Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski Join DreamWorks Musical Comedy TROLLS
DreamWorks Animation is welcoming a starry voice cast for its upcoming musical comedy TROLLS, and there are some musical theatre names in the mix.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, joining previously announced Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake (who is also writing original music for the project) are Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor, Christine Baranski, John Cleese, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Quvenzhané Wallis.
"This mix of comedic and musical star power is every filmmaker's dream," director Mike Mitchell said in a statement. Mitchell co-directs with Walt Dohrn, with whom he teamed on SHREK FOREVER AFTER.
TROLLS centers on "overly optimistic Trolls with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach."
TROLLS will hit the big screen on November 4, 2016 after an October 13th release in Europe.
