Trolls: World Tour: A fun though somewhat overwhelming movie that brings joy to viewers of any age

Trolls was a greatly appreciated family movie when it came out back in 2016, and IT is now back for more family enjoyment with Trolls: World Tour. This time around, Trolls looks at the journey of Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake), who have just recently discovered the six different groups of music. What Poppy thought was a way to get all the music groups together, was actually a way for Barb (the hard rock leader) to attempt to take over the world with her music. It's up to a Poppy, Branch, and the rest of the gang to save the six groups of music from getting washed away forever, but can they do it? I decided to watch Trolls after I saw the reviews, which were better than normal for a Pixar movie, and I was quite surprised at how amusing it was even for me, a teenager. The plot was actually very intriguing with a "save the world" aspect, and would definitely keep a younger viewer wondering what is going to happen next. Although the characters are funny, there is a handful that was added only for comedic effect, which ended up being pointless and not contributing to the story. That being said, they could have easily had the same level of humor without so many stock characters. Another feature I found to be particularly annoying was how overwhelming the movie was in full. The film is loud, crazy, and never calms down except for two or three scenes, which for me, made focusing much harder when there was too much to focus on. Even though the movie is filled with childish comedy and is highly overwhelming, most children won't get this sense, and will really enjoy the adventure. Trolls: World Tour has a PG rating for some tense attack situations that could be scary for very young viewers. Although the movie is appropriate, anyone 4 and up would most likely enjoy this movie. I give the movie 4 out of 5 stars for having a great storyline and an epic journey that is amusing to watch play out, but that is also very overwhelming and potentially boring if viewers don't know what's going on.
