The new series from Matt Groening, creator of “The Simpsons,” makes its debut next month, and a new two-minute trailer for the series, “Disenchantment,” was just released by Netflix.
The trailer features a Medieval-inspired re-recording of David Bowie’s hit song “Rebel Rebel.” The 10-episode adult animated comedy fantasy series, set in the Dark Ages, launches globally on Netflix Aug. 17.
“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,” Netflix says. “Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.”
The series will feature the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (“Bean”), Eric Andre (“Luci”) and Nat Faxon (“Elfo”), along with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding and Lucy Montgomery.
