‘The Simpsons’ creator’s new adult animated comedy fantasy series set to launch August 17th.
Netflix today released a teaser trailer for The Simpsons creator Matt Groening’s upcoming series, Disenchantment. 10 episodes of the new adult animated comedy fantasy series are set to launch August 17th.
In the “More Details” section of the Netflix site for the upcoming series, it states only, “More Details – This show is: Irreverent, Witty.” A certifiable news flash, I tell ya!
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. The animation is being produced by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama). Disenchantment is produced by The ULULU Company for Netflix, with Groening and Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama) serving as executive producers.
