DreamWorks Animation has released the first promo image from "Trollhunters," the Guillermo del Toro fantasy series debuting later this year on Netflix.
First mentioned in 2010 as a movie, the project at some point transformed into a television series. It was announced in January alongside "Voltron: Legendary Defender" as part of Netflix's deal with DreamWorks.
"Trollhunters" is described as "a new, fantastical world wrapped around two best friends who make a startling discovery beneath their hometown.”
Discussing the project in 2010, Del Toro said, "I wanted very much to develop a story that could be written for kids but dealt with a genre that was scary… It essentially combines fairy tales with modern times and is about how difficult it is to be kid. Normally, kids are idealized in animated films. But the growing pains, married with the notion that there is a world right next to us that is completely plagued by creatures of ancient lore, it’s thematically fitting with the rest of my stuff."
