Disney Branded Television Kicks Off ‘The Owl House’ Final Series Specials

Award-winning animated series culminates with 3 specials following Luz's journey to save the Boiling Isles from the evil Emperor Belos and the unpredictable Collector; the 1st special debuts on Disney Channel and Disney XD next month, with the final 2 coming in 2023.

Disney Branded Television has announced the debut of the first final special of the Peabody Award-winning animated series The Owl House on October 15. Set for simulcast on Disney Channel and Disney XD (9:00 p.m. EDT/PDT), the 44-minute specials follow Luz's journey to save the Boiling Isles from the evil Emperor Belos and the unpredictable Collector.

Created and executive produced by Dana Terrace (DuckTales), the specials pick up following the events of the show’s Season 2 finale. The first special, "Thanks to Them,” finds Luz and her friends stuck in the human realm, ready to go to great lengths to return to the Boiling Isles. Two more specials will follow in 2023.

The Owl House follows a self-assured teenage girl who 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 at the Owl House and ultimately finds a new family in an unlikely setting.

The series stars Sarah-Nicole Robles (Star Darlings) as Luz; Wendie Malick (Just Shoot Me) as Eda; Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls) as King and Hooty; Matthew Rhys (The Americans) as Emperor Belos; Issac Ryan Brown (Raven's Home) as Gus; Tati Gabrielle (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) as Willow; Mae Whitman (Good Girls) as Amity; Cissy Jones (Little Big Awesome) as Lilith; and Zeno Robinson (Big City Greens) as Hunter.

Wade Wisinski (Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!) serves as producer, with Andy Garner-Flexner (Adventure Time) as art director. The Owl House is a production of Disney Television Animation.

In 2021, the series won the Peabody Award in the Children & Youth category for "building a wildly inventive other world that makes room for everyone."

Disney Publishing Group has published two children’s books inspired by the series, "The Owl House: Witches Before Wizards" and "The Owl House: Hex-cellent Tales from The Boiling Isles.”
