Troll dolls have been a toy staple for generations. According to Time, the first Troll was created in 1959 by a Danish woodworker and then took off in the early 1960s.

Fast forward to the 2010s, Trolls had a resurgence when DreamWorks Animation released Trolls the movie in 2016 and the sequel, Trolls World Tour in 2020.

Trolls Movies

The movies are bright, fun, with incredible soundtracks filled with bubbly covers of long-time favorite songs.

The first movie follows Poppy, played by Maine's own Anna Kendrick as she tries to rescue her troll community from the Bergens that have a tradition of eating trolls so they can experience happiness. She's joined on her quest by Branch, played by Justin Timberlake.

In the sequel, Trolls World Tour, Poppy finds that there are other trolls in the world, each community focused on a different genre of music, and the rock trolls want to take over.
