Gwen has announced that she’ll be appearing and voicing “DJ Suki”, a “rockin’ troll” featured in the upcoming Dreamworks animated film, Trolls! The film is based on the iconic Troll dolls which have been popular since the 1950s and are predominately known for coming in crazy colors and sizes.
Co-directed by Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn, Trolls is set to be released ahead of the holiday season on November 4, 2016 and is being distributed by 20th Century Fox in both 3D/2D theaters and IMAX 3D. Gwen is joining an all-star cast including Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick, James Corden, Kunal Nayyar and Russell Brand for the family-comedy feature. Justin Timberlake is also serving as executive music producer, and besides writing original music for the film, he is also overseeing the creative direction for Trolls.
According to ComingSoon.net, “the film, which will be a grand scale musical comedy centering around how the Trolls came into their vibrant and colorful hair, will be produced by Gina Shay (“Shrek Forever After“).” TheWrap.com also shared more the plot saying, “[Trolls] follows hardcore survivalist Branch (Timberlake) and Princess Poppy (Kendrick) as they embark on an epic adventure.”
