Twentieth Century Fox has unveiled a new poster and “Trollify Yourself” app for DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls.

Due in theaters on November 4, Trolls is billed as “a smart, funny, and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it.” The film is directed by Mike Mitchell alongside co-director Walt Dohrn and producer Gina Shay.

Featuring the voices of Anna Kendrick as the cheerful Poppy and Justin Timberlake as the dour Branch, the story centers on the overly optimistic Trolls and the comedically pessimistic Bergens. The CG-animated film features original music from Timberlake and “soon-to-be-classic” mash-ups of songs from several other popular artists, including Gwen Stefani, who also voices a role in the film. Additional voice talent includes Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Quvenzhané Wallis and John Cleese.

Here’s the official synopsis:

From the creators of Shrek comes DreamWorks Animation's TROLLS, a smart, funny, and irreverent comedy about the search for happiness, and just how far some will go to get it. This hilarious film transports audiences to a colorful, wondrous world populated by the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant dance in their step and a song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomachs.

After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy (Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious curmudgeonly Branch (Timberlake) set off on a journey to rescue her friends. Together, this mismatched duo embark on a rescue mission full of adventure and mishaps -- trying to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done.

Utilizing music to further the film's narrative, the TROLLS soundtrack is produced by Justin Timberlake and features five original songs including songs by Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani in addition to a number of classic hits from the 60's - 80's.
