Universal Sets 'Trolls' Sequel for 2020 Debut
Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake will reprise their roles in the follow-up to the 2016 animated hit.
Universal just can't stop the feeling.
The studio announced it will release DreamWorks' sequel to Trolls. Its release date has been set for April 10, 2020, a date previously reserved for an untitled Universal event film.
Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake will reprise their roles as the eternal optimist Poppy and the curmudgeon Branch in the new musical comedy-adventure.
Inspired by the popular dolls of the 1960s, Mike Mitchell's Trolls featured a script by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, and James Corden, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Christine Baranski, John Cleese, Jeffrey Tambor and Quvenzhane Wallis were among those featured in the voice cast. It also nabbed an Oscar nomination for best original song for Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling!" track.
Fox released Trolls late last year, and the animated film has grossed $339 million worldwide.
