Bum bum bum.  Well I could have sworn that somewhere it was said that Season 3 would begin in the summer months, but officially it is now fall.  On the other hand, Star Vs. is getting a two hour movie special entitled “The Battle for Mewni” that will air on July 15th.  Here is the official announcement sent out to the media.

A special two-hour “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” TV movie event will premiere SATURDAY, JULY 15 (11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m. EDT), on Disney XD, and will be available to verified users on the Disney XD app and Disney XD VOD platforms.

Titled “The Battle for Mewni,” the TV movie follows Star as she returns to her home dimension of Mewni where she discovers that magic is disappearing throughout the kingdom. Star must dig deep and challenge archnemesis Ludo in an effort to save her family and kingdom.

Season three of the fan-favorite and Annie Award-nominated series is slated to debut this fall. Check out the press release for the brand new TV event below.

“Star vs. The Forces of Evil” is an animated comedy adventure that follows fiercely awesome teen princess Star Butterfly. 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 interdimensional style to her new home. Together with the Diaz’s teenage son Marco, they navigate high school and embark on dimension-hopping adventures across the multiverse while keeping her wand out of the clutches of evil.

Created and executive produced by Daron Nefcy, “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” stars Eden Sher (“The Middle”) as Star Butterfly, Adam McArthur (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) as Marco Diaz; Alan Tudyk (Broadway’s “Spamalot”) as Ludo and King Butterfly; Jeffrey Tambor (“Transparent”) as Glossaryck; Nia Vardalos (“My Big Fat Greek Wedding”) as Mrs. Diaz; Artt Butler (“Her”) as Mr. Diaz; and Jenny Slate (“Parks and Recreation”) as Pony Head.
