The trailer for Trolls World Tour debuted Thursday.
The DreamWorks Animation sequel follows Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) as they try to rally the different troll tribes to save music from the hard-rocking Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), who wants to destroy all music but rock.
The trailer opens up with Anna Kendrick singing “The Sound of Silence” — the classic Simon & Garfunkel song that fans will remember from the first film — as it pans down from a smiling moon to the singing Poppy and plants and creatures surrounding her. She is interrupted by a moody goth troll who emerges from the ground playing a guitar solo, and all the trolls but Poppy flee in fear.
After the experience, Poppy investigates who the mystery intruder was, discovering that there are six troll tribes, each dedicated to a genre of music: pop, funk, classical, techno, country and rock. “We need to unite all the trolls because if we don’t stop her, who will?” Poppy says of Queen Barb.
The movie will feature original music by Timberlake, who earned an Oscar nomination for the song “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” which he wrote for the first film.
The musical sequel will also feature the voices of Ozzy Osbourne, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Anderson.Paak, Sam Rockwell and more.
Trolls World Tour will hit theater in April 2020. Watch the full trailer above.
