The official trailer for Netflix’s animated comedy Disenchantment declares the new series from The Simpsons‘ creator is an epic tale of growing up in the Dark Ages. The trailer introduces Princess Bean and her friends and confirms Bean definitely won’t be mistaken for a standard, stereotypical princess of the Disney variety.

Lending their voices to the first season are Eric Andre, Nat Faxon, John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, and David Herman. Josh Weinstein is the showrunner.
The Plot: In Disenchantment, viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.
