Futurama Creator Reveals Teaser Trailer For New Animated Series (VIDEO)
One of the most celebrated figures in modern animation has been Matt Groening. His animated The Simpsons shorts on The Tracy Ullman Show turned into the longest running US Primetime series in television history. His follow up series Futurama has also become a notorious cult favorite, and Groening has become a mentor to the creators of other popular animated shows such as Adventure Time. Now, Groening will be making the jump to streaming with a new series for Netflix. The newly released Disenchantment teaser gives us our first glimpse at the show being brought to life.
The trailer above references Groening’s past creations, Futurama and The Simpsons, as taking place in our real-world future and present. Disenchantment, by logical extension, takes place in the past with a middle age setting. The teaser lets us see and hear the series lead character Princess Bean, voiced by Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson, for the first time. She will be followed on her adventures closely by an elf named Elfo, voiced by Nat Faxon, and the demon Luci, voiced by Eric Andre.
Disenchantment will also feature several voice actors from Futurama, including Fry voice actor Billy West, and Bender voice actor John DiMaggio as the Princess’s father and King. Netflix has ordered 20 episodes of the series, and will premiere the first 10 on August 17th later this year. The series certainly looks like the signature Groening art style, and this brief glimpse of the show’s humor will undoubtedly match that of its predecessors.
