Ever seen a monster that popped out straight from a folklore get accused of a string of deaths but seemingly has a heart? Netflix’s ‘Troll’ (2022) was an instant hit upon its premiere, because of its very premise and the intense action packed scenes it came with. But what made it so popular? Perhaps it was the same reason that made King Kong adored, or what turned Godzilla into a victim rather than an instigator of violence. The Troll in the movie is portrayed with a great amount of sympathy that almost makes it impossible to see the creature as the villain. Now, with ‘Troll 2’ set to hit the OTT platform anytime, people are beyond excited as this upcoming film might just gift its viewers with the full truth about Trolls and their oppressions.
Roar Uthaug, the renowned Norwegian film director will be reprising his role for the upcoming feature film alongside actors Ine Marie Wilmann and Kim Falck. ‘Troll 2’ will be shot in Oslo, Norway, the setting for the first film. Also, Espen Horn and Kristian Strand Sinkerud will be joining the crew for the film as its producers while Espen Aukan will supposedly serve as its writer.
What to Expect?
The first film in the series ended with Nora and Andreas wanting to save the Troll but failing to do so as the Troll gets killed due to its weakness surrounding sunlight. However, the movie did share a snippet of a possible rebellion of Trolls which the upcoming feature film might focus on. The audience will also get to see more on the Troll Clan and potential new characters. With the government seeking to eradicate any perceived threat, the upcoming feature film will showcase people at opposite sides of morality.
Not much is known regarding the release date for the film, but ‘Troll 2’ will be premiering soon enough.
Trolls are mythical creatures from Norwegian Folklore that depict them as beings who dwell in caves, perceived to be wild and evil. There has been several demonstrations of these beings in fantasy series such as ‘The Hobbit’ and the ‘Harry Potter’ series. The Troll in ‘Troll’ is instead portrayed with a humane side whose clan was eradicated by the church. It will be entertaining to see how the Trolls does indeed take their revenge, if at all that is in the cards for the upcoming sequel.
With the increasing popularity of Norwegian entertainers inspired from Old Norse myths such as ‘Ragnarok’ and Marvel’s ‘Thor’ series, Netflix’s ‘Troll’ certainly lives up to the hype and the upcoming film is expected to be no different.
