Flying Eye Books, an imprint of Nobrow, is thrilled to welcome the Eisner-Award nominated graphic novel series Hilda by Luke Pearson to the silver screen!
Our most popular graphic novel series has been transformed by Silvergate Media, the producers of Octonauts in collaboration with Mercury Filmworks, into an incredible animated adventure. The series follows the journey of a fearless blue-haired girl as she travels from her magical home in the wilderness, filled with elves and giants, to the bustling city of Trolberg. Here, she makes new friends and discovers mysterious creatures who are stranger—and sometimes more dangerous—than she ever expected. Netflix members worldwide joined Hilda in 2018. Season 2 is coming in 2020, so stay tuned!
