The gifted writer and director returns to the animated side of entertainment in his upcoming Netflix original series from DreamWorks, Trollhunters.
Set in the fictional neighborhood of Arcadia, two best friends make a shocking discovery. Beneath their suburb exists a new world, as rich and as vast as the one they’re familiar with. In 2010, after the project was announced, del Toro explained that he wanted to craft an exciting story kids could enjoy, but set in a “genre that was scary.” With Trollhunters, del Toro planned to create a narrative that would mix the concept of fairy tales with a modern twist. The series will be “married with the notion that there is a world right next to us that is completely plagued by creatures of ancient lore.”
Trollhunters will unleash “a new, fantastical world wrapped around two best friends who make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.” The series begins streaming on Netflix sometime later this year.
