According to The Guardian, this marks Groening’s first show in almost 20 years. The series is described as an “an adult fantasy about a crumbling medieval kingdom known as Dreamland.”
Disenchantment will run 10 episodes for its first season, and comes equipped with a stellar cast. Nat Faxon, who won the Oscar for the best adapted screenplay for The Descendants in 2011, voices Elfo. Luci will be played by Eric Andre, who recently appeared in the film Rough Night. Other voice actors include Jenny Batten, Matt Berry, John DiMaggio, Noel Fielding, Rich Fulcher, David Herman, Maurice LaMarche, and Tress MacNeille, among others.
Jacobson will voice the role of Bean.
