Justin Timberlake Set to Serve as Executive Music Producer for Trolls

Justin Timberlake is set to serve as executive producer for the music for upcoming DreamWorks Animation comedy, Trolls!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the singer/songwriter will write and perform original songs for the movie, as well as oversee creative direction for the film's music. In addition, he will also voice one of the characters, named Branch, who is described as an "hilariously hardcore survivalist who hides his surprising true colors."

“I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event [and] couldn’t be more excited that they will collide in DreamWorks’ Trolls," Justin said. "This film is very special, the music is going to be very special and I can’t wait for everyone to experience it all.”

“Justin is an amazingly versatile artist and producer whose unprecedented creative talents provide a unique voice and sound for our movie,” said DreamWorks Animation’s co-presidents of feature animation Bonnie Arnold and Mireille Soria in a statement. “Trolls is a comedy with fantastic music at its core and we can’t think of a more perfect artist to elevate this soundtrack to incredible heights.”

Directed by Mike Mitchell and co-directed by Walt Dohrn, the comedy also stars Anna Kendrick as Princess Poppy, who heads off on a great adventure with Branch. Fox has set the film for release on Nov. 4, 2016.

This is definitely a great move for JT, who is a talented musician and actor. I can't wait to see what he brings to the table (yes, I'm a big kid so I'll be watching!)
