In the old days it was just book and TV shows that had a shot of being turned into movies, but now Hollywood has realised the pretty much anything is fair game, as long as it’s something that was popular at some point. Trolls, though, is an odd one, as there are plenty of kids around now whose parents are too young to remember the fuzzy haired figures’ heyday in the 70s. Admittedly though back then they were so popular that no youngster could expect to be seen as cool without a Troll pencil topper.
However, Dreamworks Animation isn’t letting the fact they were most popular 40-years-ago to stand in their way, and have now released a full trailer for their Trolls movie.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘DreamWorks’ TROLLS is a hair-raising comedy filled with unbelievable adventure and incredible music. Known for their crazy, colourful, and magical hair, Trolls are the happiest, most joyous creatures ever to burst into song. But their world of rainbows and cupcakes is changed forever, when their leader Poppy (Anna Kendrick,) must embark on a rescue mission that takes her far beyond the only world she’s ever known.’
The voice cast also features Justin Timberlake, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Gwen Stefani, Russell Brand, and Ron Founts. It’ll be in UK cinemas in October. [Read more…]
