First Trailer for Guillermo del Toro's Animated Adventure 'Trollhunters'
"I knew you had potential!" Netflix has premiered the first trailer for a new series called Trollhunters, developed at DreamWorks Animaiton by horror/monster mastermind Guillermo del Toro. I'm breaking our rules to feature a trailer for a television series, which we never do, only because this was originally a movie. We posted a first look shot earlier in the year and it was being developed as a feature at the time (as far as we know). In the meantime, Netflix has picked it up and is turning it into an "original series" available streaming on December 23rd. Ron Perlman and Kelsey Grammer provide two of the voices, but the rest of the cast is unrevealed so far. This looks fun, but derivative, with a cheesy story and all the typical tropes.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Rodrigo Blaas' Trollhunters, direct from YouTube:
From the limitless imagination of acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes a tale of two worlds set to collide in the epic saga DreamWorks Trollhunters. When ordinary teenager Jim Lake Jr. stumbles upon a mystical amulet on his way to school one morning, he inadvertently discovers an extraordinary secret civilization of mighty trolls beneath his small town of Arcadia. Suddenly destined to play a crucial role in an ancient battle of good and evil, Jim is determined to save the world – right after he finishes gym class. DreamWorks Animation's Trollhunters is directed by Rodrigo Blaas, of the short Alma previously. The screenplay is written by Marc Haimes, Tom Wheeler and Guillermo del Toro, based on del Toro's book. Netflix will premiere Trollhunters starting on December 23rd later this year. Anyone want to watch this?
