The Quest debut on Disney+. on May 11.”The Quest is a truly unique unscripted show as it takes contestants into a fully immersive world of magic and fantasy.

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

The Quest originally ran on ABC in 2014 for one season, but the version of the show coming to Disney+ is more interactive and will be filmed at a castle on the outskirts of Vienna, Austria. Described as a “hybrid reality competition,” The Quest will require the eight teenagers, known on the show as Paladins, to complete a series of puzzles, physical challenges and an enormous maze to test their “mind body and soul.”


“We’re doing something magical that has never been done at this level,” said executive producers Jane Fleming and Mark Ordesky (The Lord of the Rings) from Court Five. “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 an immersive, real-life hero’s journey for these eight normal teenagers, who transform before your very eyes. It’s an exciting new form of storytelling.”

“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 from New Media Collective and creators of The Amazing Race. “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.”
