Here's my new Honest Trailer for Star vs. The Forces of Evil slightly changed. It's not quite final yet.
From a cartoon artist who saw Sailor Moon as a kid (Daron Nefcy) and the girl who plays Sue Heck from the Middle (Eden Sher) comes a brand new Disney XD cartoon series about a magical princess from another dimension that originally had a first-episode preview on Disney Channel, but inexplicably moved to Disney XD...Star vs. The Forces of Evil!
Inspired by a woman who grew up watching Sailor Moon as a kid and really wanted to have magical powers like the ones on the show, she liked drawing Star Butterfly in college since 2008 and created a cartoon series combining her own experience with that character...but didn't write the first episode. She originally came up with the idea of having Star be a girl so crazy, she only thought she was a magical princess from another dimension...which immediately got changed because it was too intense, even for Gravity Falls.
Meet Star Butterfly, a cute butterfly princess whose personality is one part Sue Heck... Star Butterfly: I like to have fun! And I'm about to have a whole lot more because today is my 14th birthday! ...and one part Mabel Pines. Star Butterfly: I love puppies! She also sounds just like Sue and has blush sticker on her cheeks just like Mabel's, except that they're shaped like hearts instead of circles, [Scene cuts to the blush sticker on Star's cheeks changing to hourglasses] and they change appearance depending on her mood. She got sent to Earth, the only dimension that doesn't seem to have magic dimensional hole-cutting scissors, where there's no other magic to get in the way of her learning to use her wand on her own (except for light switches, water fountains, and the Banagic Wand), because she conjured a rainbow on fire. But that won't stop her from making one more rainbow on fire in the same episode. Seriously, her parents should have taught her how to use that wand properly before they sent her to Earth. Watch her use magic for things like...changing the football field, changing her hairstyle, changing Marco's arm, changing Marco's house, changing her headband, and fighting off Ludo and his army of monsters who want to steal her wand!
Meet Star Butterfly's earth companion Marco Diaz, a normal kid with a reputation for being the safest kid in school after wearing a helmet in the gym shower... Marco: You wear a helmet in the gym shower one time and you're labeled for life. ...and protecting everyone from the little dangers in life like a loose tile, an open locker door and broken glass. But he's actually a misunderstood bad boy... Marco: I'm a misunderstood bad boy! [Scene cuts to Marco's KarateKon 2012 shirt from Cheer Up Star] ...who's been learning karate for at least 3 years. Star Butterfly: You can fight? Marco: It's called karate!
Journey to the kingdom of Mewni, the alternate dimension kingdom where Star comes from that combines Mewni with certain earth terms, like Mewmans... Star Butterfly: And the Mewmans won! ...who are part human and part butterfly, Mewberty... Star: I think I'm going through Mewberty. ...a brief transformation from human to butterfly before becoming a human again that doesn't make you increase in body hair, change your voice or develop breasts afterwards, but instead gives you pointless additional butterfly wings that can't be used to fly... [scene cuts to freeze frame of Star jumping into the dimensional portal zooming in on her back not covered by her long hair] that she seems to lose by the next episode, and Mewnipendence Day! Star: Uh, it's the 37th of Grovnok. Mewnipendence Day? Mewni has a month called Grovnok? I'd really like to know how their calendar works. It's a backwards kingdom that might have everyone's last names be Butterfly... Star: [to Marco] These are your parents? I just assumed everyone on Earth had the last name Diaz. ...doesn't seem to give tests on anything,... Marco Diaz: You don't have tests on Mewni? ...has absolutely no use for flushing toilets... Star's dad: Flush? What's a flush? ...and also has overkill golf clubs! Star's dad: This is a club? There's one thing we got better on Mewni. Tally-ho! [Star's dad hits the golf ball with a giant metal club with a bull's face on the end of it and the ball makes a frog statue next to the golf course fall over] ...and it's ruled by Star's parents, the worst kingdom rulers ever, who live as high in the clouds as possible... Marco's mom: Is this where you grew up? Star: No. I live there. Oh, higher. Higher! ...while forcing the rest of the kingdom to live in poverty (much like the Capitol and the Districts from the Hunger Games),...give their daughter a wand that magically changes appearance depending on who owns it for her 14th birthday that she's not ready to use yet... Star's mom and dad: She can't handle it. ...then send her to Earth without any kind of training to help her get ready, except for a completely disorganized spellbook... Marco: What?! This whole time you had an instruction book? Star: Yep, whenever a previous owner of the wand mastered a spell, they scribbled it down in here. [coughs] But it's a complete disorganized mess. ...where spells are randomly written down once they have been mastered after many tries... Star: Returnio, Armus, Normalritecus! [plant catches fire] Returnius, Armius, Normalrinny! [plant explodes] Returnio, Armius, Normalrino! [arm grows out of plant and gives Star a thumbs up] ...and a glossary guy who isn't very helpful... Glossaryck: This book is not for the likes of you! Magical princesses only! Marco: This isn't for me! I'm trying to find a spell for Star! ...and claim that their ancestors were the first inhabitants of Mewni and raised an army to get rid of the monsters, until it later turns out that the much weaker monsters were there first. No wonder Ludo and the monsters of today are so desparate to get Star's wand!
Watch as Star and Marco fight against the Forces of Evil, which consist of Ludo and his incompetent minions, like this lobster guy who can't steal Star's wand properly,... Lobster Claws: Booyah! I got it! I got it! What the [gasping] ...these siamese twins who tell Star Ludo's entire plan to steal her wand... Unnamed two-headed monster: Fortune cookies aren't real. It was all a trap so Ludo can steal your wand. ...this buff frog guy who was such a horrible spy that he got replaced with this giant eye-shaped spy camera with less eyes than him... Buff Frog: Toffee replaced me with an electronic eye. Ludo: It is the most efficient way to spy on your enemies. Buff Frog: But Ludo, this eye only has one eye. My face has two. That's twice the number of eyes. ...and the whole army in general who doesn't use their body weight to their advantage when they fight Star and Marco. Ludo: How are you losing? You guys have, like, 200 pounds on her! [Scene cuts to everyone going back into a dimensional portal after being defeated by Star and Marco] Ludo: You see, you morons?! This is what happens when you don't work out! Your muscles are like pudding. I agree with what Ludo just said. Seriously, these guys should work out more!
See Eden Sher rise to stardom (yes pun intended) [Scene cuts to Stuck to show Caterpillar Girl on a scooter] from the nameless caterpillar girl... [Scene cuts to The Middle episode The Trip where everyone sings Happy Birthday to Sue but forgets her name] ...to the unpopular middle child whose name no one in school remembers [Scene cuts to Star vs. The Forces of Evil episode Matchmaker where everyone greets Star] ...to the popular butterfly girl whose name everyone in school remembers! [Scene cuts to The Middle episode The Graduate where everyone passes around Sue's yearbook and signs it before giving it to her] And this wasn't too long before everyone finally succeeded to recognize Sue's accomplishments in the Season 6 finale of The Middle.
Be amazed as Star turns small creatues giant who sometimes carry people away and makes magic things happen with whatever words she can think of! Star: Sparkle Glitter Bomb Expand! Mystic Room Suck Transform! Rainbow Fist Punch! Jelly Bean Hallucination Mist! Mega-Narwhal Blast! And that was just the first episode! There's more of this.
Watch as Star and Marco work together to fight Ludo's army and see how they break Star's other best friend Magic Princess Pony Head out of the reform school/prison/rehabilitation center they've always feared...St. Olga's Reform School for Wayward Princesses! Marco: It's not criminal to be an individual! Pixie: It's not criminal to be an individual! All the princesses: It's not criminal to be an individual! And occasionally take on some other enemies from Earth, like Jeremy Birnbaum, Charlie Booth, Brittany Wong, and these pirate-costumed waiters who Star mistook for actual pirates.

So Star accidentally turns her teacher Miss Skullnick into a troll, but Lightning Change Back doesn't work to reverse that like any other magic words she thinks of? Maybe Lightning wasn't the right word. And was Man-Magnet Lovestorm originally designed for trolls to begin with? Daron Nefcy and Eden Sher, if you're watching this, you really need to do something about that and fix the problem. Marco: You just zapped us back to the house! Star: Yeah. I wish I knew how I did that. Me too, Star. Seriously, you should really look into this minor but still confusing inconsistency.
Say "I should be accepted into Spanish Club because I am breasts."
Say "I had reduced inhibitions. I twerked."
Say "Honey, where are my pants?"
Say "Gonna get a little weird, gonna get a little wild. I ain't from round here, I'm from another dimension!"
Say "It's not criminal to be an individual!"
