New Featurette for Guillermo del Toro's "Trollhunters"


Anyone who reads my work on a regular basis knows how I feel about Guillermo del Toro. I absolutely hated "Pacific Rim" and think he's basically a talker who doesn't get anywhere near as many projects done as he attaches himself to. He's also a paradox in that he swears up and down horror movies should be rated R but then produces ones that are PG-13. In general, he's an out-of-control fanboy with way too much power in Hollywood. However, he did redeem himself with "Crimson Peak."

Del Toro is back with his latest creation, "Trollhunters." After the jump you can get more information and see a featurette for the new DreamWorks Animation Television and Netflix original series.


From the limitless imagination of acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes a tale of two worlds set to collide in the epic saga DreamWorks "Trollhunters." When ordinary teenager Jim Lake Jr. stumbles upon a mystical amulet on his way to school one morning, he inadvertently discovers an extraordinary secret civilization of mighty trolls beneath his small town of Arcadia. Suddenly destined to play a crucial role in an ancient battle of good and evil, Jim is determined to save the world – right after gym class. A must-see viewing event for the entire family, DreamWorks "Trollhunters" will bring viewers of all ages around the globe into the rich and creative world of this all-new Netflix original series, premiering worldwide December 23, 2016.

Voice talent includes Kelsey Grammer (“The Simpsons,” "X-Men: The Last Stand"), Ron Perlman ("Hellboy," “Adventure Time”), Steven Yeun (“The Walking Dead”) and Anton Yelchin ("Star Trek Beyond"). "Trollhunters" is created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro ("Crimson Peak," "Hellboy"). Marc Guggenheim (TV’s “Arrow,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), Rodrigo Blaas (animator "Up," "Brave," "WALL•E"), Christina Steinberg ("Rise of the Guardians") and Chad Hammes ("Dragons: Race to the Edge") serve as executive producers. Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman are co-executive producers.
