I don't own Disney XD, so I have to watch when the Disney Channel airs their animated shows, which is rare. I finally looked and found a cartoon that I have talked about all the time, but only saw clips from and was finally able to see. That show is "Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil"! This show tells the story of a princess named Star from another dimension living with a boy named Marco. Her supernatural enemies often follow her through Earth. It's no coincidence that I became a huge fan of this show after "Gravity Falls" ended. Yeah, look at my avatar. Anyway, in some ways this show actually improves over GF. While GF is still a better show overall, this is worth checking out.
The animation in this show is better. It is simply amazing and the best I have ever seen in a Disney cartoon. The colors are absolutely gorgeous and the movements and facial expressions are wonderful. Another thing is that this show has much better romance. Whereas GF and other shows like "Adventure Time!" have romance that doesn't go anywhere, this show has it wonderfully relevant to the plot. Before this show even started, people wanted Star and Marco to get together. It was even already established that they had love interests, but as the show went on, everyone knew Star had a crush on Marco. In "Starcrushed" she finally revealed it to everybody! Star is one of the best modern cartoon stars because of how powerful she is. She's a magic princess who knows how to use her wand and fight all sorts of creatures.
Marco is great too. It's not just because Marco is very entertaining, but because he was already a strong fighter in the series. Right from the get go, he helps Star fight. Normally, a character like that would have to go through a lot to be that powerful. I really feel for this guy and want him to succeed which makes it all the more painful when he fails. Star can join the ranks of characters like Mabel and Pinkie Pie for great happy girls. The other characters are wonderful too.
There's Tom, Star's ex, who is a demon. She has some luck picking boys, huh? Flying Princess Pony Head is, well, a flying princess pony head who talks in this hilarious voice. Will they ever do a Godfather joke with her? Marco is already dating this girl named Jackie. They could have just had Jackie be this shallow girl who only existed to be a rival for Star, but instead they made her very likable and well developed. You simply love all of these unique characters. I started out just watching clips and was immediately hooked. It helps that the two lead characters make one of the best couples ever! Don't miss this one! ****
