As Justin Timberlake's Oscar-nominated earworm declared, you can't stop the feeling, and apparently, you can't stop the "Trolls" franchise, either: The series will continue with "Trolls 2," which studio DreamWorks officially announced on Tuesday.
In a Twitter post, DreamWorks revealed that the sequel to the hit 2016 animated flick about the lovable dolls with wacky hair is due out on April 10, 2020, and it will feature the return of the first film's two biggest stars. Justin Timberlake is set to reprise his role as Branch, while Anna Kendrick will be back as Poppy.

No additional intel about the follow-up has been revealed just yet, though we imagine that Timberlake will once again be contributing some original music to the flick. The singer-actor was nominated for an Academy Award this year for the tune "Can't Stop the Feeling!," which he performed to open the now-infamous ceremony. (A performance that included a reunion with his onetime "Mickey Mouse Club" costar, Ryan Gosling.)
Also unclear right now is just how many other original stars will also return. In addition to Timberlake and Kendrick, the flick's starry voice cast also included Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Russell Brand, Zooey Deschanel, Jeffrey Tambor,Christine Baranski, James Corden, and Gwen Stefani.
Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
