Guillermo Del Toro is bringing his dark and twisted brand of filmmaking to the family-friendly Disney franchise after signing on to become the "creative force" behind a new horror animation venture.
The Pan's Labyrinth director will take charge of the company's new Disney Double Dare You label and his first project will be Trollhunters.
He says, "I love to take audiences into fantastic new worlds and provide them with some anxious moments in the process.
"It is part of the Disney canon to create thrilling, unforgettable moments and villains in all their classic films. It is my privilege for Double Dare You to continue in this tradition."
