Fans will be able to return to the fantastical world of Guillermo del Toro’s imagination when DreamWorks Animation Television’s original series 3Below: Tales of Arcadia premieres as a Netflix original series on December 21. As the newly launched official trailer hints, the 13-episode show will be full of intense alien battles, faux pas of Earthling etiquette, and 100% more corgi action compared to its precursor, Trollhunters.
Featuring an all-star voice cast including Diego Luna (Narcos: Mexico), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), Glenn Close(The Wife) and more,
3Below: Tales of Arcadia follows two royal teenage aliens, Aja (voiced by Tatiana Maslany of Orphan Black) and Krel ( Diego Luna, Narcos: Mexico), and their bodyguard Vex (Nick Offerman, Parks and Recreation), as they flee a surprise takeover of their home planet and crash-land on Earth – in Arcadia, the same town where the events of Trollhunters take place. Now on the run from intergalactic bounty hunters, they must blend in and adapt to the bizarre world of high school all while attempting to repair their ship to return to and defend their home planet.
Six-time Academy Award winner Glenn Close provides the voice of the Mothership; the cast also includes Andy Garcia, Nick Frost, Alon Aboutboul, Chris Obi, Uzo Aduba, Cheryl Hines, Tom Kenny, Hayley Atwell, Danny Trejo and Ann Dowd. Returning talent from Trollhunters includes Emile Hirsch, Charlie Saxton, Lexi Medrano, Steven Yeun, Cole Sands, Kelsey Grammer and more in epic crossover episodes that bridge the events of the two series.
From the seven-time Emmy Award-winning team behind Trollhunters, 3Below is created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro. Rodrigo Blaas, Marc Guggenheim and Chad Hammes also serve as executive producers. The Crystal Method created the main title theme.
