Trolls World Tour storyline: What happens in the Trolls sequel?

In an adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before, Poppy and Branch discover that they are members of just one of six different Troll tribes scattered over six different lands and devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. 

Their world is about to get a lot bigger - and a whole lot louder.

A member of hard-rock royalty, Queen Barb (Rachel Bloom), aided by her father King Thrash (Ozzy Osbourne), wants to destroy all other kinds of music so that rock can reign supreme. 

With the fate of the world at stake, Poppy and Branch, along with their friends - Biggie (James Corden), Chenille (Caroline Hjelt), Satin (Aino Jawo), Cooper (Ron Funches) and Guy Diamond (Kunal Nayyar) - set out to visit all the other lands to unify the Trolls in harmony against Barb.

From Anna Kendrick to Justin Timberlake: Who voices the characters in Trolls World Tour?

Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Into the Woods) returns as the voice of Poppy - the ever-optimistic Queen of the Trolls.

She's joined by Justin Timberlake (The Social Network, In Time) who's back as the voice of Branch - an over-cautious pessimist Troll survivalist.

James Corden (Gavin & Stacey, Peter Rabbit) also returns as the voice of Biggie - a chubby, friendly Troll, alongside Ozzy Osbourne as King Thrash and Rachel Bloom as Queen Barb.

Trolls World Tour also boasts one of the largest, and most acclaimed, groups of musical talent ever assembled for an animated film to play the members of the different musical tribes.
