A brand new clip (titled 'Scum of the Earth') from DreamWorks’ Trollhunters Part 2 has been officially released online. The Netflix animated series was created by Guillermo del Toro (director of Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, and The Shape of Water, among other films), based on the novel of the same name that del Toro cowrote with Daniel Kraus.
Debuting on the streaming giant last year, the fantasy series quickly made an impression and garnered a following of its own. Starring the late Anton Yelchin as protagonist Jim, Trollhunters' narrative follows the adventure of Jim and his friend Toby, as Jim (at first, reluctantly) sets out on a journey to become the first human Trollhunter after coming across a mysterious amulet that bestows him the title. A skeptic at first, Jim eventually came to terms with his new responsibility and embarks on an adventure that leads him down the Darklands, in an effort to keep the town of Arcadia safe.
The trailer for Trollhunters Part 2 dropped last month and provided fans of the cartoon series with some hints about where the Trollhunters would lead Jim next, on his continuing mission to battle the evil trolls. Claire and Toby will eventually join the fun as they get their own personal mission in season 2. Now, a brand new clip from Trollhunters Part 2 has been released online, providing more context for how this new season will play out. You can watch that video in the space above.
Here is the official synopsis for Trollhunters Part 2:
For centuries, a grand clash between good and evil has been waging between the the trolls beneath our feet. Join Jim and friends as they battle the evil Trolls of the Darklands in Trollhunters Season 2 by master storyteller Guillermo del Toro.
