Due to the global pandemic currently going on, it’s caused quite a stir in the cinematic release schedule, leading to certain titles to move towards a digital release. One such film is Dreamworks animation Trolls World Tour, a sequel to the popular and hugely entertaining flick that surprised audience members upon its release four years ago. Bringing back Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick, the film also welcomes back director Walt Dohrn, and we had the pleasure of sitting down with him to discuss this feature (you know, back when people were allowed to meet other people).
With Dohrn we discuss the balance in perpetuating our differences without veering into stereotyping, and on collaborating with Justin Timberlake who takes on a producing role in the film. He also talks about having the name Walt, directing the likes of Sam Rockwell and Mary J Blige, and on creating the film’s unique aesthetic. And also tells us whether there may be a third entry into this enjoyable franchise…
Watch the full interview below:
Poppy and Branch discover that there are six different troll tribes scattered over six different lands. Each tribe is also devoted to six different kinds of music — funk, country, techno, classical, pop and rock. When rockers Queen Barb and King Thrash set out to destroy the other music, Poppy and Branch embark on a daring mission to unite the trolls and save the diverse melodies from becoming extinct.
Trolls World Tour is available at home on-demand from April 6th
