Trolls World Tour (2020) Script

[sneezes]

[vocalizes fanfare]

["The Other Side" by SZA and Justin Timberlake playing]

CLOUD GUY: Once upon a time, there were two Trolls.

-One was named Poppy. -Hey. How's it going?

CLOUD GUY: The other was named Branch.

What's up?

CLOUD GUY: Together, they saved the world.

TROLLS: Hooray!

CLOUD GUY: Poppy became queen.

Branch found his true colors.

And the two of them became best friends.

[imitates fireworks popping]

Boom.

And that was that.

Pretty cute, right? Not to me.

I'm the type of cloud that goes for... this sorta thang.

[dogs barking, yapping]

Mm.

Anyhoo, what Poppy and Branch didn't know is that their world was a lot bigger than they knew.

Like, a lot, lot, lot, lot bigger!

Let me just take care of this real quick.

[electrical buzzing]

BARB: Hey, man.

There he is!

King Trollex of the Techno Trolls, right?

That's right. Who's asking?

Queen Barb.

Of the Hard Rock Trolls.

And I'm here to take your string, bro.

[plays loud ascending chord]

No way.

Ooh, don't do it, man.

If we lose our string, we lose our music.

You mean your bleeps and bloops?

Beep, beep, beep, beep-beep, boo.

[chuckles]: Yeah. That's not music.

Do you want to hear some real music?

Rockers!

[frightened murmuring]

[electrical buzzing]

Ah!

["Rock You Like a Hurricane" playing, rhythmic grunting]

♪ Yeah

♪ Oh

♪ Here I am

♪ Rock you like a hurricane!

[music stops]

[rumbling, electrical crackling]

Okay, okay, enough. Stop.

You're harshing the vibe we worked very hard to build to.

Oh, but by the end of my world tour, we're all gonna have the same vibe.

We're all gonna be one nation of Trolls, under rock.

[plays loud chord]

Who's ready to rock?!

Guy Diamond, what's wrong?

I'm having a baby!

BOTH: We're on jumpsuit duty.

I get to be a role model.

I don't want to be a big sister.

[Trolls murmuring happily]

Hey! That was some fancy footwork, Cooper.

Some people just got it.

Biggie, Mr. Dinkles, you two were on fire!

Yeah, sorry about that, Queen Poppy.

[squeaks]

I'm digging that new anklet, Legsly.

Thanks, Poppy.

Kisses and donuts and sprinkles!

Ah, what a Troll.

Tiny Diamond, welcome to the family, little buddy.

Thanks, Aunt Poppy.

And thanks to this silver-haired daddy of mine for bringing me into this world.

Oh.

I never knew my heart could be so full.

Peace and love. Bless up.

Tiny and Daddy out.

Oh. Okay, bye.

Hey, uh, Poppy, there's something I was hoping to ask you.

I-I mean, I guess it's something I want to tell you, more so.

-Uh-huh. -Uh, but listen.

You could feel free to respond to it, uh, with an answer, i-if you wanted.

Sure. What's up?

Uh, what's up is I, uh, I-I-I-I-I-I...

I wanted to tell you that...

Uh...

[groans]

You're crushing it at this queen thing.

Aw, Branch, thank you.

Being a good queen is the most important thing in the world to me.

Other than being your friend.

[echoing]: Friend, friend, friend, friend, friend, friend, friend.

Uh, five it up?

Huh. That could've been better. Let's try that again.

O-Okay, one more.

Huh. For some reason, we can't seem to make a good connection.

-[Poppy chuckles, Branch sighs] -[Fuzzbert babbling]

Oh, yes, Fuzzbert!

-Now, that's a good connection. -[groans]

BIGGIE: [screams] Poppy, help!

-Ooh. -Poppy!

-[shrieking, gasping] -[wild grunting]

Watch it, watch it!

-Biggie? -TROLL: Oh, run!

-[Trolls clamoring] -[Biggie screams]

Help!

I'm being harangued by a monster! [gasps]

-Someone stop it! [shrieks] -[wild grunting continues]

Gotcha! Ah! It's in my hair! It's in my hair!

-Get it out, get it out, get it out! -[Branch yells]

[shushing]

There you go.

-[eyes boinging] -[purring]

There you go. Calm down.

Who's a good boy?

What is that thing?

It's creepy.

BOTH: It's scary.

[auto-tuned]: And nasty.

-Hold me, Daddy. -Oh.

"To Queen Poppy."

[Trolls gasp]

Oh, don't worry, everyone.

It looks like it's just an invitation.

-Whew! -[relieved murmuring, sighing]

Just an invitation.

-COOPER: I love invitations. -[clears throat]

"Barb, the Queen of Rock, "announces her One Nation Under Rock World Tour.

"Bring your string to the biggest party the world has ever seen."

-Queen of Rock? -KING PEPPY: It's nothing!

It means nothing at all. It's just junk mail.

You don't need to worry about it.

I mean, quit looking at it, everyone.

Forget what you saw!

[chewing noisily]

[Branch yells]

-[grunting] -[shushing]

-There you go. There you go. -[eyes boinging]

-Calm down. Calm down. -[purring]

[quietly]: There you go.

Okay, I'm calm.

I'm calm.

Dad, what's going on?

Well, I have long feared this day would come.

I was hoping to protect you from this, Poppy.

Protect me?

I'm not a little kid anymore, Dad.

I'm the queen now.

You're right.

The truth is we are not alone in this world.

[eerie warbling]

-[warbling stops] -[stammers, shushes]

There are other kinds of Trolls.

-TROLL: What? -Wow. That's...

Dad, that's great.

The more Trolls, the merrier.

You don't understand.

These other Trolls aren't like us.

They're different.

Different how?

Different like Legsly?

I love being me.

-Or Fuzzbert? Or Smidge? -[Fuzzbert babbling]

Or Skyscraper Troll?

[in unison]: Yeah, different like me?

No, it's not that.

They're different in ways you can't even imagine.

-[vocalizing pop music] -You see, we love music with a hummable hook, with an upbeat melody, with a catchy rhythm that makes you want to snap your fingers, tap your toes and wiggle your butt.

That's our music.

That's what makes us Pop Trolls.

-Ooh. -It is. -Yes.

But these other Trolls, they sing different.

-[gasping] -They dance different.

Why, some of them can't even begin to grasp the concept of Hammer Time.

["U Can't Touch This" playing]

You can't touch that!

[screaming]

[Trolls clamoring]

-[crying] -[crying]

[screaming]

-♪ Stop. -[music and clamoring stop]

How about we break down to a smaller group?

[birds chirping]

It's a story as old as time.

[clears throat]

In the beginning, there was silence.

[singsongy]: Boring.

KING PEPPY: Until one day, someone made a sound.

-[plays note] -[Trolls oohing]

Our ancestors were so inspired by the sound, -they took six strings. -[melody plays]

And those six strings had the power to control all music.

They could play anything.

[harp strumming]

-[different styles playing] -Techno, funk, classical, country, hard rock and pop.

And every kind of music in between.

There was something for everyone.

It was one big party.

TROLLS: Yay!

KING PEPPY: But little by little, Trolls became intolerant of each other's music.

-[Trolls arguing] -TROLL: I want it!

-I want to listen to techno! -No fair!

Hey, y'all, I want country.

KING PEPPY: They fought over what kind of music the strings would play.

The elders realized there was but one solution.

TROLLS: Blah, blah-blah-blah-blah. Agreed.

KING PEPPY: Each tribe would take a string

-and go their separate ways. -[Trolls chattering]

Those six tribes have lived in isolation ever since.

Techno, Country, Rock, Classical, Funk, and us, the Pop Trolls.

Now Barb's announcement makes sense.

She wants to reunite the strings so the Troll World can be one big party again.

Wait, that's all you heard?

-One big party? -[chuckles]: Yeah!

It's when all the Trolls lived in harmony.

And what's more important than living in harmony?

Well, I heard fighting.

The strings together leads to fighting.

KING PEPPY: Exactly, Branch.

That's why we need to keep our string safe.

Behold!

The pop music string.

FEMALE STRING VOICE: ♪ Oh, yeah.

-[Trolls gasping] -[magic jingling]

It's beautiful.

KING PEPPY: And powerful.

Which is why we can't let it fall into the wrong hands.

And we won't. Not on my watch.

What we need is a plan.

Don't worry.

I've been preparing for this day for years.

-We run. -Run?

And hide.

On it.

But we don't even know what we're running and hiding from.

We're hiding from Barb and all the other different Trolls.

POPPY: You're assuming the worst about someone you haven't even met.

-You're not listening to me. -You're not listening to me.

-I'm your father! -And I'm the queen.

Uh, father trumps queen.

Now, there's no time to debate this. Let's go.

Come along, Branch.

Well, I, um...

We're all Trolls.

Differences don't matter.

[growling]

Oh, look how cute you are!

Barb is gonna love your new look.

Tell her I look forward to helping her plan the world's biggest party.

-Poppy. -[screams]

-What are you doing? -Oh. Nothing.

SHEILA B: Ooh!

Poppy's busted.

[shushing]

BRANCH: Sneaking out to meet Barb?

Headed into enemy territory?

She's not the enemy.

She's a queen, the same as me.

-[growling] -[grunting]

Bye-bye, little bat.

Your dad just told us that Queen Barb is bad news.

Well, my dad doesn't know everything.

He knows more about this.

You didn't even know there was a string until this morning.

He may be fine in a world where everybody lives in isolation, -but I'm not. -Well, but we don't know anything about the other Trolls.

Well, we know they're Trolls.

Branch, look around Troll Village.

Everybody's different, even us.

[distant sneeze]

Oh.

Did you hear something?

Stop trying to change the subject.

Look, being queen means having a lot of power, and it's my job to use it for good.

I can't stay home when I know there's a world full of different Trolls out there just like us.

[sighs] This is a terrible idea that will most likely blow up in your face.

-Okay, bye. -What?

[groans]

[grunts]

And I guess I'm coming with you.

[sobs]: Oh! Thank you.

I really didn't want to go by myself.

-Road trip! -Yeah!

They areall different.

[gasps softly] A-And this one looks a little bit like me.

[gasps]

We even have the same hat!

[echoing]: ...same hat, same hat, same hat!

Goodbye.

I hope I see you again, friends.

But even though it's scary, I have to go out there and see if there's other Trolls like me.

[shrieks]

Oh, man, this is gonna be hard.

Dad? Where's Dad?

There you are, Dad.

-I got the Techno string. -Cool.

-What's a string ag-again? -[back-up alarm beeping]

What? Uh...

-Don't you remember the plan? -Plan?

-I don't remember... [mumbles] -Oh.

-Great idea, man. -Whoa.

Okay, guys, line up.

We're gonna go over the plan again.

[Trolls murmur, chuckle]

Okay. We're on a World Tour.

And on each stop, we get a new string.

When I have all six strings, I'll play the ultimate power chord.

[electric guitar chord plays]

And I will unite the Trolls under one music.

Our music!

-TROLLS: Rock! -[excited chatter]

Oh, here it comes.

[grunting slowly]

Uh, just a little bit more.

Riff, just help him, man.

Yes, Your Rockness.

Aw.

There it is.

-[Trolls cheering] -BARB: Yeah!

-Rock and roll! -Yeah!

[both laugh]

Yeah!

[inhales deeply]

-[sighs] -All right.

[sleepy murmur]

[snoring]

[Mr. Dinkles sucking, cooing]

Biggie?

Oh, hello.

Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

You know how I am around cotton candy.

-[burps] -Oh, dear.

Now look what's happened.

Mr. Dinkles got all gummed up.

-[squeaks] -[gasps] Mr. Dinkles!

Mr. Dinkles!

Oh, there you are. I thought you were--

Oh. Right, then. We'll just be on our way--

[screams] Hey!

Poppy, wh-where are you balloon-flying us to?

We're on a mission to help Barb unite the Trolls, and I'm so glad you're coming with us.

I did what in the who now?

Hey, man, join the club.

And I hope you didn't eat all the cotton candy, because Barb is gonna love it.

[clears throat] Branchifer?

[clears throat] Y-Yes, Poppifer?

-What is this? -Oh, it's nothing, nothing.

-That-that-that-that's just my man stuff. -[gasps]

I love man stuff!

Weapons?

Ugh. For shame.

Well, I-I...

Violence never solves a problem, Branch.

-[squeaks] -[shrieks]

I'm not saying we have to use them.

I'm just saying it's better to be prepared in case we need them.

We won't need them unless these pointy sticks help you listen or these rocks help you put yourself in someone else's shoes.

And what about these? Is this-- What, I--

Is this some kind of jewelry?

Oh, it's actually kind of cool-looking.

♪ Oh.

Gi-Give me that.

We don't even know what's out there.

Wait! No-- Oh, man.

By the way, I whittled those for hours.

Branch, the only weapons we need are this guy and this guy, for hugs!

Uh, you may want to take a look at this.

[fire crackling softly]

This is gonna take a lot of hugs.

Whoa.

Something gnarly happened here.

PENNYWHISTLE: Hello?

Who said that?

Identify yourself!

PENNYWHISTLE: Uh, are you nice or are you mean?

W-We're nice. We're really nice.

Yeah, but not too nice.

So don't even try it.

Okay.

[softly]: Oh. Hi.

What is this place?

It used to be called Symphonyville.

[coughs]

Where the Classical Music Trolls lived.

But that was in the before.

What happened here?

Well, it was the most wonderful place you ever did seen.

[lively classical music playing, chatter, laughter]

It was a place where all of the Classical Music Trolls could live in perfect harmony.

[classical music continues]

[laughs]: Ooh.

Wherever the conductor led, we followed.

Play, play. [vocalizes] Beautiful.

-[laughs] -But then Queen Barb showed up.

Oh, no.

'Sup, Trollzart dude?

I'm here for your string.

We will not go quietly.

[playing Beethoven's "Symphony No. 5 in C Minor"]

-[triangle dings] -[Barb snores]

[sighs]: Mi, mi, mi, mi, mi.

Oh. Oh, I'm sorry, I-I must have fallen asleep, because your music is so boring.

[scoffs]

Where are the words, bro? Right?

Now give me your string.

[amplifier buzzes, hums]

[playing Beethoven's "Symphony No. 5 in C Minor"]

-Oh! Oh! -[Trolls gasping]

[sighs] No.

PENNYWHISTLE: She took our string.

Our-our music.

She took everyone.

[wind whistling softly]

We lost everything.

Barb doesn't want to unite us.

She wants to destroy us.

We need to make sure our own string is safe.

Uh, our string is safe.

What?!

Poppy, are-are you crazy?

I thought it was a good idea at the time.

I-I can't believe another queen would use her power for evil.

Okay. Change of plans.

We need to get home as fast as we can and get everyone in the bunker.

Uh, no. Change of plans.

We have to stop Barb from destroying all music.

If we don't stop her, who will?

Poppy, you said this could be handled with hugs.

How are we gonna hug our way out of this one?

-It's okay, Biggie. -Really?

It's okay to be terrified?

When am I gonna learn to stay away from the cotton candy?!

No.

As your queen, I promise that I will protect you, no matter what.

I... pinky promise.

[gasps]

Poppy, you know you can't go back on a pinky promise.

Never did, never will.

-[electricity crackles] -[magic jingling]

[wind whooshing]

[laughs]

Farewell!

A pinky promise.

Dang.

Let it be so.

And so it is.

[groans]

This just got real.

POPPY: We have to get to the Country Music Trolls in Lonesome Flats before Barb does.

Will you come with us?

Oh, no.

Someone has to rebuild.

And Pennywhistle is that woodwind for the job.

[grunts]

Good luck, little Pennywhistle.

Goodbye, Poppy.

[sighs]

[whooping, excited shouting]

[growling]

Wait. Is that...

-Debbie? -Oh, what?

-Oh, that's a lot of glitter. -BARB: No!

What did they do to you, my hairy little baby?!

Come here, come here, come here.

-Gnarly. -What-what-what do you...

-What is this? -What, what...

Pop Trolls?

[clears throat]

"Dear Barb, can't wait to meet you.

I have tons of great party ideas."

I like that.

"Maybe you and I can even be best friends."

Best friends?

Is she making fun of me?

No one says that.

Friendship takes time and years of mutual care and respect.

You don't just become best friends.

Plus, everyone knows I already have a ton of friends.

Like Carol.

Right, Carol?

Okay, you're busy. That's fine.

Love you, Carol.

-Oh, okay. -Sounds like a pretty good deal.

Yes, but which ones?

-That was a crime against music. -POPPY: Wait, no.

We're here to warn you about Barb, the Queen of Rock.

[sighs] Sweetie, I already know and have heard about this Queen Barb and her fancy World Tour.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I got to go wash what you call music out of my ears.

[gasps]

[chuckles]: Oh.

You in real trouble now.

Right, Aunt Delta?

-Keep an eye on 'em, Growly Pete. -Yes!

Growly, growly, growly, growl.

No, no. Music should bring us together, not divide us!

-Sugar. -[sighs]

Well, I knew it.

"Who Let the Dogs Out." Too far.

Okay, Branch.

You can say "I told you so." I know you want to.

Y-You did great out there, Poppy.

[Poppy shrieks]

I'll never survive the big house.

-We've got to get out of here. -I know.

That was such a rad medley. I can't believe it didn't work.

Tell me about it. I did the splits.

No one even clapped.

Am I not cute anymore?!

Come on!

Maybe my dad was right.

The other Trolls are different in ways I was not prepared for.

Some Trolls, they don't just want to have fun.

Anybody got a plan B?

Plan B? Right up here.

Step one: escape from Lonesome Flats.

[snorting, spitting noisily]

[sighs] Plan B it is.

I guess we're going home.

HICKORY: Whoo-hey!

[screams]

It ain't right to put you in jail

'cause your music's different.

It seems some folks round here don't appreciate a rad medley when they hear one.

[bell dings]

Let's skedaddle.

Yes! Mission back on!

Branch! Branch! You can stop rescuing us.

[gasps]

Poppy, you don't even know who this is.

I'm Queen Poppy. What's your name?

Name's Hickory.

Branch, this is Hickory. Hickory, this is Branch.

Enough with the formalities. Let's go!

-Uh, this is Mr. Dinkles, by the way. -[squeaks]

-We should be all right. -Thank you.

I don't know how we can ever repay you.

Oh, wait! Yes, I do.

Gum what?

Oh. Well, thank you.

Whew. That's got a zing, don't it?

-Why are you helping us? -[bell dings]

What's in it for you?

Hey! Branch.

[chuckles] I'm sorry about my... associate.

HICKORY: I loved your message about music bringing Trolls together.

You may be Pop, and I may be Country, but Trolls is Trolls.

[imitates Hickory]: "Trolls is Trolls."

Wow. Deep.

This is the beginning of a partnership between Trolls that's going to save all Trolls.

You're darn skippy.

-[chuckles]: Ah. -[groans]

Okay. We need to get to the Funk Trolls before Barb.

HICKORY: Well, quickest way is down that river.

I'll build us a raft.

[scoffs] This ought to be good.

Guy probably doesn't know the first thing about building a ra...

Cappuccino, anyone?

Cappuccino?

Cappucci-yes.

-Oh! -Are you seeing this?

-We also do drip. -BIGGIE: Oh.

It is a nice night, isn't it?

Mr. Dinkles loves a full moon.

-Let's get our grub on. -[sighs]

Food's ready.

[Southern accent]: Well, I'll bring more kindlin'.

Poppy, maybe it's just me, but are you getting a weird vibe from Hickory?

[normal voice]: What?

No. Why? Are you?

I just-- I don't know.

-I don't trust him. -BIGGIE: Oh, that's good.

POPPY: Well, yeah, but you don't

-trust anybody, Branch. -[grub squeaking]

Hey, I just want us to be safe.

And you know what's not safe?

Putting too much trust into a complete stranger.

Oh, I see.

It's not Hickory you don't trust. It's me.

Do you not think I'm a good queen?

Wait, what? I didn't say that.

I thought we were friends, Branch.

I'm starting to think you don't even know what that means.

We arefriends.

And sometimes that means speaking up if I think you're making a mistake.

-[smooth jazz music playing] -Do you hear something?

[chuckles] Look at that guy's chest hair.

BRANCH: Poppy, how'd you like the sushi?

-[groaning] -Oh.

-CHAZ: Got you, Pop babies. -[gasps]

Soon, Barb is gonna have your string, and the world will be rid of cheesy, pointless pop music, once and for all.

Hold it right there, Chaz.

And who are you supposed to be, cowboy pants?

-[Trolls gasp] -My name's Hickory, and I don't much care for smooth jazz.

-[Trolls gasp] -Oh, yeah?

Well, you've just never had the Chaz experience.

-[music stops] -Ooh. Ah.

Soundproof and delicious.

Smooth jazz will be heard again!

Smooth jazz will never die!

[blows note]

Who was that guy?

One of the many bounty hunters out there looking for you.

That was awful.

So smooth and easy and awful.

I know, big buddy.

It's enough to put you off jazz altogether.

BIGGIE: All right, that's it! We need to go home.

Biggie, it'll be okay.

Stop saying that, and listen to me.

You only hear what you want to hear, and it puts us all in danger.

How are you supposed to save the world if you can't even keep us safe?

You made a pinky promise to me, Queen Poppy.

And you broke it.

[blabbering rapidly]

What kind of queen breaks a pinky promise?!

Biggie.

No.

[sizzling]

I'm almost there. I'm so lost.

I'm Prince D. What's poppin'?

[both laughing]

I got a twin brother.

How is this possible?

Well, it's a very complicated story.

When we were both babies, my egg got snatched out of the nest.

Mom and Dad looked everywhere, but they couldn't find me, -so you guys raised me as one of your own.-TROLLS: Aw.

Now dig this. [laughs]

COOPER: And then when I went out to go find other Trolls like me, my mom and dad finally found me.

QUEEN ESSENCE: Q, is that him?

I think our search is finally over.

Our son is finally home.

[gasps]

I guess it wasn't too complicated.

-[both laugh] -Oh.

Poppy, I want you to meet the King and Queen of Funk.

King Quincy and Queen Essence.

My mom and dad.

Aw.

Wow, Cooper. You look just like your dad.

Yeah, that must be why he's so good-looking.

Was that a dad joke?

It was lame!

-[laughter] -Well, so that means you're a Funk Troll?

You don't have to be just one thing.

I'm Pop and Funk.

-Or maybe you're Hip-Hop, like me. -Yeah.

Hip-Hop?

PRINCE D: Yeah. I think your map

-is a bit outdated. -Hmm.

Oh, he's right. Look at that. It still has Disco.

POPPY: Well, Your Majesties, we need your help to save all music from Queen Barb.

If we combine our music, she'll see that music unites all Trolls and that we're all the same and that she's one of us!

Poppy, I mean no disrespect, but king to queen, anything but that.

Why not?

[electrical click, hum]

Let's tell 'em how it was, Prince D.

Sick.

Long ago, our world was without song or dance.

Then the Trolls found the strings, and life was one big party.

Oh, yeah. I-I've heard this story before.

That is, until the Pop Trolls tried to steal our strings.

Steal your strings?

That-That's not what it said in our scrapbooks.

Scrapbooks?

Those are cut out, glued and glittered by the winners.

KING QUINCY: And the Trolls never lived in harmony again.

So the Trolls live in isolation because of what Pop did?

Pop tried to destroy our music.

Just like Barb is trying to do.

I can make it right.

History's just gonna keep repeating itself until we make everyone realize that we're all the same.

But we're not all the same.

It's why all our strings are different.

Because they reflect our different music.

Denying our differences is denying the truth of who we are.

I hadn't thought of it like that.

It's time to get back home.

I'm not like you. I can't just give up.

Give up?

I want to protect our friends and family.

I can't go home until I've proven myself as a good queen.

So that's what this is really all about?

Why are you so upset?

Because your dad was right and Biggie was right and Queen Essence was right.

And I've been backing you up even when you ignore them.

But you never listen to me.

Branch, what are you talking about?

You want to be a good queen?

Good queens actually listen.

You know what I heard back there?

Differences do matter.

Like-like you and me.

We're too different to get along.

Just like all the other Trolls.

-We arereally different. -So different.

-Completely out of harmony. -Completely.

I don't even know why we're friends.

Neither do I.

-[grunts] -[Barb and Trolls laugh]

I am not your best friend.

You don't have to be embarrassed. I get it.

Being queen can be kind of lonely.

CROWD [chanting]: Barb! Barb! Barb! Barb! Barb!

[chanting fades]

There's all this pressure to be a great queen.

And instead of real friends, you're just surrounded by people who just tell you what you want to hear.

You know, other than your terrible taste in music and clothing and general lifestyle, you and me are the same, Popsqueak.

Uh... [scoffs] No, we're not.

We're both queens who just want to unite the world.

You don't want to unite the world.

You want to destroy it!

Nuh-uh. No way.

No. I don't know who told you that.

Music has done nothing but divide us.

Now that I have the final string, I can make us all one nation of Trolls, under rock.

[guitar roars]

[magic jingling, whooshing]

[pop riff plays]

[rock riff echoes]

[laughs]

What are you gonna do?

Play the ultimate power chord, and then...

[chuckles]

You'll see!

♪ So this ain't the end

♪ I had to turn my heart away

♪ Kisses for everyone

♪ And tales, it never fails

-♪ I bet you gonna ambush me -Rock on!

Rock on!

[music and cheering stop]

-[music resumes] -[crowd cheering]

[laughs] Bam!

-[playing note rhythmically] -Hey! Look, Daddy!

I'm a rock star!

Uh, this is a little hot.

[chuckles]

[crowd cheering]

[electricity booming]

[crowd cheering, whooping]

Give it up for your former leaders.

Funk, Country, Techno, Classical...

[crowd booing]

...and worst of all, Pop.

[booing continues]

[electrical crackling, whooshing]

Who wants to see what the ultimate power chord can do?

[crowd cheering, whooping]

No. No!

[playing rock riff]

[chuckles, grunts]

[grunts]

[Sheila B whoops]

Ha! I guess a giant comprehensive manual does come in handy.

Bla-dow! Just in time!

Branch!

Well, isn't that puke.

Poppy's little boyfriend came to crash the concert.

Too late, Branch.

Wait!

Branch!

[crowd murmuring quietly]

No.

[crackling]

Branch.

Rock on!

[crowd cheering]

Oh, sick! Totally works.

Who's ready to get rippin' tattoos everywhere but our faces in case we still need office jobs?

Rah!

You're turning everyone into rock zombies?

Yep. I can't wait to party with you, Poppy.

[rock music playing]

-[grunts] -Rock and roll!

Dude.

[door creaks]

BARB: Not so fast, Popsqueak.

Hey, boy toy, it's mullet time.

[strains, growls]

[grunts]

[playing rock riff]

[grunts]

-[gasps] -[gasps]

Who wants to party?!

Without smiling.

[crowd cheering]

Finish them off.

-[gasps] -[rock riff playing]

What are you doing?

You're supposed to be a rock zombie!

Gumdrops.

Soundproof and delicious.

-[gulps] -[Trolls groaning in disgust]

[Southern accent]: She learned that from watching me.

Give me that!

I'm not gonna let you do this to anyone else!

A world where everyone looks the same and sounds the same?

That's not harmony.

RIFF: Hey, Barb?

Hi.

Maybe Queen Poppy has a point.

If we all look the same, act the same, dress the same, how will anyone know we're cool or something?

-[crowd murmuring] -TROLL: Yeah. He's got a point.

A good point.

A good queen listens.

Real harmony takes lots of voices.

[grunts]

Different voices!

[loud whooshing]

[loud musical rumbling]

[rumbling stops]

POPPY [quietly]: Oh.

[Branch grunts]

Branch!

No.

[quiet electrical jingling and whooshing]

My strings.

[panting]

What have you done?

You've destroyed music!

-[crowd gasping, murmuring] -Give it up, everybody.

Thanks to the Queen of Pop, we've all lost our music.

History repeats itself.

Pop has ruined everything.

[heartbeat thumping faintly]

[heartbeat thumping rhythmically over speakers]

-[crowd murmuring quietly] -[rhythmic heartbeat continues]

[beatboxing to rhythm]

Those are my sons.

Making music.

[heartbeat and beatboxing continue]

[clapping and tapping to rhythm]

[crowd clapping and stomping to rhythm, excited chatter]

-[music stops] -[heartbeat continues]

Queen Barb can't take away something that is inside us.

Because that's where music really comes from.

It started with the strings, but now it comes from us.

[Trolls vocalizing melodically]

Yeah, it comes from our experiences.

Our lives.

Our culture.

[melodic vocalizing continues]

Beautiful. [laughs]

Listen to that.

Barb can't take that away.

[melodic vocalizing continues]

I love you guys.

Dad, I should've listened to what you had to say and not run off like that.

I'm so glad you didn't listen to me.

You weren't naive about this world.

You were brave enough to believe things can change.

Braver than me.

I raised Poppy to be strong and self-confident.

I was a genius. [grunts]

Ha! Ha! Yeah!

[crowd cheering]

[grunting]

Well, now that you're not forcing me, I hope we can be friends.

Yes!

Did you hear that, Carol?

We have a girl group now!

A girl group? Nice!

[smooth jazz music plays, stops]

Yeah! Carol! [laughs]

She's psyched.

Branch, I love that we're different.

And I love you, Queen Poppy.

I love you, too, Branch.

Shall we?

-Yeah! [whoops] -Yes!

-Now, that's a good connection! -[laughs]

POPPY: In the beginning, we were divided.

["The Other Side" by SZA and Justin Timberlake playing]

Our ancestors thought we were just too different to get along.

It turns out they were wrong.

Very, very wrong.

ANCESTOR TROLL: We're sorry.

POPPY: You have to be able to listen to other voices, even when they don't agree with you.

-[Trolls sigh] -[hands clap]

They make us stronger, more creative, more inspired.

So whether your song is sad and heartfelt, loud and defiant, or warm and funky, or even if you're a little bit of each, it's all these sounds and all our differences that make the world a richer place.

♪ On the other side...

Because you can't harmonize alone.
