Luz looks like a wonderful fun adventure series with a bit of secrets, mystery and magic as Luz, played by Marianna Santos, upon turning nine, discovers a very important clue about her past. She decides to run away with the help of a magic firefly, where she arrives at a boarding school where her new friends will help her find out about her past. We do also get to see the character who we believe will be the villain in the trailer, as he wants Luz dead from when she was born and looks to come back into her life.
