New Groening show "Disenchanted"

Coming to Netflix in 2018. Not much about it known other than:
“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.”

Yeah, heard about it in another thread, but it should probably have its own.

I don't know nearly enough to get excited yet, but I'm interested.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Don't have Netflix, but as far as I'm concerned, Groening has a near perfect track record. (I never really read Life in Hell.)
I said: Hey, you! Feed the machine!
Bring them all back down to their knees!
There's no time to waste, remind the slaves
They ain't gonna make it out alive today.
I said: Hey, you! Poison the well!
Watch it all burn, take them straight to hell!
He's got the whole world in his hands
It was nice to know ya
We've all been damned!
C'mon!

I'm highly intrigued to see how this ends up coming out in the long run.

Same. The reveals so far are interesting. I wonder what voice talent well be making a return.

Looks like what's going to happen after Daenerys gets the Iron Throne.

Here's a new trailer!

Not much to see, but you can see how the visual style is going to look. Backgrounds seem watercolory.
