I went to see the movie Trolls and knew nothing about it. It was delightfully enjoyable. I purchased the soundtrack. Here are 10 things I learned from Trolls:
- It is a “3D computer animated musical comedy”.
- It’s voiced by Anna Kendrick, John Cleese, Christine Baransky, Justin Timberlake (JT), Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, Jeffrey Tambor, and Gwen Stefani.
- The basic plot is about two trolls saving their village from Bergens who eat trolls to find happiness.
- The budget was $125 million and it has grossed $269 million to date.
- The trolls are happy and they sing, dance, and hug frequently, the latter hourly to a timer.
- JT was the executive producer for the music.
- JT, Ariana Grande, and Earth Wind and Fire are also on the soundtrack.
- The tag line is “find your happy place”.
- It’s a DreamWorks production.
- It’s the second time JT has worked with a cast member from “The Big Bang Theory”.
Peace, love, gratitude, compassion and blessings.
