From the creators of Shrek comes this sunny, colourful, animated adventure, available now on Virgin Movies. The Trolls are tiny technicolour creatures who live in a perpetual state of happiness spending their days joyfully singing and dancing. They are led by the happiest of them all, Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick), who decides to throw a big party.
The noise of the party attracts the attention of the Bergens, large glum creatures who are never ever happy, except for when they eat a Troll. The Bergens kidnap a group of partying Trolls with the intention of gobbling them up. Princess Poppy manages to escape and is the only one brave enough to attempt a rescue mission for the captured Troll.
Meanwhile, living on the outskirts of Troll society is a grey and unhappy Troll named Branch (Justin Timberlake) whose unhappy memories prevent him from joining in the happiness of his fellow Trolls. Branch finds himself caught up in Poppy’s mission and reluctantly agrees to help her. The two unlikely comrades set out on the perilous quest and along the way, they discover that they actually quite like each other…
