Trolls (2016) Find your happy place

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……

This is a twist on a classic, but also a kind of sequel to Frank L. Baum tales of Oz. To all those kids growing up during the 60s and 70s, you most likely felt pretty special when you got to see the annual viewing of the 1937 classic, The Wizard of Oz, when it aired on CBS. There was even an alternate version featuring an all-African-American cast, including a teen Micheal……
