DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls uses The Hit House’s enhancements to “True Colors” in the new Anna Kendrick & Justin Timberlake trailer.

In a movie about about trolls & happiness, no song fits better than Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors.” To make the song work for DreamWorks Animation’s newest Trolls trailer, The Hit House’s Scott Miller made enhancements from 1:56-2:11.

The creators of Shrek, created a smart, funny, & irreverent comedy about the universal search for happiness & the lengths the trolls will go to find it. Poppy, the perpetually optimistic troll, voiced by Anna Kendrick & Branch, the perpetually pessimistic troll, voiced by Justin Timberlake, set off on a rollicking adventure of incredible color to save their friends who have been taken by the evil Bergens. Throughout the movie music becomes the key to their survival as the soundtrack, produced by Timberlake, features five original songs by Timberlake, Ariana Grande, Anna Kendrick & Gwen Stefani, as well as classic hits from the 1960s through the 1980s.

“I feel music adds so much to animation, it just feels like they belong together,” said Anna Kendrick, as Timberlake enforced its centrality, “It’s the music that rescues them.” The trolls themselves said, “Happiness is inside of all of us, sometimes you just need someone to help you find it.” Next time you need the happy, let The Hit House help you find it.
