The small, colourful, and jolly Trolls like to sing, dance, and hug. One moment their lives are cupcakes and rainbows, the next they are captured by the Bergens, their ancient nemeses, who believe they must eat a Troll to become happy. Poppy and her paranoid friend Branch venture out to save the others. Unlike The Lego Movie, which was also based on a toyline, this candy-coloured animation doesn’t offer inspiration, only extremely formulaic storytelling and characters who burst into song every few minutes.
