Matt Groening is the creator behind pop-culture giants like Futurama and The Simpsons, and it was announced last May that he would be partnering up with Netflix to bring us a whole new fantasy comedy. Now check out the first teaser for Disenchantment.
We don’t have an official breakdown of the story yet, but we do know that the show is set in the world of Dreamland. The main character is Princess Bean (Abbi Jacobson), and she is joined by the likes of Luci the Demon (Aric Andre) and Elfo the elf (Nat Fixon).
The show also promises to bring in some veterans of Groening’s work. We know from the trailer that John DiMaggio (Bender from Futurama) is voicing Bean’s dad, but we should also expect to hear the likes of David Herman, Maurice LeMarche, and Billy West as well.
Based on Groening’s track record, we should expect Disenchantment to be another classic, but we could be speaking too soon. Futurama is pretty great, but The Simpsons, to some fans, feels like it has overstayed its welcome. At Season 30, you can’t blame the writers for having exhausted everything they have creatively.
Disenchantment launches with 10 episodes on Netflix this coming Aug. 17.
