DreamWorks Animation has released a new Trolls trailer that lays out the challenges for the title critters. It seems that the happy, colorful colony of Trolls has but one worry in the world: the perennially pessimistic, troll-eating Bergens. So when the Bergens invade the village and make off with a bevy of trolls, it’s up to the endlessly happy Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and the glum and gloomy Branch (Justin Timberlake) to save their friends.
Kendrick and Timberlake walk viewers through this trailer, much like their characters will likely hold the hands of the younger-skewing audience members. Trolls looks like a big, colorful, music-filled adventure story that’s packed with easy humor and tales of friendship that’ll be just perfect for the little ones.
Check out the new Trolls trailer below. The film opens November 4th, and also features the voices of Russell Brand, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, and Gwen Stefani. Click here for our interview with Kendrick and Timberlake.
Here’s the official synopsis for Trolls:
From the creators of Shrek comes DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, a smart, funny, and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it. This hilarious film transports audiences to a colorful, wondrous world populated by the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant dance in their step and a song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomachs.
After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy (Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious curmudgeonly Branch (Timberlake) set off on a journey to rescue her friends. Together, this mismatched duo embark on a rescue mission full of adventure and mishaps – trying to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done.
Utilizing music to further the film’s narrative, the Trolls soundtrack is produced by Justin Timberlake and features five original songs including songs by Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani in addition to a number of classic hits from the 60’s – 80’s.
