Universal Pictures shared that the sequel, with a $90 million budget, has already garnered $77 million in revenue, according to Joblo, with additional revenue coming from music sales thanks to the soundtrack as well as merchandise. According to the outlet, the Trolls sequel has already made more money for the studio than Trolls did during its five months in theaters. NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell told WSJ that “the results for Trolls World Tour have exceeded our expectations and demonstrated the viability of PVOD. As soon as theaters reopen, we expect to release movies on both formats.”
Trolls World Tour will continue to follow Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake’s characters Queen Poppy and Branch as they go on an adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before, Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) discover that they are but one of six different Troll tribes scattered over six different lands and devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a whole lot louder.
A member of hard-rock royalty, Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), aided by 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 their friends — Biggie (James Corden), Chenille (Caroline Hjelt), Satin (Aino Jawo), Cooper (Ron Funches) and Guy Diamond (Kunal Nayyar) — set out to visit all the other lands to unify the Trolls in harmony against Barb, who’s looking to upstage them all.
The musical comedy-adventure film will be featuring an all-star cast as members of different musical tribes including Mary J. Blige, George Clinton, and Anderson Paak as trolls from the land of Funk music; Kelly Clarkson as Delta Dawn, Sam Rockwell as Hickory and Flula Borg as Dickory from the land of Country music; J Balvin as a troll that represents Reggaeton; Ester Dean as a troll from the Pop tribe; Anthony Ramos as a troll that brings the beat in Techno; Jamie Dornan as the smooth-playing Jazz troll; World-renowned conductor and violinist Gustavo Dudamel appears as Trollzart; Charlyne Yi as Pennywhistle from the land of Classical; Kenan Thompson raps as a hip-hop newborn Troll named Tiny Diamond; and South Korean superstars Red Velvet consists of Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy and Yeri as representatives of K-Pop trolls.
