"Continuing its theatrical run, DreamWorks Animation’s all-new fun-filled installment of the popular family franchise that celebrates the power of unity, family, friendship and music, TROLLS BAND TOGETHER, is now available to own on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Join Poppy and Branch on their latest adventure as they embark on an epic journey that leads to Branch’s reunion with his BroZone brothers and Poppy’s long-lost sister, Viva.


Showcasing an irresistible soundtrack of beloved classics and original songs including *NSYNC’s all-new single “Better Place,” TROLLS BAND TOGETHER is directed by Walt Dohrn (Trolls franchise, Shrek franchise), co-directed by Tim Heitz (Trolls, How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World) and produced by Gina Shay (Trolls franchise, Shrek franchise), and features a star-studded cast of incredible actors, musical superstars, and comedic powerhouses.

My Thoughts:

When there were first rumbles of N*Sync reuniting, I, like so many others fans of this 90's boy band, couldn't wait to hear their first song drop.  Then, we found out they would be reuniting in the newest Trolls movie, Trolls Band Together.  We all started to count down the days until this animated movie arrived in theaters. It was girls weren't fans of N*Sync, but also couldn't wait to see the movie, as they love Branch and Poppy, and always like the fun and unique story lines that Dreamworks Animation and Universal Studios comes up with.  They had no idea why I was so excited to see this movie with them. And, then once we saw the movie, they were instant N*Sync fans, and came home and started to listen to all their old hits.  We ended up seeing this movie twice in theaters, and then said we would get it on video once it was released to watch it again...and again.  

Now the wait is over, as Trolls Band Together, is now available to own on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital, and even comes in a fun sing along edition, which we were recently sent to review. This sing-along edition contains the complete movie that you will have fun singing along with all 14 catchy songs, as well as great bonus content including deleted scenes, an exclusive original short: It Takes Three, a How To: Hug Time Bracelets, Hi, Hi, Hi and so much more.  As soon as we watched the movie again the other day when we received this special sing-along edition, we sat and watch all the amazing bonus content.  

This is really a cute movie, and with the edition of the boy band, N*Synch reuniting with a new song after so many years, I think this will go down as one of my favorite animated movies from Dreamworks.  Usually I am not a fan of sequels, but each and every time they come out with a new Trolls movie I say it will not be as good as the last one...but, then it is! And, now I can't wait to see if they come out with more Trolls movie, and outdo themselves yet again.  But, in the meantime, I love that I get to enjoy this fun animated Trolls with my girls, as we belt out the songs at the top of our lungs, and have so much enjoying a great movie and quality family time together.  If you are looking for a fun family movie to enjoy with your family and haven't had a chance to see this movie, I highly recommend you check it out. And, if you have already seen it in theaters, I know you probably already picked it up when it released to Blu-ray and DVD the other day, to watch again with your family.
