Trolls Would Tour Quotes

Who wants to get tattoos everywhere except our faces in case we need to get office jobs!
Branch
You have to be able to listen to other voices, even when they don’t agree with you. They make us stronger, more creative, more inspired. So whether your song is sad and heartfelt, loud and defiant, or warm and funky, or even if you’re a little bit of each, it’s all these sounds and all our differences that make our world a richer place. Because you can’t harmonize alone.
Poppy

Trolls World Tour Plot Summary (Spoilers)

In the sequel to The wildly successful 2016 movie Trolls, Trolls World Tour is truly a celebration of all things trolls, and as the narrator recaps the first film, he also explains the troll’s world is going to get a lot bigger.

The techno trolls are having fun at a rave when the Hard Rock troll Queen Barb rocks out with their weaponized guitars to destroy the stage and demand Trollex hand over his guitar string to her. The electro trolls have no choice and hand over the guitar string to her that holds the power of techno music.

Later, Poppy is contacted by Barb with an invitation to unite all Troll music. Poppy talks to her father and learns that a wide variety of trolls are scattered across their lands. There were once six magical lyre strings that represented each of the tribes.

There are rock trolls, country trolls, techno trolls, classical trolls, pop trolls, and funk trolls, all of whom worship different styles of music. Each of them has a magical string which is the property of the tribe’s leader.

They all used to live together in harmony, but disagreement and discord led them to break up. Barb and Poppy decide that Trolls should be united with all forms of music despite her father’s warnings to trust Barb.

Barb is busy boasting about snatching the techno string, and she reveals a plan to create a super guitar made with each string from the different tribes of trolls.

Poppy tries to prove herself to be the best. She takes an air balloon to recruit a team. Branch follows her as he’s trying to convince her of his feelings for her. Biggie is stowed away on the balloon, and Cooper, who feels like he doesn’t fit in, is also going on the journey.

The royals tell Papi about the tribes being forced to listen to one style of music. They did this by stealing every string they could get their hands on and forcing all of the Trolls to only listen to their style of music.

The king and queen try to explain to Poppy that while the trolls may not agree on many things, their differences are essential, and this is what makes them trolls.

Biggie and Branch travel to the land of Volcano Rock City to confront Barb and free the trolls. Barb’s ready to play in her debut concerts for her sixth strings guitar meanwhile, Poppy is in prison under the stage.

The audience for the concert is all captured trolls. Barb confesses that Poppy’s attempts to be a better queen and do a good thing reveals that rock is the only music, and Barb’s going to use her enchanted guitar to turn all trolls into rock zombies.

Poppy is one step ahead of Barb and wears gumdrop earplugs to prevent the music from taking control of her. Having Barb’s guitar, she lectures her about not listening to her people smashing it. The broken guitar releases all the strings and Trolls from their zombie-like state and ends the music with control over all trolls.

Cooper begins to hear his heartbeat for the first time. His proximity to a microphone amplifies this. Prince takes up the runway beach, and all the trolls start stomping together.

They’ve learned that they can make music using different sounds. Poppy takes this opportunity to get everyone singing together, which restores their colors, and everyone begins to understand the importance of music.

Barb joins the singing trolls, and her colors are restored. Poppy turns to her to offer friendship despite all her wrongs. Eventually, Branch finds the courage to tell Poppy how he feels.

At the end of the Trolls World Tour, all the Trolls from the different lands are finally united after reconciling their differences.
