Trolls World Tour is an all-star sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s 2016 musical hit. Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake are the stars in this new adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before. Poppy (Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) discover that they are but one of six different Trolls tribes scattered over six different lands. The tribes are devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a whole lot louder.
Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), is a member of hard rock royalty. Aided by her father King Thrash (Ozzy Osbourne), she wants to destroy all other kinds of music to let rock reign supreme. With the fate of the world at stake, Poppy and Branch, along with their friends — Biggie (James Corden), Chenille (Caroline Hjelt), Satin (Aino Jawo), Cooper (Ron Funches) and Guy Diamond (Kunal Nayyar) — set out to visit all the other lands to unify the Trolls in harmony against Barb, who’s looking to upstage them all.
