Disney has unveiled the first footage and poster for their upcoming Disney+ series The Quest at Wonder Con. Described as a mix of competitive TV with an epic fantasy story, The Quest is an 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.

Disney’s official description of the series goes: For thousands of years, Everealm has been a land of unrivaled beauty and powerful magic. Now, the realm is threatened by a powerful evil Sorceress. As a last hope, the noble Fates summon eight strangers known as Paladins from a world beyond to work together to fulfill an ancient prophecy and vanquish the Sorceress. The Paladins must unlock the hero within through a series of challenges that push their limits to restore balance to Everealm. If they fail, all will be lost. Heroes will rise. Kingdoms will fall.

The series comes from a team of Academy Award and Emmy winners including Jane Fleming and Mark Ordesky (Lord of the Rings), Bertram van Munster, Elise Doganieri, and Mark Dziak (The Amazing Race), and Rob Eric, Michael Williams, and David Collins (Queer Eye).

“What makes The Quest so unique is that it’s a true hybrid of scripted and reality,” said Elise Doganieri and Bertram van Munster, executive producers, New Media Collective. “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.”

“We were very focused on the aesthetic of the show, from production design through costume design, making sure that everything felt authentic. We wanted both our Paladins and our audience to feel immersed in the epic world we created,” said Michael Williams and Rob Eric, executive producers, from Scout Productions.

Mila the Oracle receives a message from the fates and relays it to Dravus and the Paladins.

King Silas, Dravus, and the heirs of Sanctum, take the outsiders summoned to fates.
