Guillermo del Toro is as well known for his amazing creature creations and nightmarish vision as he is for the number of projects he constantly has in development. We’re getting a look at one of those projects today. Surprisingly, it’s not one of del Toro’s live-action productions but rather his animated family friendly adventure series, Trollhunters.
This DreamWorks show, itself a Netflix Original Series, springs from the mind of del Toro and follows the residents of Arcadia as they discover a fantastical world beneath the surface of their own suburban town. As the press release accompanying this first-look image points out, del Toro “has created vast and vibrant worlds with complex human and troll characters that create a cinematic television experience.” But who knew that the humans and troll characters might be working together when Trollhunters comes out later this year?
Check out the first image from Trollhunters below:
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.
It was also recently announced that Guillermo del Toro will be joining Annecy during a Masterclass on Wednesday 15th June at 4 pm, along with a sneak peek at the new series. I’m of fan of just about anything and everything that GDT produces, and a big fan of animation to boot, so I’ll certainly be checking out Trollhunters on Netflix later this year.
