Dreamworks’ Trolls features the voice talents of Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake as — you guessed it! — trolls.
Trolls, directed by Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn, is based on the popular 1990s’ toy franchise.
In the movie, Anna Kendrick plays the pink-haired leader Poppy, with Justin Timberlake as the dark-haired Branch.
Check out the trailer below:
Poppy, or the artist formerly known as Joy, is just so damn happy all the time. “It’s not her fault she’s so insanely happy,” says Timberlake. “She’s just never faced a real problem — until now.”
The trailer invites you to “find your happy place,” and goes on to introduce the cast — a good move, considering the amazing line-up Dreamworks has secured for this movie!
Aside from Kendrick and Timberlake (who also provides original music for the movie), Trolls boasts the talents of James Corden, Gwen Stefani, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, Jeffrey Tambor, Quvenzhané Wallis, John Cleese, Kunal Nayyar, Christina Baranski, and more.
Here’s the official synopsis for Trolls:
“From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny, irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks’ Trolls. 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.”
