Yesterday, the release date of the new Matt Groening series “Disenchantment” was announced. Matt Groening is best known as the creator of the beloved adult animated series “The Simpsons” and “Futurama” -- both of which originally aired on Fox. The release of the highly anticipated “Disenchantment” will be his first new series in nearly two decades!

The series is set to release sometime this summer and will be available on Netflix. "Matt Groening's brilliant work has resonated with generations around the world and we couldn't be happier to work with him," said Cindy Holland, (Vice President of Original Content for Netflix) in a statement regarding the project given during the summer of 2017.

This will also be Groening’s first time creating a series for a streaming service network.

Here is what we know

Groening gave potential viewers a sneak peek of the series by releasing several promotional photos on Reddit and the series’ official Twitter account. However, not much more info is available regarding the upcoming series. Groening and Netflix are pretty tight-lipped regarding this project, so we’ll all have to wait and see what happens when a princess, an elf, and a demon walk into a bar.

“In Disenchantment, viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland,” reads the synopsis.

This animated series follows the comedic misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean (voiced by “Broad City’s” Abbi Jacobson). Right by her side is her spunky elvish sidekick who is creatively named Elfo (Nat Faxon), and her right-hand demon, Luci (Eric Andre).

Familiar voices

During their adventures, the trio encounters "ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.” The series will also feature the familiar voices of many “Futurama” voice actors such as John DiMaggio (Bender), Billy West (Fry), Maurice LaMarche (Kif Kroker), Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.

The voices won’t be the only thing that's familiar. Groening will be working with executive co-producer Josh Weinstein who worked alongside him on “The Simpsons” and “Futurama.” The animated series also “[bears Groening’s] trademark [artistic] style.” But let’s be honest, who can tell that just from looking at the promotional photos?

One look at Bean’s green-skinned sidekick and all you can see is a pickled Bart Simpson.

Rough Draft Studios will be doing the animation, the same studio that did the animation for “Futurama.” Groening says that the series "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."

Netflix has picked up the series for 20 episodes set to be released 10 at a time. The first 10 episodes will be available for streaming this summer, starting on August 17, 2018.
