When I was a child, my sister was obsessed with trolls. Like, she had tonnes of them and loved them ridiculous amounts. Me? I loved whatever my sister loved. One Sunday, in the small town I grew up in, I begged my amazing father to help me find a troll after the kids that were round at our house all had their own. I found the biggest, fattest, and oldest troll and I loved it unconditionally. Because TROLLS WERE THE BEST!
What I’m trying to get at is that many people will be flipping out – either angrily or with nostalgic wet eyes – at the release of Trolls.
With the voice talents of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, and James Corden, Trollsrevolves around the magical creatures with all that hair, who love to sing, dance, and be joyous. That is until their land is invaded and they have to fight for their lives. Can they survive?
So that’s what Dreamworks are doing – this. And it looks colourful, kind of funny, and definitely going to be a sure fire hit with all that merchandise. Depending on how well the story goes, Trolls could be worth the cinema trip and may be a different vibe to the current studios trilogies and their finale films (Kung Fu Panda 3 and How to Train Your Dragon 2). A unique voice? Yes. A good one? Hmmm. A hairy adventure? Certainly.
What do you think?
