Any movie helmed by Justin Timberlake is set to be a good old belly ache and DreamWorks' 33rd animated feature, Trolls, looks like it'll be just that. Hitting theaters this winter, the tale follows a Troll survivalist called Crunch (JT), journeying to save his village from the big, bad Bergens with the help of a glitter-coated pink Poppy Troll played by Anna Kendrick.

You can get the brightly-colored gist of it all by watching the official trailer below:

While we've still got a way to go before this bonkers bunch of Trolls — known as the Snack Pack — explode onto screens everywhere in November, by checking the list below you can already familiarize yourself with the gang you'll come to know and love.

1. Anna Kendrick — Poppy

  • Who is she? The daughter of King Peppy.

  • What's she like? Hot pink skin and sparkle-coated cheeks, our bedazzled protagonist is described as being relentlessly upbeat, naive and, first and foremost, a spoilled princess — most things can be solved with a dance, song and a hug.

2. Zooey Deschanel — Bridget

  • Who is she? The most kindhearted Bergen troll in Bergen town.

  • What's she like? A total sweetheart, Bridget might be a timid and overly-sensitive Troll but she's probably the one you'll want to hug the most. Bridget, with her sugar-plum hair and rosy cheeks, works as a scullery maid and dishwasher for her mean old boss, the Chef.

3. Justin Timberlake — Branch

  • Who is he? A non-singing grey Troll.

  • What's he like? Essentially the polar opposite of Poppy, Branch is somewhat of a cynical misery-guts. He frowns upon his fellow Trolls all-singing-all-dancing attitude and instead spends his overly-cautious existence preparing for the worst.

8. Jeffrey Tambor — King Peppy

  • Who is he? The Troll leader

  • What's he like? He saved the Troll population from the Bergens, so he's pretty great — a national hero, in fact. Brimming with inspirational quotes, he's become a little senile in his old age but nonetheless remains beloved by his followers.
