Soy Luna is a well-diversified series. It has a great story, mixing drama, romance, comedy and lots of music!
The main focus of the series is in the life of the protagonist, Luna Valente, in her passion for skating during the first season, and in her investigation for her true identity in Season Two. The third season will focus on how everything she has discovered will affect her and change her.
The first season is good, with great moments and stories full of romance, sport and music, but taking away the main characters, little development is seen for others, making them one-dimensional characters.
In the second season, we see something different, the series continues to be fun and really good, but the focus on romance increases a lot, often making the episodes tiring with all the love triangles, and even the protagonist receives little development and good material, reusing stories from Season One, making her annoying, causing the villains, Ámbar and Sharon, to shine more than all the others, taking into account that on several occasions their stories were more interesting than any other.
So I must say that the great trump of the series, for me, are the villains; Sharon Benson (brilliantly interpreted by Lucila Gandolfo) and, mainly, Ámbar Smith (played by Valentina Zenere, who in my opinion is by far the best actress in the cast), a strong character that on several occasions gives life to the series, giving a unique perspective to the plot, she brings something very different from what we are used to see in series of the genre, after all she is also a victim... In Season Two one of hers storylines is better than any of the protagonist!
The interaction between the villains is incredible, their development, mostly on Season Two, is something I would never dream of seeing in a Disney series, for sure they are the best part of the series.
At the same time, the great "problem" of the series, is the fact that the protagonist (and several other characters), Luna Valente, is very similar to what we are already used to see in the genre, very cliché... she is the "best" in everything, always the winner, seems to have no flaws... this would not be a problem if the character was very well developed, which does not happen after a certain point.
Everyone should watch and judge the series for themselves, after all it's a great series, which impressed me in many episodes (1x73, 1x80, 2x05, 2x11, 2x16, 2x51, 2x52, 2x76, 2x79, 2x80... these are just some of the episodes that I rewatched lots of times), especially considering that this is a Disney series made for the younger audience.
