Netflix orders new animated comedy from Simpsons creator Matt Groening

Viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland

Netflix has ordered 20 episodes of Disenchantment, an adult animated comedy fantasy series from the mind of Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons.

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.

“Ultimately,” says Matt Groening, “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.”

Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios, the company that worked on Groening’s Futurama

Disenchantment will premiere on Netflix 10 episodes at a time, starting in 2018, and is produced by The ULULU Company for Netflix, with Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama) serving as executive producers.
