New trailer released for Trolls World Tour

Published on: 15th November 2019

Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake are returning in an all-star sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s 2016 musical hit. 

A new trailer for Trolls 2, Trolls World Tour, has been released. The upcoming animated movie sequel features the voice acting talents of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Rachel Bloom, Ozzy Osbourne and James Corden, plus many more stars.

In an adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before, Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) discover that they are but one of six different Troll tribes scattered over six different lands and devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a whole lot louder. A member of hard-rock royalty, Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), aided by her father King Thrash (Ozzy Osbourne), wants to destroy all other kinds of music to let rock reign supreme. With the fate of the world at stake, Poppy and Branch, along with their friends, set out to visit all the other lands to unify the Trolls in harmony.

In an interview with Toy World Magazine earlier this year, Hannah Mungo, director of Consumer Products – UK & Ireland at NBCUniversal, said that the musical genres in the film will offer something for everyone. “Licensing-wise, we already have a lot of partners on board and we’re looking to expand out to categories that we have never been in before,” she added. “We have added Plum Products for outdoor play and fashion is strong, anchored by partners like Aykroyds / TDP & Fashion UK. Hasbro will be returning as the global master toy partner and will be joined by Lego and Posh Paws, which are both new for Trolls. There will be a fresh approach to the programme in 2020 — building on the past success, but also offering something new. As big as Trolls is, we know that there is untapped potential out there that can really bring the IP into the stratosphere.”
