The animated Trollhunters project from Guillermo del Toro has been in the works for quite some time now. It began as a movie project set up at Disney way back in 2009—when del Toro was still attached to direct a then two-part adaptation of The Hobbit. In 2010 the movie moved over to DreamWorks Animation, where it remains to this day. However, it was eventually changed from a movie into an animated series coming to Netflix.
The series arrives on Netflix next week, and a new trailer and featurette have been released. The trailer does what trailers do, while the featurette includes some words from del Toro and cast Kelsey Grammer (Frasier), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Charlie Saxton (Betas), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead). You can give them a watch below.
SuperMansion: War On Christmas, an original holiday special for the stop-motion animated series starring the voice talent of Bryan Cranston, premieres online today at Crackle, Sony’s streaming network.
Joining Cranston in the voice cast for the holiday special are fellow series regulars Keegan-Michael Key, Tucker Gilmore, Heidi Gardner, and Zeb Wells (the show’s co-creator), Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons as Mr. Skibumpers, an interstellar imp, and Gary Anthony Williams as the real Santa Claus.

There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the new Netflix/DreamWorks/Cha Cha Cha Films original animated series Trollhunters, created by visionary director, producer, and writer Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Hobbit, et.al.). On Saturday, October 8, del Toro sat down with Geeks Of Doom at New York Comic-Con to tease the show alongside co-executive producers Rodrigo Blaas (WALL-E) and Marc Guggenheim (Arrow), as well as actors Kelsey Grammer (Frasier), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Charlie Saxton (Betas), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead). The protagonist, Jim Lake Jr., is voiced by the late Anton Yelchin, who was spoken of and honored during the roundtable discussion.
Geeks Of Doom’s own Sarah Pfeffer and Athena Costanza Torkel were both in the room for an exclusive look at Trollhunters, which is based on the book co-authored by del Toro. The show premiered after the interview in a special panel, and the cast enjoyed the episode side-by-side with fans for the first time.

On Saturday, October 8, at New York Comic-Con, famed director and writer Guillermo del Toro presented the first episode of his Netflix/DreamWorks Animation/Cha Cha Cha Films original animated series, Trollhunters, along with co-executive producers Rodrigo Blaas and Marc Guggenheim, as well as voice actors Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, Steven Yeun, and Charlie Saxton.
The series centers around Jim Lake Jr. (voiced by the late Anton Yelchin), a kind and protective teenager who, while on his way to school with his best friend Toby, discovers an amulet — calling out his name — meant for the protector of both the troll realm and human realm. What Jim doesn’t realize at the time is that he’s about to be thrust into a dangerous, centuries-long conflict between good and bad trolls, as he’s been chosen to become the one force who can defend both trolls and humanity: the Trollhunter.

It’s been three years since we last left Captain James Tiberius Kirk and his young, hip, sexy rebooted USS Enterprise crew sifting through the charred rubble of the embarrassingly-flawed and intelligence-insulting Star Trek Into Darkness. When the first J.J. Abrams-directed Star Trek feature was released in 2009, it thrilled me as both a lover of well-executed blockbuster entertainment and someone who has grown up enjoying the adventures of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and company because its creative and commercial success ensured that future generations would have their own Enterprise to follow into the cinematic cosmos. Into Darkness pretty much undid every detectable trace of that progress in the span of a mere two hours.
The thought of the sequels that would inevitably follow filled me with the sort of trepidation one often experiences as they prepare to enter an old house that has been abandoned since the previous owners were horribly murdered twenty years ago….
