DreamWorks Introduce The Trolls Movie!
DreamWorks Animation’s “Trolls” is an irreverent comedy extravaganza with incredible music! From the genius creators of “Shrek,” “Trolls” stars Anna Kendrick as Poppy, the optimistic leader of the Trolls, and her polar opposite, Branch, played by nine-time Grammy and four-time Emmy Award winner Justin Timberlake who is also on board the movie as its executive music producer and performing multiple songs on the soundtrack.
Also starring are “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. Together, these unlikely pair of Trolls must embark on an adventure that takes them far beyond the only world they’ve ever known.
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!
