Trolls holiday release date

‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ Season 6 Coming to Netflix in April 2019

Dreamworks

The release date for Trolls: The Beat Goes On! season 6 has been announced for April 9th, 2019 on Netflix across the world.

Dreamworks and Netflix continue to pump out a solid stream of content in 2019 with titles like Captain Underpants and Voltron already getting an update with the promise of plenty more throughout the year.

Trolls The Beat Goes On! is based on toys of the same name but is actually more based on the movie that released in 2016. As often with Dreamworks movies, Netflix then commissions an accompanying series to go alongside it.

As with other Dreamworks series on Netflix, new seasons of Trolls have been swift and often. In January 2019 we got the fifth season consisting of 6 episodes. Here’s the release schedule so far:

3 August 24, 2018
4 November 2, 2018
5 January 18, 2019

The sixth season, which is set to consist of around the same amount of episodes as the previous season, is due to release on Netflix on April 9th, 2019. The series is a global original meaning every country will receive it.

Trolls season 6 release date

Will there be a season 7 of Trolls The Beat Goes On!

All Dreamworks series start to drop off between seasons 6 to 9. The longest series we’ve had so far was Voltron which ran for eight seasons but quite often most don’t reach that.

Trolls has a large following which could mean further episodes are produced and when the series was originally announced, we didn’t get an episode count like some other Dreamworks shows.

The reality is we probably won’t know whether season 6 will be the last until several months down the line when season 7 would’ve launched on the existing timeline.

Trolls The Beat Goes On! will also be accompanied by another Dreamworks series in April too. A little earlier in the month the eighth season of Spirit Riding Free, the animated title based on 2002 movie, is also arriving.

Are you looking forward to more singing and dancing with the Trolls? Let us know in the comments. Also, don’t forget, the next Trolls movie that’s due out next year will also likely come to Netflix but we’ll have more on that closer to the time.

When Will Trolls The Beat Goes On Season 9 Premiere on Netflix?

‘Trolls’, an animated romantic musical comedy by DreamWorks became an instant hit after its release in 2016. The animated film won a lot of hearts and has now expanded into an equally successful television series, called ‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’. Produced by DreamWorks too, the television series picks up from where the movie left off. The show’s reach across the globe is stunning, to say the least. It is broadcast over five continents and is available for streaming on Netflix regardless of the place. Despite poor ratings from critics and many audiences, ‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ still has a lot of traction in terms of viewership.

Season 1 of ‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ released on Netflix on January 18, 2018. Subsequently, it was renewed for Season 2, which premiered on the streaming service on March 9. Five months later, Season 3 premiered on August 24, and Season 4 made its way to viewers’ screens on November 2 last year. Most recently, on January 18, 2019, Season 5 of ‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ premiered. While Seasons 1, 3, 5, and 6 consisted of six episodes each, Seasons 2, 4 and 7 consisted of seven episodes each.

‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ has had a total of 8 successful seasons so far. Here’s everything we know about Trolls The Beat Goes On! Season 9.

Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Cast: Who is in it?

The bunch of trolls in the show is voiced by voice actors. The cast and crew have largely remained the same over the course of the past five seasons. Amanda Leighton, Skylar Astin, Ron Funches, Kari Wahlgren, David Fynn, and Sam Lerner play the characters of Branch, Queen Poppy, Cooper, Bella Brightly, Biggie, and King Lerner, respectively – the same characters they had played in the ‘Trolls’ movie. Other characters, too, are voiced by the same voice actors who were there in the movie. The televised version has been developed by Matthew Beans, who continues to oversee the production of the new seasons.

All the main voice over actors are expected to return for season 9.

Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Plot: What is it about?

The show picks up where the film ‘Trolls’ left off, and the series follows Queen Poppy, her boyfriend Branch, the Snack Pack, other trolls as they go about their lives in their idyllic forest home, Troll Village. In the show, the trolls have to get used to cohabitation with King Gristle and Bridget, as well as their grumpy Bergen pals. The trolls’ interaction with the Bergens often result in a clash of cultures, yet this does not dim the positivity that we’ve come to associate with the trolls. Filled with irreverence and music and random dance parties, ‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ will not disappoint fans of the movie.

The first 7 seasons of the show have presented new hair-raising adventures that the Trolls have to face. While some of the episodes of the show have been a big hit with the audiences, others haven’t been received particularly well. Now that Season 8 has aired, it remains to be seen what becomes of Queen Poppy and Branch, and whether more adventures await the beloved trolls. In terms of ratings, ‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ has a very mediocre rating of 5.9/10 on IMDb.

Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Season 9 Release Date: When does it premiere?

‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ season 8 premiered on November 22, 2019 on Netflix.

Netflix has been quick to renew the show that enjoys particular popularity among young audiences. Considering the fact that the show has seen 8 seasons in quick succession, it is likely that ‘Trolls: The Beat Goes On!’ will get renewed for a 9th season. Our best guess is that Beat Goes On Season 9 will premiere sometime in February 2020. We will update this section as we learn more.

If you had Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” or the Trolls Holiday show on repeat these past two years, then Netflix has just the thing for your household.

On January 19, the streaming service is releasing an animated spinoff series, Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, with brand-new music to listen to and a different set of characters to meet.

Famous voices from the Trolls movie, which starred Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, and James Corden, will be absent from the TV show, but moms and dads might recognize Amanda Leighton from This Is Us and Skylar Astin from Pitch Perfect as Poppy and Branch.

Netflix

If your family is new to the Trolls fandom, it might be a good idea to watch the popular animated movie before diving into the new Netflix series. According to the streaming service, season one will pick up where the movie left off — Queen Poppy is now ruling over a peaceful and prosperous Troll Village, while Branch is learning to let loose.

Netflix

The new show, a collaboration between Netflix and Dreamworks, is sure to tide your kids over until Trolls 2 hits theaters in April 2020. That gives you a whole two years to memorize all the catchy new songs — and to find yourself humming them at the grocery store, on your way to work, and in other awkward, very public settings. Isn’t parenthood grand?!

At first glance, Trolls looks like a lower-rent Smurfs, a sticky-sweet concoction based on a paper-thin premise, designed as a 3-D marketing campaign to push the kids some toys they don’t need right before the holidays. This was helped along, of course, by a ubiquitous Justin Timberlake song that has been pummeling us all since the summer. So granted, Trolls may have a low bar going in, but the movie scales it quickly and admirably by defying conventions, adding both new and familiar musical numbers, and hiding a valuable, Zen-like message in plain sight.

The plot is going to sound so saccharine it’ll make your teeth hurt, but here goes: The adorable, sunshiny Trolls are the main food of the ogre-like Bergens, who believe that only by eating Trolls will they be really happy. The Trolls, led by King Peppy (Jeffrey Tambor), escape to a far away pasture, leaving the Bergens in despair. Twenty years later, King’s daughter and lead Troll Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick) lives a charmed exiled life filled with frequent hugs and lots of singing and dancing. Unfortunately, her loud exuberance helps lead the Bergens right to the Trolls, and she must enlist Branch (Timberlake), the only grumpy Troll, to help save her friends.

The asides and departures Trolls takes with this standard plot make it more than worthwhile. Kendrick and Timberlake, whose excellent singing voices have been well-established, volley a buoyant banter between a lifelong optimist saddled with a lifelong pessimist (and vice versa). This leads to some valuable one-liners not only between two gifted performers, but some other witty segues, as when the duo runs into a snarky cloud creature. Trolls was written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, who cut their animation teeth on the Kung Fu Panda film series, another effort that is often funnier than most cartoons.

The songs, which occasionally segue into (shudder) medleys, offer appealing classics (including a genuinely touching version of Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors”) alongside some inventive soon-to-be standards, thanks to Timberlake’s musical direction. The best of these is “Get Back Up Again,” in which Poppy travels solo through an increasingly menacing landscape (with some truly creatively trippy hazards, like a series of monsters eating each other as their sizes increase and benign creatures like butterflies that quickly turn demon-like). Poppy is undeterred, even though she ends the song swollen after eating an errant berry (a nod to Willy Wonka) and cocooned as spider bait. Happier montages mix Junior Senior’s “Move Your Feet” with The Brady Bunch standard “Sunshine Day,” or Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out” with Notorious B.I.G.’s “Mo Money, Mo Problems.”

When Poppy and Branch finally reach the Bergen’s village, they are greeted with a hilarious, ironically miserable version of the Gorillaz’s “Clint Eastwood.” Things take another interesting turn when the Trolls encounter kitchen maid Bridget (Zooey Deschanel), who pines for Bergen King Gristle (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) with a downright heart-wrenching cover of Lionel Richie’s “Hello.” Trolls being Trolls, they can’t leave without helping Bridget get what she wants, but if the Bergens really want to eat the Trolls, how can everybody get what they want?

Where a lesser kids-marketed movie (frickin’ Smurfs) may take the path of least resistance, this is where Trolls, which has already garnered a lot of goodwill by this point in the movie, raises things another level. The Bergens are focused on eating Trolls because they believe that’s the only way they’ll be happy, but what if that’s not the only way? What if—and here’s where the world lurches—happiness is inside you already, and not based on a material thing you can buy, or even something you eat, or drink, or take? Trolls winds up transforming from a prospective toy commercial to a spiritual lesson about being content with what you already have. Kids will walk out not only in love with the songs and the characters, but hopefully having absorbed a valuable lesson about materialism and possibly even addiction. They’ll probably still demand some of those bound-to-be-ubiquitous dolls by December. But for a better Trolls souvenir, start with the soundtrack.

The musical tour will begin in November 2019 and will hit 60 major cities in its first year. Locations and dates have not yet been announced.

According to a statement, the journey begins when the Trolls’ hourly tradition of Hug Time is unexpectedly put at risk. So the performance-loving Poppy enlists her friends to save it by hosting “a toe-tapping, Trolls-tastic show” that’s heavy on their favorite things: singing, dancing, rainbows, glitter and hugs.

Members of the “Trolls Live!” fan club and those who sign up for Trolls Hair Mail can begin getting tickets on April 24; general sales begins on May 3.

The “Trolls” film starred the voices of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, James Corden and Christine Baranski, among others, and relaunched the beloved toy franchise in 2016.

The animated feature earned $346 million at the worldwide box office, as well as Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for Timberlake’s feel-good song, “Can’t Stop the Feeling.” The pop hit, written by Timberlake, Max Martin and Shellback, also won a Grammy Award in 2017 for a song written for visual media.

“Trolls” also yielded a Netflix animated series, “Trolls: The Beat Goes On!”, and the characters will be featured in a sequel, “Trolls World Tour,” due in theaters in spring 2020. Kelly Clarkson, Sam Rockwell and Chance the Rapper are among the new voices to be featured in the follow-up.

Tuesday’s announcement comes on the heels of a second extension for “DreamWorks Trolls: The Experience,” a New York City-based attraction that brings the colorful characters to life, too. That event has been extended through Labor Day.

Trolls are a race of small creatures of which Dreamworks Trolls is based upon.

The series, until Trolls World Tour, would use the term “Trolls” to refer to the only known tribe of Trolls, the Pop trolls. Therefore, some conflicting information exists between “Troll” and “Pop Troll”. Thus, just because “Pop Trolls” do something, it does not mean it applies to all Trolls. Despite this, there are traits all Trolls share that can be noted and the species called “Trolls” is one of great diversity. What separates the Troll species boils down to culture which has created a great deal of diversity per population even down to appearances.

Appearances and Variations

General Appearance

Trolls are small creatures with hair that can outstretch. They generally are small in stature and have long hair. Their bodies can be any colour as can their hair, though they can change their colour to blend in. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. A number of them have “Good luck gems” where their belly-button should be.

There tends to be not much variation among each actual Tribe separate populations. Most designs of each Troll tribe are randomly generated by Dreamworks themselves. This is most likely to save time and money and it tends to extend to 2D animation as well. Large crowds of Trolls are made possible with the use of random generated Trolls wherein colour of hair, body and attire, as well as attire design, are simply swapped. Only named characters, or characters serving to be a focus of a scene are given heavy details.

The most significant and consistent design change that occurs within the separate populations of Trolls, is the presence of eyelashes. The design of the eyelashes changes per population, but eyelashes normally indicate a female Troll. Males otherwise are only picked out by their lack of eyelashes. Exceptions are only given to “unique” designed characters such as Keith or Trollzart, who have eyelashes despite being male. In Kieth’s case, the circumstances for having eyelashes is Dreamworks re-used Poppy’s baby model for his character, and Kieth is a green version of baby Poppy.

The Tribes

There are currently 6 described tribes in the series each with their own look;

  • Pop trolls are the based on the 1980s toyline of “Trolls”.
  • Funk trolls have two or four legs and long necks, they are based on Troll animals.
  • Classical trolls have wings and puffy hair, resembling a cherub.
  • Rock trolls generally resemble Pop Trolls but are a lot more wild looking with aggressive appearances.
  • Country trolls often are centaur-like with four hooves and a tail.
  • Techno trolls are aquatic with dark bodies covered in bright neon markings.

Biology

Reproduction

Not much is known about how the Trolls reproduce as of available information. Though children do have parents, normally both a male and female Troll, little details are given on the Troll reproduction process. This is mostly because of the fact the Trolls franchise itself is aimed at children.

Tiny Diamond’s egg

The only currently witnessed birth is from Guy Diamond, who gave birth to Tiny Diamond despite being male. Tiny was birthed from Guy’s hair and hatches out of a sliver egg moments later. Tiny inherited all of Guy’s looks, but his style of music is different from his father’s. These variations of the basic 6 Troll tribes are natural occurrences that occur over time. Also, just because a parent has a preference for one genre of music, their offspring won’t necessarily inherit it.

In The Giver from The Beat Goes On!, Cooper tells Poppy his life-story beginning with “Darkness… Then I emerge from the womb…”, Implying that child birth may be different between different Troll populations. This also implies Funk trolls are Viviparous, compared to Pop Trolls like Guy Diamond that are Oviparous.

Infants/Juveniles

One of the largest inconsistency within the series comes from infant Trolls. Comparing just Baby Poppy from Trolls to Tiny Diamond from Trolls World Tour can lead to a note of density of hair, body size/proportions and capabilities between the two.

Tiny can speak full sentences, while Poppy seemed only simple words and repeating phrases such as “Dada” and “No Troll left behind”. She is much chubbier in the body as well with less hair, while Tiny looks more like a chibi-Guy Diamond. While Poppy is notable older then Tiny, Tiny still surpassed what she could do when she was younger.

In addition, within The Beat Goes On further inconsistency can be found. In the episode Gem Day, Poppy stated when a Troll gets it first hair, it is cut. Yet Tiny is also born with a full head of hair. In the episode Vega Swift it was noted a baby’s hair can become out of control and therefore they need to wear a bonnet to keep it contain, but this is note seen anywhere else in the series.

Among the Techno Trolls a young child can be seen with its parents. In another scene, Delta Dawn sends a small Country Troll to attack Poppy and her friends. The miniature Troll opens it mouth and reveals a set of rotating teeth that move like a buzz-saw. It is unknown if this is done for comic relief or if this is common among the tribe.

One of the jobs Poppy role of Tribe leader also is to teach young Trolls how “to be a Troll”, but it is also unknown if this role applies to all of the leaders.

Predators

Due to their diminutive size, the Trolls are subject to being prey to a number of larger Fauna, as well as at least one population once fearing being eaten by Bergens. The Trolls are not top of their food chain and have to be wary of any animal capable of eating them.

Habitats

Troll Kingdom

The Trolls have adapted to a variety of climates, these form the “Troll Kingdom”. The Kingdom consists of the deep oceanic floors, high mountains, forests and desert, as well as volcanic areas. Depending on location depends on what type of Troll lives there. The forests are inhabited by Pop trolls, the volcanic area by Rock trolls, the oceans by Techno trolls, the deserts by Country trolls, the mountains by Classical trolls.

Note that not enough detail has been given yet on the Funk trolls to comment on their environment.

Troll Culture

The series has mostly focused on Pop Trolls and thus only their culture has been explored in depth.

Collectively, Troll culture is generally based on song and dance, all trolls no matter what their origin like to dance and sing. The style of music varies per heritage and variations of their culture have occurred over time. Within these tribes sub-variants of music have formed loosely based on that culture for example Guy Diamond, a Pop Troll, gives birth in Trolls World Tour, a Hip-hop Troll. To each Troll, a Troll of a different variant can seem alien-like. As King Peppy notes, the other Tribes “don’t dance like us and don’t sing like us”.

Trolls are generally care-free and friendly towards their own kind, but some aggression is displayed to other Tribes and the Tribes do clash in their ideology. As seen in the trailers for Trolls World Tour Poppy’s first reaction to Country Trolls is to note “the Country Trolls look friendly”. Pop Trolls are mostly friendly themselves, but soon find out moments later the Country Trolls are quite unfriendly towards strangers. Barb also displays a desire for Rock music to be the dominate music among the Trolls to the point of going out of her way to rid the world of everything but her own cultures style of music. The other Tribes don’t seem to understand the overall culture of other Tribes, as when Satin and Chenille attempt disguises of these Trolls, they show misunderstanding of the other Trolls styles.

It is implied that the ability for different Tribes to get along has always existed, as Cooper a Funk Troll lived among the Pop Trolls for years without them even knowing he was a Funk Troll or where he came from.

Subcultures of Trolls have also developed over time that don’t fit in with the 6 main Troll Tribes.

Troll Abilities

The trolls have the ability to outstretch their hair to use as an extra limb for hanging from trees, for camouflage (as seen when Poppy used her hair to hide her and her father from Chef) or even to make light ( as seen when Poppy used her hair to seem like fire when she and Branch were sneaking into the castle). Trolls can also change the color of their hair, as the Snack Pack was able to do this when they used their hair as a makeshift wig for Bridget the Bergen. The Pop Trolls use their hair to make their homes out of, so Troll hair is quite strong and endurable. Branch notes in Troll 2 Troll that a Troll’s hair is their best defence, mousse and gel limit its movements.

Their hair doesn’t always cooperate. In Trolly Tales 3, Gia Grooves has a bad hair day. This causes her hair to go out of control and it is noted it will take her all day to get it under control. In ASK POPPY: Bad Hair Day, Guy Diamond has the same problem caused by a cowlick and Poppy finds it impossible to restyle it for him.

Eating a Troll grants the feeling of happiness to Bergens.

True Colours

Poppy and Branch (centre) showing their True Colours, as the other Trolls regain their True Colours

When a Troll is scared, very unhappy or loose hope they gain a grey colouration to them. This usually lasts for a brief period of time but can last for years as in the case of Branch. As this impacted Cooper, a Funk Troll, it is not something just restricted to the Pop Trolls.

When a Troll is at their happiest they show their True colours, which causes them to have very bright colouration and makes them glow.

History

The 6 ancestors from King Peppy’s speech. Left to right; Pop, Techno, Funk, Country, Rock and Classical

Long ago the ancestors of the 6 tribes created the Strings, 6 in total. These were based on their Tribes culture, of which was each was centralised on a particular type of music; Pop, Classical, Rock, Techno, Funk and Country.

At some point the Tribes became isolated from each other, each going to their own separate corners of the Troll lands and creating their own kingdoms. The Pop Trolls were also left with the white harp that once held all 6 strings. The Pop trolls especially became isolated from the other Troll kingdoms, due to the events of the first Trolls film and were prisoners of the Bergens.

Trolls World Tour

Queen Barb decides to invade the other 5 kingdoms to get their Strings and erase all music except for Rock. In response, Queen Poppy of the Pop Trolls decides to rally all the Tribes against her.

Due to the movie not yet being released, details remain unknown.

Influence

Trolls Holiday “Love Train” worm hole scene

Their designs are based on elements of the various Troll toys that became popular in the 1990s.

  • Funk trolls are based on a Toy giraffe Troll.
  • Many of the toylines by Russ had gems for bellybuttons which is where the presence of the gems on Trolls in the Dreamworks Trolls come from.
  • Trolls Holiday pays homage to the toys that inspired the film, as Poppy and her friends venture through a “Worm hole” they change to look like the toys.

Trivia

  • The 6 Troll Tribes have some influences from mythology;
    • The Pop Trolls are loosely based on elves – though the term “Elves” is considered a racial slur to them and they find it very offensive.
    • The Techno Trolls are loosely based on Merfolk.
    • The Country Trolls are loosely based on Centaurs.
    • The Classical Trolls are based on cherubs.

Will The ‘Trolls’ Holiday Special Be On Netflix? You’re Going To Want To Watch It Over & Over Again

Like most specials on TV this time of year, you can’t watch the Trolls holiday special just once and then be done for the season. But since this was the first year the brand new special aired, you’re probably already wondering, will the Trolls holiday special be on Netflix? Since you’re undoubtedly going to want to watch it over and over, or at least your kid might, you can rejoice in knowing that it will premiere on Netflix on Dec. 6. That gives you plenty of time to enjoy it for the duration of the month, while celebrating your family holidays and enjoying Poppy, Branch, and the rest of the Trolls crew that we all fell in love with during the original movie.

Just in case you weren’t able to watch it when it aired on NBC in November, the Trolls holiday special centers around Poppy’s need to help the Bergens learn to celebrate all of the classic Troll holidays, like Ticklepalooza and Balloon Squeal Day. Because what other holidays would you expect the Trolls to celebrate? Since they banished Trollstice during the Trolls movie, the Bergens now have nothing to look forward to, so of course Poppy has made it her mission to help them learn to celebrate and look forward to other holidays throughout the year.

Of course if you can’t wait until Dec. 6, the Trolls holiday special is already available on DVD, iTunes, and Amazon Prime, but since there’s nothing like a solid Netflix binging session, you can soon add the Trolls holiday special to your Christmas movie queue. When Trolls returned with its new story, all of the same beloved characters and voices behind them came back, too, including both Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake.

Watching the holiday special on Netflix is also the next best thing to watching the actual movie before the Trolls sequel is released in 2020. Granted, that still seems like quite a ways off from now, but if the success of the Trolls holiday special is any indication, then maybe fans can expect even more specials in the future. The holiday feature averaged in at 5.19 million viewers during its hour-long time slot, and for a first-ever special, that’s a pretty impressive number. To help put it into perspective — on the same night, Frosty the Snowman had 3.95 million viewers, with college football on FOX bringing in 3.59 million. So overall, the Trolls holiday special did quite well, especially for its first year of doing anything like this.

Giphy

There’s also a brand new soundtrack that was born out of the holiday special with a whole litany of songs by the original cast with some original songs in there as well. While there hasn’t been an announcement about future holiday specials in the vein of the Trolls universe, it was clearly an effortless success and producing future holiday specials would be the perfect way to keep fans interested until the official sequel is released in 2020. It might not be one of the Christmas classics, like the ever-popular claymation masterpiece Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, but because of its stellar ratings, it’s entirely possible that at the very least, the same special could return to TV again next year.

In the meantime, the Trolls holiday special will indeed be on Netflix starting Dec. 6, so whether you were one of the more than five million people who tuned in to watch it live on NBC or not, you’ll be able to enjoy it commercial-free in all of its streaming glory.

BRING HOME HAPPY WITH DREAMWORKS TROLLS ON DIGITAL HD JAN. 24 AND BLU-RAY™ & DVD FEB. 7

DREAMWORKS TROLLS PARTY EDITION INCLUDES NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN SING-ALONG, DANCE-ALONG “PARTY MODE”, AND IS PACKED WITH FUN, COLORFUL EXTRAS, PERFECT FOR YOUR FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT!

A hit with audiences and critics alike, DreamWorks Animation’s TROLLS, is the “feel-good” movie of the year receiving an outstanding audience reaction with a coveted “A” CinemaScore® and a Certified Fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com. DreamWorks TROLLS, the fresh, music-filled adventure packed with humor and heart dances onto Digital HD on Jan. 24 and Blu-ray™ and DVD on
Feb. 7 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

The colorful, richly textured Troll Village is full of optimistic Trolls, who are always ready to sing, dance and party. When the comically pessimistic Bergens invade, Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious, curmudgeonly Branch (Justin Timberlake) set off on an epic journey to rescue her friends. Their mission is full of adventure and mishaps, as this mismatched duo try to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done.

From Shrek franchise veterans Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After) and Walt Dohrn (Shrek 2, Shrek the Third), TROLLS features the voice talents of Golden Globe® nominee Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, The Accountant), Grammy and Emmy® Award winner and Golden Globe® Award nominee Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits, Shrek the Third), Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award nominee Zooey Deschanel (“New Girl”), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad, How to Train Your Dragon), Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award winner Christine Baranski (“The Good Wife,” How the Grinch Stole Christmas), Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Grammy Award nominee Gwen Stefani (“The Voice”), Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award nominee John Cleese (Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After), Emmy® Award winner James Corden (“The Late Late Show with James Corden”, Into the Woods), Golden Globe® and Emmy® Award winner Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent, “Arrested Development”) and Ron Funches (“Undateable,” Get Hard).

“The movie’s message, and it’s a lovely one, is that we all have a wild-haired, beaming doll of happiness inside. ‘Trolls’ will put you in touch with yours,” proclaims Owen Gleiberman of Variety.
