My Analysis Of The "Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil": Season Three Part B "The Trial Of The Century" Promo

Get ready for the very “Trial of the Century”!

Spoiler warning for reader: Please be aware of the spoilers that await you. This article contains information in regards to the second half of the third season of “Star vs. the Forces of Evil,” including “The Battle for Mewni” two-hour movie special, and is meant to give my own thoughts, ideas, and possible theories based on this information as well as the previous material that’s presented as canon to the series as a whole, which can refer to the show itself as well as its published book entitled, "Star and Marco’s Guide to Mastering Every Dimension." If you haven’t seen any previous content of this show, I suggest that you leave the remainder of this article unread, as it’s only directed towards fans of the show and its canon.

Guess what, “Star vs.” fans? Just recently, Disney XD released another promo called “The Trial of the Century,” and despite having already written my article for the week literally a few hours before catching this promo, I decided to take the time to analyze this new piece of Star vs. content! Without further ado, let’s get to: “The Trial of the Century”!

So, it starts off with some narration: “On an all-new Star…”

The scene opens with Eclipsa at the stand, facing the Magic High Commission with Moon at the center. Moon starts speaking: “We are gathered here today with the trial of Eclipsa.” While she speaks, Star peers out from her side, curious as to how the ordeal will unfold. Then, we get a replay of the clip of Eclipsa in her red coat.

The Trial of the Century” (the only title card)

We then see Hekapoo with Omnitraxis, who is projected once again on his crystal ball, both looking somewhat smug, likely confident that Eclipsa is going to lose. Moon is shown with a stack of papers in front of her, labelled “Evidence,” and continues speaking: “If she is found guilty, the punishment will be–” Rhombulus, shown sitting next to a picture of the late Lekmet, cuts in by adding “Death!”

Moon silences him by saying, “Rhombulus, we talked about this,” and points. He says, “We crystallized her last time. Look how that turned out.” We then see Eclipsa, looking slightly stunned at this, probably wondering what the punishment is going to be if not recrystallization.

Then it cuts to Star, who says in a show-off-like manner, “How was it all y’all’s faces when you realize how wrong you were?” She is likely talking to the High Commission though we only see Hekapoo, who is not looking too pleased. Great grammar, Star…

Moon repeats what we previously heard her say in the last promo, “Eclipsa, are you sorry for what you’ve done?” Although this time, we don’t hear Eclipsa’s response, which, in the last promo, was, “No, I’m not.”

The box of truth rises up into the air, yelling out, “Prepare for judgment!” It then reveals a diamond-shaped eye, which points a light in the direction of not Eclipsa but the Magic High Commission. This heavily implies that Eclipsa isn’t going to be the only one examined for this case. Every member on the Commission gasps, and Moon whispers, “No!”

Then, we get the title card with the narrator stating the date and time of the premiere of the new “Star vs.” episodes (Saturday, March third at 11:00.) And finally, we see Ludo’s family’s house (the Avarius family) with a stack of papers resting on a box on the front porch and the a loose plank on the door opening to reveal a pair of eyes through the slit, likely either Ludo’s father (much like the way he did back in “Face the Music” when Moon came to ask Ludo’s parents about the missing spell book) or his brother Dennis (who helped Moon find Ludo’s hide-out at the monster temple.)

Wow, I was not expecting this! This is most likely from “Ludo, Where Art Thou?” in which someone, maybe either Star or Moon, goes to his family’s residence, delivering some paperwork in regards to the well-being of their son, whether if he’s still in the void or has escaped somehow and is causing some sort of mischief.

Anyway, that’s all I got for this promo analysis! As of the time writing this, it is only hours away from the season three part B premiere. I miss “Star vs.” so much!! I mainly wanted to get this piece out sometime before my reaction articles for the new episodes come out, so this seems like the best time to do just that! Get ready for the very “Trial of the Century”! It’s just a matter of time…

The Top 5 Most Adorable TV Characters

They Have Ruled Our Hearts, Gave us Tears of Joy, as well as Hysterical Fits of Laughter with their Charming Screen Presence

Well, they have ruled our hearts, gave us tears of joy and hysterical laughter with their wit and charm, so let's take a look at some of the most lovable TV characters.

1.) Stewie Griffin ("Family Guy"):

He's a baby, everybody loves babies, you might think that but it's not that simple. He's got the IQ of a rocket scientist, devilish designs, and his heartiest wish is to kill his mother, so he's nothing like a baby. He shares a beautiful bond with his dog which is heartwarming to watch. There are so many interesting angles to his personality which makes it worth it to root for him despite his primal instinct - kill his mother and world domination.

2.) Jake Harper ("Two and a Half Men"):

We have another kid, but he's completely from another dimension. This one can win a contest for the dumbest yet cutest kid. He was the half man from the title but had an equal share in making this show what it was - watchable. He was the butt of many jokes in the show due to his general lack of smarts, understanding of words, and self-confidence, as well as being oblivious to the fact he was being made fun of.

3.) Sheldon Cooper ("The Big Bang Theory"):

You have to give it to the 22-year-old theoretical physicist who played this character to perfection. He is freakishly genius and he knows it, but most importantly he doesn't mind letting others know even if its a cop, a judge, or his friends who suffer the most by his quirky mannerisms including his love for "his spot", details, and trains. His devotion to science is so deep that he is oblivious to social cues, women, and even sarcasm. Although these traits make him intolerable for his friends, strangers or even anyone who crosses paths with him, the same faults make him the reason to watch this show.

4.) Barney Stinson ("How I Met Your Mother"):

We have the man himself - Barney Stinson, the guy who eases "awesomeness" and "legendary" into his character and the show like butter onto bread. He's not just a man- he's a religion, he has his own set of rules, codes, costumes, and theories... about getting laid. He's a God to every loser who sees himself dominating/ pretending to be an Alpha male of society- the man that every girl desires to be with. He is immune to disease, fashion disasters, and even a bad photograph. He has crazy theories that he backs up with fake history tales lied to perfection. His concept of lie is something which defines how awesome he is- "A lie is just a great story ruined by truth."

5.) Joey Tribbiani ("F.R.I.E.N.D.S"):

It wouldn't serve justice to this listicle or to the word adorable if I didn't include Joey Tribbiani- the man who made " How you doin'?" what it is. He is the only person who can be dumb, cute, and funny all at the same time. He was the only character out of the six who had a smile on his face no matter what the situation was. He also senses the emotional needs of his friends and does everything possible to fulfill that need. He is the best character to be with when the chips are down, he can cheer up even Droopie. Joey is funny and he doesn't have to put in any effort to be just that. Maybe the fact that he owns an array of expressions which spill out humor and pour directly into our hearts, is the reason he doesn't have to try to be our favorite.

Everything To Love About "Love, Simon"

"Everyone deserves a great love story."

Love, Simon, a film based on the book, “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” by Becky Albertalli came out on March 16th. Since then, it has received an overwhelming amount of positive reviews from movie goers. I went to see the movie last week and was extremely impressed. This movie is exactly what our society needs.

Years ago, the concept of being gay was a taboo and anything involving homosexuality carried a strong stigma. Many creative closeted individuals did not have the freedom to write stories or screenplays with queer characters. After members of the LGBT community became more normalized in society, we started to see the slow rise of films with characters reflecting different sexualities. I have watched multiple movies with queer characters, and ALL of the other ones I’ve seen have been tragedies.

While it is true that the process of coming out and living an authentic life can be difficult for queer people, it is not always tragic. Watching these movies makes people feel like non-heterosexual people cannot have happy endings. Imagine being a 14 year old kid in the closet and watching all these films that end with suicide, depression, or murder. It is easy to see why someone would not want to come out after being exposed to such horrific things. LGBT movies have also always been highly sexualized. Most of them center around the sexual relationships and lack substance. I feel like the writers think that the only appeal LGBT movies can have has to be sex.

The beauty in Love, Simon comes from the fact that none of the things I mentioned above were in the movie. Instead, it was hilarious, emotional and real. The story was raw and relatable for so many people. Simon was a normal high schooler, with best friends, a loving family, and homework to do. He did not fit the “gay” stereotype at all. His clothes were masculine, his voice was deep, and he didn’t love shopping. Simon was not the “Gay best friend” he was just the best friend. Simon was fortunate enough to have all these positive things in his life, which not everyone has. I think that this presentation of his life shows people that their coming out does not have to be tragic.

Simon’s coming out could not have been more realistic. He was outed to his school on an online platform, something that can happen easily in our technological age. He was very affected by this and knew he had to come clean to his family. His sister asked him if he wanted to deny it and he said he was tired of hiding.

His announcement shifted his family for a bit, something completely normal. Some movies have kids come out and show the parents instantly start a pride parade. This is usually not the case, especially when loved ones do not suspect anything. Love, Simon showed his parents trying to adjust to the news. They did not love him any less, but they needed some time to process the information, so that they could do their best for their son. There were days of silence in the family, but the silence was broken in memorable ways.

Simon’s talk with his mom had me in tears. His mom told him that for the past few years, she had felt like he was holding his breath, and tells him, “You can exhale now, Simon.” He could finally breathe and she was letting him know that she wants him to be happy and himself. His father apologized to him for making a lot of gay jokes before his coming out. He did not realize that his words may have been hurting his son, and he tears himself down for not realizing his son was gay. Simon tells him that he has nothing to be sorry about, because his coming out was something that could not be assumed.

Simon’s friends did not treat him any differently after his coming out, meaning that they did not give him any special treatment. They were upset with him for things, and worked it out later. His sexuality was not the issue.

At school, he was bullied by idiots, but he stood up for himself. I think that is something so important for the youth to see. Movies typically show gay kids cowering in a corner while being made fun of. Simon and the other out gay kid (a black character) in his school both stood up for themselves repeatedly, throwing out witty remarks and comments on occasion.

Simon’s online relationship with the other closeted kid in his school exemplified many relationships today. Kids will go online to search for people who they can relate to. With the touch of a button, they can connect with millions going through the same things they are. When Simon meets the person behind the screen, everyone is overjoyed.

The entire film was a masterpiece. Two LGBT characters were people of color. The rest of the cast was diverse as well. The movie did not feature an array of white people, like most movies do. Although there were many serious scenes that had me in tears, there was plenty of levity. The humor was current and made the entire theater laugh.

The representation for queer people in this movie is superb. Multiple members actually came out during the filming of this movie. If that doesn’t show you how positive and powerful this movie is, I don’t know what will. This movie is exactly what LGBT kids needed and I applaud the talented cast, the writers, and everyone else who had anything to do with the creation of this life changing movie.
