Sadly this is not another entry in the Troll film saga. Having found massive success animating creepy, small, cloying things in the Despicable Me films, Dreamworks will double-down and next turn their attention to Trolls, a film based on the Olsen twin-like troll dolls that have reemerged as a toy fad every other decade since the ’60s like the herpes of the toy world. The Wrap reports that Anna Kendrick will lead the voice cast. She will play “Poppy, the relentlessly upbeat princess at the center of Trolls, a fun-filled adventure that will reveal the story behind the beloved, colorful nature of the Trolls‘ trademark, gravity-defying hair.”

If that origin is just hairspray that will be a bit of a disappointment.

That headline is painfully vague and uninformative, but the last part sort of rhymes, so I’m calling it a win. What is meant to be conveyed is that Dreamworks, after having optioned the movie rights for Trolls and rolled into development in 2010, has decided to raise the stakes by purchasing the whole damn brand.

This is probably in an effort to vertically integrate and capture the licensing and toy rights for what they expect to be an animated blockbuster, but a funnier explanation would be that Jeffrey Katzenberg really enjoys combing their hair.

No release date has been announced, but expect something summer-y.
