Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for Matt Groening‘s new animated series Disenchantment, which is a wonderful sounding adult-themed fantasy TV show. The promo trailer doesn’t out much, but it’s enough to start my motor and keep me and fans excited.
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 trailer shows the main character princess Bean being brought back home to her father. The creator previously had this to say about the show:
“Ultimately, 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.”
The series will feature the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson as Bean, Nat Faxon as Elfo, and Eric Andre as 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 developed at Rough Draft Studios (Futurama) and it will hit Netflix ten episodes at a time, starting in 2018. I have to this thing looks legit and solid and all the adult animation comedy fans should mark the calendars.
