The major 1960s fad is heading its way to the big screen this 2016. Just in time for the release of “Kung Fu Panda 3”, DreamWorks Animation rolled out the first teaser trailer of “Trolls.”
The new trailer features the crazy-haired toy dolls sing and dance and generally have a ball. The video also warns that they are mighty tasty.
The first international trailer does not offer any in-film footage, instead it showcased a few trolls busting a move to “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)” and not to the anticipated original music Justin Timberlake is writing for the movie, as reported in Entertainment Weekly.
Check out the official trailer below:
Deadline reports that Anna Kendrick will star as Princess Poppy, the upbeat leader of the group who embarks on an adventure with her polar opposite Branch (Justin Timberlake). The two will trek beyond their world and encounter Bergens, the beings who like to eat the trolls.
Other voice cast members include Russell Brand, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Gwen Stefani and Icona Pop.
Aside from voicing one of the characters, Timberlake also signed on to write and perform original music for the film. He will serve as the executive music producer for “Trolls,” overseeing the creative direction for the film’s music as well as performing several songs on the soundtrack.
“I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event [and] couldn’t be more excited that they will collide in DreamWorks’ ‘Trolls’,” says Timberlake in an interview in The Hollywood Reporter. “This film is very special, the music is going to be very special and I can’t wait for everyone to experience it all.”
Mike Mitchell and Walt Dorlin from “Shrek” will direct the music-filled family pic.
“Trolls” is set to arrive in theatres this coming November 4.
