It has been noted that each time you talk of an animated series on the television, you feel that it is a cartoon show which is meant for kids. However, this perception has now started to change. ‘Hilda’ is one of the shows that will help you to bring about a new outlook on your life. Starting off under the genre of fantasy, with elements of adventure and comedy, ‘Hilda’ is a television series that airs in the animated form and is based on the graphic novel series of the same name. Luke Pearson has created both the comic series as well as the show. The series keeps you hooked on as you go on an adventure through distant and imaginary lands with Hilda, the famous blue haired girl, who travels the world of Trolberg, and there she confronts the most dangerous monsters.
‘Hilda’ is a British Canadian show that airs on Netflix and first premiered on September 21, 2018. This series is the latest addition to an ever-increasing library of impressive animated shows that includes the likes of ‘BoJack Horseman‘, ‘Disenchantment‘, ‘Castlevania‘, and ‘Carmen Sandiego‘. Naturally, the show has received high praise from fans and critics alike, who have remarked on the writing, vocal performances, characters, and animation. Although Hilda arguably remains the show’s best quality, she is matched by the quirky characters and the endearing world of fantasy to which she belongs.
Hilda Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘Hilda’ includes Bella Ramsey, Ilan Galkoff, Kaisa Hammarlund, and Reece Pockney. The titular role of Hilda is the voice of none other than Bella Ramsey, who we last saw in the heroic role of Lyanna Mormont on ‘Game of Thrones‘. ‘The Worst Witch‘ star has been confirmed to return for the next season as well. Other than this, we can hear the tones from Rasmus Hardiker as Alfur Aldric, Daisy Haggard as mum or Johanna, Nina Sosanya as well as Reece Pockney, as Trevor, and Kaisa Hammarlund to name a few. ‘Hilda’ has some talented people on board who will return for the upcoming season and if needed, more people will be roped in to do justice to the animated figures.
Hilda Plot: What is it about?
‘Hilda’ is indeed high on the drama considering it is a’ program for kids. The TV series follows the paths of the original comic books. The main plot follows the journey of a girl named Hilda. She is a girl who has blue hair, and this is what sets her apart from the others. Her life is full of adventures, and she is fearless in all her encounters along the way. Her constant companion in every quest is her deer-fox, Twig. Together, they travel from the magical wilderness to a bustling city that is known as Trolberg. This is where she can conquer the most dangerous and ferocious monsters. The entire story is set in 20th century Scandinavia, and Hilda has other friends, like Alfur, a small elf. In Trolberg, Hilda begins to realize there might be more to city life when she finds new friends in David and Frida.
‘Hilda’ is a perfect juxtaposition of fantasy, a bold and adventurous spirit, and also a world of awe and wonder. It serves not only to entice children, but also to make you find an all-new spirit in another worldview. It comes with a promise and a possibility of the fulfillment of a teenage dream. And that is why it is so unique. Breaking the barriers of a small animation film, ‘Hilda’ is all about an expedition with a promise of the unknown.
Collider sums up the show well, saying, “Regardless of age, Hilda invites viewers to join in the mystery and thrill of adventure and to find the magic in the introduction of these many creatures, and some of their curious habits, in an upbeat and wonderful world. Though Hilda must grow up and accept city life, she need not put aside her childlike wonder. Neither should we.” The best part of the show is that it is completely closed and does not have any winks or nods to the real world. Hilda’s world is a unit in itself with its own rules and regulations.
