The Owl House is coming this week on Disney Channel and we have not been this excited for an animated show, ever, and we mean ever. There are videos and pictures below, as well as some really fun facts about the owls of the Boiling Isles, which is only heightening our anticipation for Friday.
Disney Channel’s upcoming animated fantasy-comedy series “The Owl House” follows Luz, a self-assured teenage girl who stumbles upon a portal to a magical realm where she befriends a rebellious witch, Eda, and a tiny warrior, King. 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.
While we think all the voice acting choices are great, we want to make special mention of Wendie Malick voicing Eda because she fits like the last piece of a puzzle.
Though the magical realm we pulled back the veil and received some fun tongue-in-cheek facts about the owls in the Boiling Isles:
• Owls are famous for being able to fly almost completely silently. This started when they were banned forever from the Boiling Isles library for causing a ruckus, and they have been ashamed about it ever since.
• Owls have four toes on each foot, one of which can swivel around independently. This is why owls kill it playing crane games when they go to the arcade.
• Owls are the squatters of the bird world, living in tree holes, ground burrows or even other birds’ abandoned nests. They say it’s because it’s more economically efficient, but they’re really just very bad at making nests.
• A group of owls is called a parliament. In the Boiling Isles, they’re called a gang of hootligans.
• Female owls tend to be larger than male owls. In the Boiling Isles, it has been discovered that it is because they are, in fact, full of secrets.
• Boiling Isles Owls are hardy creatures, impervious to the harsh burning rains and acid snowstorms; their one weakness is that they are notoriously ticklish.
• Boiling Isles Owls are nocturnal and resent all sources of light. A popular Bonesborough myth says that the moon rises so high up in the sky at night in order to escape all the angry owls that want to fight it.
These owl facts are a perfect way to get a good feel of what we can expect from the show created and executive-produced by Dana Terrace, funny and fantasy driven, a great combination. There are so many questions we have based on the information that we have and we look forward to getting them answered as the show kicks off.
You can watch a preview for The Owl House below and also find a few more pictures from the first episode THE OWL HOUSE – “A Lying Witch and a Warden” and the series. As a reminder the show will premiere on Friday, January 10th and it has already received an order for a second season.
