Created by Groening (The Simpsons, Futurama), the show takes place in the crumbling medieval kingdom named Dreamland and centers on the exploits of a hard-drinking princess named Bean (Jacobson), her plucky elf friend Elfo (Faxon), and her personal demon Luci (Andre) as they match wits with “ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.”

The series, whose 10-episode first season launches Aug. 17, also will feature the voice talents of John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.

“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,” is how Groening described the show last year.

Groening teased parts of the images yesterday on Reddit, but here they are in their full cartoon glory.

Disenchantment had been in the works at Netflix for more than year and a half. A long lead time is needed for mounting an animated series, which is a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. Netflix has been gradually expanding its animated series portfolio that includes BoJack Horseman, F Is For Family and the upcoming Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs And Ham.
