Reviewing the Disney Channel original series The Owl House (2020)

My review of the Disney Channel original series The Owl House.

Reviewing the Disney Channel original series The Owl House (2020)

In my honest opinion, a lot of animated content (Disney included) can be extremely overlooked. Personally, I am a huge fan of the animated medium in its various forms, and The Owl House (2020) is no exception.

The show stars a young, curious, and free-spirited human called Luz Noceda, who has faced a life of judgement and ridicule for her imagination from not only her school but her mother. After Luz’s mother decides to send her off to summer camp to “mature” and gain a more “realistic perspective” on life, Luz finds herself chasing an enchanted owl that leads her to a magical world.

Luz's positive attitude, kind-hearted soul, and determination catches the hearts of not only the viewers but the lone wolf character, Eda. Eda is known in this world as "The Owl Lady" (hence the title), and is an extremely powerful witch and, unfortunately, an outlaw, due to her refusing to conform to the magic council's controlling policies, as they aim to restrict her magical capabilities. Luz becomes Eda's protégé and we watch as she learns a unique and forgotten form of magic to become the first human witch. 

Overall, The Owl House takes you on a magic-filled journey of witches and adorable demons, and we are given a brilliantly diverse cast. The series features Disney channel’s first bisexual main character (Luz) and her female love interest, Amity Blight. It is the romance between these two characters that first sparked my interest in this show, as representation in this particular medium (in my opinion) is extremely important for younger audiences.

I wholeheartedly recommend this show to anyone who wants to experience a joyful and wholesome journey filled with comedy and a mysteriously intriguing underlying plot that is yet to be revealed.
