Matt Groening's new animated series, "Disenchantment," finally has a premiere date of 2018 on Netflix.
And it will be very different from "The Simpsons" and "Futurama." It's described as a "an adult animated comedy fantasy" and will be set in the medieval kingdom of Dreamland.
The main characters are hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, they will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and the occasional human. As you do.
We've already seen various "Simpsons" characters as trolls and medieval princesses, so we imagine it'll be like the 2007 episode "Marge Gamer" or one of the "Treehouse of Horror" fairy tale or "Harry Potter"-inspired segments. Only more adult.
Groening said via press release: "Ultimately '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."
"Simpsons" regular Tress MacNeille is also among the voice actors, as are "Futurama" stars John DiMaggio (Bender), Billy West (Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg, Zapp Brannigan) and Maurice LaMarche (Kif, not to mention Brain on "Pinky & the Brain"). Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios, who also did "Futurama."
Twenty episodes have been ordered and 10 binge-able episodes will be released at a time, according to Netflix.
