Netflix 'Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans': Meet Emile Hirsch and others from animated film
Netflix's official synopsis of 'Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans' makes it evident that it's going to be an epic conclusion to the Arcadian adventures. "The heroes of Arcadia must band together to protect humanity from the evil Arcane Order, who wield their dark and uncontrollable magic to summon ancient Titans that threaten to destroy the world," it reads. Expect magic, more magic, and then some.
Before you catch the movie, it would be a good idea to binge on 'Trollhunters', '3Below', and 'Wizards'. It'll help set up a context for the movie.

'Wizards: Tales of Arcadia': Meet Stephanie Beatriz, James Faulkner and John Rhys-Davies, the new cast members of the Netflix series
Emile Hirsch as Jim Lake
Previously, Jim was voiced by Anton Yelchin. After he was killed in a freak accident, Hirsch stepped in to finish what the Russian actor had started. Born in Palms, California, he grew up in Los Angeles and Santa Fe, and New Mexico. He was introduced to acting while he was in school. His first acting gig was at age 11. He scored a role in 'Kindred: The Embraced' (1996). He is also known for his work in 'The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys' (2002).
Charlie Saxton as Toby Domzalski
Easily one of the goofy characters from the trilogy, Toby may make errors but is also sometimes the smartest person in the room. He is a best friend, a warrior, and has his heart in the right place. The voice behind Toby, Saxton, was born in Philadelphia and is an actor and producer, who is also known for his work in 'Hung' (2009) and 'Betas' (2013).
Lexi Medrano as Claire Nuñez
Medrano brings out the confusion, shock, and vulnerability in Claire's voice beautifully. Even though she has a few titles to her credit, the actress has added depth to the character with her charming voice. She is also known for 'Lost Tapes' (2008) and 'Modern Family' (2009).
Fred Tatasciore as AAARRRGGHH!!!
He is a voice actor and animator known for his work across film, television, and games. His voice has regularly featured in 'Family Guy', 'American Dad', and 'The Cleveland Show'. For Marvel, he has voiced Hulk/ Bruce Banner, Beast, and Crossbones in several animated roles. In 'Trollhunters' he plays AAARRRGGHH!!!, an integral part of the OG band of heroes and Toby's BFF.
Colin O'Donoghue as Douxie
Born in Ireland, O'Donoghue initially attended Dundalk Grammar School and later enrolled in The Gaiety School of Acting in Dublin. As a teenager, he traveled to Paris to learn French. As you may have guessed, he started early and was mainly juggling theatre and television work in his hometown and the UK. In 2003, he won the Irish Film and Television Award for his portrayal of Norman in 'Home For Christmas'.
Kelsey Grammer as Blinky
Much like his character in the 'Trollhunters', Grammer comes with experience. Born in Saint Thomas to musician parents, Grammer has won six Emmy Awards, mainly for his role in 'Frasier' (1993). He is also known for his work in 'Cheers' (1982), and 'Wings' (1990). In the 'Trollhunters' trilogy, he has served as a mentor and guide to Jim, who was initially hesitant to be the first human troll hunter.
Joining the OG band of heroes in the battle finale are Tatiana Maslanyas as Aja, Nick Offerman as Vex, Alfred Molina as Archie, and Diego Luna as Krel.
'Trollhunters: Rise of The Titans' premieres on Netflix on July 21, Wednesday.
