Matt Groening, Netflix embrace a little Disenchantment at #SDCC
In today’s world sometimes not all the pixie dust in the kingdom can save you from DISENCHANTMENT. That just so happens to be the name of a new show for Netflix and it had a panel today at San Diego Comic-Con!
Allie Goertz (MAD Magazine/Everything’s Coming Up Simpson podcast) moderated the panel discussion with creator Matt Groening, 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.
Looking like something out of Lisa Simpson’s dream, the 10-episode adult animated comedy fantasy series DISENCHANTMENT — from the mind of Matt Groening — will take viewers to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland. The show focuses on 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 features the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (“Bean”), Eric Andre (“Luci”), and Nat Faxon (“Elfo”) along with other incredibly talented voice actors and Simpon’s alumni included John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.
DISENCHANTMENT debuts on Netflix on August 17, 2018. Learn more at netflix.com/disenchantment.
