trollhunters season 2

Guillermo del Toro is one of the busiest filmmakers working right now. It seems almost every other day the extremely talented visionary Crimson Peak director announces a new project. He has the excellent The Shape of Water hitting theaters soon (read our review), and he has the second season of his animated series Trollhunters currently in production at Netflix. And now two very familiar names have joined the Trollhunters cast: Luke Skywalker and Cersei Lannister. Okay, actually it’s Mark Hamill and Lena Headey. Hamill, Headey, and fellow Game of Thrones actor David Bradley have all been added to the Trollhunters season 2 cast.

Trollhunters Featurette

It feels like it’s been too long since we’ve gotten a new project from Guillermo del Toro. That might be because Crimson Peak was a bit of a disappointment last year, and we’ll be waiting until sometime next year to see his next movie, The Shape of Water, which started filming just a few months ago. But in the meantime, we’ll have a little something to hold us over.

Guillermo del Toro has been working with Netflix on an animated series called Trollhunters, adapted from a book he wrote himself with Daniel Kraus. While it’s clearly geared towards kids, it has some stylish animation and fantasy action that should keep his adult fans entertained until his new movie arrives. You can see what we’re talking about in a new Trollhunters featurette with new footage and some insight from del Toro himself. Read More »

If you’re a parent with a Netflix subscription, chances are strong that you’re already intimately familiar with DreamWorks Animation‘s contributions to the streaming giant. If you have no spawn of your own, track down and ask the youngest person in your life capable of enjoying animated entertainment and receive an earful. While you were binge-watching Making a Murderer and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, these kids were taking in hours of The Adventures of Puss in Boots, All Hail King Julien, and other shows based on the studio’s lucrative film properties.

Speaking of lucrative, Netflix and DreamWorks Animation have decided to continue putting money in each other’s pockets. The two companies have extended their distribution deal, giving Netflix global (excluding China) rights to several upcoming new shows. The original 2013 deal was the biggest in Netflix’s history, so obviously things went exactly as planned.

So what’s next for DreamWorks’ continuing streaming venture? How about a new Voltron series and a new show created by Guillermo del Toro?

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

At the 2009 Fantastic Fest in Austin Texas, I sat on the jury  for the animated shorts category. It was at this time that I screened awesome animated short titled Alma from Spanish animator Rodrigo Blaas. I fought hard for Alma, but when you’re part of a group vote it’s all about compromise. While I was unable to convince my fellow jurors to name the movie Best Animated Short Film, we were able to award the film with a “special mention”,  which is basically the runners up prize.We eventually posted the short film in a VOTD column late last year. I knew we’d hear from Rodrigo again, but I wasn’t sure how. Blaas worked at Pixar as an animator, so I always assumed he would end up directing something at Emeryville. I was wrong.

Guillermo del Toro is set to godfather the development of a big screen feature adaptation of Alma with Rodrigo Blass directing for DreamWorks Animation.
