Star vs. the Forces of Evil: Series Finale “Cleaved”

It’s all come down to this. When the show started as the adventures of a magical princess exiled to Earth for getting into too much mischief, who thought it would end as a rumination on the responsibilities of political and moral leaders, a rebuke of racism, both overt and institutional, with an examination of love and relationships for good measure? It was a far deeper show than it needed to be but never lost its initial appeal with fun wackiness and beautiful animation. I’m sorry to see it go but I’m glad series creator Daron Nefcy and crew could end it naturally, on its own terms. I’m going to miss the show and start dreaming of the day it all comes out in a nice complete box set. But today, let’s celebrate what made the show so special and talk about the finale.
