HOLLYWOOD – New animated film Trolls World Tour set to sweep the Oscars, according to some.
When the Queen of the Hard Rock Trolls tries to take over all the Troll kingdoms, Queen Poppy and her friends try different ways to save all the Trolls. So reads the plot synopsis of Trolls World Tour. A cheerful animated flick, no one believed it would have much impact on the Academy, beyond the animation category. But with a dearth of cinema product on our screens, Academy insiders claim that the new film looks set to sweep the board.
Jacob Stankley of The New York Times told us:
The only way anyone can stop Trolls World Tour would be if the Academy were to accept films for nominations without theatrical release. But that is never going to happen. Not in one million years. Just no way. You’re kidding me? Really?
Billy Hunt, the little kid fishing on the crescent moon in the Dreamworks logo, expressed his delight:
It’s amazing. We’re all really pleased here at Dreamworks. But there’s no point counting our chickens. as we always say here at Dreamworks, you can give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, but capture an adolescent boy and force to fish in perpetuity and you have yourself a brand.
Despite everyone being pleased, some were angry. Susan Sarandon told the Studio Exec:
This is a disgrace. That’s a racist, sexist, transphobic film, which is why I’m going to do everything in my power to see that Donald Trump wins another term.
