Trollhunters is a pretty good show on Netflix. Created by Guillermo del Toro, it is a great way to introduce kids to fantasy storytelling and features some wonderful animation. It even boasts a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, so that says something. The first season also won 6 Daytime Emmy Awards, several Annie Awards, and is becoming a comic by Marc Guggenheim and Richard Hamilton.
We now have a look at Season 2. Titled Tales of Arcadia, the series cast returns and includes Charlie Saxton, Steven Yeun, Jonathan Hyde, Lexi Madrano, Amy Landecker, Fred Tatasciore, Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, and the late Anton Yelchin. The latter completed his voicework on the show before he passed away in 2016.
Trollhunters Part 2: Tales of Arcadia Trailer
In Part 2 of the epic saga DreamWorks Trollhunters, ordinary teen-turned-Trollhunter Jim Lake Jr. faces new challenges in his continued battle to protect his hometown of Arcadia and the fantastical Troll world he inherited. Jim’s risky decision to enter the Darklands unearths startling discoveries, forcing him and his friends to face gripping consequences as they race to end the battle against evil.
For centuries, a grand clash between good and evil has been waging between the trolls beneath our feet. Join Jim and friends as they battle the evil Trolls of the Darklands in Trollhunters Part 2 by master storyteller Guillermo del Toro.
Looks pretty cool, if you ask me! Also joining the cast this year are Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, and David Bradley. Since this comes out the same day as The Last Jedi (poor timing there, I’m afraid), I probably won’t be enjoying this when it all hits Netflix on December 15th. I will, however, make it a point to binge it during the following week! Any excuse to have more Mark Hamill in my life is a good thing, Netflix.
