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?
