Netflix confirms sequel to record-breaking TrollNetflix

Netflix has confirmed that a sequel will be coming out to one of its most successful movies of all time: Troll.

The first movie was released in 2022 and followed a gigantic creature that woke up after a thousand years in captivity. The creature wreaks havoc on its path towards Oslo.

The film became a massive hit for Netflix and is still the most-watched non-English language original Netflix movie to this day.

Meanwhile, producers Espen Horn and Kristian Strand Sinkerud said that the Troll sequel will be "again spinning on a Norwegian fairy tale figure, played, directed and produced by Norwegians."
