Puss in Boots: The Last Wish may have teased a return to the world of Shrek, but Dreamworks is going to be coming back to one of their newer musical IPs with the next Trolls movie.
Just in, we have a new trailer for Trolls Band Together; and it has the film tackling boy bands now. Check this out:
Here’s the official description:
After two films of true friendship and relentless flirting, Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) are now officially, finally, a couple (#broppy)! As they grow closer, Poppy discovers that Branch has a secret past. He was once part of her favorite boyband phenomenon, BroZone, with his four brothers: Floyd (Golden Globe nominated electropop sensation Troye Sivan), John Dory (Eric André; Sing 2), Spruce (Grammy winner Daveed Diggs; Hamilton) and Clay (Grammy winner Kid Cudi; Don’t Look Up). BroZone disbanded when Branch was still a baby, as did the family, and Branch hasn’t seen his brothers since.
But when Branch’s bro Floyd is kidnapped for his musical talents by a pair of nefarious pop-star villains—Velvet (Emmy winner Amy Schumer; Trainwreck) and Veneer (Grammy winner and Tony nominee Andrew Rannells; The Book of Mormon)—Branch and Poppy embark on a harrowing and emotional journey to reunite the other brothers and rescue Floyd from a fate even worse than pop-culture obscurity.
With the second movie covering the different types of Trolls and the different musical genres, I was pretty curious where a sequel could go. I guess it’s pretty funny that they decided to embrace boy bands, seeing that Justin Timberlake was a member of NSYNC before he was starring in movies and doing music videos with Lonely Island.
Though Millenials and Gen-Z could be too old to be nostalgic about the Trolls franchise, I think it’s one of the better films to come out of Dreamworks. Not only does the world look unique, but the music is definitely the strongest element of these films.
Trolls Band Together is expected to release in theaters on Nov. 17.
