A successful Comic-Con preview and overwhelming fan support across social media and fan art sites helped Disney XD in its decision to order a second season of animated comedy Star vs. The Forces of Evil ahead of its series premiere next month.
Created and executive-produced by CalArts grad Daron Nefcy, the Disney Television Animation series follows the multi-universe adventures of teen princess Star Butterfly, who is sent to Earth by her royal parents to live with a new family after receiving an all-powerful magic wand for her 14th birthday.
Eden Sher (The Middle) is the voice of Star while Adam McArthur (Star Wars: The Clone Wars) plays her new friend Marco Diaz.
Before making its TV debut on March 30 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, a preview episode of Star vs. The Forces of Evil will be available digitally on February 23 via the WATCH Disney XD app for smartphones and tablets, through Disney XD on demand, and on WATCHDisneyXD.com.
Disney XD is also supporting the launch with two game releases. Creature Capture will be available March 3 on DisneyXD.com and Star vs. The Dungeon of Evil will head to the WATCH Disney XD app on April 2.
