An Iconic Toy Finally Comes To Life In 'Trolls'
When I first heard that Troll dolls were getting their own movie, I'll admit that I was a little skeptic.
Granted, 'The LEGO Movie' turned out to be really funny. And 'Angry Birds' - despite mixed reviews - grossed over $337 million and opened as #1 in the box office. Still, the difference between LEGOs, Angry Birds, and Trolls is that the first two are still relevant and widely popular with kids. Trolls? Well, I haven't seen one in the flesh - in the plastic? - since the late 90s.
However, then they had to go and cast the most charming celebrities of all time, Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick.
Justin stars as Branch, an unlikely hero who teams up with Anna's Poppy to defend their troll village against the evil Bergens. (This is hilarious to me only because my 7th grade Science teacher's last name was Bergen, and she, too, was kind of evil.) Did I mention the trolls poop cupcakes? I feel like this needs to be out there. Judging by the trailer, it's going to be really hard for me to choose between 'Sing' and 'Trolls' as my favorite animated movie for the second half of the year.
Do you think Justin's got what it takes to bring sexy AND Troll dolls back?
Watch the clip above, let me know below, and look forward to more movie previews!
