Parents know that when you're choosing a film for family movie night, there are a host of factors to consider. Because your choice will make or break the entire experience.
Choose wrongly and the fun Friday night you had planned will be unsalvageable, no matter how much buttery popcorn you throw at it. It's a layered process. You need to find something the kids are into, bonus points if it appeals across age brackets. It needs to have a kid-centric storyline that parents will also get a kick out of (add in a hint of nostalgia for added adult appeal). Add in a host of relatable characters and engaging animation and you’re onto a winner.
And this summer, Trolls Band Together ticks all those boxes as the boy band fever dream to watch at home with kids, and is here to get any millennial parent feeling nostalgic.
Here's why Trolls Band Together is exactly what we've been waiting for to keep the whole family entertained.

1. If there's one thing the Trolls franchise nails, it’s a storyline.
Every. Single. Time. Each instalment has taken the audience on a brand-new adventure with enough twists (and tbh, awesome tunes) to keep both kids and adults compelled to keep watching.
