In an 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 Troll tribes scattered over six different lands and 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.
Warning: May Contain Spoilers
In Trolls World Tour, the Trolls from the first movie discover that they are but one of six different tribes each devoted to a different form of music: Pop, Funk, Classical, Techno, Country and Rock. The story begins with the Rock Trolls on a warpath to unite all the Trolls into One Nation Under Rock.
It may seem predictable and conforming to stereotypes that the Rock Trolls are the antagonists, but the movie’s underlying message is a good and worthy one.
2016’s Trolls did feature music, but Trolls World Tour gives more bang for the buck by featuring a lot more songs, with a heavier emphasis on musical numbers compared to its predecessor. Almost every scene comes with music, as the movie bombards you with song after song.Adults may find that either endearing or annoying, but kids will surely love it.Trolls World Tour remains mostly filled with pop music and songs. Don’t expect much of Rock music or any of the other genres. The Pop Trolls are still the main protagonists, after all, and pop is still more popular with kids than anything else.
Let’s also not forget that the real reason that the music is great owes itself to the impressive cast consisting of actual singers and musicians. We have Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake returning as Queen Poppy and Branch, both of whom make a cute couple. We also have Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani, K-Pop group Red Velvet, the legendary Ozzy Osbourne, and more.
The visuals in Trolls World Tour might not be as impressive (tech-wise or plot-wise) as the likes of Frozen 2 or Toy Story 4, but it makes up for that in other ways. The different tribes of Trolls also provide Dreamworks animators with the chance to show off their skills in the art of animation.
Trolls World Tour teaches us to embrace our differences to promote harmony, which is an essential lesson in today’s increasingly-divided era.
It’s fun, beautiful, and has lots of music, and that’s enough, especially with the added advantage of having a great and timely message for the youth.
Recommended to watch with Kids, they will love it.
Final Score: [6/10]
