Kendrick voices Poppy, our optimistic, wild-haired heroine. She sings, she dances, she has glitter freckles — she's overall adorable.


The movie's going to feature a lot of musical numbers, both old and new. Timberlake wrote four original songs for the film and also served as Executive Music Producer. "This is my first time, I’ve never been the music producer for a film," he said at a press event last week.

The movie also features covers of classics, like "The Sound of Silence" by Simon and Garfunkel, music by Earth, Wind & Fire, "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper, and "Clint Eastwood" by Gorillaz.


"Some 7-year-old’s going to walk away [from this movie] knowing 'The Sound of Silence,' which is very cool," Timberlake said.

And the two stars seemed to have a great time working together. "It’s been fun to work specifically with Anna," Timberlake said, "because she’s such a good singer. She doesn’t fancy herself that, but I’m pretty snobby anyway and it’s been so much fun to work with her."

"[Trolls] had no real history, so we got to create an entire world," Walt Dohrm, the film's co-director said.


"We wanted to get back to that handcrafted feel. We wanted everything to look handmade, like carpet [and] felt."
