Looks like Red Velvet’s getting a Troll-ish upgrade! The K-pop girl group will be featured in the upcoming Trolls World Tour film, which is set to arrive on April 17 and stars the likes of Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake.
Excitement erupted amid fans of the act after Red Velvet and their 2019 song “Zimzalabim” appeared in a Trolls World Tour trailer that was released by Thailand film distributor Major Group on Wednesday (Jan. 15). DreamWorks Animation has since confirmed the quintet’s inclusion in the film to Billboard.
“Zimzalabim” peaked at No. 10 on the World Digital Song Sales chart last July.
In the upcoming movie, the Trolls featured in the original 2016 film discover that their world is full of different sects of musical trolls, and Red Velvet represent the pop subsect of K-pop trolls. Other famous musicians, including Ozzy Osbourne, Anderson .Paak, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Gwen Stefani, J Balvin, and many, many others are also set to appear in the film.
Red Velvet most recently released their single “Psycho” last month.
