Wizards: Netflix’s Tales of Arcadia continues this August
James R | On 26, Jul 2020
Guillermo del Toro’s epic animated saga Tales of Arcadia concludes this August with its final TV chapter, Wizards.
The saga began several years ago with Trollhunters, a charming adventure about a boy (Anton Yelchin, later Emile Hirsch) who found a hidden world beneath his home town of Arcadia and wound up locked in a troll battle over the future of humankind.
The story continued with 3Below, based in the same world – the same town, even – and focusing on two characters who first appeared in Season 3 of Trollhunters: Princess Aja and her brother, Prince Krel, voiced by Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany and Diego Luna. Two students who unwittingly came to the aid of the Trollhunters as they fought Morgana, they then became the leads themselves.
With their home planet torn apart by Civil War, the Princess and Prince found themselves marooned on the most backwater, primitive world in the galaxy: Earth. The three took on human guises to conceal their alien form as they searched for a safe passage back to their home planet, but while searching, they developed a real affection for Earth and its inhabitants.
Now, characters from Trollhunters and 3 Below are combining for the final chapter in the trilogy, which sees conflict brewing between the human, troll and magical worlds. A time-bending adventure to medieval Camelot? What could possibly go wrong?
Wizards: Tales of Arcadia arrives on 7th August. Here’s the trailer:
Wizards: Tales of Arcadia is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £9.99 monthly subscription.
