The Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil Voice Actor Who's Gorgeous In Real Life

Over the years, Disney Channel has produced some classic television shows of all varieties. In the mood for a live-action sitcom? Take your pick of "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," "Phil of the Future," and countless others. How about some cartoony adventures? Look no further than the likes of "Phineas and Ferb" and "Kim Possible." Of course, maintaining such a diverse smörgåsbord was a tall order for just one station, leading to the creation of Disney XD 2009 — a network occupied by titles aimed predominantly at the preteen demographic that range widely in presentation.

Disney XD quickly became known as the home of "Star Wars Rebels" and "Zeke and Luther," among others, but one of its most beloved yet overlooked animated originals was "Star vs. the Forces of Evil." Debuting in early 2015, the series centered on the princess of the Butterfly Kingdom, Star Butterfly (Eden Sher), and her journey to become a powerful magic wielder while juggling the responsibilities of an average Earth kid. She befriends a human named Marco Diaz (Adam McArthur), and the two embark on several interdimensional adventures, thwarting various villains that threaten the universe.

Though she departs from her home of Mewni early on in the story, Star's best friend Princess Pony Head — a literal floating, disembodied unicorn head — didn't confine their friendship to their homeland. She tags along with her and Marco on some of their adventures, voiced by an actress who not only has arms, legs, and a body but is quite gorgeous in real life.

Princess Pony Head is hardly Jenny Slate's first voice acting gig

Just missing out on the show's premiere, Princess Pony Head made her "Star vs. the Forces of Evil" introduction in the second episode of Season 1, "Party With a Pony," from 2015. "Parks and Recreation" alum Jenny Slate signed on to portray the character, sticking with it throughout the entirety of the program's run and securing 25 appearances to her credit. Seeing as it was the series finale, Season 4's "Cleaved" marked the end of Pony Head, but Slate's career hardly faltered. She has continued to add vocal roles to her extensive résumé, many of which are far from one-off gigs.

In the years following the 2019 cancelation of "Star vs. the Forces of Evil," Jenny Slate's voice has found its way to screens big and small on more than one occasion. She reprised the role of Gidget the Pomeranian in both "The Secret Life of Pets 2" and the short "Super Gidget" before jumping to "Elena of Avalor" for one installment as Cahu. Additionally, she continued her lengthy tenures on "Big Mouth," "Muppet Babies," and "Bob's Burgers" into the 2020s, piling "The Great White North" onto her plate as well. As far as the future goes, Slate is currently working on a 2023 film called "The Ark and the Aardvark," where she'll play Mitzy.

Jenny Slate brought a unique brand of energy to Princess Pony Head, and it's a shame we won't get to see more out of her or "Star vs. the Forces of Evil" as a whole. Thankfully, the actress continues to hone her voice acting skills, and it stands to reason we'll hear more from her in the coming years.
