It’s been almost twenty years since we had a new series from Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening, and it looks like Disenchantment might be another fun successor to those fan-favorite animated series.
Yesterday, Netflix revealed a new trailer for the ten episode series which will be dropping on August 17th. It has the witty comedic beats used expect from producers Groening and Josh Weinstein [Mission Hill, Simpsons, Futurama] with a fantasy setting which should make for some interesting gags and parodies.
In Disenchantment, viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.
The series will feature the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (“Bean”), Nat Faxon (“Elfo”) and Eric Andre (“Luci”), along with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery. Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama).
