The Norwegian film “Troll” is currently a hit on Netflix. But could there soon be a “Troll 2”? The producers of the feature film answered the question.
Troll is a hit on Netflix
Available on Netflix worldwide since December 1, the Norwegian film Troll does not leave the top 10 of the platform. Realized by Roar Uthaug (The Wave, tomb Raider), it tops the list of the most watched films all over the world, including in France. It even broke the record for the most watched non-English language film with almost 76 million hours viewed in just four days.
The plot of the feature film is set in Norway. After an explosion in a mountain, a mythical creature comes out of Earth, to the amazement of the first witnesses. Paleobotanist Nora Tidemann (Ine Marie Wilmann) is called in to investigate this mysterious creature which until then only existed in children’s stories and the stories told to him by his father Tobias (Gard B. Eldsvold). Faced with the threat posed by this stone giant, the government has no choice but to launch an offensive.
An open end… towards a Troll 2?
If you stayed until the end of the credits of Troll, you saw that the post-credits scene announces that the threat is not removed. Indeed, in the cave in the middle of the mountain, the earth rumbles again, suggesting that a new monster will appear. A little before, Nora is questioned about the fact that there may be other trolls. Everything seems to indicate that the film will have a sequel. But what is it really?
Faced with such success, it’s hard to imagine that Netflix won’t give us a Troll 2. Asked about the subject, producers Kristian Strand Sinkerud and Espen Horn revealed what it was:
As producers, we always have the ambition to go beyond a single film. Obviously, we have the ambition to make one, or even two sequels, but it depends on the reception of the public (…) We can say this: it was a great collaboration with Roar and Netflix and we would love to repeat the experience
they told the site Whats On Netflix.
Given the film’s viewing record, it now only seems like a formality for Netflix to formalize a sequel.
