DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have released a new full-length trailer for Trolls! From the genius creators of Shrek, Trolls stars Anna Kendrick as Poppy, the optimistic leader of the Trolls, and her polar opposite, Branch, played by Justin Timberlake. Trolls also stars Gwen Stefani, James Corden, Russell Brand, Icona Pop, Ron Funches and Kunal Nayaar. Together, the Trolls must embark on an adventure that takes them far beyond the only world they've ever known.
DreamWorks Animation's Trolls is an irreverent comedy extravaganza with incredible music! This animated adventure promises to be the most smart, funny, irreverent animated comedy of the year! This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comedicly pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach.
Featuring original music from Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani, Trolls isn't just funny, it will also get your toes tapping like no other family comedy this year. Justin Timberlake's latest song can be heard in this new footage. His character Branch is a hilariously hardcore survivalist who hides his surprising true colors. About the project, the pop star had this to say.
"I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event [and] couldn't be more excited that they will collide in DreamWorks' Trolls. This film is very special, the music is going to be very special and I can't wait for everyone to experience it all."
Shrek Forever After duo Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn co-directed Trolls, which is produced by Gina Shay. The comedy adventure is based on the iconic dolls made popular in the 60s. About bringing Justin Timberlake in, DreamWorks Animation's co-presidents of feature animation Bonnie Arnold and Mireille Soria had this to say.
"Justin is an amazingly versatile artist and producer whose unprecedented creative talents provide a unique voice and sound for our movie. Trolls is a comedy with fantastic music at its core and we can't think of a more perfect artist to elevate this soundtrack to incredible heights."
