Since King Peppy saved his subjects from the voracious mountains, he, his daughter Poppy (spoken by Lena Meyer-Landrut) and the other trolls live happily in the troll village. There they celebrate, sing and dance as often as they can. Only Branch (Mark Forster) doesn't feel like celebrating. He prefers to prepare himself for the next attack of the mountains, which will come as sure as the next troll party... After all, the giants live in the belief that only by eating a troll can they attain bliss. And indeed: since Prince Gristl absolutely wants to eat his first troll, the outcast boss sets off on a search for the troll village in the hope that she will regain her high position when she brings the trolls to the prince. After twenty years in exile, she has finally reached the goal of her dreams - but she didn't count on the courage of the fighting Poppy, who, together with Branch, does everything she can to free the kidnapped trolls from the clutches of the hungry mountains…
And again toys have made it onto the big screen. With "Trolls" the magic troll dolls, which with their long coloured hair were especially popular in the USA and enjoyed great popularity in the 80s and 90s but also here in Germany, come to the cinema. The colourful, constantly singing figures will surely take little children quickly into their hearts. And there will certainly be some adult troll fans who will have a lot of fun in this very colourful hustle and bustle. But that doesn't make a good movie out of the whole thing. The story is a somewhat loveless mixture of "The Smurfs" and "Cinderella" with a pinch of "Shrek", the obligatory dance interludes are almost standard in modern animated films and even the humor is breaking new ground.
Although there are some quite amusing moments, the film lacks every spark of independent charm and originality. One has the feeling that the film was staged according to a very clear modular system, whereby each individual element must have proven itself in many other animated films. Even though the squeaky colorful fairy tale world radiates its own character at times, there are still no ideas of its own that would set the film apart from the mass of 3D computer animation films.
Who doesn't have the claim to see something fresh, unspent and who would like to go on an almost psychedelic troll trip, might like this musical fairy tale. The kindness of the figures is sufficient for this. But those who expect more than a mix of only lukewarmly warmed ingredients will not only be annoyed by the vocal parts. Therefore: quite nice, but really only something for animation film fans who like it colorful, colorful and colorful again! ]
