Accidentally sent to the world of the Boiling Isles before a trip to summer camp, a teenage human named Luz longs to become a witch, with the rebellious Eda and pint-sized demon King at her aid.
The Owl House has received widespread critical acclaim by both critics and audiences and has become particularly notable for its LGBTQIA+ representation compared to other Disney media, including becoming the first Disney property to feature a same-sex couple in leading roles, a same-sex kiss involving lead characters, and a non-binary character.
MIX UP REVIEWS:
Jasmine (Age 14) - ★★★★★
"Owl house was made in 2022 and follows Luz Noceda (a Dominican- American girl) who finds a portal to another world and learns how to become a witch. This show is fun and wacky but importantly it has representation with people with different races and sexualities taking lead roles. Sadly, the show has not been renewed for a third season but seasons 1 and 2 are available on Disney Plus. "

For more action packed animation with strong female characters, this time from Studio Ghibli, Princess Mononoke is hard to beat. There's fantastic representation in The Legend of Korra and it's predecessor Avatar: The Last Airbender. We have our very own black Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Meanwhile for more Disney teens with powers and magical friends check out The Incredibles and Incredibles 2 and Raya and the Last Dragon. Also with Disney you'll recognise the voice of Dipper in Gravity Falls - with more magical beings. Also the team behind the movie was also involved in The Mitchells vs the Machines and there's more creature friends in How to Train Your Dragon.
