For the first time, an animated series on the Disney Channel features a main character that is bisexual.

The series "The Owl House" follows Luz Noceda on her adventures to a magical world as she becomes a witch.

After a few episodes aired, the showed debuted in late 2020, series creator Dana Terrace took to Twitter to confirm that Luz is bisexual.

Terrace explained that at first, she got some pushback from "certain Disney leadership" about the main character.

"In [development] I was very open about my intention to put queer kids in the main cast," Terrace explained. "I'm a horrible liar so sneaking it in would've been hard haha. When we were greenlit I was told by certain Disney leadership that I could NOT represent any form of bi or gay relationship on the Channel."

Terrace, who identifies as bisexual, really pushed hard for there to be a bisexual character since it resonated so close to her personally.

She also added that she has gotten support from Disney about her decision.
