Anna Kendrick for Trollsfox

DreamWorks Animation’s fall-hit “Trolls” got a home box-office release this week. The animated comedy earned an “A” CinemaScore and a Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Fans can relive the music-filled adventure on Digital HD starting on January 24th and get the Blu-ray and DVD version on February 7th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

The story involves Troll Village, filled with optimistic Trolls, who are always ready to sing, dance and party. When the comically pessimistic Bergens invade, Poppy (Anna Kendrick), the happiest Troll ever born, and the overly-cautious, curmudgeonly Branch (Justin Timberlake) set off on an epic journey to rescue her friends. Their mission is full of adventure and mishaps, as this mismatched duo try to tolerate each other long enough to get the job done.

The film went on to make $151.28M domestically, a great start considering it opened against “Doctor Strange” and “Hacksaw Ridge”. The film then made over $185.46M in foreign markets.

From Shrek franchise veterans Mike Mitchell (Shrek Forever After) and Walt Dohrn (Shrek 2, Shrek the Third), the film features the voice talents of Golden Globe nominee Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, The Accountant), Grammy and Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe Award nominee Justin Timberlake (Friends with Benefits, Shrek the Third), Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee Zooey Deschanel (“New Girl”), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad, How to Train Your Dragon), Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Christine Baranski (“The Good Wife,” How the Grinch Stole Christmas), Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Grammy Award nominee Gwen Stefani (“The Voice”), Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee John Cleese (Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After), Emmy Award winner James Corden (“The Late Late Show with James Corden”, Into the Woods), Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent, “Arrested Development”) and Ron Funches (“Undateable,” Get Hard).

The home-release will include the “Trolls Party Edition” on Blu-ray February 7, 2017 and Digital HD January 24. Fans can pre-order the film through authorised retailers like Amazon.com.
