Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake reprise their roles in this sequel to Universal’s 2016 animated musical comedy, available on demand Friday.
More reassuring franchise-builder than innovative sequel, Trolls World Tour covers familiar ground, enhanced with some catchy musical and visual flourishes. The peace-loving forest denizens who love nothing more than celebrating music return again to defend their beloved traditions in another colorful adventure, but it feels too much like we’ve been here, done this already.
After acquiring rights to the diminutive dolls with the colorful, frizzy hair that were first popularized by Danish creator Thomas Dam in the 1960s, DreamWorks produced 2016’s Trolls with Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake in the lead roles, netting $347 million worldwide. It’s fair to say that the sequel won’t have the opportunity to remotely overtake that figure after Universal made the unprecedented decision to break the theatrical window, forgoing premium 3D screenings and shifting the movie’s release to pay-per-view, timed to the original premiere date at a $19.99 rental price in the U.S.
