Matt Groening told fans during The Simpsons Comic-Con panel to be on the look out of some news in the coming weeks. Fans didn’t have to wait long!
Netflix announced this week they have picked up an animated comedy fantasy series from The Simpsons creator, Disenchantment. The streaming service has picked up the series for 20 episodes.
The series will center on the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, and follow the life of “hard-drinking” princess Bean, her elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. The trio’s misadventures will have them come up against 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 will feature the voices 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 series is set to premiere on Netflix ten episodes at a time, starting in 2018.
