DreamWorks’ furry critters run rampant – and belt out a song or two – in today’s all-new clip for Trolls, the upcoming animation directed by the studio’s Shrek dream team, Mike Mitchell, Walt Dohrn and Gina Shay.
Hailing from San Diego Comic-Con, the extended snippet sheds light on Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake’s pint-sized protagonists, as they squabble under a blanket of stars. Timberlake, who appears to be playing the grouchier Troll of the two, struggles to get some shut-eye, prompting Kendrick’s enthused critter to offer a delicate over of Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence.”
They’ll be joined for the movie by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ron Funches, Icona Pop, Beasts of the Southern Wild breakout Quvenzhané Wallis, with John Cleese and Gwen Stefani. And…exhale.
Come November 4, Trolls will test its might against notable heavy-hitters in the vein of Miles Teller boxing drama Bleed for This, Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Mel Gibson’s WWII thriller Hacksaw Ridge and Loving.
From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny and irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks’ Trolls. 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.
