Guillermo del Toro's Trollhunters-adjacent trilogy, Tales of Arcadia, has revealed a first look of its second installment, 3Below.

DreamWorks Tales of Arcadia: 3Below has a lot of search-engine optimization friendly terms to lead with. DreamWorks! Tales of Arcadia! 3Below! Guillermo del Toro! Trollhunters! Netflix!

Tales of Arcadia is a trilogy series on Netflix created by del Toro and set in his Trollhunters universe. 3Below will be the second installment of this trilogy that began with Trollhunters. The series will end in 2019 with Tales of Arcadia: Wizards. Yes, DreamWorks, del Toro, and Netflix have created a sprawling series in which trolls, aliens, and wizards will all eventually cross paths. It’s the side of an ’80s metal fan’s panel van writ large.

For simply “just” an animated children’s adventure story, this is a pretty big project. That’s why del Toro and some friends took to the New York Comic Con stage to reveal just how big. Here is everything we learned from NYCC2018.

Tales of Arcadia: 3Below Release Date
