I am so excited to see the next series in the Tales of Arcadia series! In only a few short days we will have Tales of Arcadia: Wizards to watch on Netflix! This is the third in the trilogy of shows from Guillermo Del Toro. We have watched everything that has come before like Trollhunters and 3Below. These are some amazing shows with fantastic storytelling. Now in the final chapter we have wizards added and we will finally get some answers to why Arcadia is such a hotbed for strangeness.
Here is the official description of the series and the trailer.
Following Trollhunters and the second series 3Below, Wizards marks the final chapter in the trilogy that brings together the three disparate worlds of trolls, aliens and wizards. In the newest installment, wizard-in-training Douxie (Colin O’Donoghue) and the heroes of Arcadia embark on a time-bending adventure to medieval Camelot that leads to an apocalyptic battle for the control of magic that will determine the fate of these supernatural worlds that have now converged.
Created and executive produced by del Toro, Wizards is also executive produced by Marc Guggenheim and Chad Hammes while Chad Quandt & Aaron Waltke serve as co-executive producers. DreamWorks Tales of Arcadia: Wizards sets out to conclude the stories of Trollhunters and 3Below with an epic time-traveling story that will excite old and new fans alike.
Wizards features an all-star cast, including returning fan favorites as well as new additions. Returning are Colin O’Donoghue (Once Upon A Time) as Merlin’s apprentice Douxie; Emile Hirsch (Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood) as Jim; Lexi Medrano (Trollhunters) as Claire; Charlie Saxton (Hung, Bandslam) as Toby; Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead, Okja) as Steve; David Bradley (Harry Potter, Game of Thrones) as Merlin; Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) as Morgana; Fred Tatasciore (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Aaarrrgghh!!!; Clancy Brown (Billions) as Gunmar, Diego Luna (Narcos: Mexico) as Krel; Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as Dictatious; and Kelsey Grammer in his Emmy Award-winning role as Blinky.
Joining the series are Alfred Molina (Frozen II) as Douxie’s shape-shifting familiar Archie, Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) as troublemaker troll Callista, James Faulkner (Game of Thrones) as legendary ruler of Camelot King Arthur, and John Rhys Davies (Lord of the Rings) as Galahad.
There will soon be a video game coming soon that has all of Arcadia in one! I cannot wait to play!
Later this year, fans can dive into an all-new story in DreamWorks Trollhunters Defenders of Arcadia, a brand new video game that takes place between the three distinct worlds of the Tales of Arcadia universe, and acts as a key narrative beat that unifies the trilogy. Featuring an all-star voice cast that includes the voice work from the show’s talent including Emile Hirsch, Charlie Saxton, Lexi Medrano and David Bradley, DreamWorks Trollhunters Defenders of Arcadia will launch September 25, 2020 on Nintendo Switch™, Playstation® 4, Xbox One and PC Digital.
