Justin Timberlake to Star in DreamWorks Animation Musical ‘Trolls’

Justin Timberlake has joined Anna Kendrick to voice a lead role in DreamWorks Animation’s musical comedy “Trolls.”

Timberlake will provide the voice for Branch, a “hilariously hardcore” survivalist who joins Kendrick’s Princess Poppy in the adventure pic. “Trolls” will be released on Nov. 4, 2016 by 20th Century Fox.

“Trolls” is directed by Mike Mitchell (“Shrek Forever After”), co-directed by Walt Dohrn and produced by Gina Shay. It’s the first movie based on the wild-haired Troll dolls — which were created by Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam in 1959 for his daughter, based on the legendary Scandinavian troll, which became one of the biggest toy crazes of the 1960s.

Timberlake is represented by LBI Entertainment, Wright Entertainment Group and WME.
