch for Star
for Cartoon Network’s
Cartoonstitute, an initiative created by Cartoon Network
Sorcher and led by Rob Renzetti
McCracken that would have showcased animated shorts created
without the input of executives and focus testing; similar to The Cartoon
Cartoon Show/What a Cartoon!
Show over a decade earlier.
This version saw Star as a regular 4th grade girl who believed herself
to be a magical girl like Sailor
Moon and Marco (named Sol) as
a boy who was obsessed with Dragon Ball Z and
martial arts. The two of them would have been enemies instead of friends, and
Star would have used the force of her determination to solve problems. Nefcy
was heavily influenced by her love of anime, and a desire to see the kinds of
characters she liked from them on American television. However, Cartoon Network
had a stance against girl shows and passed on her idea. Nefcy continued to work
on and refine the idea in between making other shorts, graduating from CalArts, and working at Warner Bros.,
and eventually Disney.
It was while at Disney that she pitched her revised version of Star and was
given the greenlight to develop a show. However, it was suggested that she age
Star up to a teenager and give her actual magical powers, requiring a complete
overhaul of her concept on the fly. As a result, her eventual pitch to Vice
President of Disney
Television Animation Eric Coleman
flopped. But, after a bit of time mulling over the new concept and developing
new ideas, she got a chance to pitch the show again and it was finally given
the go ahead in 2013 with Jordana
Arkin and Dave Wasson overseeing
|Star and Marco ready for all challengers.
Nefcy wanted Star to exhibit and
maintain her individuality; fighting against the “perfect princess” her parents
wanted her to be. She also downplayed the significance of high school on the
lives of the teenagers, choosing not to make it a central focus but just
another location. Nefcy removed the trope of having Star try and pass as a
normal human by hiding her magical powers—instead, everyone was aware of them
and generally cool with it (unless, of course, they were on the receiving end
of one of her spells gone wrong). Nefcy stated that Star was very much like
her. To balance out the hyperactive Star, Marco was made her straight man,
although he had his own quirks such as looking for anything that could help him
shake his “safe” image. McArthur portrayed him as smart and thoughtful while
not really leaning into his being nerdy or unlikeable. Marco was largely based
on Nefcy’s husband, filmmaker Bobby Miller
(who provided some voices for the series).
|The Butterfly kingdom on Mewni.
Star vs. the Forces of Evil was
only the second series to be created for Disney Television Animation by
a woman, the first being Sue Rose’s Pepper
Ann 17 years prior, and the third series overall following Doc McStuffins from Chris Nee. It was set to premier
Channel in the fall of 2014 but ended up debuting on January
18, 2015 before moving to Disney XD
in March as part of Disney’s restructuring to make XD their cartoon-exclusive
channel. Prior to its release, the title sequence was shown at San Diego Comic-Con
2014 during a Gravity
Falls panel in order to build
up hype for the show. And it worked, as a leaked viral recording of the intro
started a wave of fans and fan art. Disney sitcom stars Olivia Holt
Berglund also participated in promoting the series; with Holt
dressing up as Star in a series of short videos
shown on the network and Berglund occasionally joining in.
The result was that Star’s debut was the highest in Disney XD’s history,
drawing in 1.2 million viewers on average, with the initial Disney Channel
airing having 2.33 million. Disney quickly greenlit a second season and then a
third following the first season’s conclusion. A final fourth season was
greenlit during the transition to season three. Season four saw the show move
over to Disney Channel for its initial broadcasts, followed shortly after by
re-airings on Disney XD.
|Star faces down Ludo.
Nefcy stated that the show was
storyboard driven, with the storyboarders taking a two-page outline and turning
it into a full script. These storytellers were comprised of Nefcy, Arkin,
Mullen (who also directed), Ian Wasseluk,
(also a director and producer), Lane
(also a director and supervising producer), Mike Yank,
(another director), Christofer
Cash, Tyler Chen
(director also), Jushtin Lee,
Evon Freeman, Le Tang, Giancarlo Volpe (director,
too), Katie Crown, John Mathot, Amy Higgins, John Infantino, Brett Varon (director), Amalia Levari, Aleth Romanillos, Sabrina Cotugno, Amelia Lorenz (both eventual
directors), Annisa Adjani, Mark Ackland, Riccardo Durante, Zach Marcus, Cassie Zwart, Sarah Oleksyk, Eric Acosta, Robert Snow, Christian Magalhaes, Bryan Caselli, Chris Walsh, Gina Gress, Nicolette Wood, Casey Crowe, Charlotte Jackson, Madeleine Flores, Kenny Pittenger, and Matthew Yang. Each episode was
comprised of two 11-minutes segments aired together to form a half-hour, with a
few full half-hour episodes here and there--particularly the season finales.
During the second season, some segments were broadcast as individual episodes.
A telefilm, The Battle for Mewni, led the transition from the second to
third season and was later broken up into the first seven episodes of season
three. The characters were designed by Rachelle
Reyes, Becky Dreistadt, Stephanie Ramirez, Devin Taylor, Cheyenne Curtis, Lynn Wang, Jenny Goldberg, Angela Mueller and Adam Rosette. Animation duties for the
first season were handled by Mercury
Filmworks and Toon City Animation,
then moved to Rough Draft Korea
and Sugarcube for the remainder.
The series’ theme was composed by Brad Breeck,
with Nefcy, Ego Plum and Brian H. Kim doing the ending themes
performed by Shen for the first two seasons and Agnes Shin for the last two.
|Star takes the Diaz family to another dimension.
The first two seasons took place
primarily on Earth, centering on Star’s trying to acclimate to human culture
while mastering her magic. There was also the ongoing will they/won’t they
relationship subplot between her and Marco. Earth characters included Marco’s
(Artt Butler) and Angie (Nia Vardalos), who thought Star
would be a good influence on Marco and were very supportive of him; Ferguson
O’durguson (Nate Torrence)
Dolittle (Matt Chapman),
Marco’s best friends; Jackie Lynn Thomas (Grey Griffin), Marco’s long-time
crush and eventual girlfriend, although ultimately she ended up in a
relationship with a French girl named Chloé (Jessica Paré) making her the
first female Disney character in a same-sex relationship; Principal
Skeeves (Bennett), the principal of Echo Creek Academy who was very
emotional and often acted more like a student than the principal; Miss
Skullnick (Dee Dee Rescher), Star and Marco’s homeroom math teacher that
accidentally gets turned into a troll; Sensei
Brantley (Nick Swardson), an
instructor at the strip mall karate dojo where Marco trained who learned all
his karate from instructional videos; Oskar
Greason (Jon Heder),
Star’s initial crush at school who dropped out of school and lived in his car,
playing keytar; Jeremy
Birnbaum (Joshua Rush),
a spoiled rich kid whose parents sponsored the dojo and was Marco’s rival;
Janna Ordonia (Abby Elliott), a mysterious student that hung out with Star and
Marco with an interest in the occult; StarFan13
(Nefcy), Star’s biggest fan who dressed like her and tried to mimic her as much
as possible; and Brittney
Wong (Minae Noji), the
spoiled head cheerleader that was constantly annoyed by Star’s antics.
Glossaryck (a play on “glossary”, voiced by Jeffrey Tambor & Keith David)
was Star’s Magic guide that dwelled within her spell book and trained her in
the use of spells; however, he was bound to the book and served whoever possessed
it. Eventually, the Diaz family was expanded when Marco gained a sister: Mariposa
(Spanish for “butterfly”).
|Moon and River Butterfly.
The last two seasons moved primarily
to Mewni, where the Butterfly family history and history of Mewni was explored,
as well as who really was meant to rule the kingdom. Marco followed Star and
served as her squire, with even further complications to their romance
developing. The ongoing subplot however dealt with the discrimination Monsters
faced from Mewmans and the destructive lengths some would go to to eliminate
them rather than understand them. Mewni characters (some of which had crossed
over to Earth for visits previously) included Star’s parents, Moon (Griffin,
with Katie Driver portraying
her younger self), whose experiences in battle against Toffee and utilizing
dark magic made her overprotective of Star, and River (Tudyk, with Ashbourne Serkis as his younger
self), a member of the Johansen
family that were Viking-like barbarians fond of the outdoors; Pony Head (Jenny
Slate), a floating unicorn head, fellow princess and attendee of St. Olga’s
that was Star’s best friend and initially jealous of her relationship with
Marco; Tom Lucitor (Rider Strong), a hot-headed three-eyed demon that was
Star’s ex-boyfriend who eventually rekindled his romance with her; Buff Frog
(Fred Tatasciore using a Russian accent), an anthropomorphic frog that
initially served as Ludo’s spy but came to befriend Star and Marco and settled
down with his family; Kelly (Dana Davis), a Woolett and old
friend of Star’s whose turquoise hair could cover her entire body and initially
dated a diminutive hairy creature that lived on top of her hair named Tad (Greg Cipes); Eclipsa Butterfly
(Esmé Blanco), the former queen of Mewni and mother of Meteora who was imprisoned
for using dark magic and eloping with a Monster, Globgor (Jamie Camil), but was
eventually freed by Moon in exchange for helping to defeat Toffee; and the Magic
High Commission, a group of powerful beings that guarded magic in the
universe comprised of Moon, Hekapoo (Zosia Mamet), who created the dimensional
scissors and could duplicate herself, Omnitraxus
Prime (Carl Weathers),
manipulator of space and time, Lekmet (Baker),
a goat-headed demon Glossaryck created, and Rhombulus (Kevin Michael Richardson), who
served as an enforcer that could encase prisoners in unbreakable crystal.
|Love-crossed: Marco with Jackie, Star with Tom.
Disney decided to let the series end
with the fourth season. During its run, it racked up numerous awards and
nominations, including the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, BTVA Voice Acting Awards (of
which it won three), the Annie Awards, a
Daytime Emmy Award (which it won), and a Kids’ Choice Awards Mexico. Despite
bringing almost everything to a conclusion, Nefcy left the ending a bit open in
the hopes of someday getting to revisit the world with another project, as well
as leave fans something to build off with their art and fanfiction.
|Glossaryck and the spell book's forbidden chapter.
Several video games based on the
series were released to the Disney XD website and for download to mobile
devices. 2015 introduced Creature Capture, a
tile-matching puzzle game, and Star vs. the Dungeon of Evil,
an action-adventure game that saw Star and Marco captured by Ludo and
having to escape his castle. Quest Buy Rush was
made available in 2016 and was an endless runner platforming game featuring
Star going through Quest
Buy (an allusion to Best Buy), a
maze-like retail store featured on the show. Star and Marco were also playable
characters in the platforming puzzle game Hero Trip, which
featured characters from various Disney XD shows.

Joe Books published four of
a planned eight-issue comic series beginning in 2016. Star vs, the
Forces of Evil: Deep Trouble was written by Marcus and illustrated by Taylor.
It was cancelled due to poor sales. The released issues were later collected into
paperback. Joe Books also released a Cinestory
Comic of the first episode which utilized stills rather
than original art. A second
Cinestory Comic was released in 2019 based on
“Starcrushed”. Disney Press released Star
and Marco’s Guide to Mastering Every Dimension in
early 2017, a “guide to life” book written by Marco, Star and Pony Head
(but really by Amber Benson,
Bisignano, Taylor and Cindy
Plourde). A Stump Day Edition with additional content was set to
release that September but was pushed back to October. Benson also wrote The
Magic Book of Spells in 2018 with Nefcy,
which was a real-life reproduction of Star’s spell book. Funko would release Star, Marco, Tom and Ludo
of their Pops! line in late 2018, early 2019. Butterfly Mode Star would
be made exclusive to Hot Topic stores.
Toy company PhatMojo would debut a Star
plush as a Comic-Con exclusive in 2018, then made it available for retail
later that year. Other products included additional plushes,
and more. Although the series has not yet been released to home video, it has
been made available for streaming on Amazon
Prime Video and on Disney+.
