Matt Groening's next animated series will arrive on Netflix on August 17, the streaming service confirmed via Twitter on Wednesday. Netflix also took the opportunity to reveal a few preview screens of the fantasy-obsessed series, which—as we expected—looks like Tolkien through a bug-eyed, Simpsons/Futurama filter.
The series' title, Disenchanted, along with its cast and concept, were announced last summer. Groening has been joined by longtime Simpsons showrunner Josh Weinstein and a remarkable number of Futurama animators and voice actors to build a new elves-and-castles-and-dragons cartoon series. Disenchanted's three primary voice actors, meanwhile, are relative newcomers to the Groening animation universe, with Abby Jacobson (Broad City) voicing the princess Bean, Nat Faxon as the shrimpy elf named, er, Elfo, and Eric Andre as a trickster demon named Luci.

Walt Disney Company already has a $52.4 billion all-stock deal to buy the 21st Century Fox properties. But Comcast was rumored to be lining up $60 billion in financing in order to make a hostile bid for the Fox assets, and Comcast's announcement today confirms it.
Comcast "is considering, and is in advanced stages of preparing, an offer for the businesses that Fox has agreed to sell to Disney," Comcast's announcement said. Comcast is working on the offer in preparation for shareholder meetings in which the Disney/Fox deal will be considered.
