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.”

Being in Trolls is such a huge opportunity for Gwen and we couldn’t feel any more proud and excited for her! Hopefully the soundtrack has an open spot for a new song, too. We’ll keep updating the post with more information once it’s available.

  1. Another big deal for Gwen. The Voice has opened so many doors for her. Hopefully she will also contribute some songs to the soundtrack.

  2. So exciting! According to wikipedia the movie will be a musical comedy. Icona Pop, Justin Timberlake will also be voicing other characters. I hope Gwen sings a song. That would be awesome!

  3. I don’t know if you’ve seen, but Gwen was featured on Rolling Stone’s list of the 45 most anticipated albums of 2016!

  4. Lol I still am more doubtful than hopeful that this album will get released. I don’t think she’ll be releasing another single for awhile now that the voice is over

  5. I don’t think Gwen’s the record is on hold at all… She simply wasn’t done writing and recording at the end of in 2015 and probably Interscope didn’t want to release her album next to Adele and Justin Bieber anyways… I am pretty sure this album will finally see the light of day in 2016 especially since UTLY did surprisingly well and turned out to be a real airplay hit. They should release this album around spring and send Gwen on the road in summer for promotion. If she returned to The Voice in fall, she could further promote the album and perform her thrid single on the show. I am very optimistic that 2016 will be a great year for us.

    1. And if the Voice does not happen? She cant keep using releasing singles only cause she’s on the show. I’ve noticed she only talks about recording when she’s on TV, after that, something always happen. After all these years, I will believe when I see it for pre order. I love Gwen and ND, but being a fan for 20 years has thought me to wait.

  6. I love this!!! All of those movies are big hits! Wish it wasn’t so far away though. And as far as her album… If she really is pregnant… I don’t see the album coming soon.. (Ndlover, ignore this comment please)

  7. And why are some of you worried the album won’t be released? It’s not like she’s gonna spend months voicing her character lol She’s not even the main character. Chill!

  8. Gwen must have some seriously resilient eggs lol. Very very unlikely.

    I hope YYY’s prediction comes true. Stay inspired, stay focused Gwen !

  9. I’m just saying, I don’t believe it either. But I was shocked by the divorce, shocked that she got with Blake… So idk… 3 magazine covers reporting it…

  10. I am happy for her. I don’t think this will have a major impact on the timeline of the record. I doubt the voice over work will take a a super long time. I bet she has a more minor role. Gwen has wanted to do this work for awhile, remember Madagascar? She was almost cast as Gloria the hippo. Good for her more exposure is always good.
