Netflix is targeting older kids this September, with its new animated series Hilda – and a new trailer promises something really quite charming.
A production of Silvergate Media, the makers of Octonauts, in collaboration with Mercury Filmworks, Hilda transforms the Eisner-Award nominated graphic novels by Luke Pearson and published by Nobrow into an animated TV adventure. The series follows the journey of the fearless blue-haired girl as she travels from her home in a vast magical wilderness full of elves and giants to the bustling city of Trolberg, where she makes new friends and discovers mysterious creatures who are stranger – and sometimes more dangerous – than she ever expected.
Netflix members worldwide will be able to join Hilda on her escapades from Friday 21st September. Here’s the trailer:
Hilda: Season 1 is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
Netflix renews B: The Beginning and sets Hilda for September
13th June 2018
Netflix has renewed B: The Beginning for a second season, the streaming giant announced at the Annecy International Festival of Animated Film this week.
The prestigious festival, which is dedicated to animation, is no stranger to the streaming giant, which unveiled Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters there back in 2016. At this year’s event, Melissa Cobb (Vice President of Kids & Family, Netflix) and Aram Yacoubian (Director of International Originals, Kids & Family, Netflix) led a conversation with animated content creators Fernanda Frick, Andy Coyle (Hilda) and Kazuto Nakazawa (B: The Beginning).
B: The Beginning is set in a world powered by advanced technology, crime and action sweep through the archipelagic nation of Cremona. Chief among the major players is “Killer B” – a serial killer who has thrown the city into chaos. The stories of Koku, the protagonist, Keith, a legendary investigator of the Royal Investigation Service, and a mysterious criminal organization intertwine on the path to reach their objectives. A wide variety of unforgettable characters surround them on the journey, as they attempt to stop a chain of horrific crimes in this suspense drama.
Produced by Rui Kuroki, Kazuto Nakazawa and Production I.G, with Nakazawa and Yoshinobu Yamakawa at the helm, the series will return to Netflix for a second season, with Hiroaki Hirata and Yuki Kaji reprising their roles in the vocal cast.
Alongside B’s news, Netflix also confirmed a September release date for Hilda.
Hilda follows the adventures of a fearless blue-haired girl as she travels from her home in a vast magical wilderness full of elves and giants, to the bustling city of Trolberg, where she meets new friends and mysterious creatures who are stranger – and more dangerous – than she ever expected.
Based on the Eisner-Award nominated graphic novels by Luke Pearson, Hilda has delighted readers with her bold, adventurous spirit and vividly imagined world. Fans of the comics and new viewers alike will see Hilda brought to life in stunning animation from Mercury Filmworks.
Produced by Silvergate Media with Kurt Mueller as Executive Producer and Andy Coyle as Director, the series is written by showrunner Stephanie Simpson and stars Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones).
Season 1 of Hilda will premiere on Netflix on Friday 21st September. You can see the first image from the series above.
