Matt Groening is back with a new animated series and the trailer for ‘Disenchantment‘ looks like he’ll once again be delivering a hit series. The best part is that it will be dropping on Netflix next month so we can all binge watch the complete series in a single sitting!
Check out this new trailer and get a few laughs right now!
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.
While Groening’s last work made us all fall in love with science, science fiction, and the future in ‘Futurama,’ we’re delving into magic and the past in ‘Disenchantment.’ This 90-second trailer dropped during San Diego Comic-Con and was thankfully released online almost instantly after.
While it will be set in the past, the central character of Princess Bean voiced by Abbi Jacobson stated that the show is “really relevant and about a lot of what’s going on today.”
I’m eager to see how that will play out on the small screen next month.
Of her character, she went on to say that “I really like the fact that she’s an anti-stereotypical princess. It’s so not what a usual princess story is — not that there’s anything wrong with that. But it’s a really strong female character, which I’m obviously excited to play.”
