We have some new details on Trolls 2, which we now know to be titled Trolls World Tour. DreamWorks is finally ready to dish some details on the upcoming sequel and, in addition to the title, they've revealed 21, yes 21, different character posters for the upcoming animated flick, based on the popular toy line. To boot, they've also got the first trailer coming down the pipeline tomorrow. So we're going to be treated to a whole bunch of Trolls action, whether we like it or not, over the course of the next 24 hours.
The posters, in themselves, aren't terribly revealing, as they just feature a bunch of Troll hands, clearly ready to rock out. They do confirm that both Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake will return. They also reveal some of the new cast members, which include Ozzy Osbourne, James Corden and Rachel Bloom. Beyond that, we'll have to wait and see what Poppy and Branch are getting up to when the trailer drops. We're guessing it will involve lots of singing and dancing, as well as some child-friendly humor.
Quite a few famous voices are joining in on the fun this time around. Mary J. Blige, George Clinton and Anderson .Paak hail from the land of Funk. Kelly Clarkson as Delta Dawn, Sam Rockwell as Hickory and Flula Borg as Dickory will represent Country. The Pop tribe will get some help from Ester Dean, while J Balvin brings the Reggaeton. Anthony Ramos is set to bring the Techno and Jamie Dornan will bring the smooth jazz. The land of Classical gets world-renowned conductor and violinist Gustavo Dudamel appearing as Trollzart and Charlyne Yi as Pennywhistle. Last, but certainly not least, SNL star Kenan Thompson raps as a hip-hop newborn Troll named Tiny Diamond.
Trolls World Tour centers on Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) who discover that they are just one of six different Troll tribes scattered over six different lands. Each of these different tribes is devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. A member of hard-rock royalty, Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), with the assistance of her father King Thrash (Ozzy Osbourne), wants to destroy all other kinds of music to let rock reign supreme. With the fate of the world at stake, Poppy and Branch, along with some friends, Biggie (James Corden), Chenille (Caroline Hjelt), Satin (Aino Jawo), Cooper (Ron Funches) and Guy Diamond (Kunal Nayyar), set out on a quest to the other musical lands to unite the Trolls in harmony against Barb.
Walt Dohrn is in the director's chair, after having co-directed the first movie. Trolls World Tour will feature new original music by Justin Timberlake, who previously contributed Can't Stop the Feeling to Trolls, which went on to earn an Oscar nomination. Theodore Shapiro (The Devil Wears Prada) will provide the score. Trolls World Tour is set to arrive in theaters on April 17, 2020. Be sure to check out the new character posters from DreamWorks below.
