Trolls: The Beat Goes On!

I am a big fan of what DreamWorks has done with the Trolls franchise. It is a lot of fun and it is great for kids today and us oldies who grew up with these troll dolls can get a kick out of it too. Trolls: The Beat Goes On is a Netflix animated series that ran for several seasons and it takes place between the first and second movie.

The Movie Review

While I just said that it ran for several seasons (eight to be exact) one of the interesting things about this and the other Trolls series, Trollstopia is that Netflix just pumped this series out like there was no tomorrow. All eight seasons of this show were aired between January 2018 and November 2019!

As a parent what I like about this is that it means that every few months you have fresh episodes to watch. This is as good for us parents as it is for the kids as it stops us from going insane watching the same thing over and over again…. Although even with eight seasons worth of episodes to pick from, my niece would want to watch the same episodes over and over again anyway! But hey, I appreciate the effort from Netflix and DreamWorks.

Engaging Storylines and Fun Musical Adventures

Trolls: The Beat Goes On follows a very similar to what most other kids’ animated shows have offered for the last decade or so. Each 20-plus minute episode is broken up into two shorter episodes. The events of the show take place between the first and second season and we get to see Poppy, Branch and the rest of the gang get up to all kinds of fun musical adventures just like in the movies.

The shorter format means that if an episode is driving you nuts because the kids have watched it a million times, at least it does not last too long! The show has an upbeat and fun vibe about it and like the movies, the parents will have fun and get a few chuckles out of this too. I do feel that it is a little bit more aimed at kids than the movies were, but it still has its moments.

The Visual Appeal of Trolls: The Beat Goes On

The show does not have the same CG look that the two movies it is set between do. It has an animated look and I think that it looks great. It is so bright, and so vibrant that the more I think about it, the more I am sure I like the animated look of the show better than the CG look of the movies. When there is something dark or “scary” (well as scary as Trolls can get) it makes it stand out so much more.

Now, they did not manage to get Anna Kendrick or Justin Timberlake back to voice Poppy and Brance, but their replacements do a great job and kind of sound like them. They did though manage to get a few of the voice actors from the actual movies to reprise their roles here which is cool.

Trolls: Trollstopia vs. Trolls: The Beat Goes On

Trolls: Trollstopia was a lot of fun, but I do prefer just slightly Trolls: The Beat Goes On. I like the wacky and zany nature of the random episodes and there is always something crazy going on. It captures the spirit of the movies very well and I do not see any little Trolls fans being disappointed when they watch this.
