Silvergate Media’s Hilda and the Mountain King will be Hilda’s third and final season, in the form of a movie. The 2D-animated adventure film is scheduled for release on Netflix on December 30, 2021. It picks up right where Hilda’s second season finale left off.
For those who are unaware, Netflix’s Hilda series has been following a graphic novel series of the same name by Luke Pearson. Hilda and the Mountain King is based on the sixth book that was released in September 2019.
Set to be released on December 30, 2021, the trailer for Hilda and the Mountain King dropped on December 3, 2021. It offered a peek into what can be expected from the extended movie special that marks the third and final season of the Hilda series on Netflix.
The plot of Hilda and the Mountain King picks up after the events of The Stone Forest where Hilda and Baba switched species, with Baba turning into a human and Hilda into a troll. In the 2021 film, Hilda goes on an adventure to find a way to become human again.
Meanwhile, her mother Johanna is looking for her in the mountains. To prevent the citizens of Trolberg from being invaded by trolls, Hilda must find a way to get back home as a human.
