Trolls (2016)

Here's a cute, creative, fun, animated flick full of music. It's a bit like The Grinch, but with trolls. Trolls, you know? Like the little ones in the cover image.

The Bergens (like the evil-looking one in the cover image) are the threat here - and their unhealthy obsession to eat trolls in order to gain happiness. To make a long story short: one day the trolls are kidnapped, and Poppy - the great king's daughter, embarks on a quest to get them back! She's the most positive one of the bunch, and by her side she has Branch, who is all the opposite. Of course, polar opposites attract each other, even if takes a while before they realize it.

They're voiced by Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake, btw, and there's some Gwen Stefani, Russell Brand, James Corden and even some John Cleese in there too - playing the Bergen king of all people bergens.

The voicing is good, the animation's refreshingly imaginative - with some musical bits, and plenty of comedy and atmosphere. With a crazy creative bunch of main characters and suitable milieu in style of old fairy tales, it makes for a pretty fast-paced and feelgood adventure! One that appeals to all ages, and has a moral to it too: happiness is inside all of us. Sometimes, we just need some help to bring it out.

Or better yet, here's my personal interpretation: you don't need to eat to be happy. You're already full of it! ;)

Overall it was a bit fast and frantic sometimes, with a somewhat anti-climatic finale (too simple), but I did get a few laughs, and a lingering smile when it's all over.

 rated 3/5: not bad
