Today, a special advanced screening of DreamWorks' Trollhunters took place at New York Comic-Con. The event took place inside Madison Square Garden in front of a 5,600 seat audience. And boy, did they go wild for what they all saw.
Following this special screening was a panel discussion with creator and executive producer Guillermo de Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy). He was joined by voice talent Kelsey Grammer (Frasier, The Simpsons), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy), Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) and Charlie Saxton (Betas). Also on hand was executive producers Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow) and Rodrigo Blaas (Alma).
The Trollhunters panel opened with the debut of the official Trollhunters trailer. That was followed by a premiere date announcement for this all-new epic animated series. It officially launches globally December 23, 2016 at 12:01am PT on Netflix. And that certainly is some big, exciting news!
From the limitless imagination of master storyteller 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. Strong-willed and seeking adventure but wholly unprepared for the responsibilities thrust upon him, Jim is forced to take on the exalted mantle of Trollhunter, sworn to protect the good trolls from powerful enemies bent on revenge.
The first human ever to hold the honor, Jim abruptly goes from fighting his way through the daily mayhem of high school to joining a war that has raged for centuries, a conflict that now threatens all of mankind and troll-kind alike. Accompanied by his closest human friends and a few key troll allies, the courageous fifteen-year-old must plunge headlong into a fantastical world of astonishing creatures, glorious cities, and fierce enemies desperate to destroy him. Suddenly destined to play a crucial role in an ancient battle of good and evil with stakes that couldn't be higher, Jim is determined to save the world - right after gym class.
DreamWorks' Trollhunters is a heroic tale that uncoils with ambitious, complex storytelling and stunning visuals that raise the bar for animated series, creating an event series that will thrill the entire family.
