As she and her group of nine friends, the Snack Pack, face their biggest challenge ever, Poppy is faced for the first time in her life with a problem that apparently can’t be solved with a song, a dance and a hug.

The only Troll in the village who doesn’t sing, dance or hug, Branch lives a disgruntled existence, constantly trying to prepare for the worst. He’s constantly flummoxed by the over-the-top positivity of the other Trolls — is he the only sane one in this crowd of exuberantly happy Trolls?

BRIDGET is the sweetest, most kind-hearted Bergen in all of Bergen Town. Bridget is the dishwasher and scullery maid to Chef, who is in charge of capturing and preparing the Trolls for the great Trollstice Feast. She’s sensitive and soft-spoken —a rarity amongst the Bergens. She speaks so quietly and delicately that it’s almost like there’s a little angel sleeping on her tongue. Through a song (a heartfelt rendition of “Hello” by Lionel Richie), we find out that Bridget has a secret crush on the Bergen King (Prince Gristle), but she lacks the confidence to speak out, since she is kept firmly under the thumb of her mean-spirited and overbearing boss, Chef.
However, when Bridget meets Poppy and the Snack Pack, they hatch a plan to give Bridget the confidence she needs to act like a total babe, so she can catch the eye of the King.

Now, after 20 years spent wandering the forest in exile, Chef hears something in the distance… A celebration!
