As if dominating box offices upon its November 2016 release was not enough, 2017 saw music aboard its official accompanying soundtrack nominated for Academy and Grammy Awards (the latter granted to Justin Timberlake for the film’s chart-topping hit ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling‘).
Now, as the animated flick nears the $350 million mark in revenue generated, Universal and DreamWorks Animation announces it will be getting a follow-up…
“…Trolls is getting a sequel, and stars Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake will be back for it. Universal set an April 10, 2020, release for Trolls 2, a date they had set aside earlier as an untitled Universal event film.”
Word has it the first edition’s director, Mike Mitchell, will not be returning for its sequel.
