“I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event [and] couldn’t be more excited that they will collide in DreamWorks’ Trolls. This film is very special, the music is going to be very special and I can’t wait for everyone to experience it all,” Timberlake said.
The children’s movie will hit theaters in November 2016.
It makes sense that Timberlake would tackle a kid-friendly project as he officially became a DILF in April 2015 when wife Jessica Biel welcomed son Silas Randall. Although, the “Mirrors” singer has lent his famous pipes to voices for “Shrek The Third” (2007) and “Yogi Bear” (2010).
Here's hoping that JT will be so inspired by creating the “Trolls” soundtrack, he’ll start working on the follow-up to his last Grammy-winning album, “The 20/20 Experience Part 1 and 2.”
Timberlake took to Twitter to make it official, and debut his grump, gray character Branch. Start thinking of #hairpuns, y'all!
