What could possibly be more fun than watching the sensational new animated feature film “Trolls?” The answer—interviewing the brilliantly creative people behind the story! Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn sat down with me recently to share their three year journey from “chicken scratch” drawings to seeing people “dancing in their seats” in the theater. It was a dreary, rainy day when I walked into the room to interview these men whose positive energy simply exuded from them and essentially parted the clouds as we discussed “Trolls.”
If you’re my age, you know, over 20 by 30 years, you’ll remember the little Troll figures or dolls. I had a pink one with sticky feet on my bed’s headboard. And now, Dreamworks, thanks to Mitchell and Dohrn, have brought these little dolls to life, giving us a wonderfully positive message while they entertain us.
