A gaggle of famous British faces from a variety of sources will be lending their voices to DreamWorks Animation’s forthcoming adventure Trolls. The film will be screening at the 60th BFI London Film Festival ahead of its theatrical release on Friday, October 21.
Here’s the full press release:
Joining Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake in this year’s highly anticipated DreamWorks’ Animation are a host of British names, lending their five voices to five singing, dancing (and overly optimistic!) Trolls. This talented group of people join the already stellar cast that also includes Zooey Deschanel, Christopher Mintz–Plasse, Christine Baranski, Russell Brand, James Corden, Jeffrey Tambor, Ron Funches, Caroline Hjelt, Aino Jawo, Kunal Nayyar, Quvenzhané Wallis, with John Cleese and Gwen Stefani.
Good Morning Britain’s Susanna Reid plays Grandma Rosiepuff, the Grandmother of Branch, played by Justin Timberlake “Never thought I’d be playing Justin Timberlake’s Grandma Rosiepuff- what a giggle. Recording my lines was a lot of fun and I’m very excited to have played a part in the movie.”
BBC Radio 1’s Greg James takes on the character of avid skateboarder Aspen Heitz “Delighted to be making my DreamWorks’ debut alongside Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick in Trolls. I only have one line… But WHAT a line it is.”
The role of Mandy Sparkledust will be played by model and mother Abbey Clancy “So excited to be involved in DreamWorks’ upcoming film Trolls alongside such a wonderful cast. It was so much fun to be part of. My little girls can’t wait to watch and see if they can spot mummy’s voice.”
YouTube sensations Connie Glynn (@noodlerella) and Carrie Hope Fletcher (@CarrieHFletcher) round out the UK voice cast playing fun loving Trolls Moxie Dewdrop and Cookie. Connie Glynn said, “I had such a fun time voicing the character Moxie, I can’t wait for everyone to see her in action!”
Actress and author Carrie Hope Fletcher said “I was thrilled to be asked to voice the role of Cookie, it’s such an honour to be part of such an incredible cast”.
