The plot of the film has yet to be revealed, but the characters are said to venture “far beyond the only world they have ever known.” Timberlake and Kendrick serve as the leads, playing trolls named Branch and Princess Poppy, respectively.
The animated movie will be heavily focused on musical numbers and songs. In addition to starring, Timberlake serves as the executive music producer, and will write and perform original music for the movie.

Kendrick showed off her a cappella skills in the Pitch Perfect movies; Brand played a fictional rock star in both Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him to the Greek; and Corden co-starred in the Disney musical Into the Woods.
The creative team behind the film has also worked on a number of animated franchises, including Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and SpongeBob SquarePants. Trolls is slated to theaters on November 4, 2016. Check out the cast of characters in the photo gallery below.
