The Trolls are small creatures who live in an almost perpetual state of happiness, singing, dancing, and hugging all day long. However, they are discovered by the Bergen, large creatures who never feel happy but discover that they can feel happy for a moment if they eat a Troll. The Bergen put the Trolls and their tree in a cage, and hold an annual festival in which each Bergen gets its feeling of happiness by eating a Troll. However, the Trolls, led by their King Peppy (Jeffrey Tambor), escape through underground tunnels on the day that the Bergen crown Prince Gristle Jr. (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) would eat his first Troll. The furious Bergen King Gristle Sr. (John Cleese) banishes his Chef (Christine Baranski) who was in charge of the Troll preparation.
Twenty years later, King Peppy’s daughter, the extremely happy and optimistic pink troll Princess Poppy (Anna Kendrick), throws a big party to celebrate the Trolls’ escape, despite the fears and warnings of the gray grumpy glum Troll Branch (Justin Timberlake) that loud parties will attract the Bergen. Branch’s fears are realized when indeed the banished Bergen Chef sees the fireworks and captures a number of Trolls. Poppy is among the Trolls who managed to hide but discovers that none of the other Trolls dare to venture to Bergen Town to rescue their friends. She goes by herself but gets trapped by several spider-like creatures. She is saved by the reluctant Branch, and together they go to Bergen Town.
Poppy and Branch discover that their friends are being guarded by the scullery maid Bridget (Zooey Deschanel), and strike a deal with her: if she frees their friends, they will help her get a date with the now King Gristle Jr. While setting her up for the date, Branch reveals that he is the way he is because he caused his grandmother, Grandma Rosiepuff (GloZell), to be eaten after a Bergen found him because of his singing. After his grandmother was eaten, he turned from blue to grey.
