The upcoming animated musical comedy Trolls, based on the beloved dolls, is bolstering its cast with the vocal talents of Justin Timberlake.

Dreamworks Animations has announced that Timberlake is joining Anna Kendrick for Trolls. Timberlake will star as survivalist Branch, who is described as hiding “his surprising true colors.” There’s no word yet on whether Branch will have an overly energetic best friend voice by Jimmy Fallon or Andy Samberg.

Timberlake will star alongside Kendrick as Princess Poppy, who will journey alongside Branch outside the world they’ve grown accustomed to.

Trolls comes from Shrek Forever After‘s Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn, and the film is set to open on Nov. 4, 2016.
