by Phil Wheat

DreamWorks Trollhunters, all-new epic animated series will launch globally December 23rd 2016 on Netflix. From the limitless imagination of master storyteller Guillermo del Toro comes a tale of two worlds set to collide… A heroic tale that uncoils with ambitious, complex storytelling and stunning visuals that raise the bar for animated series.

When ordinary teenager Jim Lake Jr. stumbles upon a mystical amulet on his way to school one morning, he inadvertently discovers an extraordinary secret civilization of mighty trolls beneath his small town of Arcadia. Strong-willed and seeking adventure but wholly unprepared for the responsibilities thrust upon him, Jim is forced to take on the exalted mantle of Trollhunter, sworn to protect the good trolls from powerful enemies bent on revenge. The first human ever to hold the honour, Jim abruptly goes from fighting his way through the daily mayhem of high school to joining a war that has raged for centuries, a conflict that now threatens all of mankind and troll-kind alike. Accompanied by his closest human friends and a few key troll allies, the courageous fifteen-year-old must plunge headlong into a fantastical world of astonishing creatures, glorious cities, and fierce enemies desperate to destroy him. Suddenly destined to play a crucial role in an ancient battle of good and evil with stakes that couldn’t be higher, Jim is determined to save the world — right after gym class.

All episodes of Trollhunters will be available on 23 December. Check out the trailer and poster for the show below:
