A centerpiece of the “Star Wars” movies and a “Game of Thrones” queen are among the actors who are joining the voice cast of the computer-animated Netflix fantasy series “Trollhunters.”
Netflix announced that it is bringing aboard Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, along with Lena Headey, who plays Cersei on “Game of Thrones,” and veteran British actor David Bradley — “Harry Potter’s” Argus Filch. They’ll be a part of the lineup for season two.
“Trollhunters,” created by Guillermo del Toro, unspooled a 26-episode first season last December, with a star-studded cast that included Anton Yelchin, Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, Amy Landecker and Charlie Saxton. Yelchin, who was killed at age 27 in a freak accident outside his home in Studio City, Calif., in June 2016, plays the title role in the series, and reportedly recorded enough dialogue before his death to continue in season two as reluctant hero Jim Lake, the first human Trollhunter.
Season two of the DreamWorks series, which reportedly will consist of 13 episodes, will premiere later this year. Please click here for all the details in the Netflix announcement, along with a trailer for the series.
