View Full Version : Matt Groening's ''Disenchantment'' Coming To Netflix

07-25-2017, 10:56 AM
Princess Bean and her "oddball" friends Elfo the, erm, elf and Luci the demon will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses and "lots of human fools" on their travels.

Of the new 10-episode series, Matt Groening said: "Ultimately, 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." (Deep.)

The animation for Disenchantment will be done by the same animators as on Futurama, and will feature some pretty familiar voices, including John DiMaggio, Billy West and Tress MacNeille.

Abbi Jacobson will voice Princess Bean, Nat Faxon will bring Elfo to life, and Eric Andre will take on the role of Luci plus there's David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, the brand new Bake Off host Noel Fielding and Lucy Montgomery.

Sounds like a less kid-friendly "Adventure Time."

Princess Bean




Luck the Demon

Okay, who mutated Bart?

Luci looks seriously adorable though, I love him already.

Princess Bean resembles Emma Swan from Once Upon A Time....

It would be nice if this was actually on TV.

Netflix is on TV.

Let's see if Matt Groening still got it, Simpsons were great, Futurama was great, this has potential if it can be original like his previous two shows when they debuted.

Netflix is on TV.

Yeah if you/your family/someone you know doesn't have Netflix by now, then you're just dragging your feet needlessly. Four people can have their own profile for the cost of one subscription.

So its using the same art style as The Simpsons and Futurerama. Also the fact this new series is aim at adults.

Those are some interesting looking backgrounds...

I'm quite excited for this, I hope it's great since it's a different enough setting. The art style is similar because it's Groening but you can't say Futurama and The Simpsons were ever alike even if they were both comedy shows so I expect this to be different. To me Family Guy/American Dad and Cleveland were all too similar.

I'm guessing we'll get 13 episodes in Aug and 13 more in January? That's how Netflix seems to like to split their seasons nowadays to make the wait seems shorter.

Looking great, being an massive Futurama and classic simpsons fan (season 1-7) This looks right up my street. Can't wait.

I don't think it looks too good but I love the Simpsons and Futurama so I'm hyped. The interviews also confirmed that because it's on Netflix there is no censoring, so let's see how it goes, they mentioned not going to extremes. I personally think the way Simpsons/Futurama did violence was already good, I hope it's not worse than that. If it's nudity it'll be people who you wouldn't want to see naked, though I do think Princess Bean should appear nude in that case and have this imperfect body to show even a Princess can't be perfect which is what they're going for. They also mentioned the length of the episodes is going to be different for every single one, pilot is 38 i think and another episode like 276 and it'll be 10 episodes long. They compared it to Rick and Morty and that it'll be single episodes with an overarching plot if you watch them in order but not that important.

The only thing I hate is that the characters have 5 fingers, doesn't fit the Groening style at all.

Looks good to me, I really could use more sword and sorcery type series.

07-23-2018, 06:34 AM
Looks great, more please!

Hi I'm Utrommaniac and I love this little 2-dimensional demon

"I want to get rid of all diseases known to mankind and replace them with worse ones"


Also for Elfo

And of course Bean

Looks so good, can't wait, maybe this will help fill the massive hole futurama has left.

Reviews are in, and many of them suggest there's some teething problems (nothing new with prior Groening shows that found their feet later)

"Teething problems"?

"Teething problems"?

Just my fancy word for "it's painful in places":lol:

08-07-2018, 08:02 PM
Any examples of these "painful moments"?

I haven't seen it, I'm just saying the reviewers weren't impressed.
