Mewni is an alternate dimension and the birthplace of Star Butterfly. It is a medieval land divided into several kingdoms ruled by kings and queens of various species. The most notable kingdom is Butterfly Castle, formerly ruled by King and Queen Butterfly. After the events of Conquer, Eclipsa Butterfly once again rules as Queen of Mewni with her daughter, Meteora, as the heir.

In "Cleaved", the dimension of Mewni is merged together with Earth, creating a brand new dimension that features the locations and landmarks of both.

Appearance

Mewni looks like a typical fairy tale locale, with various magical creatures and a royal family. Families of nobility include the Butterfly family, the Pony Head family, and the Johansen family. As seen in "Diaz Family Vacation", the occupants residing in the Butterfly Kingdom (ruled over by the Butterfly family) and their place of residence appears to depend on their status in the hierarchy: peasants occupy the lowest land (bottom level), having dirty streets and widespread poverty; then presumably middle-ranking residents occupy the middle section (second level), which is less atrocious than the previous section; and the nobles occupy the highest part of the land where the castle is prominent (top level). This hierarchy appears to have been somewhat dissolved over the course of Eclipsa Butterfly's second reign.

Beyond the Butterfly family's kingdom is a swampland, where Mewni's indigenous monster population were forced to flee after the first settlers forced them off of their land. Since Eclipsa reclaimed the throne, however, the monsters have begun reintegrating themselves back into Mewman society. Mewni's main crop is corn, leading to being heavily integrated into Mewni society.

The sky on Mewni is pink, in contrast to the blue sky on Earth; however, following the merging of Mewni with Earth, the sky is now a mixture of blue and pink.

According to Star and Marco's Guide to Mastering Every Dimension, the royal lineage of the Butterfly family is "matrilineal", meaning the queen holds more authority than the king, and the throne is handed down from the queen to her firstborn daughter. As a result, King River Butterfly (born River Johansen) took his wife's last name upon their marriage. In one case, Prince Jushtin Butterfly was briefly in line to succeed his mother Skywynne as Mewni's ruler, but the birth of his sister Solaria caused him to be superseded.

Trivia

  • Brittney Wong demeaningly refers to Mewni as "Moo-ni" in "School Spirit". Angie Diaz also mistakenly pronounces it this way in "Sophomore Slump" despite previously saying it correctly in "Diaz Family Vacation".
  • In the episode "Match Maker", it is revealed that kids in Mewni do not take tests.
  • In the episode "Lobster Claws", Lobster Claws reveals that he and his fellow monsters, and Ludo, also come from Mewni.
  • Inhabitants of Mewni are called "Mewmans", a portmanteau of "Mewni" and "humans", as stated in "Mewnipendance Day".
  • "Sleep Spells" shows that the Mewnian idea of "Psychology" is launching someone into the distance with a catapult.
  • "Fortune Cookies" reveals that one of the foods of Mewni are talking calzones that tell the eater how they are going to die.
  • "On the Job" reveals that Mewni's monarchy is segregationist. While the Mewmans know how to grow corn, they refuse to openly share it with non-Mewman residents.
  • Though "Diaz Family Vacation" shows widespread poverty amongst the lower levels, later episodes do not show as much grime or filth amongst the citizens.
  • In "By the Book", when Glossaryck instructs Star to point her arms out at 11:00, Star asks "Earth 11:00 or Mewni 11:00?", and Glossaryck answers, "They're the same," suggesting a similar time notation between the two dimensions.
    • However, in the #StarLIVE Live Chat (around 12:55), Star suggests that Mewni's time notation is different than Earth's. It is most likely that the voice actors in the live chat forgot about this and got it wrong as they were just improvising.[2]
  • As of the end of Age of Magic "Cleaved", Mewni has been ruled by 37 queens (not counting the repeated reigns of Moon and Eclipsa), 12 of them identified by name.
