The Season Will Include Original Songs from Composer Alana De Fonseca
According to the streaming giant’s official description, the animated series will continue telling stories that take place after the popular film starring Justin Timberlake. “Picking up where the film left off, the Netflix original series is an all-new chapter in the the endlessly upbeat adventures of the Trolls as Poppy, Branch and all of Troll Village keep the party going in their fantastical forest home,” the website states.
Animation Magazine also provides some insight into some of the episode’s main plot points. “Queen Poppy decides to create a new Bergen-free Troll anthem… Guy Diamond loses his glitter, and all of Troll Village comes together to celebrate the one day it snows with an epic Snow Day,” they reveal. The season will also delve into the identity of the mysterious Mr. Glittercakes.
Romper also reports that there will be a subplot involving the character Branch and her discovery of a sack of eggs in the forest. The eggs reportedly hatch into three adorable chicks, forcing Branch into the role of parent. Like the film upon which it was based, Trolls: The Beat Goes On features original songs. This time, the songwriting duties go to Alana Da Fonseca. Da Fonseca was the executive music producer on Pitch Perfect 3, which starred Trolls voice actress Anna Kendrick.
