Ever After High TV Review
The "Royals" are a group of students at Ever After High who oppose the whether or not students should be made to follow in their fairytale parents' footsteps. that Kitty undertakes pranks in the hope to impress her mother, the Cheshire Cat. they decide to bring it back to Ever After High, but the Cheshire Cat swaps it Satn has captured the Parents and now the children must stop him before he. And even if she is a POC in Ever After High, it's not going to have as much Still am standing on Cerise's parents being the Designated Parents if the He didn't make Kitty into a cat, but he didn't make Maddie into a hat or Lizzie into a heart either. She meets Raven's mother in the books and seems pretty scared of her, .
The smallest pig is adventurous and impulsive in his wishes. Rebels The "Rebels" are a group of students at Ever After High who oppose the "Royals" in what was known as "The Destiny Conflict", a public disagreement about whether or not students should be made to follow in their fairytale parents footsteps. Students who side with and support the Rebels think it is unfair that students are forced to follow a pre-written path and instead wish to write their own stories and follow their hearts.
As the kind and caring daughter of one of Ever After's most feared villains, Raven decided she didn't want her mother's life as her own and openly questioned The System of Legacies. Not all Rebels dislike their destinies, some choose only to change their stories slightly while others join the Rebel cause to support their friends.
A Cupid is a sensitive girl who loves love. She does not have a destiny but because of her job she believes that everyone has a chance at true love, so she is a Rebel.
Cupid is normally seen hanging out with the Rebels as she encourages them to search for true love. Cupid wants all the students to follow their true hearts' desires.
She was a transfer student from Monster High and before she left she told the other students that she was going to an "Enchanting High School". Cedar Wood Cedar Wood is a kind, honest, enthusiastic girl who is prone to awkwardness.
She is very creative and loves to paint and sculpt. She is very loyal to her friends. Her story as the next Pinocchio contains the Happily Ever After she's always wanted, becoming a real girl, but she considers a destiny on her terms to be most important.
Her father was the one who placed a truth spell on her to prevent her from telling lies. Cerise Hood Cerise Hood is a mysterious girl and she wears her hood to hide her wolf ears.
If people make her mad or aggravated, she will briefly show some of wolf self, her eyes will flash yellow and she growls. This may also happen when she is surprised. She enjoys the company of her close friends. Is destiny something you have to accept, or can you change yours by the choices you make? It's an issue that causes much strife among the teens and casts some of them as petulant and self-absorbed, but Raven's actions show kids the value in standing up to peer and sometimes adult pressure and doing what you know in your heart is right, even if it's not easy.
It's also a good reminder that people usually are more than what their appearances suggest. Continue reading Show less Talk to your kids about Families can talk about the relationship between TV and movie characters and products such as toys, games, and accessories. Do you find yourself drawn to certain toys in the store because of what you see on TV?
Is Raven a good role model? Following her heart sometimes puts her at odds with adults. With one small flaw, the world has become unstable, which could result in the Evil Queen breaking out of her weakened prison. The Evil Queen technically defied her destiny too, by being even worse than she was meant to be and messing up other people's stories instead of poisoning Snow and leaving it at that.
The child of The Little Mermaid will eventually appear, and turn out to have similar motives to Duchess. Since in the original story she also had a tragic fate. Meeshell is here, but it's unknown if her story has the original tragic ending or not. I can't really see what her motivation to do so would be. She likes hanging out with the Royals.
Unless she does it because she wants to become a real princess Same motivation as Maddie, if anything. The whole "not everyone has to follow their set path, but I think I will" thing.
Madeline's never-mentioned mother is Gemini Integra While Integra did teach Madeline Galaxian Explosion, she knew her daughter took more after her father and, to a lesser extent, her aunt Paradox, and thus would be a better Mad Hatter than Gemini Saint. It could explain where Paradox took the tea party shtick from episode 31 from.
Madeline will eventually have a love interest in the form of the March Hare's son.
Nothing more appropriate for the Mad Hatter's daughter! There will be something between Sparrow and Melody later on. Either a romance, or a rivalry.
Instead, he'll stumble upon it out of curiosity, with no idea that, unlike the other characters, he's already following his destiny. Either that, or he'll be a New Transfer Student from a normie school, with an Only Sane Man attitude, and Maddie, Kitty and even Lizzie will be excited about his arrival.
Jossed He appeared as a major character in Spring Unsprung after escaping Wonderland. While he did not stumble onto the school, he wasn't a student until he stumbled onto the book of fairytales. Returning it was his reason for going to Ever After High and if he hadn't stumbled onto the book he wouldn't have had a reason to go to that school and he wouldn't have ended up stuck in there and eventually enrolling I assume.
Finding and returning the book had nothing to do with his destiny. And once he did stumble onto it he really did become a New Transfer Student just not from a normie school with an Only Sane Man attitude -he is from wonderland after all, he's more than used to magic and fairytale characters- though he is pretty normal for an 'Ever After High' student and having not been originally from Wonderland doesn't share any of his compatriots' special skills apart from comprehension of riddlish.
Lizzie Hearts will play a more important role later on Look at where she positioned in the opening: All important supporting characters, while Lizzie's the odd man out because she hasn't really made an impact in the story other than a few throw away lines.
Obviously she'll be a bigger player in some upcoming event. Perhaps in an upcoming story arc about the fate of wonderland Confirmed in A Wonderlandiful World. She is the main character along with Cedar. She's a major character in Way Too Wonderland as well.
Raven IS fulfilling her destiny. By refusing to follow what she thinks is her destiny, she's apparently unleashing some horrible curse that could end her and Apples story.
And, by inspiring others to rebel too, she's inadvertently destroying their stories too. Bringing obliteration upon her story and others out of spite for her own role seems about right for an evil queen.
Raven and Apple actually worry about this in the books. The Evil Step Librarians are working as a penance. The two are clearly the last Wicked Stepsisters, and judging from the glimpses we saw on Legacy Day, evil character are clearly punished for their roles in the story. The Wicked Stepsister were probably assigned to the library, since their crimes of abuse and forced labor aren't as serious as kidnapping or attempted murder, which are the usual crimes committed by fairytale antagonists.
The female voice wants to maintain the status quo; the Evil Queen enjoys being evil. The male voice supports the rebels; Raven's dad has a good relationship with her and would probably be happy if she didn't follow the same path as her mother. The only problem with this is that the female voice seems a bit too nice for an evil queen. Two of the main characters from the future: The female voice could be future! Giles Grimm after the curse gets broken and one of the female teachers who supports the royals, narrating from the future.
Characters from Wonderland, which is why Maddie can hear them and others can't - it's because of Wonderland magic, not because she's a Cloudcuckoolander.
Either Kitty isn't as magical as her, or she can hear them too but she just chooses to ignore them, or doesn't bother with them because she doesn't hear them as much since she's a side character.
Possible candidates in this case: Kitty is confirmed to hear the narrator in the bookverse. Not sure if this trait will carry over into the webisodes.
It does, as of "Kitty's Curious Tale", though it doesn't make sense since the Narrators both seem to fight for some order which is very un-Wonderlandian. They're not riddles, they're very straightforward. The Chief Chronicler and the narrator from the book series.
They're the actual, disembodied voices of text, just like the voice of thought that reads the book inside your head. Lady Narrator represents the stories where a woman is the lead, and Sir Narrator represents the stories where a male is the lead. First-person representing the self-centred-ness due to being told from one POV where Third is told in no general POV and so is selfless. The Narrators literally represent narration itself, just like how everyone in-universe represents a story or in the case of Milton and Giles, authors.
None of the above. They are really reading the story as it happens as evidenced by the younger one being able to change the events as she sees fit, and none of them are characters in the book, and that's why they can't wont change anything in the story, because if they have too much of an impact they become characters on the pages and probably lose their immortality and get transported to the book they're reading.
As for their identities, they're not anybody from the story, so it's not possible to guess who they are, however the younger one was given a name: Brooke Page, indicating their family name is Page. According to a wiki she goes to Ever After High but we've never seen her at school so that might be an embellished fact.
How the "Raven poisoning Apple" thing is gonna go down: Raven will knock Apple out, but she won't actually poison her; it's a sleeping spell or something like that. She does it to make everyone think she poisoned her to protect Apple from the Big Bad who was going to poison her for real with intent to kill Raven's mom, maybe? Daring or whoever you ship Apple with is either still going to have to kiss her to wake her up, or Raven will make it look like he did when the spell wears off and she wakes up normally.
Apple still mostly fulfills her destiny, Raven avoids hers because she didn't actually do anything evil, and everything works out for them. If Apple keeps acting the way she does, she might poison herself just to ensure she gets her happy ending. After all, Snow White is home alone when she eats the poisoned apple. Cut out the middle man, so to speak.
It's unsure if everyone else counts this as Apple's destiny being fulfilled, however. He doesn't seem to care that much about what side everyone's on, plus it's hard to rebel against your destiny if you don't even know what it is. There are at least three Great Glass Prisons, and the third will appear in the last novel of the first trilogy. We've already seen two: The mirror imprisoning Raven's mother is introduced in The Storybook of Legend, and the glass unicorn imprisoning the Jabberwock is introduced in The Unfairest of Them All.
Following the sequence, A Wonderlandiful World will feature the third Great Glass Prison, possibly containing a threat even more dangerous than the Jabberwock. The whole franchise is really The Matrix for kids. The everlasting black ink will be a Chekhov's Gun.
Many chapters later, when Apple reaches her ultimate lowshe will use it to try and dye her hair. It won't be the Rebel movement that makes Apple rethink her Destiny It will be the realization that, by becoming Snow WhiteApple White will be forgotten. Apple's mother was almost a Rebel.
Characters of Ever After High
At some point after Legacy Day, the two of them figured out a way to rewrite their story and rebel against Headmaster Grimm: Instead, Evie would deliver True Love's Kiss for her friend no not like thatand prove that destiny and Grimm's rules were not absolute. Unfortunately, something went wrong with the plan. Evie would go on to Rebel in a more Evil method, and Lily sadly decided that destiny is inescapable and adopted the character of a Stepford Smiler.
But Lily still secretly hopes that Apple and Raven can be friends despite it.
We'll be getting a comic book in the future about the current generations parents, so we'll see. Maybe the book version was, but the cartoon version seen in Dragon Games is a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing who has a major rivalry with the Evil Queen.
The franchise will end with all of the Rebels accepting their destinies. It's because Milton brainwashed them into signing the book. This is a kid's show. It's not going to have a Downer Ending like that. Also the book doesn't exist as of Way Too Wonderland, so no.

The evil laugh in Headmaster Grimm's mirror Apple's glasses will become symbolic. The more she becomes used to wearing them, the more she accepts herself as more than "the next Snow White.
Maddie will become a narrator someday. In a Wonderlandiful World the narrator is corrupted by the Jabberwock's influence and Maddie has to step in to finish the story.
The Chief Chronicler awards her one of the highest honors a narrator can receive and then gets a 21 chapter salute from narrators everywhere. She'll take up narrating on the side while she follows in her dad's footsteps. She was carrying around a book on how to narrate which suggests she's been reading up on it in her spare time.

Plus she seems to really like the book's Narrator. The son of the master of Puss in Boots will be shown as a Rebel. Puss's "master" had a pretty hassle-free path to success. He simply got Puss a pair of boots and ended up following his orders into a cushy life married to a princess. It would be interesting, then, to see his son actively reject this easy path. Maybe he feels he doesn't deserve such a great life yet, or wants to avoid being pushed around by a talking cat. Cerise is a lesbian.
According to her bio, Cerise is shy around boys, being drawn to the leader of the pack. In this case, the two "leaders" of the franchise are Apple and Raven. In the webisodes, Cerise is shown to be very hostile towards boys and comfortable hanging out with other girls.
She is also dressed more masculine than feminine, a common trait in lesbians portrayed in the media. If that wasn't enough, her werewolf traits are treated like homosexuality. The reason Cerise hasn't come out of the closet yet is because homosexuality is not normal due to heterosexuality being the norm in fairy tales. She seems shy in general to me around both boys and girls, usually hanging back if any people are around like at Maddie's tea party to bring back madness to the Grove. I just finished watching the entire series and as far as I remember, she only really speaks to Raven.
Her werewolf traits are treated more like cancer than anything. She hides her ears like how chemo patients hide their hair loss under wigs, false eyelashes, eyebrow pens, and hats. She and her parents are the only ones who feel like it has to be kept secret because tradition is so important in this world, and her parents deviated from tradition despite technically finishing their story. Seriously, not every case of lycanthropy is an allegory for homosexuality, though for some reason any time it shows up anywhere, it's automatically deemed as one even after Word of God states otherwise.
The "leader of the pack" could mean Daring since he's the most popular boy in the school and just as popular as Apple, if not moreso because he's male and most of the school is female and y'know, she could be more comfortable around girls because she is a girl and doesn't know how to talk to boys or because she's worried she'll react to boys in a way that gives off her lycanthropy, like she did in the pilot episode with Daring and his smile. Nanny Nona is Holly's future Gothel.
In Rapunzel, the titular heroine is taken from her parents by the Madame Gothel. It is possible, depending on how traditional the O'Hairs are, that Holly and Poppy were raised by a godmother figure, like their mother before. When Holly graduates and her story starts, it is Nona who is tasked with locking her granddaughter in a tower. Depending on how you look at it, that makes it better or worse.
Maybe because it's Jamieson Price 's voice and I've twice heard him as a main villain in a video game, but something seems very Like the fact that his brother is sealed away in the library. It's possible Maddie is the only visitor he ever gets because she can do anything as long as she knows it's not impossible, so she can enter and exit his place at will Kitty can probably do this, too, if she ever knew about him.
Headmaster Grimm's not the Bigger Bad because he wants to ensure destiny gets the last say, he's genuinely evil, and he's the one who put the spell on Giles to make him speak "Riddle-ish" and make him just as barmy as anyone from Wonderland so he can never tell anyone what his brother really is AND that Headmaster Grimm stole Giles's magic so he'd stay trapped.
He himself put a curse on it. Their power, however, doesn't manifest like Raven's does; it works only through the written word. The thing I cite as the biggest support to this is that "Grimm" is kind of the Odd Name Out in the cast, seeing as it's the name of an author of stories, and not a character. After all, who would have more power than any character in a story?
Their authors, who decide their paths and their actions. He could be a villainous author, like the Big Bad in Princess Tutu. The stories, at their barest bones, do resemble each other, provided Giles and Milton are authors with an absurd amount of power over their students.
An author is, of course, the most powerful person in the entire universe to a fictional character. But if those characters rebel against the author and push the story to go their own way, acting outside their designated paths Drosselmeyer handled it better, though, because he improvised and used it to his advantage until the very end when his powers totally broke.
Grimm is going nutter butters because one person refused to accept her destiny. It's possible the first sign that Milton's powers are fracturing thanks to Cerise's parents is that Maddie can visit with and take people to see Giles, if he's supposed to be sealed away in the library.
Also note that Grimm hired the evil stepsisters to fill his brother's role as librarian after Giles was cursed. Why did he hire villains? Villains usually want other people to suffer because they did. They'd be more likely to make students follow their destinies. Seems to be Jossed after Thronecoming, since we find out the reason Milton is obsessed with following the story is that when he was younger not believing a story almost got his brother killed.
And more importantly at the end after the girls free Giles from his curse he and Milton actually make up with each other, so Milton isn't actually terrible after all.
Was totally right that he put the Babbling Curse on his brother, though. The real reason Headmaster Grimm is so desperate for the stories to follow through to the letter is because every single deviation causes him to lose some of his power over everyone in the land.
The paths they're going down now actually are their destiny. Apple White is blonde, though every Snow White before her has had Raven Hair, Ivory Skin because that's exactly how she's supposed to look. It was already written that her story would deviate from what was originally written. Further, Briar doesn't have the blonde locks Sleeping Beauty is supposed to have in the actual story, not just the Disney rendition where she has "gold of sunshine in her hair" and "lips that shame the red, red rose".
After all, they rightly pointed out that Lizzie isn't destined for villainy, just being "a riddle" with a bad temper. The Snow Queen was not evil in her origin story; the evil was from the mirror crafted by the devil or rather, a being that was a stand-in for him.
In fact she technically rescued Kai after he was affected by a shard of the mirror. I also say "child" because I'd like for her to have a son, seeing as for non-romantic roles they don't mind switching around genders the Hatter and Pinocchio were both male in their origin stories of course, but have daughters.
Confirmed, Crystal Winter is portrayed as a good person, and it's her dad who somehow turns evil and starts threatening people. Cerise and Sparrow are both members of the Hood clan. Or at least, there will be a webisode devoted to people thinking they are, as they both have the surname "Hood", a common ground that can't be all that common when people have such a wide array of surnames as 'Queen', 'White', 'Wood', 'Ella', 'Charming', 'Swan', 'Hatter', 'Hearts', 'Beauty', 'Huntsman', and 'Cupid'.
Headmaster Grimm will make it look like Raven is trying to poison Apple.
