Guillermo del Toro’s Netflix ‘Trollhunters’ Adds Anton Yelchin, Ron Perlman and More
Just days behind the new Voltron debut, Netflix’s next major animated series is already gearing up. Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters has officially confirmed a cast, including Hellboy favorite Ron Perlman, Star Trek vet Anton Yelchin and more from the “family event series” due in December 2016.
Per Netflix’s official confirmation, Anton Yelchin will lead the cast as “Jim,” an ordinary teenage boy whose discovery of a mystical amulet sets his life on a course filled with high-stakes adventure, while Kelsey Grammer plays “Blinky,” a kind-hearted troll who befriends Jim. Last, but not least (with more likely incoming), Ron Perlman provides the voice of “Bular,” a sinister troll who targets Jim and his friends for battle.
So reads the full synopsis:
Trollhunters features a tale of two fantastical worlds set to collide in an epic saga. Set in the fictional suburb of Arcadia, our unlikely hero, Jim, and his two best friends make a startling discovery that beneath their hometown lies a hidden battle between good trolls and bad, the outcome of which will impact their lives forever.
The property itself was first optioned back in 2010 for a 3D animated feature film, but the resulting stall saw del Toro release Trollhunters as an illustrated novel with Daniel Kraus.
We’ll have more as we move toward the December 2016 premiere, but what do we make of the first Trollhunters cast?
