Everything about this guy screams ‘desperate’”.

‘Trollhunters’ Review: Guillermo del Toro Takes to Animation With Style in His Eye-Popping Netflix Kids Series

‘Trollhunters’ Review: Guillermo del Toro Takes to Animation With Style in His Eye-Popping Netflix Kids Series
Guillermo del Toro is a visionary. The director behind “Pan’s Labyrinth,” “Hellboy,” “Pacific Rim,” and more has never failed to astound us with the visual presentation of his pieces. So creative and bold is the detail-orientated filmmaker that his work was recently on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art as a temporary exhibit.

No one has ever questioned del Toro’s eye, so his first foray as a creator and director in the animated world set expectations fairly high. Sure, children’s entertainment doesn’t get the same kind of buzz as its adult counterparts — when was the last time you got excited about a kids show, other than “The Adventures of Puss in Boots”? — and del Toro’s first credited creation for the small screen (“The Strain”) didn’t exactly set the world on fire. But “Trollhunters” promised an opportunity to see how the director

Trollhunters Season 1 Review

Four episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

Guillermo del Toro’s kaleidoscopic imagination is on full display in Trollhunters, a rich gift of an animated series arriving on Netflix later this month. It’s in the depiction of trolls as hulking and metamorphic (yet predictably endearing) creatures, birthed seemingly from the earth itself, shoulders erupting in sprouts of grass or smoothly carved from dark obsidian. It’s in the visualization of said trolls’ subterranean world, a crystalline treasure-trove kingdom that draws upon every vivid shade the animators’ palettes had available (and likely created a few). And yet del Toro’s approach and ideology are most evident not just in those striking optical executions but also in the sense of astonishment and joy with which the series itself regards them.

Trollhunters is rightly a thing of youthful wonderment, a show that’s enamored of its own candy-colored vision and fully expects
