Trolls World Tour (titled as Trolls 2: World Tour from release) is a 2020 American computer-animated jukebox musical film produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Universal Pictures.
The film is a sequel to the 2016 film Trolls, directed by Walt Dohrn with co-direction by David P. Smith, produced by Gina Shay, and written by Jonathan Aibel, Glenn Berger, Elizabeth Tippet, Maya Forbes, and Wallace Wolodarsky, from a story by Aibel and Berger. The film stars Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar, Ozzy Osbourne, and Rachel Bloom.
Trolls World Tour was initially set to be theatrically released in the United States on April 10, 2020. However, due to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic shutting down cinemas around the U.S., the film will be released on digital rental on the same day.
After the events of the first film, Poppy and Branch discover that there are other different kinds of Trolls scattered over six different lands, each devoted to a different form of music: Pop, Funk, Classical, Techno, Country, and Rock.
Their world is about to get a lot bigger, and a whole lot louder, as member of hard-rock royalty, the evil Queen Barb, aided by her father King Thrash, wants to destroy all other kinds of music to let rock reign supreme.
With the fate of the world at stake, Poppy and Branch, along with their friends — Smidge, Legsly, Biggie, Satin and Chenille, Cooper, Guy Diamond and Tiny Diamond — set out to visit all the other lands to unify the Trolls in harmony against Barb, who’s looking to upstage them all and turn them into rock zombies. Meanwhile, Branch tries to find a way to tell Poppy how he feels about her.
