Batten down the hatches; DreamWorks has unleashed its colorful army of Trolls with today’s first, full-length trailer for Mike Mitchell, Walt Dohrn and Gina Shay’s animated romp.
That’s the creative dream team behind Shrek Forever After, only this time the threesome will be trading fantastical kingdoms and age-old curses for a bona fide ’90s phenomenon. Yes, those pint-sized critters are bound for the big-screen and whether or not you believe Hollywood is once again cashing in on the nostalgia factor, the ensemble cast that DreamWorks has assembled for Trolls is nothing short of stellar.
Assuming the lead roles for this one are Pitch Perfect stalwart Anna Kendrick and musician-cum-actor Justin Timberlake – he penned the hit single “Can’t Stop The Feeling” to conicide with the movie’s release – who will be joined in the voice booth by – deep breath – Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Quvenzhané Wallis, with John Cleese and Gwen Stefani. And…exhale.
Trolls is expected to scurry into theaters in time for November 4, when DreamWorks’ bright and breezy animation will be squaring off against a certain Sorcerer Supreme.

This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach.
