The new Trolls movie, Trolls Band Together, is filled with reunions and action-packed, all-star, rainbow-colored adventures. The holiday film stars Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake as they return for the new chapter in DreamWorks Animation’s blockbuster musical franchise: Trolls Band Together

The third installment of the Trolls franchise follows Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) who are officially a couple. As they grow closer, Poppy finds out that Branch has a secret he’s been keeping, he was once part of the boy band BroZone with his four brothers. BroZone disbanded when Branch was still a baby, as did the family, and Branch hasn’t seen his brothers since. But when Floyd is kidnapped for his musical talents by a pair of pop-star villains— Velvet (Emmy-winner Amy Schumer) and Veneer (Grammy-winner and Tony nominee Andrew Rannells)— Branch and Poppy embark on a harrowing and emotional journey to reunite the other brothers and rescue Floyd from a fate even worse than pop-culture obscurity.
