Disney’s ‘The Owl House’ Features First Non-Binary Animated Character. In the latest episode of The Owl House, Disney Channel featured their first non-binary character named Raine Whispers (pronouns: they/them). Raine was played by Voice Actor Avi Roque who identifies as Trans, Non-Binary and Queer according to their Twitter bio.
Avi shared their excitement for the new character and getting to be a voice of representation in the LGBTQIA+ community. Avi shared a photo of Raine Whispers in the series along with the caption: “I guest star as Raine Whispers (pronouns: they/them), the sharp and hardworking Head Witch of the Bard Coven, in the new episode of #TheOwlHouse premiering July 24 at 10:00am ET/PT on #DisneyChannel and DisneyNOW. Make sure to check it out!!“
“The Owl House follows Luz Noceda, a teenage human girl from Connecticut who accidentally stumbles upon a portal to another world instead of going to a juvenile detention summer camp. She arrives on an archipelago known as the Boiling Isles, formed from the remains of a dead Titan, and befriends the rebellious witch Eda Clawthorne (alias “The Owl Lady”) and her adorable demon roommate 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 second season, directly following the events of the first season finale, will follow the main protagonists working together to return Luz to the Human Realm, help Eda confront her inner demons, and search for the truth about King’s past while contending with the further plot of Emperor Belos.“
