This New Netflix Trailer Is Trolling Everyone


Netflix has been very busy this week. It’s because it’s Geeked Week (opens in a new tab)Netflix’s annual show that’s packed with program announcements, new seasons, and new movies.

And one of the most interesting seems to be the new Netflix movie Troll, which despite its name is not an Elon Musk biopic. Nope! It’s about a troll, and judging by the trailer (opens in a new tab) he is a very big and scary troll.

Netflix Troll: is it good?

We don’t have much to go on because, bordering on a troll, the trailer is just a teaser rather than a real big reveal. Here’s what Netflix has to say:

Deep in the mountain of Dovre, something gigantic awakens after being trapped for a thousand years. Destroying everything in its path, the creature quickly approaches the capital of Norway. But how do you stop something you thought only existed in Norwegian folklore?

The trailer was just released and it has already amassed 12,000 likes, with many commenters hoping it will be similar to the pre-existing Troll Hunter movie. It’s not currently on Netflix, but the service has DreamWorks’ Trollhunters if you prefer your mythical monsters family-friendly.

Troll will be released later this year, and according to director Roar Uthaug, it’s been a long time: “Troll is an idea that’s been in my mind for over 20 years,” he says. “To finally be able to make it happen with the enthusiastic and ambitious folks at Netflix and Motion Blur is truly a dream come true. I can’t wait to unleash this Norwegian monster on the world.
