Disney’s Star vs. the Forces of Evil only just aired it’s two-part pilot episode last month (with the series proper premiering on March 30), but apparently Disney already likes what it sees.
Animation Magazine recently reported that Disney XD’s Star vs. the Forces of Evil has been renewed for a second season.
The announcement was made by Marc Buhaj, SVP of programming and general manager for Disney XD.
“We’ve seen an instant connection across social media to Daron’s characters Star and Marco, a pair who brings their own unique voice to Disney XD,” Buhaj said. “Since previewing the series’s opening title at last year’s Comic-Con, hundreds of fan art pieces have been generated before the show has even premiered. We are eager to share Star vs. The Forces of Evil with our audiences around the world.”
The first show on Disney XD to be created by a woman, the general premise is described as follows:
The show follows fiercely awesome teen princess Star Butterfly (Eden Sher). After receiving an all-powerful magic wand for her 14th birthday, Star is sent by her Royal Parents to live with the Diaz family on Earth, bringing along her own unique inter-dimensional style to her new home. Together with the Diaz’s teenage son, Marco (Adam McArthur), they navigate high school and embark on dimension-hopping adventures across the multiverse while keeping her wand out of the clutches of arch-nemesis Ludo (Alan Tudyk) and his monstrous forces of evil.
New episodes of Star vs. the Forces of Evil will air on Disney XD starting March 30 at 8 P.M. Be sure to check out Jonathan North’s review of the pilot here.
