A fifteen-year old teenager stumbled upon a Magical Amulet that gave him the title of Trollhunter, defender of the trolls that live below the human town of Arcadia.[5]



Trollhunters is led by Anton Yelchin, Kelsey Grammer and Ron Perlman, and is the final project of Yelchin, who died shortly after recording most of his dialogue.[6] Producer Del Toro refused to replace his recordings.[7]
