Based on the crazy-haired toys that were big business in the 80s. “Trolls” features a colorful troupe of lovable characters who love to sing, dance and play. It’s 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. Troll Princess Poppy is given her crown on the same day that a mysterious giant arrives, but he doesn’t want to sing or play. Poppy and Branch go on a rescue mission that takes them further away from home than they’ve ever been. It’s a journey that will challenge their courage and show their true colors.
