Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is known mostly for his extremely dark and gothic approach to entertainment, but like all of us he is not defined by a single sensibility. He also has a lighter side, and it’s that side that is being indulged in his latest creation, Netflix‘s children’s animated series Trollhunters, a trailer for which has recently made its way to the internet.
Trollhunters is about “a group of friends who discover a fantastical new world wrapped beneath their home town and who will face a battle between good and bad trolls,” featuring the voices of Charlie Saxton, Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, and the late Anton Yelchin. And it’s a sure bet that thanks to del Toro’s involvement, plenty of adults will be watching it once it comes out, too.
That would be on December 23rd, when Trollhunters comes to a Netflix account near you. In the meantime, you can check out the trailer for the show below.
