Sequel to hit feature will see the shiny happy creatures seek out others of their kind -- and the music they get down to.
GLENDALE, CALIF. -- The sequel to Trolls, DreamWorks Animation’s highly successful animated comedy-adventure starring Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake, will be titled Trolls World Tour.
Continuing where the first film left off, it’s all glitter and happiness in Troll Town until Queen Poppy and Branch make a surprising discovery -- there are other Troll worlds beyond their own, each defined by a different genre of music. When a mysterious threat puts all the Trolls across the land in danger, Poppy, Branch, and their band of friends must embark on an epic quest through unfamiliar terrain to do the impossible: create harmony among the diverse Trolls to unite them against certain doom.
Set for release April 17, 2020, the film boasts an all-star cast that includes returning cast members Kendrick (Poppy), Timberlake (Branch), James Corden (Biggie), Caroline Hjelt (Chenille), Aino Jawo (Satin), Ron Funches (Cooper) and Kunal Nayyar (Guy Diamond), who are joined by recently announced Sam Rockwell, Chance the Rapper, Anthony Ramos, Karan Soni, Flula Borg and Jamie Dornan, who will voice new characters.
The film, which is produced by Gina Shay, directed by Walt Dohrn and co-directed by David P. Smith, follows in the footsteps of the first film, once again providing a musical showcase for original songs and re-recordings of classic favorites -- which are woven into the narrative of the film as story-telling elements. The all-new installment of the franchise expands the series’ music genres, representing a variety of songs from pop, country, and hip-hop, to hard rock, funk, K-pop and EDM -- as well as everything in between.
