If it feels like season one of DreamWorks' Trolls: The Beat Goes On! just hit Netflix, that's probably because it did... a month ago. But as I first promised you, indeed there is a season two (and three, if we're being honest), and today comes your first-look at the trailer for the next batch of episodes. Full details below, but get ready to head back to Troll Village on March 9, 2018!

Last week, I took you inside DreamWorks Animation for a sneak-preview of DreamWorks' Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Now that the first season of the series (and yes, there will be a second - I can confirm that) has been released for streaming on Netflix, it's time to delve even deeper into the world of the Trolls, and that means going off-screen to look at the latest toys from my friends at Hasbro, who are bringing Troll Village to life with a whole new collection. DreamWorks and Hasbro recently sent us an assortment for review here in The Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ, but before we get going on that, lets first take a look at the new Trolls: The Beat Goes On! Season 1 Featurette, in which Skylar Astin (voice of Branch) and Amanda Leighton (voice of Poppy) throw down some details about their new adventures...

On January 19, 2018, the Trolls obsession continues with a new Netflix Original Series from the crew at DreamWorks. Trolls: The Beat Goes On! picks up where the big-screen film left off, bringing a new series of colorful adventures and magical song to kids and families around the world. There are some changes to the Trolls this time around, but it tends to be the stuff that parents and hardcore fans (and trust me, Trolls has a growing legion!) will notice far before the kids do. Following both the film and recent Trolls Holiday Special, Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake step aside as Poppy and Branch (don't worry, they'll be back for Trolls 2 when it hits theaters in 2020) with Amanda Leighton (The Powerpuff Girls, This is Us) and Kendrick's Pitch Perfect co-star Skylar Astin (Wreck-It Ralph) stepping into those roles. But what if... hypothetically, it was yours truly voicing Branch instead of Skylar or Justin? Let's find out...

Netflix #StreamTeamDreamWorks Trollhunters Part 2 is now streaming on Netflix, and not long ago I was out at DreamWorks Animation in Glendale, California to get an early look at the new season, along with a sneak-preview of what's on the horizon as the Tales of Arcadia expands. Fans of the series have been looking for more ways to enjoy it, and that brings us to the merchandise, which the folks at Funko (an affiliate) have been rolling out over the past few months. In addition to some fantastic 3.75" action figures, characters from Trollhunters have made their way into Funko's signature POP! Vinyl line under POP! Television. Available now through Funko Shop, Target and coming soon to Entertainment Earth, the team at DreamWorks sent over an assortment for review here at Rock Father HQ. Let's take a look...

For the past few years, DreamWorks Animation has been quietly growing an empire on the television front, delivering an incredible amount of original content to Netflix. Thus far, much of that content has been in the film-to-television realm, adapting the characters from their feature films into episodic series, and the next one to hit the scene is Trolls. Following the massive success of the recent film and just-released Holiday Special, Trolls: The Beat Goes On! will come to Netflix on January 19, 2018 with season one streaming in its entirety.  Check out the official trailer below, along with some early details on a few new series coming next year, including a pair based on Boss Baby and Captain Underpants!
