Star Butterfly is a magical princess from the dimension of Mewni. On her fourteenth birthday, she receives the family heirloom wand. However, after she accidentally sets fire to her castle, her parents decide that a safer option is to send her to Earth as a foreign exchange student. She befriends Marco Diaz and lives with his family while attending Echo Creek Academy. Star and Marco must deal with everyday school life while protecting Star's wand from falling into the hands of Ludo, a villain from Mewni who commands an army of monsters. Star and the folks from Mewni are able to travel across dimensions using "Dimensional Scissors" that can open portals.

  • Daron Nefcy's influences for Star vs. the Forces of Evil are primarily Japanese TV shows.
