‘Trolls World Tour’ Songs and Soundtrack
Almost as big as the adventure in “Trolls World Tour” is its soundtrack. Executive produced by Justing Timberlake, the soundtrack is comprised of songs spanning multiple genres. Artists like Timberlake, Donni Wahlberg, Ozzy Osbourne, and Mark Walhberg lend their talents for the 20-song soundtrack. “Trolls World Tour” soundtrack peaked at the 110 spot on the US Billboard 200 and the 100 position on the US Rolling Stone Top 200 chart.

‘Trolls World Tour’ at the Box Office
Trolls World Tour released in theaters and for digital rental on the same day due to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. On opening day (April 10), the film took home $1.9 million. At the time of release, most movie theaters throughout the United States were closed, which hindered the film’s box office performance.
‘Trolls World Tour’ Reviews – What the Critics Said
Just as the previous movie had done in 2016, “Trolls World Tour” received average reviews. Critics felt the plot to be “trite” and that it paled in comparison to movies like “Inside Out,” which share a similar moral. Others were less accepting of the film, comparing it to “The Smurfs” while panning the soundtrack for poor covers of well-known songs. One thing most critics could agree on was that kids would love it and that it wasn’t light on references adults could appreciation.

‘Trolls World Tour’ Trivia: 5 Fast Facts
The sequel to Trolls (2016) is a larger-than-life adventure featuring a massive cast of vocalists. Behind-the-scenes, there is plenty of trivia and facts to dive into before watching Trolls World Tour.
1. Podcasting For a Role
Some people are picked by a casting director. Others work their way into a production by campaigning for a role. The McElroy Brothers, known for their “My Brother, My Brother and Me” podcast, wanted to be featured in the latest “Trolls” movie. To accomplish they created a new podcast, “The McElroy Brothers Will Be in Trolls 2.” The campaign ultimately worked as they were cast as Skyscraper and other roles throughout the movie.
2. Pulling Inspiration from Marvel
In Trolls World Tour, the musical tribes must gather together six strings of a guitar. Releasing after the success of “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Endgame,” the six strings are a clear reference to the infinity stones that Thanos needs to complete his mission.
3. A Minimal Theatrical Release
Due to the spread of the 2019 coronavirus, Trolls World Tour had an extremely limited theatrical release – even less than that of Disney’s Onward that released in March. Its release hit some Asian markets before those theaters were forced to close. Its primary box office numbers will be from digital rentals, which started on April 6, 2020 in the United Kingdom.
4. A Missing Troll
Every troll from “Trolls” returned to “Trolls World Tour,” except one. The only troll not to join the large cast was Creek, the first film’s secondary antagonist. Though he was Poppy’s love interest, his cowardice caused him to turn on his tribe and lose the trust of those around him. After his defeat, he was depicted in a mid-credits scene being eaten by a monster with the film’s primary antagonist, Chef.
5. Sam Rockwell Just Being Sam Rockwell
Sam Rockwell is known for his eccentric personality, so it would only make sense that he would start production of “Trolls World Tour” in the strangest of ways. Portraying Hickory, a yodeling troll trying to hide as a country troll, Rockwell arrived for his first day of voice recording dressed entirely in cowboy garb.
