For those of you that don’t know, some of rock’s biggest hits have been re-recorded for the upcoming animated movie: Trolls World Tour.
When we say classics we’re talking about tracks by the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Heart and the Scorpions. Ozzy’s “Crazy Train,” Heart’s “Barracuda” and the Scorpions’ “Rock You Like a Hurricane” were all voiced by Rachel Bloom, you may know her as the star and co-creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
The Trolls franchise began back in 2016, and Trolls World Tour has a serious music theme running throughout. The lead characters Poppy voiced by (Anna Kendrick) and Branch, who has the dulcet tones of (Justin Timberlake), learn that in the world of Trolls, there are six tribes, and each is devoted to a different genre of music: rock, pop, funk, country, classical and techno.
Osbourne also lends his instantly recognizable voice to the movie for the voice of Thrash, he the king of the Hard Rock Trolls, whose daughter Barb wants to destroy all other styles of music so that rock can rule. In an effort to stop Barb, Poppy and Branch join forces with the Trolls from the other genres in order to defeat her.
As well as Ozzy, the movie also features the voices of Funkadelic’s \George Clinton who is the voice for, of course, the King of the Funk Trolls, as well as the voices of Kelly Clarkson and Sam Rockwell.
