Fans of the hit TV series can expect all-new content recorded specifically for the game from stars of the Netflix series including Emile Hirsch as Jim Lake Jr, David Bradley as Merlin, Charlie Saxton as Toby and Lexi Medrano as Claire.

“It’s been a blast voicing Toby throughout the Arcadia series, and bringing that character to life in a video game is beyond exciting to me,” said Charlie Saxton, voice of Toby Domzalski in DreamWorks Trollhunters Defender of Arcadia. Emile Hirsch, who voices Jim Lake Jr., the lead protagonist of the series’ and video game, said “Jim is a really special character and I’m very proud that we are able to be part of a brand new adventure for a whole new audience of Trollhunter fans”
