Timberlake the Troll

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake is the latest addition to Dreamworks Animation musical comedy Trolls.

The film features the much loved, world-famous crazy-haired figures, created in Denmark in the 1930s by fisherman’s son, Thomas Dam, based on the folk tales of his childhood.  From wood to rubber, with an explosion of popularity from the 1960s onwards, the trolls have been a part of a million children’s lives but this is the first time they’ve made an appearance on the big screen.

Timberlake will lend his considerable vocal talents to a Scandinavian troll called Branch, who has adventures with the equally gifted Anna Kendrick. The Pitch Perfect 2 star plays Princess Poppy.  Also starring are Jason Schwartzman and Chloë Grace Moretz.

Director Mike Mitchell‘s previous work includes Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Sky High, Shrek Forever After, Alvin & The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.

Trolls  scheduled for a November 2016 release from 20th Century Fox.
