The Owl House was created by Dana Terrace, previously worked on Gravity Falls as a storyboard artist and later a director on the 2017 DuckTales reboot. The show was originally scheduled for release in 2019, but was delayed to early 2020. The animation is provided by Rough Draft Korea, Sunmin Image Pictures, and Sugarcube Animation.
The visual design of the show was inspired by various European painters including Remedios Varo, John Bauer, and definitely Hieronymus Bosch, who was best known for his surrealistic depictions of hell. Dana Terrace also took a lot of inspiration from Russian architecture as well as medieval church art.
- With this series, Dana Terrace is the sixth woman to create a series for Disney Television Animation, after Sue Rose (Pepper Ann), Chris Nee (Doc McStuffins), Daron Nefcy (Star vs. the Forces of Evil), Krista Tucker (Fancy Nancy), and Nicole Dubuc (The Rocketeer).
- This is the second series where Alex Hirsch is featured in a magical setting, opposite to his past series, Gravity Falls, which is magical but paranormal.
- The first letter of each episode title in Season 1 spells out the phrase, "A witch loses a true way."
- With Amity Blight being revealed to have a crush on Luz and creator Dana Terrace revealing that one of the characters is bisexual (albeit without revealing which one), The Owl House is Disney's first animated production to feature a promienetly LGBTQ+ character, as most other animated productions either had a background LGBTQ+ character or had characters whose sexuality was only briefly touched upon.
