Netflix ‘Trollhunters’ Season 2 Adds Mark Hamill, ‘Game of Thrones’ Stars
Guillermo del Toro’s Netflix Trollhunters is headed both to a galaxy far, far away, and the world of Westeros. Season 2 of the animated drama is expanding its vocal register with Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, along with Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey and more.
Per Netflix’s official word, Hamill will join the cast as “the unknown older brother to a member of the Trollhunting team but has pledged his loyalty to the evil Gunmar,” while Headey takes the role of “an extremely powerful and evil sorceress who must be stopped at all costs.” The once and future Queen Cersei is joined by Thrones co-star David Bradley, who plays “a mysterious figure known to have great magical powers – but the Trollhunters find he’s not the mystical wizard they expected.”
Here’s the Season 2 synopsis:
DreamWorks Trollhunters features a tale of two fantastical worlds that 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 impacts their lives forever.
Season two, premiering later this year, picks up with Jim entering the Darklands by himself, leaving his best friends and fellow Trollhunters, Toby and Claire, behind.
Season 2 doesn’t yet have an official 2017 premiere date, but worth noting is that the late Anton Yelchin continues to voice lead character Jim, having completed two seasons of recording before his death. Otherwise, the star-studded cast includes Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, Steven Yeun, Anjelica Huston, Jonathan Hyde, Amy Landecker and Charlie Saxton.
We’ll likely see a trailer for the 13-episode season soon, so stay tuned for the latest on Netflix’s Trollhunters.
