3Below: Tales of Arcadia Review 2018 TV-Show Series Cast Crew Online
Creator: Guillermo del Toro
Stars: Alon Aboutboul, Uzo Aduba, Hayley Atwell
Review: Guillermo del Toro and Diego Luna are living their best lives. At this month’s New York Comic Con, they are chummy—hugging and exuding such smiles that you’d think they’re two bros gathered to catch up rather than an executive producer and voice actor doing press for Dreamworks Tales of Arcadia: 3Below, their upcoming animated series on Netflix.
And, while Del Toro is now an Academy Award-winning director, he’s still the same affable nerd behind the cross-genre Tales of Arcadia story that began with the three-season, Emmy-winning Trollhunters, and continues with the aliens-on-earth chapter 3Below.
Produced by del Toro, Marc Guggenheim, and Rodrigo Blaas, 3Below stars the vocal talents of Luna, Tatiana Maslany, Glenn Close, and Nick Offerman (as well as Nick Frost, Andy Garcia, Haley Atwell, and Dany Trejo). It follows a teenage prince and princess, who escape their homeward followed an invasion, and are joined by their bodyguard, and sentient “mother” ship. They seek to hide from bounty hunters by posing as the most overlooked people on Earth: a Latino boy, a girl, and an elderly man (with the ship posing as a house).
Set in the same town (Arcadia) as Trollhunters, 3Below will cross over with the former, and connect to Chapter Three, titled Wizards. However, while connected, 3Below stands on its own, at the same time taking inspiration from predecessors.
Guillermo del Toro who is the creator and executive producer of 3Below, said that Tales is not a monster-of-the-week show. Instead, he modeled it after more serialized “gold standards,” such as Gravity Falls, that had a plan from the start.
Fresh from their New York Comic Con panel, where del Toro enjoyed scooping up a handful of birthday cake presented to him on stage, Luna and GDT joined Den of Geek to talk about the DNA of the 3Below.
GDT: There was a series I saw as a kid by Osamu Tezuka. In Mexico it was called The Wonderful Trio with a dog, a bunny, and a horse [which were aliens posing as animals on Earth]. I loved that. There’s gentle, really beautiful humanistic examples of creation in that series. And Tezuka can be really tragic. He goes into real dark places. But that’s what I remember the anime of my childhood having.
