Hi folks, just here to inform you that your child’s favorite surrogate parent, Walt Disney, has just launched another kid-friendly cartoon for your offspring’s general amusement—The Owl House. The Disney Channel website provides this overview:
“The series follows self-assured teenage girl Luz, who discovers a portal to another realm where humans are not well-liked, and she must disguise herself in order to fit in at witch school.
Luz partners with a rebellious witch named Eda and her diminutive sidekick, King, who was indeed once a king, and is searching for a way to restore his titles and glory. Despite not possessing any magical abilities of her own, Luz peruses her dream of becoming a witch by serving as Eda’s apprentice and learn the ways of magic.”
Aww, thanks, Disney! I was really beginning to worry that homeschool moms and the public education system were not going to have enough time to fit Witchcraft 101 into this year’s curriculum, but you have done the work for us! You have even graciously provided full episodes of The Owl House for FREE on You Tube, so unattended kids with iPads can easily access the information without wasting parent’s valuable time; all the while making the content kid-friendly and fun! (The Egyptian Book of the Dead and the Qabalistic Writings of Aleister Crowley are so over my kid’s head!)
And here I’ve been thinking my whole life that those astral portals to the “upside down” and rebellious witches are scary. What was I thinking? Eda, the “most powerful witch in all the Boiling Isles,” is a real hoot! (See what I did there?—a real hoot—the owl house?) And the way Luz calls King, “Cutie Pie” like he’s her little pet kitten—aww, that is SO sweet! (Spoiler alert: King’s full name is, “The King of the Demons.”)
(In light of that tidbit of information, let’s revisit the Disney Channel overview again: “King, who was indeed once a king, and is searching for a way to restore his titles and glory.” Yikes. New Golden Age, anyone?)
The trailer says it all, including Luz’s astuciously-assuring final statement, commending her viewers to fear no evil within her dark, magical realm, “I know sometimes it can seem a little different. (‘It’s very stinky!’) (‘And gross!’) Buuuut…if you look at it from a different perspective, it looks just like home!”
And indeed, how many people, who are today professing Christ, in the end of days will fall for the Great Deception, because when it comes upon them, it will “look just like home”?
“You live in the midst of deception….”— Yahweh (Jeremiah 9:6a)
