Disney+ is blending the world of competitive TV with an epic fantasy story in The Quest, which is set to debut on the streaming platform on Wednesday, May 11.
Here’s how Disney describes The Quest: “The Quest is a groundbreaking, immersive, hybrid competition series that drops eight real-life teenagers (Paladins) into the fantastic, fictional world of Everealm, where they must save a kingdom by fulfilling an ancient prophecy. Throughout the eight-episode series, these heroes are immersed in a fantasy world come to life, complete with a castle, royals, ethereal fates, all forms of mystical creatures, and a sorceress intent on destruction and power.”
IGN can exclusively debut the trailer for The Quest in the video below, or at the top of the page:
The ambitious new competition series was created by producers from The Lord of the Rings film franchise, as well as producers from hit reality TV shows like The Amazing Race and Queer Eye.
“What makes The Quest so unique is that it’s a true hybrid of scripted and reality,” says executive producers Elise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster. “It’s a groundbreaking new genre where we place real teenagers in a reality competition and bring them into a fully realized fantasy world that is built on a scripted mythology of intrigue and adventure played out alongside actors for a completely immersive experience.”
