Whilst 2016 has been overstuffed with lacklsutre blockbusters, unncessary sequels and tiresome reboots, it has also been crammed with an overabundance of animated films and the Fall movie season is set to bring us plenty more. One of which is Trolls, and a new trailer for the bubbly animation has arrived.

Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick are set to voice two trolls, Branch and Poppy, in this colourful animated musical from Dreamworks. The second trailer for the forthcoming film has been debuted so check it out below:

I'll be honest, I didn't love the first teaser we got a few months back, and I haven't really been looking forward to Trolls. However, this new trailer has me somewhat intrigued. For starters, it shows that the film may actually have some substance and a bit more emotion beyond the overty colourful, joyous and slap-happy antics teased thus far and I can also appreciate the poignancy of the music and the use of colour and animation in the main scene teased within this reveal. I still don't believe this is going to be one of the standout animated films of the year (it already has some tough competition in Zootropolis, and Moana and Sing are both yet to release too) but it looks like it could be a decent, fun little family flick with some catchy songs.

Here's your synopsis:
DreamWorks Animation’s TROLLS is an irreverent comedy extravaganza with incredible music! From the genius creators of SHREK, TROLLS stars Anna Kendrick as Poppy, the optimistic leader of the Trolls, and her polar opposite, Branch, played by Justin Timberlake. Together, this unlikely pair of Trolls must embark on an adventure that takes them far beyond the only world they’ve ever known.
With Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn at the helm, and starring the voice talents of Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden and Gwen Stefani, Trolls opens on October 21st, 2016.
