The 90s toy sensation Trolls is heading to the big screen. And here's the first trailer for the movie...

It’s nearly a year now since the release of the last DreamWorks Animation feature, Home. The studio unleashes Kung Fu Panda 3 in the Us later this month, before it comes to the UK in March. And then later this year is Trolls, a movie based on the hit toy characters of the 1990s.

Smells a bit of a Toy Story-esque idea? Well, judge for yourself.

Walt Dorhn and Mike Mitchell have directed this one, and it’s got a voice cast that includes Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, James Corden and Russell Brand. And we’ve got the first trailer and synopsis right here.
