The Owl House: A Lying Witch and a Warden
January 11, 2020 12:50 PM - Season 1, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Luz, a girl who loves fantasy, is forced by her mother Camilia to go to Reality Check Camp to quell her bizarre fascinations following three different incidents at school. She goes somewhere else instead.

Created by Dana Terrace, with character designs contributed by Matthieu Cousin, this Isekai looks like a great show for folks who loved the weirdest parts of Gravity Falls. Alex Hirsh even voices one of the main characters, the de-powered adorable demon king named King.

Note you can watch the entire first episode on Youtube.

The extremely fabulous Molly Ostertag of Witch Boy/Strong Female Protagonist/etc also worked on the show.

The Owl House airs on the Disney Channel. Presumably it will stream on Disney Plus, but not yet.

The English term for 'isekai' is 'portal fantasy', by the way.

According to the creator of the show, Disney+ will have the full season 30 days after the last episode of the season ends.

I adore this show already. Luz is, I think, the kind of protagonist I like: excitable, a little oblivious, happy to be the stranger in a strange land because, as it were, this new strange land is exactly where they should be. I can't wait for more.

"Apparently #TheOwlHouse is on #Hulu as well! They’ll be uploading episodes along with the premieres! 🦉✨"

On edit, I clicked through to Dana Terrace's timeline and it'll be on Hulu with Live TV, which is basically cable. But another avenue none the less.

Yes, and the English term for 'Bildungsroman' is 'coming-of-age story.' I'm glad we are both well versed on the English terms for various genres.

Dude, Grunkle Stan and Eda would totally hit it off on a blind date while trying to ghost each other to stiff each other with the eight-dollar coffee bill. They both wind up not paying and the coffee house gives them both the 86 and they can never come back, and they immediately collaborate on disguises. Second date. This is the way.
