Oh yeah, Trolls World Tour comes out this week! Seriously, it had completely slipped my mind, and it’s not like this is just another sequel we must endure. Universal made the huge step to release the film in both theaters and digitally. That seemed like a much bigger deal a few weeks ago when we thought there might be theatrical releases, but now it’s mainly just a pain in the butt to exhibitors who would’ve preferred it be delayed.
So in a way, we’re pretty fortunate to get one of the year’s bigger movies right now, even if it is Trolls World Tour. The sequel returns Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, James Corden and more as the pop music-loving Trolls. They come to learn the world is a much bigger place than they knew, and other troll villages have their own forms of music. Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), queen of the Hard Rock trolls, plans to upstage them all and turn everyone into hard rock zombies.
In the two newly-released clips, we see the remaining pop trolls coming to grips with the kidnapping of Queen Poppy (Kendrick). The second finds the trolls engaging in a little pop medley, which gets thumbs up from me for using the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe”, even as it gets the gas face for using “Who Let the Dogs Out.” That song should be forever banned.
Trolls World Tour hits theaters and VOD on April 10th.
