Do you remember the multi-coloured, big haired, rubber mini dolls, that for some reason smelled o so good? Yes, one of the most popular toys of the 90s, Trolls, are being turned into a big-screen animated movie, which Anna Kendrick is set to star in. 

The 28-year-old Pitch Perfect actress is preparing to showcase her vocal skills once again as she takes on the role of Poppy, an upbeat princess in the DreamWorks Animation's film.

The musical comedy will star the colourful hair dolls that became a popular toy among collectors in the 1960s and again in the 1990s.

Director Mike Mitchell praised Kendrick’s vocal abilities in a press release announcing the casting: “Anna has proven herself to be a brilliant actress with an amazing singing voice.

“She’ll inject Poppy with the exact mix of spirit, sass and song that will no doubt give a whole new life to the iconic Troll dolls.”

Trolls is slated for released in November 2016.
