Get ready for Trolls World Tour!
Based on the popular Troll doll toy line, the first Trolls movie was released in 2016 and happened to be a great success taking in $347 million at the global box office and Justin Timberlake's catchy tune “Can’t Stop the Feeling” earned an Oscar nod. Film critics, too were impressed by the animated film, praising the animation for its playful colour visuals and kid-friendly story lines and themes referring to expressing emotions and self-acceptance.
The Trolls are back for another DreamWorks Animation with the ‘Trolls World Tour’ launching on the 10th of April! Directed by Walt Dohrn and co-directed by David P.Smith who both worked on the first Trolls movie. The Trolls World Tour features Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) and their discovery that there are six different Troll tribes spread across different lands, with each of them devoted to a specific music genre; Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop, and Rock. The plot thickens when Queen Barb, (Rachel Bloom) of the Rock land sets out to destroy all other types of music. Branch, Poppy and their other troll friends take it upon themselves to save the day and prevent Queen Barb from taking over with her Rock and Roll ways!
The trailers show various clips of the iconic Trolls putting their own spin on well-known pop songs. It also seems that the Trolls sequel will continue to explore the strange concept of Troll biology, and of course there will be plenty of celeb voice cameos throughout!
