Your favourite big-hair toy of the 90s (and still a favourite in bingo halls!) is back in a big way!

That’s right, Trolls are making a comeback and this time, they’re cute, they sing, dance and seem destined to win over the next generation. How did DreamWorks Animation take the hard plastic, big rainbow-hair toys nearly everyone had forgotten and turned them into cute, plush-looking bundles of adorableness that are likely to steal your heart?

Get an inside look at the character design and animation of Trolls with Dave Burgess, the Head of Character Animation at DreamWorks Animation. Sharing inspiration clips, early concept art and pre-production animation, he will walk through the evolving character design of the new Trolls!

Based on the popular troll dolls created by Thomas Dam, Trolls is a 3D computer animated musical comedy from DreamWorks Animation, directed by Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After). Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick) is an upbeat, if slightly naïve, Troll who inherits her crown on the day her people face the first challenge that can’t be solved with a song or a hug. Accompanied by Branch (Justin Timberlake), she ventures “far beyond the only world they have ever known” in a quest that tests their strength. Full of playful designs, The Art of Trolls showcases hundreds of pieces of concept and production art to illustrate how DreamWorks’ team of talented artists created an enchanting reinterpretation of the Trolls phenomenon that has gripped popular culture for decades.
