The teaser trailer for Disenchantment, the animated adult comedy from Simpsons creator, Matt Groening. As mentioned in the trailer, Groening has done shows set in the present (though none of the Simpsons ever age), the future with Futurama and now he will venture to the past to bring us his take on the world of medieval fantasy. Being a long-time fan of both The Simpsons and Futurama, I am in on this. Groening opened the door for adult animated shows, he and The Simpsons paved the way for shows like South Park and Family Guy.

Disenchantment follows below.

“From the mind of Matt Groening, comes the 10-episode adult animated comedy fantasy series, Disenchantment, launching on Netflix, August 17, 2018. 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..”

The show stars Abbi Jaconson, who is probably best know for Broad City, Eric Andre (2 Broke Girls), Jeny Batten, and Matt Berry (The IT Crowd). Veteran voice actor John DiMaggio, who voiced Bender the robot on Futurama is also part of the cast.
