Information on Hilda
Based on the Eisner-Award nominated graphic novels by Luke Pearson and published by Nobrow, Silvergate Media, in collaboration with Mercury Filmworks, transforms “Hilda” into an incredible animated adventure for older kids.
Hilda follows the adventures of a fearless blue-haired girl as she travels from her home in a vast magical wilderness full of elves and giants, to the bustling city of Trollberg, where she meets new friends and discovers mysterious creatures who are stranger – and more dangerous – than she ever expected.
