20th Century Fox has revealed the first trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls, which is a big screen take on the ’90s collectable doll fad that’s making a comeback. Check out the Trolls trailer below!
Leading the cast is nine-time Grammy and four-time Emmy Award winner Justin Timberlake (The Social Network, Runner Runner, Inside Llewyn Davis) as the troll Branch, in addition to serving as executive music producer and performing multiple songs on the soundtrack. The film will also feature Academy and Tony Award nominee Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Up in the Air) as Princess Poppy, “The Late Late Show” host James Corden (Into the Woods) as Biggie, comedian Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek) as Creek, music superstar Gwen Stefani (The Aviator) as DJ Suki, YouTube personality GloZell Green as Grandma Rosiepuff, Kunal Nayyar (“The Big Bang Theory”) as Guy Diamond, comedian Ron Funches (“Undateable”) as Cooper, YouTube personality Meg DeAngelis as Moxie and Swedish electropop duo Icona Pop (Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo) as the Fashionistas.
Directed by Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After), co-directed by Walt Dohrn (Shrek Forever After) and produced by Gina Shay (Shrek Forever After), the film for the first time tells the story behind the beloved Trolls and their gravity defying and colorful manes. Setting out on an epic adventure that takes Poppy and Branch far beyond the only world they have ever known, their quest will test their strength and reveal their true colors – with no shortage of musical mash-ups along the way!
The Trolls movie will be released on November 4, 2016.
