Matt Groening is the guy behind two pop culture giants—The Simpsons and Futurama—and later this year will see the release of his new show on Netflix, Disenchantment. A new trailer has just been dropped, and it gives us a look at Dreamland and its kooky characters.
There hasn’t been a synopsis released for the show yet, but we do know that the series will follow the character Princess Bean who is voiced by the lovely Abbi Jacobson (Broad City). Bean’s ensemble also includes an elf named Elfo (Nat Faxon) and a demon called Luci (Eric Andre).
We should also expect to hear some familiar voices from Groening’s past show. For one, Bean’s father is voiced by John DiMaggio (Bender). Billy West, David herman, and Maurice LeMarche have also been confirmed for guest roles. That’s a lot of exciting news for fans of the Simpsons and for Futurama.
The trailer actually looks like a good bit of fun, and I’m curious what Groening has to bring into this new world of Disenchantment. Netflix has actually made some impressive adult animated shows with the likes of BoJack Horseman and F is for Family, and I hope Disenchantment manages to earn its place in that roster.
Disenchantment comes out Aug. 17 on Netflix.
