Disney Channel greenlighted two new series this morning: Amphibia and The Owl House. Both shows, to be produced by Disney Television Animation, will debut in 2019.
Ampihibia is created and executive produced by Matt Braly, a director and board artist on Gravity Falls. The show tells the story of Anne Boonchuy, a self-centered teenager who is magically transported to the world of Amphibia, a rural marshland populated by frog-people. There she meets a young frog named Sprig, who will become Anne’s first true friend and help transform her into a hero.
The Owl House, created and exec produced by Dana Terrace, is described as a horror-comedy. The show follows Luz, a self-assured teenager who accidentally enters a portal to the Demon Realm where she befriends a rebellious witch, Eda, and a tiny warrrior, King. Though she lacks any magical abilities, Luz pursues her dream of becoming a witch by apprenticing with Eda, and ultimately finds a new family in an unlikely setting.
