DreamWorks Animation continues production on a computer-animated musical comedy feature based on the collectible "Troll" doll line (seen briefly in "Guardians Of The Galaxy") directed by Mike Mitchell, targeting a 2016 release, starring Chloë Grace Moretz and Jason Schwartzman:
The 'troll' dolls, were originally created by Danish woodcutter Thomas Dam. They became one of the biggest toy fads in the early 1960's. They became fads again in brief periods from the 1970's through the 1990's and were copied by several manufacturers under different names.
During the 1990's several video games and a video show based on 'troll' dolls were created.
April 2013, DreamWorks Animation announced that they had purchased the Troll doll brand outright from the Dam company.
