Netflix made a big announcement Tuesday morning, with the order of twenty episodes of ‘Disenchantment,’ an adult animated comedy fantasy series from Matt Groening.
According to Netflix, the series will whisk viewers 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.
“Ultimately,” says Matt Groening, “Disenchantment will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you.”
‘Disenchantment’ stars 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 will be done by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama).
The first ten episodes of ‘Disenchantment’ will hit Netflix in 2018.
