Is the Lamprey Vivant dish in Disenchantment in any way related to the creature in the Futurama movies?

Still from the show, showing the Lamprey Vivant being served

Disenchantment: Season 1 Episode 6 - 14:30

    Probably not, lamprey are a real creature so they’re just directly lifted from our world.

    Yup. Possibly also a reference to the cause of death of Henry I ("a surfeit of lampreys")?
