So, incase you don't know about it, there's a new cartoon out on Disney called Star vs. the Forces of Evil.
So, a little bit about this show. Star Butterfly, princess of some alternate dimension, just turned 14. This means that she gets the family heirloom/royal scepter/magical girl wand-desu(TM).
Anybody that's watched this show for, say 4-5 seconds, will understand that giving Star an EXTRAORDINARY MAGICAL DEVICE OF ULTIMATE POWER is probably not a good, sane, idea.
Anywho, things happen and she is sent somewhere less magical, namely Earth. (Just like a certain Starswirl the Bearded) She is instructed to stay with an Earth family and craziness ensues.
First of all, I love me some cartoons and this is definitely one you should check out. My only qualm is the pacing. It's really freakin fast! Now, I realize that it's a series with ~15 minute episodes, and that it's likely tailored for your typical American child that can't stay focused on a single thing for more than 3 seconds but given the first episode(s), it feels like it's dumping slapstick and zaniness on you and completely glossing over what I believe would be great character development.
Look at Steven Universe, it's typically 15 minute episodes but there's still depth in the characters. You can relate to them. So far in Star, it feels like you don't have time to relate with the characters.
BUT DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER or a cartoon/anime/tv series by its first episode. I really, really, want to love this show (Star is a really great character) but....I don't know. We'll see.
I'd post a link to the episode but Disney scares me. Besides, learning how to Google things is an important life skill!
If you've seen Star vs. the Forces of Evil, let me know what you thought about it in the comments!
