“DreamWorks Trolls: The Beat Goes On!” – Jan. 19, 2018
Picking up where the film left off, the Netflix original series is an all-new chapter in the endlessly upbeat adventures of the Trolls as Poppy, Branch and all of Troll Village keep the party going in their fantastical forest home. Executive produced by Matthew Beans, the series features Skylar Astin and Amanda Leighton as the voices of Branch and Poppy with original songs written and produced by Alana Da Fonseca.
From Eisner Award-winning author and executive producer Noelle Stevenson comes a modern take on the ’80s girl power icon for a new generation of young fans. The trailblazing property originally debuted in 1985 to satisfy overwhelming demand for a female lead fantasy series. With Stevenson’s unique voice at the helm, fans are in store for an epic and timely tale that celebrates female friendship and empowerment, lead by a warrior princess tailor-made for today. The series will be available to Netflix members worldwide in 2018.
