With the premiere of Guillermo del Toro’s “Trollhunters” just a week away, Netflix has dropped a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the film that whisks viewers to a secret world filled with magic and monsters. Featuring new interviews with talent like Kelsey Grammar, Ron Perlman and Steven Yeun, the video explores del Toro’s new world and some of its secrets.
“We’re making a show that has a different approach to lighting and animation, even,” del Toro explains.
“Fans of sci-fi, fantasy, adventure, comedy, this is a show for them,” shares Charlie Saxton.
“But also, we get to blow some adults away as they’re watching with their kids,” Yeun adds.
From DreamWorks Animation, “Trollhunters” is a classic tale of good and evil that centers around suburban teenager Jim Lake Jr., who accidentally stumbles across a magic amulet that transports him to the secret civilization of trolls living below his small town of Arcadia. Jim abruptly becomes the first human tasked with the role of trollhunter, which means he must protect the good trolls from their vengeful enemies. With the help of a handful of troll allies and a couple of his human buddies, Jim has to survive the brutally mundane world of high school while defending a fantastic realm of wild creatures.
Known for directing epics with stunning visuals such as “Pacific Rim” and “Pan’s Labyrinth,” del Toro has devoted much of the last decade to “Trollhunter,” which has become a passion project for the filmmaker.
“Dreamworks’ Trollhunters” will premiere globally December 23 on Netflix.
