For the first time in Disney's history, a LGBTQ character is playing a lead role in an animated series appearing on the Disney Channel.
The Owl House features a bisexual teenager who is exploring her sexuality while dabbling in witchcraft.
The 14-year-old character, Luz Noceda, has shown affection for male characters in previous episodes, but begins to explore the idea of a relationship with a female, NBC News reports.
The announcement comes after the two episodes, "Enchanting Grom Fright" and "Wing It Like Witches" aired that revealed a blossoming relationship between Noceda and the female character, Amity Blight.
Series creator, Dana Terrace, identifies as bisexual and admits that she was intrigued by the idea of creating "queer kids" in the story.
"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," she said. "I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could not represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the channel."
"Luckily my stubbornness paid off, and now I am very supported by current Disney leadership," Terrace added.
