Guillermo Del Toro is getting animated and it doesn’t seem to be quite as upsetting as you might expect. In collaboration with Dreamworks Animation and Netflix, Del Toro has made an animated family series called Trollhunters that looks downright delightful.
Let’s call it Box Trolls meets Stranger Things, and then lets watch and see if we’re right.
Del Toro is the creator and executive producer. Characters are voiced by Kelsey Grammar, Ron Perlman, and at least in part, the late Anton Yelchin who tragically died while in the midst of voicing the main character. I’m not sure exactly what they did after Yelchin’s passing, but it sure sounds like him in the trailer.
Trollhunters premieres on Netflix on December 23rd, just in time for holiday merchandizing?
