SKY HIGH Director Mike Mitchell to Helm DreamWorks Animation’s TROLLS; Story Tells the Origin of the Dolls’ Colorful Hair

by     Posted 1 year, 145 days ago

Though DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls movie was first announced a couple of years ago, we now have some solid information regarding the animated pic.  DreamWorks Animation announced today that Sky High and Shrek Forever After director Mike Mitchell will helm the film, with screenwriter Erica Rivinoja (South Park, Up All Night) handling the screenplay.

The film features the titular dolls that became a phenomenon in the 1960s and again in the 1990s, and is described as “a grand scale musical comedy centering around how the Trolls came into their vibrant and colorful hair.”  An origin story of hair isn’t exactly what I expected when I pictured a Trolls movie, but maybe the slightly ridiculous premise is right in line with the peculiar choice of making a Trolls movie in the first place.  Hit the jump for more, including the full press release.

  • Anubis – 20th Century Fox will release this new film from Blue Sky Studios on July 15, 2016.
  • Ferdinand – Fox has also dated another animated feature from Blue Sky Studios for April 7, 2017 (that seems so impossibly far away).  Carlos Saldanha (Ice Age, Rio) will direct.
