Disney+ released a trailer for a new fantasy adventure reality series called The Quest, which looks like an amazing project! I’ve never really seen a reality series like this before, it looks amazing for sure.
The series is set in Everealm, which for thousands of years “has been a land of unrivaled beauty and powerful magic. Now, the realm is threatened by a powerful evil Sorceress. As a last hope, the noble Fates summon eight strangers known as Paladins from a world beyond to work together to fulfill an ancient prophecy and vanquish the Sorceress. The Paladins must unlock the hero within through a series of challenges that push their limits to restore balance to Everealm. If they fail, all will be lost. Heroes will rise. Kingdoms will fall.”
“combines the best elements of scripted and unscripted content to create an immersive competition series where fantasy and reality collide as the teens compete in challenges in a fully-realized world of adventure. Each Paladin’s mind, body, and soul will be put to the test with new surprises around every corner of the unknown land, changing not only the fate of Everealm but also their own.”
The show was created by the teams behind The Lord of the Rings, The Amazing Race, and Queer Eye and it’s “a groundbreaking, immersive, hybrid competition series that drops eight real-life teenagers (Paladins) into the fantastic, fictional world of Everealm, where they must save a kingdom by fulfilling an ancient prophecy. Throughout the eight-episode series, these heroes are immersed in a fantasy world come to life, complete with a castle, royals, ethereal fates, all forms of mystical creatures, and a sorceress intent on destruction and power.”
Elise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster, executive producers, of New Media Collective, said: “What makes The Quest so unique is that it’s a true hybrid of scripted and reality. It’s a groundbreaking new genre where we place real teenagers in a reality competition and bring them into a fully realized fantasy world that is built on scripted mythology of intrigue and adventure played out alongside actors for a completely immersive experience.”
The Quest is set to be released on Disney+ on May 11th.
