Trollhunter takes place in the world created by del Toro in his epic Tales of Arcadia trilogy. Arcadia may look like an ordinary suburb town but it lies at the center of magical and mystical lines that makes it the center for many battles among otherworldly creatures including trolls, aliens and wizards. In this upcoming adventure animation, three friends discover that beneath their hometown lies a hidden battle between good vs evil trolls. In their most epic adventure yet, they must fight the Arcane Order for control over the magic that binds all the creatures.
del Toro announced in a statement:
“Team Trollhunters committed, about a decade ago, to try and push the boundaries of 3D CGI animation made for TV. We made decisions from the get-go regarding every asset and every audiovisual decision. We outlined a vast trilogy of interconnecting mythology and characters that we always hoped could culminate with a massive ‘all-stars’ reunion. Fortunately for us, DreamWorks Animation and Netflix both shared the very ambitious notion of doing the three series, interwoven and then finishing off with a bigger, epic-sized feature film to top it all off. We wanted the feature to improve and expand but to also deliver more scope, more spectacle- more emotion too. We are very proud of the Tales of Arcadia and extremely eager to deliver this spectacular finale for the audience.”
