Disney+'s Immersive, Hybrid Competition Series 'The Quest' Trailer
"There is a bigger goal at the end than just winning." Disney has revealed an offiical trailer for their new series The Quest arriving in May. We usually don't care for reality series, but this seems like a fun magical kingdom creation. This 2022 series is a Disney+ reboot of the same series from 2014 that only aired for one season. An "immersive competition series" that drops 8 young people into the fantastic, fictional world of Everealm, where they must save a Kingdom by fulfilling an ancient prophecy. The "NPC" cast includes Mel Mehrabian as Sorceress Tavora, Elliott Ross, Emily Gateley, Harry Aspinwall, Kerwin Thompson, Braeden De La Garza, Racquel Jean-Louis, and Jarod Lindsey. The producers claim "we're doing something magical that has never been done at this level. We’re taking real people and putting them in a fully realized fantasy story, conceived and built by incredible artisans in every department… It's a real-life hero's journey for these eight normal teenagers, who transform before your very eyes. It's an exciting new form of storytelling." I don't know, I think we've seen this exact kind of storytelling before. It does look cool.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Disney+'s new series The Quest, direct from YouTube:
