Trolls World Tour

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.

Queen Poppy (Anna Kendrick), Branch (Justin Timberlake), and the rest of your favorite Trolls are back for another musical adventure that's bigger—and louder—than ever before! In Trolls World Tour, Poppy and Branch discover that their kingdom is only one of six musical realms—Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop, and Rock—that were once united in perfect harmony. When the power-hungry ruler of the Rock Trolls threatens to silence all other music so her tribe can reign supreme, Poppy and Branch must embark on an epic quest to unite the realms of Trollkind, before the songs in their hearts are lost forever!

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

Ranking:

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)
