NEW Animated Netflix Series from the creator of Futurama

Good News Everyone! Apparently Netflix has ordered an adult animated comedy from the creator of The Simpsons and Futurama, Matt Groening. The show will be a medieval, fantasy series titled Disenchantment. “Disenchantment will take place in the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, which is populated by hard-drinking princess Bean, her elf companion Elfo and her personal demon Luci.” In all honesty this sort of reminds me of Adventure Time with some more adult undertones. Now I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing, in fact I think it actually sounds pretty entertaining. I hope that Disenchantment will be to animated, fantasy comedy that Futurama has been to animated sci-fi comedy. 

So far there are not very many details on this new Matt Groening show except that it will have 20 episodes in it’s first season. However, the best news of all is that veteran voice actors and Futurama alumni Billy West (Philip J. Fry), John DiMaggio (Bender), and Maurice LaMarche (Morbo) will be joining the adventure. Only time will tell if Disenchantment will be as good as Futurama or The Simpsons, but I definitely think it has some really great potential.
