The Trolls have lived for 20 years without the fear of being eaten by the Bergens but when they have their 20-year celebration it becomes so loud that a Bergen finds them and kidnap princess Poppy’s friends. Poppy makes it her mission to rescue them and gets help from the anti-happy Troll Branch.
What did I just watch? Was it Cinderella the troll edition, or was it perhaps Breaking Bad the troll edition? Well you can’t deny that this was a colorful and glittery movie. I actually was very impressed by the animation, it was great. The movie itself was sometimes quite interesting and sometimes quite boring. I actually really enjoy animated movies with a lot of song and dance in them, and I therefore enjoyed this one. It had really great music. The plot however was a bit messy, and not so coherent.
I’m very surprised I almost cried when this is supposed to be such a happy movie. However, I can see how the movie would have been a bit tedious if there weren’t any sad scenes. The characters were also very likable and I think both Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake did a great job. I did however have a small problem, since I’m used to watching animated movies in Swedish, the voices don’t bother me because I don’t know who it is. With this one however I just thought of Anna Kendrick every time she spoke and that did make the movie a bit annoying sometimes. I guess I just have to practice on not thinking about who the voice actually belongs to. Fun fact btw, one of my dream job is to be a Voice Over for an animated movie or TV-show. So back to the movie… I would say that it was fun to watch it, but I probably wouldn’t watch it a second time. Chill afternoon movie!
