First Look: Guillermo del Toro's 'Trollhunters' Movie from DreamWorks
From his mind to the big screen. DreamWorks Animation has unveiled the first image from their upcoming project Trollhunters, their latest collaboration with Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro imagined and started developing Trollhunters a few years back, around the time he sold The Strain, the vampire trilogy he wrote with Chuck Hogan. "I wanted very much to develop a story that could be written for kids but dealt with a genre that was scary," Del Toro initially stated. "It essentially combines fairy tales with modern times and is about how difficult it is to be kid." This first photo seen below shows two of the main characters from the movie, a sword-wielding human and a big (supposedly friendly) troll. Check it out.
Thanks to SlashFilm for the tip. This photo was revealed to announce that Del Toro will have a Masterclass at Annecy on Wednesday, June 15th. Full studio description: "DreamWorks Trollhunters will unleash a new, fantastical world wrapped around the residents of the fictional suburb of Arcadia who make a startling discovery that the world beneath their hometown is as vast and mind-blowing as anything on the surface. A global must-see viewing event for the entire family, DreamWorks Trollhunters will bring viewers of all ages around the world into the rich and creative mind of Guillermo del Toro." No other details are available yet, but we'll be keeping an eye on this. Guillermo has been an executive producer on a few DreamWorks films.
