NYCC 2016: Dreamworks and Netflix bring fresh animation

Netflix’ animation projects will be coming to NYCC this week, in conjunction with DreamWorks.

Netflix gets animated

DreamWorks Animation and Netflix have both come to be huge names in the entertainment industry. DreamWorks has been for a while now, but Netflix has been wowing viewers with its original shows and animated properties.

And it’s the latter there that’ll be taking center stage at NYCC this week. Namely, the two powerhouses will be talking Trollhunter… and Voltron.

The talks will be taking place at a pair of panel presentations, which’ll be star-studded. The DreamWorks’ Trollhunters panel will have not only creator Guillermo del Toro on hand, but the voice-cast as well. And who might that be? None other than Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman and Steven Yeun. Throw in executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Rodrigo Blaas, and you’ve got a pane not to be missed.


Then there’s Voltron. A legion of fans already watch Voltron, as the show heads into its second Netflix season and they’re probably not signet to be disappointed with this showing. Executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery, and story editor Tim Hedrick will all be present. And they’ll be joined by voice actors Jeremy Shada and Bex Taylor-Klaus. That should scratch the Voltron itch nicely.

Want more? Then you can catch a special signing from Voltron comics publisher Lion’s Forge Comics at booth #1669 and an after party celebrating the show. More interested in Trollhunters? There’s a special event for that too, at the Madison Square Garden theater, a few blocks away.
