The Simpsons and Futurama are two of the most hilarious shows ever and naturally, Netflix’s Disenchantment, the most recent animated series from maker Matt Groening, has a considerable measure to satisfy. Be that as it may, Groening rushes to call attention to the contrasts between the undertakings, and why Simpsons fans ought to expect something other than what’s expected with Disenchantment.
“The Simpsons is a family sitcom, Futurama was a workplace comedy, and Disenchantment is a show about three damaged people in a magical world trying to figure out who they are and where they are going,” Groening told The Hollywood Reporter. “The show takes some dark turns and there is some tragedy. If you’re sensitive, you might tear up at some point.” (He also teased some “pretty risque material” and nudity.)
Groening called attention to that despite the fact that Disenchantment is a fantasy series, and The Simpsons and Futurama are infamous for their pop culture spoofs, don’t expect steady Lord of the Rings parodies.
“We wanted the world of Dreamland [where the show takes place] to resonate and be real,” he clarified. “We found the best way to tell an arc was to plot it dramatically and add jokes.” There is one compulsory Game of Thrones reference in the debut, however, in light of the fact that “wanted to get it out of the way because people are going to be looking for it.”
Disenchantment premieres on Netflix on August 17.
