3Below: Tales of Arcadia is an American computer-animated science fantasy television series produced by DreamWorks Animation, and is the second installment of Guillermo del Toro's Tales of Arcadia trilogy.[2] The 13-episode first season was released on December 21, 2018 on Netflix.


Two royal extraterrestrial siblings, Princess Aja and Prince Krel of House Tarron, their doglike pet named Luug, and their bodyguard, Varvatos Vex, escape from their home planet of Akiridion-5 and crashland on Earth, in the city of Arcadia. There, the aliens adjust to human culture and try to fix their spaceship to return and take back their home planet, which is being taken over by an evil dictator known as General Val Morando, who has already sent out intergalactic bounty hunters to find and catch the prince and princess.[3]


Aja and Krel also appeared in the Trollhunters episodes "In Good Hands", and "The Eternal Knight Pt. 1".
