The Owl House: A Show about Magic

Anna Price, Staff Writer

The Owl House. A kids show that started January 10th, 2020 on Disney Channel. Here’s a summary of the show: Self-assured teenager Luz stumbles upon a portal to a magical realm where she befriends a rebellious witch, Eda, and a tiny warrior, King; despite not having magical abilities, Luz pursues her dream of becoming a witch by serving as Eda’s apprentice.

Let’s talk about the main character, Luz Noceda. Luz is the 14-year-old protagonist of our show. Luz’s mother wants to send her off to summer camp because she keeps getting trouble in school, so, before she gets on the bus to go to summer camp, an owl steals her book and in an attempt to get it back, she ends up going through a portal to the Boiling Isles. Where she meets our next character.

Edalyn “Eda” Clawthorne. Luz first meets Eda, a fugitive witch who sells human items. Eda takes Luz to her home, the Owl House, where she introduces her to King, the self-proclaimed king of demons. By the end of the episode, Luz, enthused by the Boiling Isles, decides to stay with Eda to become a witch instead of going to camp, which Eda reluctantly agrees to.

King Clawthrone. Luz meets King soon after meeting Eda. Luz’s first reaction to seeing King is by calling him cute in Spanish and then proceeding to hug him. For that, King called Luz a ‘monster’. Later on in the first episode, Luz helps King and Eda get King’s crown back which ends up being a paper crown from a fast food restaurant. But, we love King anyway.

Next, let’s talk about Amity, something very special happens between her and Luz in season 2, but I won’t spoil that for you. Amity is the youngest of the 3 blights. And her mother puts a lot of pressure on her to be perfect while her father just agrees with the mom. A bit toxic, am I right? Anyway, Amity is my favorite character and she might be yours too.

The last thing we are going to talk about today is my favorite episode from season 2. The episode is called “Knock, knock, knockin’ on Hooty’s door” and it’s pretty amazing. Anyway, I hope this is good enough and that you enjoyed listening to me ramble about one of my favorite shows!
