DreamWorks also shared a synopsis for the film, which reveals that the sequel will pick up after the events of the first. Apparently, the "glitter and happiness in Troll Town" is soon to be interrupted; the plot summary teases an upcoming conflict and more musical adventures. It reads (via SlashFilm):
Continuing where the first film left off, it's all glitter and happiness in Troll Town until Queen Poppy and Branch make a surprising discovery — there are other Troll worlds beyond their own, each defined by a different genre of music. When a mysterious threat puts all the Trolls across the land in danger, Poppy, Branch, and their band of friends must embark on an epic quest through unfamiliar terrain to do the impossible: create harmony among the diverse Trolls to unite them against certain doom.
We're excited to see Poppy, Branch, and the gang return for song-filled fun. Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake will again voice the lead characters, setting fans up for more catchy tunes.
