The Simpsons creator Matt Groening’s new animated series Disenchantment will debut Aug. 17 with 10 episodes on Netflix.

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.

Rough Draft Studios, which animated Groening’s Futurama, will animate Disenchantment. The ULULU Company is producing for Netflix, with Groening and Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama) as executive producers.

The voice case features 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 -- all of whom have worked with Groening in the past -- as well as Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding and Lucy Montgomery.
