There is a new breed of character invading the theaters and I’m pretty sure, the holiday Christmas lists as well, Trolls.
On October 29, 2016 YRB Magazine was treated to a sneak preview of the film courtesy of Blogxilla’s Movie party and Dreamworks in New York City.
Upon walking in the AMC theatre in the heart of Times Square, it was immediately obvious this was no ordinary screening. The two sponsors partnered with The Precious Dreams Foundation to collect, teddy Bears, pajamas, books, blankets any other helpful items to give to the foster children throughout the NYC area.
I had the pleasure of bringing my daughter and mother along to enjoy this much anticipated movie. Immediately after checking in, my daughter was given her Troll hair along with a beautiful multi – color Troll poster as well as a coloring puzzle (which is always a favorite to a six year old). Movie Time!
The moment the movie starts you are immediately aware your feet will be tapping and you will be singing along throughout the movie. With a soundtrack which features the vocals of Justin Timberlake on seven tracks as well as Anna Kendrick, Gwen Stefani and Ariana Grande contributing their vocals there is definite reason to tap your feet. Seamlessly mixing old school classics with some new originals, the movie takes viewers young and older on a mixture of feel-good emotions with these undeniably cute characters teaching the world how to be happy from within.
Looking around the theatre at all the children in their Troll hair laughing and smiling while watching the movie in 3D, reminded me of the innocence of my youth when life was about having pure fun and enjoying moments and movies like this. My daughter even leaned over during the movie and said,
“Thanks Dad, this is great!”
That one statement made the movie and the experience all worth it from me.
So I raise my root beer and popcorn to the newest animated film which will definitely be a hit with the box office, children and stores alike this holiday season. Truly a family movie where the parent and child alike will be pleased.
Trolls is in theaters everywhere November 4th.
