Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake, in both real and animated form, do their duty in this trailer for Trolls, Dreamworks’ upcoming CG musical that is “a story about happiness” that also manages to work in a treacly cover of “True Colors.” Who knew the wild-haired plastic toys that inspired this tale could be so emo?

At least this latest trailer is completely devoid of any Troll twerking, as seen in the below.

Trolls is out November 4; Timberlake completists, people with small children in their orbits, and masochists certainly have their work cut out for them.

It is unlikely that I will ever see this movie, because it’s not directed at me in any way and I don’t have kids or grandkids to look after. Obviously it was not written or produced for the discerning tastes of io9 readers.

Although, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks”

True Colors is a treacly song - that’s part of its charm. Sounded to me like Timberlake was doing OK with it.

And then, at the end, Sounds of Silence started out pretty good before cutting off.

Can’t we all just get along?
