Trolls is a 2016 American 3D computer-animated musical film based on the Troll dolls created by Thomas Dam. The film was directed by Mike Mitchell and co-directed by Walt Dohrn, written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger and based on a story by Erica Rivinoja. The film features the voices of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden and Gwen Stefani.

The 33rd animated feature film produced by DreamWorks Animation, the film premiered on October 8, 2016, at the BFI London Film Festival and was theatrically released in the United States on November 4, 2016, by 20th Century Fox. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, grossed $344 million worldwide against its $125 million budget and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for "Can't Stop the Feeling!".

A sequel, Trolls World Tour, was released on April 10th 2020 on digital due to COVID-19, with Kendrick and Timberlake reprising their roles.

Plot

After the Bergens invade Troll Village, Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious, curmudgeonly Branch (Justin Timberlake) set off on a journey to rescue her friends. Their mission is full of adventure and mishaps, as this mismatched duo try to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done.

Why It Rocks

  1. The animation is very unique compared to most DreamWorks movies, giving it a scrapbook aesthetic with pretty much everything being made out of felt.
  2. The musical numbers, both original and remixed, are very well implemented and quite catchy.
  3. Likable characters.
  4. The beginning scene about how Princess Poppy's father saved every troll and her was really interesting.
  5. The acting, particularly from Justin Timberlake, is top notch and makes it seem like the role was tailor made for the actors.
  6. The ending was a great sendoff for the movie.
  7. Poppy and Branch have a solid dynamic, with Poppy's upbeat optimism playing off Branch's cynicism quite well.
  8. Decent character development. Branch started off as a character who is not so bright but a cynic and later became nicer and more open-minded in the rest of the film.
  9. Branch's grandmother's death backstory was pretty emotional despite it being dark.
  10. There are mostly some funny and hilarious moments.
  11. Lots of cute moments.

Bad Qualities

  1. There are several dull pop culture references to try being cool and hip, such as a troll screaming "Yolo!", and all of the songs being pop remixes.
  2. The humor can be gross to some people. For example, a character has the ability to poop cupcakes.
  3. Despite the film being aimed at children, some songs are not really for kids, such as Gorillaz's "Clint Eastwood".

Trivia

  • This is one of the rare Dreamworks films to date that would come out in the UK before being released a month later in the USA on the same year.

I didn't really like this film either because of how childish it seems to be. But somehow, I did not finish it yet and I actually would be willing to.

I'm suprised with the amount of people who like this, since it isn't very good IMO, even if I can see why people liked it.

I was OBSESSED with the movie when I was 10-11 years old and I even liked the Netflix TV show spin-off.
