Everyone needs to see Trolls World Tour. You can rent it on Amazon right now and watch it as many times as you can for 48 hours! I believe that this sequel to Trolls is 100% better than the first movie.

It turns out that the trolls we met last time are only one of six regional types of trolls. The original movie’s trolls are actually called Pop Trolls. There are also Techno, Funk, Classical, Country and Hard Rock Trolls! Each region also has a magical musical string that represents the music of its trolls.

Barb (the Queen of Hard Rock) decides that she will go on a world tour to all of the other regions. Her plan is to steal each place’s string, which will allow her to transform all of the other trolls into Hard Rock Zombie Trolls! Queen Poppy of the Pop Trolls, traveling with Branch and Biggie, at first plans to become friends with Barb. However, once Queen Poppy and the others see Barb’s destruction of Symphonyville in the Classical region, they realize they will have to warn the other regions. In the Country Music region, they befriend the helpful Hickory, who travels with them. Along the way, they are pursued by bounty hunters from other musical genres like smooth jazz, K-pop, reggaeton and yodeling. The yodelers, in particular, have a secret to be revealed by the end of the movie.

I really, really like the music in this movie. My favorite song comes right at the beginning when Barb attacks the Techno Trolls during a concert. They are dancing to the song “One More Time” (originally sung by Daft Punk). I also really like the song at the end, “Just Sing (Trolls World Tour),” which blends the musical styles of all the trolls.
