Del Toro’s Trollhunters Netflix Series

Written by


We usually associate the name Guillermo del Toro with dark gothic fantasy worlds and weird monsters, so when Netflix announced that it was working on a series with del Toro the last thing I was expecting was a kids show.

The show is called Trollhunter and is based on a young adult novel that del Toro wrote. Originally it was supposed to be a full-length animated film, but the deal with Disney fell through leaving the door open for Netflix to scoop it up and change into a series.

The story is set in a town called Arcadia that is built on top of a world teeming with trolls. The series is described as “a new, fantastical world wrapped around two best friends who make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.”

The animation will be handled by DreamWorks animation, and judging from the image it looks as if they are doing a fine job.
