Those lovable trolls are back. Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake return in the all-star Trolls sequel Trolls World Tour. Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) discover there is more to the world than they had been aware of. They learn that there are six different troll tribes scattered over six lands, and each one devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop, and Rock.
The music in the movie is a real treat and the line-up includes musical legends George Clinton, Mary J. Blige (Funk), and Ozzy Osborne (Rock). Directing the music is pop superstar Justin Timberlake. Country music is represented by Kelly Clarkson, and Kenan Thompson is a baby rapper known as Tiny Diamond.
Rachel Bloom is Rock Queen Barb, who is out to control the Troll World by making everyone a Rock Zombie. Poppy and Branch set out on a journey to try and make The Rock Queen their friend and the content of the movie is the adventure they have, making new friends and allies along the way.
Trolls World Tour is a great family film (my kids loved it). It is a wonderful story about accepting our differences and embracing the things that make us unique. It’s a really fun movie.
The movie debuted this weekend on Pay Per View at $19.99. It runs 1 hour and 34 minutes and is rated PG. On my “Hollywood Popcorn Scale,” I rate Trolls World Tour a JUMBO.
