Overview -

Starring Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake and Rachel Bloom, Trolls World Tour is a surprisingly entertaining follow-up with a heartfelt message about the unifying power of music. The sequel takes the 4K Ultra HD stage with a reference-quality Dolby Vision HDR presentation, a sensational, hard-rocking Dolby Atmos track and a small but nonetheless good set of bonuses. The overall UHD package is Highly Recommended for the whole family.

Vital Disc Stats: The Blu-ray

Universal Studios Home Entertainment brings Trolls World Tour to Blu-ray with a glossy slipcover. The Region Free, BD50 disc sits comfortably opposite a DVD-9 copy and a flyer for a Digital Copy, unlocking only the HD version with Dolby Digital Plus 5.1 audio. After a few skippable trailers, viewers are taken to a menu screen with the usual options, full-motion clips and music playing in the background.

Video Review

5 Stars out of 5

The trolls take their overly enthusiastic musical show on the Blu-ray road with a passionately exuberant 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 encode, boasting a highly spirited and garishly loud array of colors. While the richly saturated primaries ooze with sprightly, bubbly energy, secondary hues bathe each song and performance in a flamboyantly animated spectacle of hot pinks, elegant violets, deep teals and glorious magentas. Pitch-perfect contrast supplies clean, crisp whites and brilliantly beaming highlight, making for a stupendous feast for the eyes from start to finish. Each scene is balanced with luxurious, inky blacks and superb shadow detailing within the darkest, velvetiest corners, providing the 2.39:1 image with an eye-catching three-dimensional depth. Coming directly from a digital source, the freshly-minted transfer also takes the HD stage with striking, razor-sharp details throughout, exposing the tiniest, out-of-place hair and fiber in the felt CG-design of the Trolls universe, giving each character an impressive realistic quality. (Video Rating: 100/100)

Final Thoughts

The trolls are back for more infectious song & dance performances, silly shenanigans and a heartfelt message about the unifying power of music in Trolls World Tour. Starring Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake and Rachel Bloom, the CG-animated follow-up is surprisingly entertaining, exploring some unexpectedly mature themes for young audiences to ponder. The sequel charges the Blu-ray stage with a superb, reference-quality HD video presentation and a sensational, hard-rocking Dolby Atmos soundtrack. With a small but nonetheless good set of supplements, the overall package is highly recommended for the whole family.
