Trolls World Tour | 2020 | PG | – 1.3.1

content-ratingsWhy is “Trolls World Tour” rated PG? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “some mild rude humor.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes hugs with a couple being romantic, and a couple of male troll chests and a couple of troll buttocks; several scenes of trolls being threatened by and attacked by large vessels with hatches that look like mouths that glow red, a few scenes of villages in rubble after having been attacked, a feared drowning, trolls locked in cells, and several arguments and some fighting; and some mild language and name-calling. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


A new troll queen (voiced by Anna Kendrick) thinks she has everything figured out until she realizes that another queen wants to take over and rule under the banner of Hard Rock — to the exclusion of all other music genres. Also with the voices of Justin Timberlake, Rachel Bloom, James Corden, Ron Funches, Kelly Clarkson, Anderson.Paak, Sam Rockwell, George Clinton, Mary J. Blige, Kenan Thompson and Kunal Nayyar. Directed by Walt Dohrn & David P. Smith. A few lines of song lyrics are sung in Korean and Spanish without translation. [Running Time: 1:30]

Trolls World Tour SEX/NUDITY 1

 – A male troll and a female troll confess their love for each other. A troll imagines hugging another troll. A male troll tries to tell a female troll that he loves her, but she tells him that they are friends before he can bring himself to admit his feelings.
 A troll shaves fur off her leg. A troll playing smooth jazz floats in the air and we see that he is shirtless, with a heart shaped tuft of hair on his chest. A couple of female trolls wear outfits that include fishnet tights and legless shorts. A troll covered with only glitter is shown from the side/back and we see the outline of his buttocks. A cupid-like troll is shown fully nude with the outline of buttocks visible. A troll’s chest and abdomen are seen throughout the movie (he wears a vest that hangs open) and his pants are torn in one scene (we see his partial buttocks).

Trolls World Tour VIOLENCE/GORE 3

 – Many trolls invade a town and demand that the town leaders turn over a string before destroying everything and taking their people away. A troll plays a loud chord on a guitar that fires a power blast that cuts a stage in half and we later see that the trolls in the audience have been taken away. Trolls are locked in a cell until another troll pulls the door off and rides out of town pulling them on the door; they are chased by townspeople and one troll that has chomping teeth bites one troll on the leg while another grabs his foot with long mustache hair; they fall off a cliff and into water below (one of the chased characters imagines an afterlife before reviving). Trolls in a balloon float toward a village that appears to have been raided and we see smoldering embers, rubble and burning sheet music with no one around but a tiny flute. We see a village destroyed but its people are still there and seem unharmed. A troll kicks another troll away and he sinks under water in the distance. Two trolls struggle over strings that break and dissolve turning everything grey. Two trolls hold another troll by the arms. Several trolls are zapped with a blast of energy from a guitar and turn into blocks of lava rock; then the rock breaks open we see the trolls with glowing red eyes and they are referred to as “rock zombies.” A troll swings by his hair to block a blast of energy shot toward another troll locked in a cell and the first troll is shown encased in a lava rock.
 A large submarine-type flying vessel is shown in several scenes (with smaller ones flanking it) clad in heavy metal with large spikes on it and with red light glowing from a large mouth-like opening with what resemble large teeth.
 A troll accompanied by many other trolls in aggressive looking vessels tells a large crowd of trolls, “I am here to take your string.” Two trolls argue and one storms away. A bat troll flies through a village and chases a troll, gets caught in another troll’s hair and is wrestled to the ground by another troll that manages to calm it. A troll says that an avalanche fell on other trolls. We hear that trolls separated into different tribes each with their own string and type of music in the past to keep from fighting. We see what seems to be a funeral procession and a troll is shown in a coffin. A troll pops out of the back of another troll (it had looked like a centaur). A troll wears a belt buckle in the shape of a skull.
 Several trolls are taken into bubbles and lifted into a flying vessel. A troll gasps and trudges through a desert; he thinks he finds a pool of water but it is a mirage and he vomits out a lot of sand that he ate thinking it was water (we see the sand pour out of his mouth). A troll flies away in a balloon and another troll uses his hair to climb up trees and jump into the balloon’s basket; they sail away together.
 A troll yells and uses a saw to cut a sofa in half, and then throws the saw and it cuts another troll’s hair off before sticking into a wall. A troll yells and grabs an invitation that he then eats. A troll calms other agitated trolls by pinning them on the ground and flicking their eyes, then stroking their ears or arms. A troll finds a basket and asks another troll what’s in it, the second troll says, “Man stuff,” and the first opens it to find weapons (sharpened sticks, rocks and brass knuckles); the first troll kicks the basket out of the flying balloon they are in. A troll says, “She wants to destroy us.” A troll says, “Hating things takes energy.” A car blows glitter into another troll’s face. A song’s lyrics include, “Born to die.” A troll makes a remark about being, “Beat up by a rainbow.” A small troll complains about becoming a big sister. A troll cries a tear that also cries a tear. A troll growls all his words (“growly growl”). A troll cries over a companion and after it revives, says that he feared it had “kicked the bucket.” A troll plays smooth jazz and puts other trolls in a trance. A character says, “Isn’t that puke?” We hear heartbeats and see glowing hearts beating in the chests of many trolls gathered in a crowd.
 A music stage looks like a big head with teeth and molten lava spurts up around it and a large audience. A troll addresses another troll as “God Diamond” and we see him covered with glitter and he gives “birth” to an egg from out of the top of his hair and it hatches to a fully formed but tiny troll. A troll hatches an egg out of its hair. A troll sticks his finger into a small creature’s mouth to keep it from making noise; we later see the creature sucking on the troll’s finger as if it is nursing. Two trolls touch hands and a flash of glitter sprays as they spin in the air.
 Trolls are shown in many different shapes, sizes and colors; some have multiple faces, some look llama-like, one is much larger than the others are, some have very long legs, two trolls are connected by their hair.
 A toilet flushes and a troll wheels out of a bathroom in a wheelchair as a cloud of smoke surrounds him. A troll is shown reading a newspaper in a bathroom (we see toilet paper but no apparent activity). A troll is shown covered with sticky cotton candy residue. A troll sprays cheese from a can into her mouth and it comes out of her nose in the shape of a mustache. A troll pokes herself in the finger with a pin and we see a drop of glittery blood.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
