With Guaranteed Pep Overload, Anna Kendrick Will Play a Singing and Dancing Troll Doll

By Vivian Kane | Trade News | June 17, 2014 | Comments ()


Anna Kendrick is basically a living, breathing, singing, dancing porcelain doll. She already comes in miniature, and is so adorable that even when she’s at her surliest, it still looks like someone put eyeliner on a kitten.


So Kendrick’s career trajectory as of late has made a lot of sense. First she went musical.

Then she went Princess musical.

Next up: animated musical troll doll.


Yes, Dreamworks is planning an animated musical based on those naked big-haired troll dolls, slated for November 2016. She’ll be playing Poppy, who according to director Mike Mitchell, is a mix of “spirit, sass and song.” Mitchell directed Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, Shrek Forever After, and Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo. Just so we’re all aware of what this thing is going to be.

Are we having fun yet?

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

    Am I the only one who hates it when female characters are referred to as "sassy" or "spirited?"

  • NateMan

    Not even a little.

  • BlackRabbit

    I was going to add "spunky" but that might lead us down a path from which we should ne'er emerge.

  • Jericho Smith

    Good call.

    Although I do have a bag full of breadcrumbs...

  • Jericho Smith

    Didn't she say, after the musical SNL, that she didn't want to do any more musicals?

  • I love you, Anna, but this sounds dumb.
    In other happier news, I can finally see Disqus at work. Hallelujah, praise Godtopus!

  • NateMan

    There are so many great Dreamworks animated movies. Why the fuck couldn't she be in one of those?!

  • Fabius_Maximus
  • Blake Shrapnel

    This movie is going to blow chunks. Like, all over the place.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Does this mean that if I want to see Kendrick in this movie I have to pay the troll toll?

  • zeke_the_pig

    That's only for boys' holes, dude.

  • Coolg82

    If you want to get into Kendrick's hole, yes.

  • Coolg82

    Sorry bout that, I was chewing some gum, I meant "soul".
