Justin Timberlake has signed on to co-star in DreamWorks Animation’s upcoming musical comedy “Trolls” alongside Anna Kendrick, the studio announced today.
The film will be released on Nov. 4, 2016, by 20th Century Fox.
The director, Mike Mitchell, co-director Walt Dohrn and producer Gina
Shay all worked together on “Shrek Forever After.”
The Troll doll phenomenon was born in 1959 when a Danish fisherman and
woodcutter, too poor to afford a Christmas present for his young daughter,
carved a doll for her based on the legendary Scandinavian troll.
Troll dolls became one of the biggest toy crazes of the 1960s and
experienced a resurgence in popularity in the 1990s.
