Disney Channel’s “The Owl House” confirmed that Emmy Award-nominated Wendie Malick, Alex Hirsch, and Sarah-Nicole Robles will lead the voice cast of the upcoming fantasy-comedy series. The show follows Luz (voiced by Robles), a self-assured teenage girl who stumbles upon a portal to a magical realm where she befriends rebellious witch Eda (voiced by Malick) and tiny warrior King (voiced by Hirsch).
The network described the show adding, “Despite not having magical abilities, Luz pursues her dream of becoming a witch by serving as Eda’s apprentice at the Owl House and ultimately finds a new family in an unlikely setting.”
Disney Television Animation produced “The Owl House,” which is slated to premiere in early 2020 on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW. The network also announced that Matthew Rhys, Isabella Rossellini, Mae Whitman, Tati Gabrielle, and Bumper Robinson will guest star on the show.
Malick, Hirsch and Robles will join series creator and executive producer Dana Terrace and art director Ricky Cometa for a special panel at New York Comic-Con on October 4th.
“The Owl House” leads a new slate of animated-comedies on the Disney Channel. One of the more popular series to launch this year is “Amphibia,” following 13-year-old Anne Boonchuy, who is magically transported to a fantastical world full of frog-people. Other hits include the rebooted “DuckTales,” and “Big Hero 6.” Fans of the genre should also look for “The Curse of Molly McGee,” a buddy comedy about tween optimist Molly McGee and grumpy ghost Scratch. The story follows Molly, who lives to make the world a better place, and Scratch, whose joy comes from spreading misery. When one of Scratch’s spells backfires, he finds himself forever cursed in Molly’s presence. You also have “Elena of Avalor,” “Big City Greens,” the newly announced “Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur,” “Milo Murphy’s Law,” and “Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventure.
