INTERVIEW: THE BARBARIAN AND THE TROLL creators on making a puppet comedy during the pandemic

Comic News

Nickelodeon’s new puppet comedy show The Barbarian and the Troll has arrived. The series follows Evan, a bridge troll in search of adventure, and Brendar, a fierce female warrior on a quest to defeat the evil demon who has imprisoned her brother. In the premiere of The Barbarian and the Troll, Evan the troll decides to burn his bridge and venture out into the world of Gothmoria for the first time to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming a singer.  He soon meets Brendar, who had been expelled from the Royal Order of Warrior Princesses and is now known as a “feared and revered” barbarian.  After Evan convinces Brendar to bring him on her quest to vanquish the evil demon, they cross treacherous terrain to confront bizarre and magical creatures and encounter an eclectic puppet cast of wacky characters.

Last Tuesday, March 30th Nickelodeon hosted a special drive-in screening premiere of The Barbarian and the Troll at Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena. Series Co-Creators and Executive Producers, Mike Mitchell and Drew Massey (who also performs Evan the troll) were in attendance and answered questions submitted by The Beat ahead of time.

Watch The Beat’s exclusive chat with Mitchell and Massey about their professional and personal relationship over the past three decades, what went into changing the original show’s title, and the experience working on the show during the pandemic for the past year.
