Since Diego Luna and Tatiana Maslany popped into Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters as exchange students, fans have known something big was coming to the world of Arcadia. Now, after plenty of teasing and a pilot debut at New York Comic Con, the first trailer for the alien royalty show is here.
The 13-episode season of 3Below: Tales of Arcadia exists in the same universe as GDT’s other Dreamworks Netflix series, but with a different angle on the world.
Hiding out on Earth after a dictator takes over their homeworld, Luna and Maslany’s teen characters are accompanied by a mothership voiced by Glenn Close and a bodyguard voiced by Nick Offerman. The intergalactic immigrants must face culture clash on top of the alien bounty hunters after their heads, all while attempting to fix their busted ship and save their home.
And it just so happens they landed in Arcadia. Check out the trailer:
The hilarious transformation of the aliens into those ignored by dwellers of the “mud planet” (a Latino, a girl, and an old man) is just the first resonant social gag in the series, which looks to inject plenty of relevant commentary into its humorous sci-fi adventure.
Alongside the royal duo and their cadre, Andy Garcia, Nick Frost, Alon Aboutboul, Chris Obi, Uzo Aduba, Cheryl Hines, Tom Kenny, Hayley Atwell, Danny Trejo, and Ann Dowd will supplement the other, Trollhunter-y denizens of Arcadia (like Emile Hirsch, Charlie Saxton, Lexi Medrano, Steven Yeun, Cole Sands, and Kelsey Grammer) to create a vibrant world (and off-world) for fans to enjoy.
The first season of 3Below: Tales of Arcadia hits Netflix on Dec. 21.
