“Trolls” went on to make $339 million worldwide. “Can’t Stop the Feeling” landed an Oscar nomination for best song, which Justin Timberlake performed as the opening number at this year’s Oscars.

Universal Pictures will take over as distributor following its acquisition of DreamWorks Animation Studios last year.

The first film follows Poppy, the happiest Troll ever born, and the curmudgeonly Branch set off on a journey to rescue her friends after the Bergens invade Troll Village.

    I actually want to see more of Creek, I liked him best of all of them. And he wasn’t too bad, it was that or get eaten.

      The hell are you talking about idiot? Creek literally ratted out everyone else to save his selfish ass, it’s fair.

    Doesn’t make sense. Trolls didn’t make tons of money.

      339 million worldwide.. It seems like they did well enough to make another one if they want. Personally, I’d love to see it. The ending was left at a spot just to do so.
