Disney casts its first ever bisexual lead character in new animated series ‘The Owl House’

Creator Dana Terrace has confirmed that Luz Noceda is bi

Disney Channel has cast its first ever bisexual lead character in its new animated series The Owl House.

The show, which was created by Dana Terrace, follows 14-year-old Luz Noceda who, throughout the series, navigates relationships with characters with different gender expressions.

On Twitter, Terrace confirmed fans’ theories that Luz was bisexual. “In [development] I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast,” Terrace wrote. “I’m a horrible liar so sneaking it in would’ve been hard. When we were greenlit I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could not represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the channel.”

Then, despite experiencing setbacks, several Disney higher ups backed the character. “I’m bi! I want to write a bi character, dammit!” Terrace added. “Luckily my stubbornness paid off and now I am very supported by current Disney leadership.”
