Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, is about to launch a new series on Netflix. A take on the fantasy genre, the first 10 episodes of Disenchantment are set to launch on the streaming service on August 17th. The adult animated comedy has another 10 on the way.
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 show will star Abbi Jacobson as Bean, Nat Faxon as Elfo, and Eric Andre as Luci. Other voice talent includes John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, as well as Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.
Netflix also released the first three images for the series:
Disenchantment is produced by The ULULU Company for Netflix, with Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein serving as executive producers. Animation is being created by Futurama-helmer Rough Draft Studios.
