May 23 (UPI) -- Disenchantment, the new animated series from Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening, will premiere Aug. 17 on Netflix.

Netflix made the announcement on Twitter Wednesday alongside the first images released for the series that feature main characters princess Bean, elf Elfo and demon Luci.

The images feature the characters surrounded by scary trees, exploring a dungeon and relaxing inside a throne room.

The fantasy-based comedy will feature the voices of Abbi Jacobson (Bean), Nat Faxon (Elfo) and Eric Andre (Luci). John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding and Lucy Montgomery will also be providing voice work.

"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," reads the synopsis.

Animation on Disenchantment is being done by Rough Draft Studios, the same studio behind Futurama. Groening is serving as an executive producer alongside Josh Weinstein.

The first ten episodes of Disenchantment will be arriving on Netflix on Aug. 17. The streaming service ordered 20 episodes of the series in June 2017.
