Glendale, CA – DreamWorks Animation have made a film for kids and adults to enjoy together this fall, “TROLLS!” The family will love this animated comedy as they enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic “Trolls.”
They always have a song on their lips, unless they are comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomachs.
Producer Gina Shay helped bring “Trolls” to life with the voices of Anna Kendrick as Poppy, Justin Timberlake as Branch and Russell Brand as Creek. There are thousands of different rainbow-colored friends that love to hug all day, spreading joy and happiness.
During a recent press presentation at Campanile Theater at DreamWorks Animation, where “Trolls” director Mike Mitchell, co-director Walt Dohrn, Shay, along with some of the actors who were made available to the media, Kendrick described the “Trolls” as “so ugly but cute.”
Directors Mitchell and Dohrn prove to be the perfect duo to bring such a special film to life. Timberlake, upping his acting credits, gets the lead with the main character in film, but his title as executive music producer brought him just as much satisfaction working on the film.
This film has a 70’s funk sound-theme throughout the entirety of the movie, giving Old-School a deserved shout out. Timberlake shared 70s inspiration is the film’s hot track “Can’t Stop the Feeling!”
Poppy the lead, a relentlessly upbeat – if slightly naive – Troll who’s father King Peppy saved his subjects from the Troll-hungry Bergens. She discovers that being true to yourself is always the best answer.
Branch is the over-cautious paranoid survivalist in Troll Village, who lives in fear of invasion from the Bergens. The only Troll in the village who doesn’t sing, dance or hug, Branch lives a disgruntled existence, constantly trying to prepare for the worst.
Creek is the most positive, supportive, reassuring Troll in all of Troll Village, approaching everything with Zen like wisdom. He’s calm collected and capable.
This movie will opens in theaters near you on Nov. 4. To find out more about “Trolls,” please visit: http://www.dreamworks.com/trolls/
