Tales of Arcadia movie, Rise of the Titans, is coming in 2021

While I have sadly not had a chance to watch the third chapter of the Trollhunters sage, Wizards, I am very excited to do so, however, it seems that I was wrong in my thinking about the story.


Well, I, like so many, was under the impression that Wizards was the third – and final – instalment of the Tale of Arcadia story, but it seems that, no, there is another part of the story to come… and this time it’s a movie!

Yes, after six seasons of Trollhunters, 3 Below and Wizards, the story is not yet over, with Netflix announcing that in 2021 Rise of the Titans will arrive on Netflix, a new chapter of the saga that will bring all the cast of the three shows together.

And, while I can’t comment on Wizards yet, I adore Trollhunters and 3 Below, I can’t wait to see this.

As per Netflix:

“Team Trollhunters committed, about a decade ago, to try and push the boundaries of 3D CGI animation made for TV. We outlined a vast trilogy of interconnecting mythology and characters that we always hoped could culminate with a massive “all-stars” reunion,” says creator and executive producer Guillermo del Toro.

“DreamWorks Animation and Netflix both shared the very ambitious notion of doing the three series, interwoven and then finishing off with a bigger, epic-sized feature film to top it all off.”

The cast for Rise of the Titans includes Emile Hirsch (​Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood​) as Jim, Lexi Medrano (Trollhunters​) as Claire, Charlie Saxton (​Hung, Bandslam​) as Toby, Kelsey Grammer in his Emmy Award-winning role as Blinky, Alfred Molina (​Frozen II​) as Archie, Steven Yeun (​Burning, The Walking Dead) as Steve, Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead) as Stuart, Colin O’Donoghue (​Once Upon A Time) as Douxie, Diego Luna (​Narcos: Mexico​) as Krel, Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) as Aja and Nick Offerman (Parks & Recreation, Fargo) as Vex. Additional cast members include Cole Sand, Fred Tatasciore, Brian Blessed, Kay Bess, Piotr Michael, James Hong, Tom Kenny, Angel Lin, Amy Landecker, Jonathan Hyde, Bebe Wood, Laraine Newman, Grey Griffin and Cheryl Hines.

See you all in 2021 again, Arcadia fans!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
