Netflix has released a trailer for season two of the animated series Trollhunters, which is presented by Pan’s Labyrinth and The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro and DreamWorks Animation.
But it’s not your basic TV show second season. Things are getting shaken up in the Trollhunters universe. It’s been announced that the new season will actually be the start of a new trilogy titled Tales of Arcadia. The trilogy will continue with 3 Below, which introduces aliens as two teenagers from another planet end up here on Earth and must try to blend in as they figure out how to repair their ship. Finally, Wizards will close the trilogy and bring the three stories together.
Below you can find the trailer and a clip from Trollhunters Part 2, as well as quotes from del Toro.
Trollhunters, the Guillermo del Toro animated adventure based on his novel of the same name, has gotten the Stranger Things treatment. We have been seeing quite a few other memes of titles using the Stranger Things logo (which comes from Stephen King’s favorite font), and now Trollhunters gets one, complete with a mashup video that is not such a far reach.
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.
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.
