We’ve waited nearly a year for it to come back. And while it was touch and go for a bit thanks to COVID-19, I’m happy to say that Amphibia’s here with a new season. If you guys saw my post on the season two trailer, then you know just how hyped I’ve been for Season Two. The Plantar’s are traveling beyond the valley in the journey of a lifetime. There’s gonna be danger, mystery, and more to be found. So without further ado, let’s begin the review.
Even with how rotten 2020’s been, It’s nice to know that there’s still things that I can honestly look forward to. And considering how this week’s going to have the premiere of a show I know I’ll love and the return of two shows I already love, I am one happy camper. Earlier today, Disney released teasers showing what’s next for its shows Amphibia, Big City Greens, and The Owl House. And I knew that I just had to come here and gush about them.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Season Two of Amphibia, I recap the big events of Season One. Go watch it if you haven’t already!
Okay, people, on this day one year ago, we saw the ending to two awesome shows. One of them was an animated cartoon, while the other was an adaptation of the life’s work of a guy that’s dragging his heels on finishing his work. Rather than talk about the ending to Game of Thrones since there’s enough hate for that, I wanted to talk about the end to the other good show on May 19th, 2019.
I actually debated on whether or not I should review this episode now or wit for it to premiere in the West. However, I realized that you should never look a gift horse in the mouth and enjoy that we got a new episode of The Owl House. An episode that sees Luz take the next step in her magic training in a good old fashioned magic boot camp.
When Marco returns to Mewni to spend time with Star, the two become closer than ever. Unfortunately, evil doesn’t rest, and the two friends find themselves in the middle of a conspiracy that threatens to destroy the Butterfly family. Warning: this Fanwork contains mature themes, language, violence and adult situations for mature audiences only.
It is now official. The new DuckTales may be known as the Disney Afternoon Universe, or DAU. Why? Because most Disney Afternoon shows are now in it.
In this episode, the Duck Family gets trapped in a 90s style sitcom that shares the same name as a barely remembered cartoon, Quack Pack.
It’s mid-season finale time for The Owl House, and with no word on when the other episodes come out, the show has to stick the landing. The show’s already given us great moments and big mysteries, which I have been avidly keeping track of. In “Escape of the Palisman”, the writers touch on a recurring mystery in the series. In addition, they set up a new one alongside it.
What did Ashoka do in the days after she left the Jedi, and how did they shape her into the Rebel Leader she became? The final season of The Clone Wars is finally giving us a look at what she did. As far as openings go, though, I’m not impressed.
Over the last few months, I’ve covered a lot of fan fiction revolving around Star vs. The Forces of Evil. It’s my way of dealing with the need I have for more Star vs. content because, despite enjoying the finale, I was left wanting more. Lucky for me, a lot of the fan fics I find end up being pretty good. However, I don’t think I’ve found a fan fic quite like Royal Secrets by BlackWolfWrites.
So despite being banned from Hexside, Gus sneaks Luz back in so she can impress his club. Meanwhile, Eda tries to make amends for her past at school.
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.
