WATCH: Full trailer arrives for Netflix’s Tales of Arcadia: 3Below

December 13th, 2018 by Marc Comments

The next chapter in the fantastic Tales of Arcadia trilogy, 3Below, is just over a week away…

Hard to believe, but we’ve left behind (for now) the Trollhunters and are gearing up to meet an all new team of… aliens?

We met them at the end of Trollhunters last season and now they are getting a whole series to themselves… check out the new, full trailer below.

3Below is the second chapter in del Toro’s larger Tales of Arcadia trilogy. Where the previous series focused on a secret underground civilization of Trolls, this new chapter takes to the skies where we find two royal teenage aliens and their bodyguard on the run from intergalactic bounty hunters when their home planet is overtaken by an evil dictator.

When they crash land in Arcadia, the same town where the events of Trollhunters take place, they struggle to blend in and adapt to the bizarre world of high school all while attempting to repair their ship and return home.

It expands the world previously established in Trollhunters but manages to strike its own distinct tone, with a bigger emphasis on comedy as these three, wacky fish out of water try to adjust to life on Earth.

3Below has a talented voice cast, featuring familiar names like Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black), Diego Luna (Rogue One), Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction), and Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation). The main title theme was composed by electronic music act The Crystal Method.

The series is set to premiere on Netflix on Friday, December 21st.

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….
