It looks like the 3rd part of “Trolls” will be a true story told from the experience of one of the creators.
Yesterday the first official trailer for the animated film, which is well-known primarily to younger audiences, “Trolls 3,” has already come out. As the name suggests, this will be the third installment of the animation, and is to be called “Trolls Band Together.”
The animation starring Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick is scheduled to hit theaters this November. Interestingly, the creators recently revealed in an interview that the story will be based on the real-life experiences of one of the co-creators.
“Trolls 3” based on a true story
As the first official trailer for “Trolls 3” hit the web yesterday, things got a lot louder about the animation. On this occasion, Dexerto published a special interview with the filmmakers Walt Dohrn and Gina Sha, in which they revealed that the story of the third part of the film will be based on the real experience of one of them.
Dohrn: We wanted to tell a family tree story since Trolls 1. Plus it’s [Shay’s] story.
Shay: I have some long-lost siblings. A lot of people I think are finding this out with all the new DNA surprises.
Dohrn: We really pull from a lot of our own personal experiences. You know, the Trolls movies are so wild and psychedelic and fantastic and this kaleidoscopic world, full of color and fun, but really underneath it all are really personal things we’re dealing with our own siblings and our own families. Especially coming out of the pandemic, we were developing this during those beginning times, we were all with our families quite a lot, or separated from them, so a lot of that story comes out of that.
Shay: And just experiencing family dynamics, and how there’s a lot of dynamic that siblings have when they’re younger in the family and when they get older sometimes they can’t let go of some of the things of the past, and this is kind of about that. This is about acceptance, and accepting who you now are as a person, and having agency in that sibling relationship as well. And respect, respecting your siblings maybe more than maybe you did before.
Dohrn: John Dory, that’s Branch’s oldest brother, he has a lot of attributes my own big brother did. A little bit of that dynamic we’re pulling from there.
