Universal today set an April 10, 2020, release for Trolls 2, a date they had set aside earlier as an untitled Universal event film.

A sequel for the DreamWorks' animated film Trolls will hit theaters in 2020.

The animated adventure film, which was famous for its quirky characters and feel-good soundtrack, was released in USA theaters last November 2016 and grossed over $342.8 million in sales worldwide as of March 1. As of the moment, only Kendrick and Timberlake are confirmed to reprise their part in the sequel.

The title track Can't Stop the Feeling was nominated for best original song at this year's Oscars.

In the first "Trolls" movie, Branch and Poppy had to save their village from a troll-eating monster.

There's no news whether he will still write and perform the "Trolls 2" soundtrack, but given the success of "Can't Stop the Feeling", it's highly possible. He signed on earlier this month to direct Warner Bros' The Lego Movie sequel, and that pic has a February 8, 2019, release date. The script was written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger, who also worked with the "Kung Fu Panda" films.
