Matt Groening‘s groundbreaking animated sitcom, The Simpsons, is currently in its 30th season and still going strong. Now he’s at it again, and has made a new fairy tale-themed series for Netflix.
We mentioned Disenchantment in our Summer TV Preview just two weeks ago, and now, finally, a trailer has dropped for the much-anticipated 10-parter, which premieres August 17.
With Groening in the driving seat, don’t expect a straightforward, “perfect princess kisses frog prince and they live happily ever after” type of scenario. Instead, we’re getting a princess by the name of Bean, voiced by Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson, who has some not-so-royal ways about her. In fact, she’s known for her hard-partying.
The first trailer gives us a look at the medieval village, Dreamland, and an introduction to Bean:
We’ll also meet some of Bean’s friends, a feisty elf (Nat Faxon) and a personal demon (Eric André). Twenty episodes have been made so far, and they’ll air over two seasons.
Groening is also the creator of the sci-fi series Futurama, which ran from 1999-2013. You can catch the intergalactic series via Hulu.
