DreamWorks’ Trolls is a fun, enjoyable, lighthearted animated musical comedy film for the entire family.

In the film, the Trolls are small, colorful, lovable creatures that are in a constant state of happiness. Trolls sing, dance, hug and are just absolutely positive creatures. In contrast, the Bergens are large creatures that can never find happiness and are of the belief that their one and only source of happiness is achieved by eating a Troll. Each year, the Bergens hold a Trollstice, a festival where the Bergens eat Trolls to experience happiness.

The Trolls, led by King Peppy, manage an escape from Bergen Town and the Bergens, and find a new home where they remain safe and hidden from the Bergens for twenty years until their new home is unexpectedly revealed and discovered.

In a race against time, Princess Poppy (King Peppy’s daughter) with the help of Branch (a gray, grumpy Troll) return to Bergen Town to save their fellow Trolls. Of course, no story is complete without some twists & turns, secrets revealed and touching, emotional moments and Trolls is no exception.

The film features the voices of an all-star cast including Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, Gwen Stefani, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, John Cleese and more. The soundtrack features a collection of fantastic, feel good and touching songs and the film reminds us about the true source of happiness. Trolls is definitely a movie to see!
