What do you get when you put a drunken princess, a demon, and an elf together? You get Netflix’s new series “Disenchantment”, from Matt Groening, the man behind “The Simpsons” and “Futurama”.
Thanks to a new series of images, we get our first look at some of the characters we’ll meet in the first 20 episodes (below).
In the series, viewers will visit “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.”
Abbi Jacobson (“Bean”), Nat Faxon (“Elfo”) and Eric Andre (“Luci”), lend their voice to the characters 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 for the series is being handled by Rough Draft Studios (“Futurama”).
“Matt Groening stated, “‘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” premieres on Netflix’s streaming service on August 17, 2018.
