From the creators of Shrek comes smart, funny & fresh animated comedy of the year – TROLLS. Film directed by Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn features the voices of Anna Kendrick & Justin Timberlake. Trolls is funny and sweet filled with great songs. The story is good, with relatable characters and situations and is predictable. However, what makes Trolls a must watch is its visual beauty filled with bright / vivid colours...

Plot:
The adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon.

Overall Review:
After hits like: Zootopia, The Jungle Book & The BFG, I had high expectations from Disney’s Pete’s Dragon. But Disney has failed to deliver. Pete’s Dragon is nothing less than The Jungle Book meets The Good Dinosaur. Disney rolls the dice with a green fuzzy dragon Elliot, the biggest asset of the film. It works brilliantly mainly because they craft the illusion in such way that you believe he is really there...
