New 'Trolls Holiday' Special Airs on NBC This Week: All the Details

Trolls fans are in for quite the post-Thanksgiving treat! NBC will be airing a special DreamWorks' Trolls Holiday special on Friday, November 24 at 8:30 p.m. EST/7:30 p.m. CST -- and yep, the entire beloved cast will be reprising their roles! You can look forward to hearing Anna Kendrick as Poppy, Justin Timberlake as Branch, Zooey Deschanel as Bridget, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as King Gristle Jr., James Corden as Biggie, Ron Funches as Cooper, Icona Pop's Caroline Hjelt as Chenille and Aino Jawo as Satin, Kunal Nayyar as Guy Diamond, Walt Dohrn as Cloud Guy, Smidge, and Fuzzbert, and Kevin Michael Richardson as the narrator.

Here's the scoop on the plot, according to an NBC press release: "Now that the Bergens' one holiday is gone - and the Trolls don't have to worry about being eaten by their neighbors - Poppy, the eternally optimistic Troll queen, has made it her mission to bring a brand new day of celebration to Bergen Town. When Poppy recruits reluctant Branch and the rest of the colorful Snack Pack to join her quest, she'll try to prove to her best Bergen friends, Bridget and King Gristle Jr., that life would be better if they'd just adopt a new holiday. But just because Poppy won't rest until the village embraces Ticklepalooza or Balloon Squeal Day doesn't mean the Bergens are ready to launch a celebration as loud, crazy and glittery as the little Troll suggesting it."

And of course the made-for-TV flick has its own soundtrack, because no Trolls movie would be complete without its very own collection of upbeat, earworm tunes -- including a colorful cover of Madonna's "Holiday" featuring Anna and JT. So fun. 

If you can't wait 'til Friday to get yourTrolls fix, you can enjoy this preview clip in the meantime.

The LOs are sure to love this sweet new way to ring in the season!
