The master storyteller Guillermo del Toro (Crimson Peak, Hellboy) is at his best telling a story of Arcadia. The first installment of this DreamWorks animation TROLLHUNTERS has been one of a fascinating experiences! If you haven’t seen it, do so. You entire family will thank you.
The animated characters are brought to life by no less than magical animation techniques. I had a rare opportunity to interview the Trollhunters team at DreamWorks studios in 1917.

Now on the run from intergalactic bounty hunters, they struggle to blend in and adapt to the bizarre world of high school all the while attempting to repair their ship so they can return and defend their home planet.
