Disney has had its fair share of shows recently that demonstrate the company is expanding to reach a wide variety of audiences, but some of its shows have caused a certain amount of confusion among audiences, given their themes. Earlier this year, the company caused an uproar on social media when it released details about its new German show, Pauline, which will tell the story of a pregnant teen that falls in love with the devil.

Now, we’ve learned about another show coming to Hulu that also has viewers puzzled.

A new adult animated comedy, Praise Petey, comes from Freeform. It follows the story of a New York “It Girl” trying to reform and modernize her father’s cult. Protagonist Petra’s (AKA Petey) life is turned on its head when she has to move to New Utopia, a community her father founded. What makes the situation even more tense is that the community believes Petey’s their prophesized savior.

Fans were shocked at the Praise Petey trailer and made their feelings clear about the direction Disney was going in with this new show.

One shared, “It is so nice that Disney is making shows that look like the world they live in. I’m sure it reflects their values and community.”

Another opined, “Disney is showing everyone who they are and have always been…”

Some fans recalled Disney’s current trouble with its theme park attendance (Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort), sharing, “No wonder the Disney parks have fewer visitors. People are sick of garbage like this promoted on their network and it’s souring all of Disney’s products.”

Per the Hollywood Reporter, Praise Petey stars Annie Murphy (Schitt’s Creek), John Cho (Cowboy Bebop), Kiersey Clemons (The Flash), Stephen Root (Barry), Amy Hill (Magnum P.I.), and Christine Baranski (The Good Fight). It was written and created by executive producer Anna Drezen, the former head writer of Saturday Night Live. Bandera Entertainment’s Mike Judge, Greg Daniels, and Dustin Davis, along with ShadowMachine’s Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico, and Monica Padrick from Central Park, are also serving as executive producers.

The show is produced by Disney Television Studios’ 20th Television Animation, with animation by ShadowMachine.
