If I could decide when Star Wars is at its best, though, it’s when its doing thing: blowing stuff up in visually spetacular fights. And the latest episode of Star Wars: the Clone Wars not only does that, but hearkens back to early days of the show. In other words, it feels just like old times.
Ah, the body swap/life swap scenario. It’s a trope so popular, it has its own page on tvtropes.org. When two or more characters think the other has it easy, they swap places for a while. They then realize the hardships they each deal with, learn to appreciate their lives, and make up. I’ve seen it done many times in cartoons, to the point where it no longer has the same appeal. As a result, this week’s episode of The Owl House, while funny, didn’t fully hit the mark for me. But was still funny.
Amity’s been in a lot of episodes of The Owl House so far. While at first she seemed set to be the jealous rival to Luz, we’ve seen there’s a lot more to her. So, as I do with a lot of characters I like, I’ve started analyzing her personality, and what I’ve found has been interesting. However, this episode ultimately gave me a clearer look at what makes her tick.
After taking a break last week for Valentine’s Day, The Owl House is back and ready for more supernatural hi-jinks. So far, the show’s done a great job of establishing its lore and character backstories: the Emperor’s Coven, Eda’s curse, and the show’s take on magic. However, I think that is the episode that begins to really connect everything together. And it does all that while making me think of the film Monster House.
When Gus and Willow tell her of Bonesboro’s annual Covention, where students can learn all about the Covens they can join, she begs Eda to go. They end up going, and we get another piece to the puzzles of Eda’s past and the world of the Boiling Isles.
The last episode of The Owl House taught Luz that she must be patient in learning the art of magic. Now we get to see her relearn that lesson as she sneaks into the Boiling Isles version of Hogwarts.
So, after months of waiting and building of hype, is The Owl House everything that I wanted? Yes and no, but mostly yes. I know I said this about Amphibia, but The Owl House is also the next Gravity Falls.
So I was browsing through Twitter when I saw Alex Hirsch post this image of this Christian news site warning parents about the Owl House and saying how its teaching kids about witchcraft. So I decided to write about why it’s alright for people to be considered weird in this world.

With #TheOwlHouse looking set to be the first big release for #Disney in 2020, I talk about the five things I’m looking forward to the most with Dana Terrace’s creation!

In the second Halloween episode of Gravity Falls, we step into Gravity Falls one night as we’re stranded outside the Mystery Shack and subjected to Stan’s tales. Tales meant to make us BUY HIS MERCHANDISE!!
Of all the versions of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow out there, I think my favorite has to be the 1949 Disney version. I can’t help but love it!
This year at NYCC, Disney fans got a first look at their upcoming cartoon, Owl House. From what’s been shown, it’s a cross between Gravity Falls and Star vs The Forces of Evil. I may not bet at NYCC, but that’s not stopping me from giving my thoughts on this new show!
This season of DuckTales has had its ups and downs, but in the final act, they managed to rally. While the whole “Moonvasion” thing seems a little stupid, it’s true purpose shines through in the season finale: giving the fans the kind of epic adventure we’d expect from the show. We get a who’s who as many of the show’s characters rally together as the Duck Family faces their biggest challenge yet!
