Disney debuts its first bisexual lead character Luz Noceda in animated series ‘The Owl House’


Disney’s The Owl House has created history by becoming the first animated series to feature the studio's first bisexual lead character. The big reveal has come out just three months after Disney’s Pixar Studios introduced its first gay character in the short film Out. Creator Dana Terrace confirmed on Twitter after viewers started sharing fan theories about the lead character on social media platforms.

The Owl House’s main character Luz Noceda who has displayed affection for both male and female characters in the previous episodes, begins to explore a relationship with another female character Amity in the past two episodes. They even share a dance together during the show’s version of Prom called ‘Grom’.

In a Twitter thread, Dana spoke about her intention to put queer kids in the main cast. She wrote, “In [development] I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast. 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.”

The show’s protagonist Noceda is a 14-year-old who goes on a journey to another world to become a witch. She is first shown to be attracted to male characters but in the latest episodes she is developing feelings for the series’ recurring female character Amity.
