Netflix has ordered a 20-episode dark fantasy animated series from Simpsons creator Matt Groening.
Disenchantment is a dark animated comedy fantasy centered on alcoholic princess Bean, her elf companion Elfo, and her literal personal demon Luci. Set in a crumbling medieval kingdom called Dreamland, the series will run ten episodes at a time starting in 2018.
Abbi Jacobson (Broad City), Nat Faxon (Friends from College), and Eric Andre (Man Seeking Woman) will voice the main trio. John DiMaggio, Billy West (Futurama), Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery -- several of whom have worked on other Groening animated series -- will add their voice talents.
Groening, who will executive produce, says, "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."
