DreamWorks Animation has cast Anna Kendrick in their upcoming animated musical Trolls. The movie is based on those ridiculous looking, crazy haired Troll toys that used to be popular.
Trolls are a popular toy line that collectors were really into in the 1960s and were later resurrected again in the 1990s. I don't even know if Trolls are still a thing or not, I don't see why they would be. I like Kendrick though, she a very talented actress and I hope this will be a good project for her.
Kendrick has two musical films in development at the moment, so the musical movie streak continues. The first is Disney’s Into the Woods, and they other is Universal’s Pitch Perfect 2.
Shrek Forever After director Mike Mitchell will helm Trolls, and this is what he had to say about the casting in a statement:
“Anna has proven herself to be a brilliant actress with an amazing singing voice. She’ll inject Poppy with the exact mix of spirit, sass and song that will no doubt give a whole new life to the iconic Troll dolls.”
The movie is set to be released on November 4th, 2016.
