The co-directors of next month’s Trolls, Walt Dohrn and Mike Mitchell, have a long history with DreamWorks.

Micthell is also behind the original superhero film Sky High — a charming movie that has seemingly gained more fans over the years. Shrek 5 is definitely happening, which neither Dohn or Mitchell are officially involved with, but according to Mitchell, he’s (possibly) working on Sky High 2 at the moment.

Troll dolls last peaked about twenty years ago, but now that the ’90s revival is in full swing, DreamWorks is making a valiant effort to bring back those tiny bright-haired creatures. Coming up from the studio this fall is Trolls, an animated adventure featuring the mellifluous voices of Justin Timberlake (who released his first new single since 2013 for it), Anna Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden, and Gwen Stefani.
Timberlake leads the cast as a grumpy troll who must join forces with an extremely chipper troll (Kendrick) to fight a greater evil. Can these total opposites learn to respect each other and work together? Will they be able to vanquish the villain with the power of love and/or joy? Will the cranky one eventually open up to reveal the song in his heart? Tough questions, if you’ve never seen a movie before.

These new trolls are tiny, colorful, CG-animated, and hip to the musics of today, like Silentó’s “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae).” Watch these creatures get down in the first Trolls trailer after the jump.
