Details on the two new animated series coming to Disney Channel in 2019
Two new original animated series are coming to Disney Channel: AMPHIBIA and THE OWL HOUSE. Both series are produced by award-winning Disney Television Animation (TVA). The network has also ordered a season four pickup for Disney TVA’s Annie Award-nominated STAR VS. THE FORCES OF EVIL from creator Daron Nefcy.
“Amphibia”, from Annie Award-winning director Matt Braly (Disney’s “Gravity Falls”), is a comedy series that chronicles the adventures of 13-year-old, self-centered Anne Boonchuy who is magically transported to the fictitious world of Amphibia, a rural marshland full of frog-people. With the help of an excitable young frog named Sprig, Anne will transform into a hero and discover the first true friendship of her life. Braly serves as executive producer.
“The Owl House”, from Dana Terrace, one of Variety’s “10 Animators to Watch,” whose credits include Disney’s “DuckTales” and “Gravity Falls”, is a horror-comedy series that follows Luz, a self-assured teenage human girl who accidentally stumbles upon a portal to the Demon Realm where she befriends a rebellious witch, Eda, and an adorably 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 fourth season of “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” will follow teen princess from another dimension Star Butterfly (voiced by Eden Sher) and her best friend Marco Diaz (voiced by Adam McArthur) as they continue their adventures in Mewni and explore new dimensions. However, as things change in the royal palace Star will soon learn that running the kingdom is far more complicated than she once thought. Nefcy serves as executive producer.
AMPHIBIA and THE OWL HOUSE will premiere on Disney Channel in 2019.
