DreamWorks Animation brought their trippy animated musical adventure Trolls to Comic-Con this year. As we’ve seen in the trailers, it’s a feature film adaptation of the wild-haired dolls that became popular in the 1990s, and it brings a bunch of pop music hits to the big screen with a so many bright colors, weird characters and creatures, all making for a delightful acid trip that’s safe for kids.
The studio showed off about 15 minutes of footage from the movie, and I was surprised to find that this wasn’t just a showcase for a bunch of pop songs for no reason. Instead, it’s a musical where the songs really motivate the story and help develop the characters. Plus, the original songs executive produced by Justin Timberlake are bound to be favorites of kids and adults alike.

So far the images from Transformers: The Last Knight have only offered glimpses of the new vehicle forms for the Autobot Bumblebee and the Decepticon Barricade. But that changes today as we get a look at an adorable new Autobot named Squeeks. And with a name like that, you wouldn’t expect him to turn into a fancy sports car or some kind of military vehicle. In fact, he doesn’t even turn into a car at all. Instead, Squeeks is a little blue Vespa scooter.
In addition, to the reveal of the new Transformers character Squeeks, a couple interesting new logos for the forthcoming sixth and seventh installments of the Transformers franchise were revealed, with one of them seemingly confirming that it will be a film focusing on Bumblebee.
