The First Disenchantment Teaser Is A Glimpse Into Matt Groening's Magical New Fantasy World

Matt Groening's upcoming Netflix series Disenchantment tells the story of, well, a disenchanted princess who realises that her life's true calling has less to do with ruling a kingdom and more with binge-drinking and swashbuckling with elves and demons.

In the first animated teaser for the 10-episode series, we're introduced to Princess Bean (Abbi Jacobson) as she's returning to her father's kingdom under less than ideal circumstances.

Bean, her elf companion Elfo (Nat Faxon), and their demon buddy Luci (Eric Andre) are called to the king's court, likely for causing a ruckus, and it isn't until Bean's cloak is removed that the king realises he's interrogating his own daughter.

The royals' contentious relationship is undoubtedly going to be one of the main factors driving Disenchantment's plot forward when the series drops on August 17 - but until then we can only guess at just what all other kind of shenanigans the drunken trio will get into.


    Is it just me or does that animation look kinda rough, especially side on with the King's face?

      Yeah it's very basic but if they characters and story are anything like Simpsons or futurama it should be a hit. I never watched futurama for the slick animation it just had great story's and great characters

      Same art style, different animation studio and production value.

        Animation by rough draft, same studio as futurama.

    will it be coming to Aussie Netflix, or will Foxtel get first dibs?

      A netflix contracted series, so highly doubtful.

      Made by Netflix, no way they'd sell this off.

    I'm looking forward to this. While I don't mind the Simpsons it never really appealed that much. But Futurama was awesome. I much prefer the sci-fi or fantasy shows.

    It is coming to Australian Netflix. It is a Netflix series.

    The want is strong.
