Disney TV Animation Will Produce 2 New Series: ‘Amphibia’ and ‘The Owl House’

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.

Terrace, who we first wrote about six years ago when she was a student at the School of Visual Arts, has since boarded on Gravity Falls and directed on the recent Ducktales reboot.

Amphibia and The Owl House are both set in wildly imaginative worlds and share hallmarks of great Disney storytelling, including fantastical elements and memorable characters,” said Eric Coleman, SVP original programming and general manager, Disney Television Animation. “Matt and Dana each bring a unique sensibility to their shows unlike anything else on tv right now.”

In addition to the announcement of the new shows, Disney Channel also announced today an order for a fourth season of Daron Nefcy’s Star vs. the Forces of Evil.
