The much anticipated series from visionary creator Guillermo del Toro, Trollhunters has released its latest trailer ahead of its debut this week on Netflix.
Based on a book originally by del Toro, Trollhunters tells the story of friends who unearth a mystery underneath their hometown, the existence of a world of Trolls.
With the voice talents of Ron Perlman, Kelsey Grammer, and the late Anton Yelchin, the series is the last work that Yelchin created before his untimely death in June this year. Tom Hiddleston also makes a cameo in the first episode.
The trailer shows us a little of how the relic is lost, with Hiddleston’s character dying to protect it. We also meet Jim, voiced by Yelchin and his best friend Toby, voiced by Charlie Saxton. The pair discover that below their quiet suburb of Arcadia lies another world, where Trolls are in a battle between good and evil. Jim befriends Blinky, voiced by Kelsey Grammar and they battle against the evil Bular (Ron Perlman).
The first two episodes and this trailer were screened earlier in the year at New York Comic Con. del Toro has been working on bringing the project to life for eight years.
When del Toro spoke of the late Anton Yelchin who had completed the voice work before he died in a tragic accident at his home, he said, “We went through great pains to ensure that his voice is preserved for the series,” adding “He was so passionate about it, and he had so much fun doing this.”
Trollhunters makes its worldwide debut on Netflix on Friday December 23rd. All episodes will be available immediately.. which means hello BingeWatching!
