Plot

Disenchantment’s story is set in the fictional patriarchal medieval kingdom of Dreamland. The plot revolves around Bean, who is a teenage, rebellious, alcoholic, adventurous, gentle, selfless, and fearless princess. Her full name is Princess Tiabeanie Mariabeanie De La Rochambeau Grunkwitz. Despite her rebellious personality, she still cares for the people of Dreamland, her father, and her friends. Over the course of the show, she begins to become aware that she has magical powers that produce black lightening. This is possibly because of the magic granted to her ancestors when they made a deal to become more powerful.

She is followed by her naïve elf companion, Elfo, who is an 18 years old half-elf from Elfwood, is optimistic and likes candy. Her other companion is her destructive but caring own personal demon, Luci. The trio goes on adventures in different places. The first season begins with Princess Bean having two failed arranged marriages. She then meets a naïve elf named Elfo and demon named Luci. They soon become friends and the trio roughhouse and have adventures, or rather misadventures, in the kingdom of Dreamland. Her father, King Zog of the royal house of Grunkwitz, the ruler of Dreamland, disapproves of this and, in turn, tries to have Elfo create the mystic Elixir of Life.

The King eventually gets fed up with the failed tests, and later, he learns from his advisor, Odval, the three-eyed Prime Minister of Dreamland, that he still needs one more ingredient to successfully create the potion. He then sends Bean and Luci to find the Eternity Pendant. On the way to find it, the pair run into Big Jo, who is an exorcist who tried to kill Luci but failed, and later, he kidnapped Elfo as leverage. He then captures Bean and her companions and takes them to the ruined city of Cremorrah, where the vial is hidden. The three of them later attempt to escape with the vial, and they succeed in doing so. They then return to Dreamland only to find that they have a new problem which is that Elfo is only half-elf and King Zog banishes him.

There is also Queen Oona, King Zog’s second and former wife, and Bean’s stepmother, who is a humanoid amphibian creature from Dankmire who married into the family as part of an alliance between the kingdoms. Prince Merkimer from the kingdom of Bentwood was initially arranged to marry Bean but was later turned into a pig. And Queen Dagmar, Bean’s mother, and King Zog’s first wife, is a horrible person who wants to force Bean to complete her family’s debt to the Underworld and finish her destiny, but Bean refuses to do so.

Disenchantment Season 3 Recap

Disenchantment’s third season begins with Dagmar welcoming Bean, Elfo, and Luci to the home of the Trogs. After an unsuccessful attempt to leave, Bean decides to stay. Elfo begins a relationship with a Trop named Trixie while Bean tries to figure out what her mother is up to. While Zog begins to recover from his injuries, Odval and an accomplice give an order to kill him if he fully does, after which Zog is buried alive. After the trio discovers Dagmar’s secret, they are locked in a dungeon. Meanwhile, hiding in his room, Derek finds a book with a secret history of the Kings of Dreamland with a few pages torn out and is found by Odval. Later that night, Odval sees Bean and company escaping from the caves.

Derek then welcomes Bean and Zog back into Dreamland. He pardons Bean and gives the crown back to Zog. After Zog’s erratic behavior concerns Bean, she tries to investigate its cause, while Derek gets locked out of the castle and tries to make some friends. This results in him getting taken advantage of until he meets the fairy Sagatha. He later marries her and, during the wedding, notices someone with a gun who later escapes but not before leaving behind a map to Steamland. When Bean and her companions travel to Steamland, she meets Alva, who hired the person with the gun, and Elfo is kidnapped by a man who owns a freak show and takes him for his collection.

Bean wakes up the next morning and receives an envelope from Alva with a picture of the two of them kissing on a bridge inside. After this, she runs away, and he does everything he can to get her back. She then tries to find Elfo, who remains captured with a number of other “freaks,” and falls in love with his neighbor Edith, a headless psychic. Bean then helps Elfo and the rest to escape, while Zog continues to act crazier. On their way back to Dreamland, Bean meets a mermaid named Mora, and they share a romantic night together, but when she wakes up the next morning and sees that Mora or the necklace which she gave her is not there and she thinks it was all a dream. Later we see the necklace washing up on shore, confirming that the experience was real.

When Oona and Bean try to thwart a plan of the council, it backfires, and they are revealed as who they really are. When Zog comes down to the basement, he sees them naked and spying on Odval and further descends into a downward spiral, which was the council’s plan all along. While Bean, Luci, and Elfo are being drowned in money by human Merkimer, pig Merkimer feels bad and saves them, kills human Merkimer, and the four of them return to Dreamland with the money that Elfo swallowed, while arrows are shot at them. After seeing her father’s condition has worsened, Bean sends him to an unknown location with Chazzzzz.

The finale begins with Bean’s coronation, after which Big Jo arrives in the kingdom claiming to want a truce. Not being convinced of his intentions, Bean locks him up in the dungeon, after which we learn that Odval had called him and that Big Jo has the pages which were torn out of the book. Meanwhile, the castle is under attack by ogres who want Elfo as he stabbed the leader in his eyes. The episode ends with Elfo sacrificing himself to the ogres and Bean promising to find him before anything happens to him. After which, Queen Dagmar enters the castle through a secret elevator, and Bean finds out that it was she who called the ogres. While attempting to save Bean from being taken away by Dagmar, Luci dies and goes to heaven, which is a nightmare for him as he is a demon. It finally ends on a cliffhanger when Dagmar takes Bean to the Underworld to marry an unknown person.
