Wizards: Tales of Arcadia Release Date, Story Details & Cast

Warning! SPOILERS ahead for 3Below: Tales of Arcadia season 2.

The next installment in Netflix’s Tales of Arcadia is Wizards – here’s everything we know about the upcoming series. The first two series in the animated anthology from Guillermo del Toro and DreamWorks Animation, Trollhunters and 3Below, establish the town of Arcadia and the strange happenings that take place there. With Wizards, the anthology series will come to a close, bringing together characters from both prior shows for a grand finale.

Trollhunters introduces Jim Lake, the first human Trollhunter who along with his friends must protect both the humans and trolls of Arcadia from an ancient evil. In 3Below, two alien royals, Aja and Krel, crash land in Arcadia and must work alongside their human (and one troll) friends to protect their new home from invasion. Now in Wizards, the characters of these two shows will come together in order to defeat some as-of-yet unknown enemy that is threatening to destroy not just Arcadia, but the whole world!

Here’s everything we know and expect for Wizards: Tales of Arcadia.

Wizards: Tales of Arcadia Release Date

Neither Netflix nor DreamWorks Animation has announced a premiere date for Wizards: Tales of Arcadia, but the series is expected to debut on the streaming service in Fall 2019. As the concluding chapter in Tales of Arcadia, it isn’t yet known whether the series will have more than one season. However, given that Trollhunters ran for three seasons, 3Below for two, and with Wizards being the culmination of the entire anthology, it wouldn’t be all that surprising if Wizards is just a one season show.

The Wizards: Tales of Arcadia Cast

As the final chapter in Tales of Arcadia, Wizards is expected to reunite most if not all the characters introduced on 3Below and Trollhunters. This would include Aja (Tatiana Maslany), Krel (Diego Luna), and Varvatos Vex (Nick Offerman) as well as Jim (Emile Hirsch), Claire (Lexi Medrano), Toby (Charlie Saxton), Blinky (Kelsey Grammer), and AAARRRGGHH!!! (Fred Tatasciore). Additionally, the many residents of Arcadia who have had minor roles on both series will likely also appear in Wizards.

As for cast members we know will return for Wizards, only Steve Palchuk (Steven Yeun) and Eli Pepperjack (Cole Sand) are confirmed to appear – making them the only characters to have been in all three Tales of Arcadia series. Also expected to return is Merlin (David Bradley), which makes perfect sense seeing as he’s the only actual wizard to have been so far introduced.

The Story of Wizards: Tales of Arcadia

Specific details about Wizards: Tales of Arcadia‘s story have not been released, but the final scene in 3Below season 2 does hint at what’s to come. In that scene, Toby, Steve, and AAARRRGGHH!!! run into a talking black cat who warns them that the world as they know it is about to end. By now, a world-ending threat in Arcadia is nothing new, but being forewarned about it by a wizard’s familiar doesn’t bode well. Also, the only known wizard is Merlin, and he didn’t have a familiar in Trollhunters let alone a black cat familiar. So who is the cat working for? That’s a question Wizards is sure to answer, possibly even revealing more magic-users in the process.

In addition to that teasing final scene, an earlier moment in 3Below season 2 may provide more clues about what will happen in Wizards. During season 2, episode 11, “Race to Trollmarket”, Toby reaches out to Jim and Blinky for help, and during their conversation (relayed over video) Jim is seen fighting a mysterious figure clad head to toe in white armor. There’s no character who fits that description, but the armor looks reminiscent of the armor worn by both Merlin and Morgana – the evil enchantress and primary villain of Trollhunters. If Morgana has returned, this white knight might be working for her, and it may be she who is threatening to (again) end the world.

Along with these more overt hints at what may be in store on Wizards: Tales of Arcadia, another scene in 3Below season 2 reveals that the Akiridians and trolls actually first met hundreds of years ago. With Del Toro suggesting that Wizards will tie together the mythology of both Trollhunters and 3Below, it seems likely that there are some bigger secrets to still be revealed.

The Real Creepshow 3 Is Tales From The Darkside: The Movie

Considering how bad the actual Creepshow 3 is its little wonder fans consider Tales From The Darkside: The Movie the true third entry. The original Creepshow was a collaboration between filmmaker George A. Romero (Night Of The Living Dead) and Stephen King, and was a loving tribute to the gruesome EC horror comics they both grew up with. Creepshow was an anthology that told five tales of horror and has since become a cult classic.

Both Romero and King took a backseat for Creepshow 2 which was released in 1987. Creepshow 2’s script was written by Romero and based off of King short stories, but the project was instead directed by Michael Gornick. The sequel was originally intended to include five stories like the first movie, though the segments “Pinfall” and “Cat From Hell” were cut due to budget concerns. While Creepshow 2’s middle story “The Raft” is considered a genuinely creepy little horror tale, the follow-up is regarded as inferior to the original.

This is where the line between Creepshow 3 and Tales From The Darkside: The Movie get a little blurry. The success of the original Creepshow briefly led to conversations about adapting it into a TV series, but since George Romero didn’t have complete ownership of the property, he created TV show Tales From The Darkside instead. Like Creepshow, the series was a horror anthology and would end up running for four seasons between 1984 to 1988.

Tales from the Darkside: The Movie arrived in 1990, directed by John Harrison. The movie includes three stories and a wraparound tale and also features an impressive cast, including Julianne Moore (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Christian Slater and Steve Buscemi. The movie also has “Cat From Hell,” the King story previously cut from Creepshow 2. While Tales From The Darkside: The Movie wasn’t a huge hit, it was an effective, entertaining anthology. A Tales From The Darkside sequel was discussed that would have included King’s stories “Pinfall” and “Rainy Season,” but the project was eventually canceled.

Fans got briefly excited when Creepshow III was announced but the project quickly shaped up to be a huge disappointment. Neither George Romero nor Stephen King had any involvement with the eventual 2006 movie, and none of King’s material was adapted for it. Like the first two movies, Creepshow III is an anthology with a comic book wraparound tale, but the film’s low-budget, poor screenplay and bad acting make it something of a chore and the film is often ignored by fans of the franchise.

This has also led to Tales From The Darkside: The Movie being christened the “real” Creepshow 3. It retains the tone and feel of the first two movies and the close production ties between Tales and Creepshow further link them. Even Tom Savini, who provided effects for the franchise and played The Creep in the second movie, labeled Tales From The Darkside: The Movie the true Creepshow 3. While a big budget Creepshow 3 isn’t likely to happen, the franchise is being resurrected in the form of a new TV series from horror streaming service Shudder. Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) will produce and each episode will contain two stories; the show will also adapt King’s disturbing short story “Survivor Type.”

John Carpenter’s Tales for a Halloween Night Anthology Scrapped at Syfy

The planned TV adaptation of John Carpenter’s Tales for a Halloween Night anthology series from Syfy has been scrapped. Based on the book series of the same name, the stories consist of scary tales written by a selection of horror writers, including Carpenter himself.

First published in 2015, Tales for a Halloween Night is a horror anthology series that explores the deep, dark depths of the genre. Alongside the likes of Sandy King, who’s worked with Carpenter on everything from They Live to Ghosts of Mars as a producer, and Steven Hoveke, who worked with Carpenter on The Thing: Artbook, Tales for a Halloween Night includes three separate volumes of standalone short stories. Originally set to be adapted as a TV series for Syfy back in 2017, with Carpenter attached to direct the pilot, it turns out that the anthology won’t get the live-action treatment after all.

Sandy King, president of Stormy Kings Productions, spoke to ComicBook and revealed that the series is no longer happening. She explained that her company and Syfy were not on the same page creatively, which ultimately resulted in the two parties parting ways. Intent on doing justice to the source material and living up to readers’ expectations, she said:

“We had one [project] where SYFY wanted Tales for a Halloween Night but it quickly became evident that they just wanted the title. And I really saw a disaster on the horizon. So I went, ‘No, no, no. This is not a good idea.’ It was a greenlit series but if it’s not gonna be something cool for the fans and for the eventual audience, then I don’t think it’s a good idea to do it.”

While Carpenter has obviously been a household names since the ’70s, starting with Halloween, then continuing with classic horror films like Escape from New York, The Thing, and Christine, the filmmaker had a creative comeback of sorts with last year’s direct Halloween sequel from director David Gordon Green. It was the first film in the Halloween series that Carpenter was involved with since Halloween H20 (he was originally set to direct the film before he dropped out of the project completely). A TV series based on another one of his projects might have seemed like a safe bet for success, but that’s no longer the case.

While it’s certainly disappointing that the series isn’t happening – not only for fans of the books, but for Carpenter fans in general – it’s comforting to see its creative team taking the source material seriously enough to not simply cash in without careful consideration. Following Halloween’s success alone, horror fans can likely expect to see plenty more work inspired by or directly relating to Carpenter, so consider this project falling through a slight stumble. Whether it’s attaching himself to a potential Halloween sequel or creating something wholly original (despite working primarily in music these days), horror fans shouldn’t give up hope.

M. Night Shyamalan’s Tales from the Crypt Reboot Probably Won’t Happen

It’s a sad day for horror fans, as M. Night Shyamalan’s Tales from the Crypt reboot looks like it won’t be happening after all. The original Tales from the Crypt TV series ran on HBO for seven seasons, and even got a few feature-length films as well. The show was based on the comic book series of the same name, which started in the 1950s. Much like the comics, HBO’s Tales from the Crypt functioned as an anthology series, with each episode being introduced and concluded by the Crypt Keeper; a decaying corpse with a dark sense of humor.

In 2016, it was revealed that Shyamalan was producing a reboot of Tales from the Crypt, which would air on TNT. The show was going to be part of a new two-hour horror programming block on the network, but in that same year, TNT announced that Tales from the Crypt was in jeopardy of being canceled due to rights issues. Eventually, the reboot of Tales from the Crypt was indefinitely stalled due to this same issue, but TNT reassured fans that they would revisit the property after the rights to the show were sorted out. Now that even more time has passed, the project looks like it definitely won’t be happening.

While being interviewed by Digital Spy, Shyamalan explained that he thought Tales from the Crypt was officially dead. When asked what happened with his Tales from the Crypt reboot, Shyamalan stated, “We tried everything that we could. That was so mired in people that had rights to it, constantly mired from the original comic books to the people that did the original show and that was a very contentious era for that show and who was involved and all the stuff that had nothing to do with me, a generation before me”, which again reiterates the legal issues TNT has faced when it came to the series.

While Shyamalan has created some duds during his career like The Last Airbender and After Earth, many people still consider him a master of the horror and sci-fi genres. Recently, the director made a secret sequel to his 2000 film Unbreakable called Split, which starred James McAvoy as a man diagnosed with 23 distinct personalities. The third film in the trilogy, Glass, has set a release date for January 2019.

Since the comic books and HBO’s TV show were so beloved by horror fans, the fact that Shyamalan’s reboot won’t come to fruition will be disappointing to a lot of people. Shyamalan seemed to have a genuine passion for the project when the Tales from the Crypt promo video was released online, but he’s seemingly moved onto other projects in his career. Given the success of other anthology series like American Horror Story and Black Mirror, TNT would likely benefit from creating a new version of Tales from the Crypt, but unfortunately, Hollywood legalities have gotten in the way once again.
