Troll Bridge – Watch the trailer for a fan film based in Terry Pratchett’s Discworld

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail

Troll Bridge is an epic short film based on a fable written by Terry Pratchett. Set in the phenomenally successful Discworld series, Troll Bridge is about the world’s last Barbarian hero, Cohen the Barbarian, (now at the age of 87) embarking on a suicide mission to battle a bridge troll in mortal combat.

To boost the quota of epic-ness in Troll Bridge, a short prologue scene was written (which Terry Pratchett contributed some dialogue for) has already been shot. This prologue introduces Cohen in his prime, as a young man battling several armies at once. This scene was built to counterbalance and strengthen the intimacy of the later scenes with Cohen, empowering the viewers to appreciate and relate to the challenges of age that Cohen now finds himself in. For all intents and purposes – Cohen’s journey to Death Bridge in which the troll resides, heralds the expectation that it will his last. To adequately depict Cohen at the end of adventure – it’s important to show him at the beginning.

The new trailer has been released and you can watch it below.

Cohen the Barbarian is played by Don Bridges.

If you’d like to read the original story, you can still find it in print within A Blink of the Screen, an excellent anthology of Terry Pratchett’s short fiction.
