Dreamworks has dropped the second trailer for its upcoming animated feature, Trolls Band Together, coming to theaters November 17.
Visually, the new trailer doesn’t offer much that we haven’t already seen from the franchise, although there is a bit more of the film’s fun psychedelic 2d animation that we saw in the first trailer. However, the three-minute spot does feature an original song, Better Place, the first new song Nsync has performed together in 20 years.
When the first Band Together trailer came out in March, we spoke with director Walt Dohrn and producer Gina Shay about continuing the popular franchise, what they did different this time, and that trippy 2d scene.
Here’s what we know about Trolls Band Together:
- Band Together is helmed by returning director Dohrn and co-directed by Tim Heitz.
- Synopsis: “Poppy and Branch are now officially, finally, a couple! As they grow closer, Poppy discovers that Branch has a secret past. He was once part of her favorite boyband phenomenon, BroZone, with his four brothers: Floyd, John Dory, Spruce, and Clay. BroZone disbanded when Branch was still a baby, as did the family, and Branch hasn’t seen his brothers since. But when Branch’s bro Floyd is kidnapped for his musical talents by a pair of nefarious pop-star villains — Velvet and Veneer — 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.
- New voice actors joining the franchise in Band Together include Amy Schumer, Andrew Rannels, Troye Sivan, Eric André, Daveed Diggs, Kud Cudi, Camila Cabello, Zosia Mamet, and RuPaul Charles. Returning actors include Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Aino Jawo, Caroline Hjelt, Anderson Paak, Ron Funches, Kunal Nayyar, and Kenan Thompson.
