Trolls 2 will bring back Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick together to lend their voices for Branch and Poppy. However, according to Slash Film, it remains to be seen if the former 'N Sync member will oversee the movie's musical side again.

The original movie's official soundtrack, "Can't Stop the Feeling," made by Timberlake, had been a big hit. It even caused a "last song syndrome" to many, sticking to fans' heads, and earned the 38-year-old singer a Grammy nominee. 

With the first movie's box office success, earning $346 million worldwide, the making of Trolls 2 doesn't come as a surprise. The sequel is said to continue where the first film left off. It will be all glitter and happiness in Troll Town until Poppy and Branch learn there are others of their kind, and a different genre of music defines each.

However, they will be all in danger when a mysterious threat puts them all across the land in Trolls 2. So, Poppy, Branch, and their group of friends have to go to an epic journey in an unfamiliar place. Here, they have to create harmony among different kinds of Trolls to be united as one against the enemy.

Aside from Timberlake and Kendrick, American Idol alum Kelly Clarkson will join Trolls 2 as Delta Dawn, per Deadline. She will play the role of the Country Trolls' mayor. She is also set to sing an original song for the movie.

Anthony Ramos will also join the film, along with Karan Soni, Flula Borg, Jamie Dornan, Sam Rockwell, and Chance the Rapper.

Trolls 2 will be bigger with the trolls' expanded world and new roles. Of course, fans can expect to hear new music with the addition of new characters. There will be originals songs and re-recordings of the favorite classics that will be "clearly woven" into the film's narrative as "story-telling" elements.

Trolls 2 will expand not just its world but also the music genres to represent other variety of songs like pop, country, hip-hop, hard rock, funk, K-pop, EDM, and everything in between. In less than a year, Trolls World Tour will hit the big screens on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2020.
