Issac Ryan Brown rose to fame in the hit Disney show, Raven’s Home. Now, the talented teen is lending his voice to a new Disney animated series, The Owl House.
Created and executive-produced by Dana Terrace (Disney’s “DuckTales”), the series follows Luz, 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.
