TROLLHUNTERS Returns in 2021 in an All-New Animated Movie

Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters animated series became an instant sensation when it debuted on Netflix in 2016. It ran for three seasons and spawned a whole universe of shows in the Tales of Arcadia universe. That includes 3Below and the upcoming Wizards.  But in 2021, Trollhunters officially returns for an all-new animated movie on Netflix, titled Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans.

We don’t know which characters are returning for this sequel film, but we expect to hear much more about this project in the coming months. For now, all we have is this title treatment, which you can see below.

Guillermo del Toro expanded the world of Trollhunters  into a whole a trilogy of animated series, which he then named Tales of Arcadia. The first extension of the Trollhunters universe was 3Below. That show focused on two aliens of royal lineage and their bodyguard. They make an escape from their home planet and crash land on Earth in Arcadia. This is the same location where Trollhunters takes place.

On the surface, Arcadia appears to be a slice of timeless Americana. However, it is no ordinary town. It lies at the center of magical and mystical lines that make it a nexus for many battles among otherworldly creatures. Among them are trolls, aliens, and wizards. Speaking of, Wizards will be the third series, uniting the three disparate worlds of trolls, aliens, and wizards.

The original Trollhunters featured a stellar cast, which included Kelsey Grammer, The Walking Dead’s Steven Yeun, del Toro’s Hellboy and Pacific Rim buddy Ron Perlman, and the late Anton Yelchin. Yelchin played the main role of Trollhunter Jim Lake Jr., through seasons one and two and parts of the third season. Emile Hirsch replaced Yelchin in the latter part of season three. It’s unknown if Hirsch and the others are returning for this film or if it will feature different characters all together. Johane Matte, Francisco Ruiz Velasco, and Andrew L. Schmidt are directing.

Wizards drops its first season of ten episodes on August 7. Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans debuts sometime in 2021.
