Dreamworks keeps coming up more and more great family movies, and although Trolls is not quite as immersive as Sing, it has its own charm and lots of colourful 1970s nostalgia mixed in. Anyone growing up in the era will understand many of the references the Trolls and their enemies, The Bergens come across along the way.
These trolls are not the kind one fights in Middle Earth, nor are they the kind that get loose in the basement at Hogwarts. These are very different. These are tiny, happy creatures based on toys created by the Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam in 1959. Now they are their own nation, and sadly, that tiny tribe lives in a park in the center of a Bergen town, only to be harvested for a festival every year know as Trollstice. On this day, Bergens get to indulge in a feast of happiness that comes from consuming Trolls. This particular Trollstice is the first one for the new Bergen Prince Gristle Jr.(Christopher Mintz-Plasse), but the prince will never learn how to be happy, because this is also the night that Troll King Peppy (Jeffrey Tambor) gets everyone out of the captive park, and to a new home far in the forest. They live peacefully for twenty years, and soon the Troll princess, Poppy (Anna Kendrick) is learning how to be a royal for the time when she takes the throne.

As if it is possible for Disney movies to get any better, they keep do! Zootopia is one of those kinds of movies that you can keep watching over and over again and never get tired of, which is pretty much the standard with many Disney movies. This story takes place in a very modern city, but it is the “tail” of Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), a cute little bunny from Bunnyburrow, one child of over two hundred children of Bonnie (Bonnie Hunt) and Stu (Don Lake) Hopps, that want to be a police officer in the city of Zootopia. The country folk of Bunnyburrow think she will fail, and should be a carrot farmer like her parents, but she is determined to prove them all wrong. A while later, she is off to the police academy, training in all kinds of climates and terrain. All the other recruits are large predators or bigger herbivores like rhinos or hippos, but Judy uses her bunny gifts and dexterity to rise above her problems and soon graduates at the head of the class.

Back when Bram Stoker and Mary Shelley created these classic gothic monsters to scare us with throughout the ages, they most likely never dreamed we’d love them so much 150 plus years in the future and beyond. Apparently, neither did any of the monsters, because that is why Count Dracula (Adam Sandler) had the Hotel Transylvania built, but that was not the main reason. As humans, and to quote the Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast, “We don’t like what we don’t understand…” and such was the way we were with monsters during the 19th century, especially in Eastern Europe, which was about the time Dracula and his lovely wife had a sweet little vampire child, Mavis.
