DreamWorks Animation secures movie rights for Troll dolls

Posted on

DreamWorks Animation has snatched up the movie rights for the iconic Happy Troll Doll character, or more commonly known as “Troll dolls” or “Treasure Trolls,” according to Variety. DreamWorks Animation licensed the character from the Danish company Dam Things, and the studio has hired screenwriters Adam Wilson and Melanie Wilson LaBracio to write a script that’ll reportedly expand upon the Troll dolls’ mythology. The Troll dolls, which became an American toy fad in the 1960s, recently made a cameo appearance as train passengers during the opening action sequence of Disney-Pixar’s Toy Story 3.
