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.

Steven Universe: Wanted Promo Analysis

Hi this is Weird here and I decided to write an analysis of the Steven Universe promo Wanted I known that others have done similar but I thought I would give you my view on what I saw and maybe I can make you see my way to. I won’t be covering the scenes from Stuck Together as the episode has already debut, but that’s enough of an introduction let’s dive in shall we.

Lars is sweating bullets as he’s scanned by the roaming eye but nothing happens to him only Steven, who’s gem glows. The few scene’s I saw with the same background had Lars destroy it as it was attacking Steven for what I can only assume is trespassing. For once in his life Lars seems to be digging deep into his emotional bag pulling up on courage that has been buried by cowardice and fear. Though I don’t know how long this wave of courage will last. For in the next few scenes we see Steven and Lars steal Blue Diamonds palanquin and I know how frightful the diamonds can be once you have enraged them.

I have been waiting for so long to see the Diamonds in action and finally we will get the chance to witness there power or at least Yellow Diamonds powers as she is clearly being shown using it or at least directing those electrical currents that are moving across her body. By her expression she clearly knows what she’s doing and not in pain at all as her eyes give away that she’s focused and in control.

The kindergarten that was shown being blown up has all perfect holes from which various gems have emerged from. From the episode kindergarten kid we know these are jasper quality holes, perfect in every way creating gems that are flawless. The way they are shaped and by how large they are I believe these are where most of the Rose Quartz have emerged from and possibly a few smaller gems as the holes aren’t large enough. Why is this important. If you remember correctly in the episode Gem Heist. The room where Blue Diamond is kneeling the ceiling is covered in Rose Quartz gems that have been bubbled. During this scene I couldn’t help but wonder why they still kept the soldiers around and didn’t shatter them? Even Yellow Diamond asks this but now I have an idea about why she kept them. Either it’s because of sentimentality that Blue Diamond has for her sister Pink Diamond previously shown off by collecting more humans for the zoo or a far darker reason. From the direct lyrics Yellow Diamonds song in Gem Heist these Rose Quartz’s rebelled against Home World so the only logical reason of why Blue Diamond kept them, was that Home World might meet an enemy so big they cannot defeat them with their current resources and would need extra help. After all the Sapphire’s of Blue Diamonds court are nearly 100% accurate in their depictions of the future and after all if you want to know why you start a war a Sapphire will know.

Due to the lack of information I do not know if they are on a space station or on Home World, but from the aesthetics my eyes are leading me to a space station because of the similarities between the station on which the zoo was located on. Home World is all about efficiently so they would keep the same design and not keep creating new designs unless for a technical purposes as Yellow Diamond is far to logical to change outward Designs for the sake of changing them. Though the inward design with all the cheeses graters is strange, what could be the reasoning of that design.

As we move further into the building we see Steven is sitting in a indent in White Diamonds shape. As we know this part moves. I can write with certainty that this will turn into a podium for him to stand on so he can reach the Diamonds eye sights so they don’t have to look down at him as they cast judgment but straight into his eyes.

With the way Blue Diamond is scrutinising Steven it reminds me of a cop grilling a suspect they just know is guilty of whatever crime they are accusing them off. I can practically hear the cogs turning in Blue Diamonds mind as she observes Steven, as though she’s trying to push the truth out of him with her eyes. By all appearances Blue Diamond was the most physically affected by the death of Pink Diamond. Going into a deep depression that Yellow Diamond tried to pull her out of but the only thing that possibly could was capturing Rose Quartz and exacting justice and as we know from the recently released synopsis for this episode is, “Steven goes to court with the Diamonds and is put on trial.” So my initial thoughts were correct but I do wonder if this trial will be an actual trial or a fast with the outcome already decided.

I speculated with myself that this gem was a historian because of her monocle and her general design, but after reviewing the footage it’s clear to me that she is a lawyer as her nervous or possibly frightful expression that she’s wearing can be explained by defending Home Worlds most notorious criminal Rose Quartz. A high profile case such as that would have the most hardened lawyers shaking in there bell bottoms as she is about face off with the diamonds who with a single word can have her shattered.

There has been much discussion about what this gem could be but after strenuous analysis I have come to the conclusion that this is Moonstone gem. The monocle she wears is a calling card to the moon with it’s shape but it might just have something to do with the fetish that Home World has for eye wear. Her Mohawk is very reminiscent of a crescent moon. Finally the bell bottoms which was a fashion staple around the 1960s to the 1970s and it was 1969 when the moon landing took place. Her colour which is a blue that when the floor lights it turns her coloring to an almost white sheen and it has been described by the Gem Society that, ‘Moonstones are prized for their adularescence, an optical phenomenon that creates the appearance of billowy clouds of blue to white light with a moonlight sheen.’

This gem is giving me a very deep impression that she is in fact a Moonstone and is doing very little to turn me from that direction of thinking.

Along with this new promo it has been discussed that Steven and Lars will fuse and who will be the voice as either Jeremy Shada or Adam McArthur and I honestly hope the voice is Adam McArthur.

Marco talks with a nasally tone which he and Lars share as well as both characters prone to momentary freak outs. Accompanied by brief moments of maturity with fixing problems with adult solutions which is what Steven is known for, I don’t know if it’s going to Adam McArthur or Jeremy Shada the voice of Finn the Human and no offence to him but his voice would feel strange coming out of the Selar (The Steven and Lars fusion).

Well those are just my jumbled thoughts on the Steven Universe promo if you, have your own thoughts on this please write them into the comments below. Please like and subscribe because that always makes me happy.
