This week, the creator of Disney Channel's animated series The Owl House confirmed that the show features the first bisexual lead character in Disney's history.

The Owl House sees Sarah-Nicole Robles voice the titular character as Wendie Malick, Gravity Falls' Alex Hirsch and Tati Gabrielle, Issac Ryan Brown and Mae Whitman round out the cast.

Her name is Luz Noceda, she is a 14-year-old Dominican-American girl even if he's not Disney's first LGBTQ + character (Pixar a few weeks ago featured a gay male lead in the short film Out) is the first bisexual to debut in a television series. "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".

Collection creator Dana Terrace substantiated viewers' theories on Twitter that this was certainly a portrayal of an LGBTQ relationship - one thing that some Disney leaders weren't at all times eager on having within the present. She said that she is a disgusting liar hence sneaking this would have been hard for her. Dana Terrace added that she was told by "certain Disney leadership" that she can not show any bi or gay character on television. "When we were green lit, I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could not represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the channel".

Terrace identifies as bisexual.

'I'm bi! I want to write a bi character, dammit!

In the episode, Amity says she has feelings for Luz and wanted to ask her to go to Grom, a prom-like event. "Luckily my stubbornness paid off and now I am VERY supported by current Disney leadership".

Terrace refused to back down from her desire to represent LGBTQ characters on the show, however. Apparently "happiest place on earth" meant "straightest,"' Hirsch wrote on Twitter. "Thanks to Dana Terrace and team, there are explicitly queer animated main character on Disney TV".

"This time, Disney- you did good", he adds.
