Bapper Entertainment is expanding the licensing programme for Disenchantment, Matt Groening’s Netflix Original animation about a princess, an elf and a demon in a far-away fairy tale realm.

A host of new licensees have come on board, joining the likes of Bioworld, Funko and Kidrobot, and Bapper has secured additional international agents to further expand the brand.

New licensees include home décor specialist Just Funky; Philcos for apparel, swimwear and drinkware; additional apparel from Bravado; Roy Lowe for socks, and wall calendars from Rizzoli International Publications, and a full range of high-end, limited-edition collectable statues courtesy of Level52 Studios. Ranges will begin to roll out fro the end of 2019 and into 2020.

Meanwhile Disenchantment will receive further localised support in South Korea with regional agent Asiana Licensing, and in Portugal, El Ocho Licencias & Promociones will seek out new deals and opportunities.  

To promote the brand and its growing merchandise programme, Bapper is taking to social media with the launch of @disenchantmentofficial on Instagram and Facebook. Followers will be among the first to hear about developments on the series, new consumer product releases, and special promotions and events.

Disenchantment currently streams on Netflix, with 20 episodes now available and more currently in production.
