Star Vs The Forces Of Evil Promo Analysis

Well Star vs The Forces Of Evil is going to have a 2 hour movie special on July 16th and I can not wait I am just so excited by the prospect of this. The short promo appears to jammed packed with flashbacks possibly telling us more of Queen Moon and Toffee’s past along with the darkest spell being cast. We will hopefully have most of our questions answered but before that happens let me give you a run down on what is happening in this promo.

As we delve into the first scene we are hit by a flashback to the great monster massacre. How do I know this well I will tell you near the end. There is a foot crushing a high wall indicating a siege as there appears to be no people around and this appears to be Mewni this may possibly be a trap for the monster because of the missing citizens as well as soilders.

We instantly cut to the wand being lit green and with a flash to the star shard lighting up that has been embedded into Toffees hand which explains the aesthetic design of the wand and how he started to grow out of it. The scenery surrounding the wand at this point is the same setting of Ludos old castle so we are going to have an introduction of how the wand came into being as originally the shard was buried alone under the ruble after “Storm The Castle.”

What comes up next is possibly a flashback to when Ludo first got the wand as in the episode “Star Crushed,” Queen Moon sends most of the rats away while only a few remained to be crystalized and Hecaboo opens a portal and sends the bird and spider to a different dimension but due to it being a part of Ludo’s hand which happened during “Star Crushed.” Meaning Toffee tried to take over with his hand before and failed or he went back into the shard so he could trap the High Council.

Ludo/Toffee who is standing just outside of Menwni as we can see the castle in the background. The area reflects a retreated army and it appears the monster temple has somehow blown up as the pillars vaguely resemble the same ones that were in the temple. With the colourful explosion that lands a few feet from away from him. With the bright visuals and from past colour schemes from “Storm The Castle.” My notion is that this can only be Star ready for a showdown with Ludo/Toffee.

We cut to someone shaking hands with a muddied creature and who looks a lot like Queen Moon being twisted by the darkness. At first I didn’t think this was Moon but after a bit of inspection I found a few tells that this in fact her. When the camera pans upward we get a very glimpse of armour which is the same one she wears when she went into battle, along with her cheek marks although only half is shown it’s clear this is Queen Moon who is being swallowed by the darkness in a flashback sequence.

Let’s go back to the scene I skipped where the darkest spell is cast and yes this is it. In Queen Moons tapestry we see thick ominous deathly clouds that encompass the wand and when we inspect the scene the same clouds are surrounding it. Many of you did not believe this was Queen Moon holding the wand because of the subtle details that do not appear when we first see it, well there is a reason for this. As we learn in episode “Monster Claws.” When a person changes mentally so does the wand meaning we are seeing an event not in the past.

All flashback scenes have a faded look, probably to exaggerate the past but when we focus onto Queen Moons wand it doesn’t have that effect, it’s clear. This means this scene is happening now in the present, Queen Moon will obtain the wand again and recast the darkest spell.

And the words the Toffee speaks right at the end “Have you learnt nothing.” Has a deeper meaning than any of us previously have come to know we coupled with this imagery.

From this short video I have grasped so many wonderful ideas of where this movie will take us and I for one cannot wait to see these ideas in action.
