My family is so excited to watch the next chapter of DreamWorks Trollhunters this weekend! Part 2 premieres exclusively on Netflix today!
Emmy-Winning Netflix original series DreamWorks Trollhunters is the first installment in a three-part epic tale from DreamWorks Animation Television. Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim mastermind Guillermo del Toro is bringing his Tales of Arcadia trilogy series exclusively to Netflix, with companion series 3 Below and Wizards set for 2018 and 2019.
What is Trollhunters?
Trollhunters takes place in a town called, ‘Arcadia’. On the surface, Arcadia appears to be a slice of timeless Americana, but it is no ordinary town. It lies at the center of magical and mystical lines that make it a nexus for many battles among otherworldly creatures including trolls, aliens and wizards.
In Part 2 of the epic saga DreamWorks Trollhunters, ordinary teen-turned-Trollhunter Jim Lake Jr. faces new challenges in his continued battle to protect his hometown of Arcadia and the fantastical Troll world he inherited. Jim’s risky decision to enter the Darklands unearths startling discoveries, forcing him and his friends to face gripping consequences as they race to end the battle against evil.
Part 2 features new voices Mark Hamill, Lena Headey and David Bradley, who join Kelsey Grammer in his Emmy-winning role as Blinky, Steven Yeun (Steve), Anjelica Huston (Queen Ursurna), Jonathan Hyde (Strickler), Amy Landecker (Barbara) and Charlie Saxton (Toby). The late Anton Yelchin, who completed recording through Part 2, voices the lead role of Jim Lake, Jr.
Following Trollhunters, DreamWorks 3 Below focuses on two royal teenage aliens and their bodyguard. They flee a surprise takeover of their home planet by an evil dictator and crash land in Arcadia. Now on the run from intergalactic bounty hunters, they struggle to blend in and adapt to the bizarre world of high school all the while attempting to repair their ship so they can return and defend their home planet.
DreamWorks Wizards brings together the three disparate worlds of trolls, aliens and wizards who have found themselves drawn to Arcadia. The final chapter of the Tales of Arcadia culminates in an apocalyptic battle for the control of magic that will ultimately determine the fate of these supernatural worlds that have now converged.
Several of the talent behind Trollhunters, created some of our other favorite series. You will have a great time watching Trollhunters, if you also enjoyed: Dragons: Race to the Edge, Rise of the Guardians, The Lego Movie, and Ninjago.
