Netflix has released the official trailer for Disenchantment. This adult animated comedy fantasy series will be released on Netflix on the 17th of August 2018.
The Official Trailer for Disenchantment kicked off the panel for the highly anticipated new series at San Diego Comic Con 2018 on Saturday the 21st of July 2018. The trailer features a medieval-inspired re-recording of David Bowie’s hit song “Rebel Rebel.”
Allie Goertz (MAD Magazine / Everything’s Coming Up Simpson podcast) moderated the Disenchantment panel discussion that followed with creator Matt Groening (who also created The Simpsons and Futurama), showrunner Josh Weinstein and cast Eric Andre, Nat Faxon, John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, and David Herman along with Claudia Katz from Rough Draft animation studio.
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 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.
In case you did not know, Abbi Jacobson also voiced Emily on BoJack Horseman, Eric Andre has appeared in episodes of 2 Broke Girls (and a few other TV shows) and Nat Faxon appeared in the Netflix series Friends From College.

I think that Disenchantment is going to be one awesome show. The geeky fantasy fan inside me is excited and I’m looking forward to laughing out loud. Let’s hope that this series lives up to expectations.
If you’re a geek, remember that Comic Con Africa is happening in September, so make sure that you don’t miss out on that.
