‘Trolls World Tour’ Fills Void Left By 007, Releases Brand New Trailer

The vacancy left by No Time to Die has created opportunities for other films to fill the void. Universal and Dreamworks have plugged in the animated sequel Trolls World Tour for April 10th, moving it up a week to cover for James Bond’s absence. And with that move comes a brand new hard-rockin’ trailer.

Trolls World Tour returns Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick to the roles of Branch and Poppy, who learn their musical tribe is but one of many. The other Troll tribes have very different tastes in music, but only one wants to wipe out all of the others and rule.

The voice cast includes Rachel Bloom, Ozzy Osbourne, James Corden, Kenan Thompson, Anthony Ramos, and many more. You’ve got George Clinton and Mary J. Blige reprenting the land of funk, Kelly Clarkson as the queen of country, and that’s just the start but you get what Dreamworks is layin’ down.

SYNOPSIS: Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake return in an all-star sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s 2016 musical hit: Trolls World Tour. In an adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before, Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) discover that they are but one of six different Troll tribes scattered over six different lands and devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a
whole lot louder.

A member of hard-rock royalty, Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), aided by her father King Thrash (Ozzy Osbourne), wants to destroy all other kinds of music to let rock reign supreme. With the fate of the world at stake, Poppy and Branch, along with their friends – Biggie (James Corden), Chenille (Caroline Hjelt), Satin (Aino Jawo), Cooper (Ron Funches) and Guy Diamond (Kunal Nayyar) – set out to visit all the other lands to unify the Trolls in harmony against Barb, who’s looking to upstage them all.
