Movie Apocalypse: ‘Trolls World Tour’ Is the Most Important Film of 2020

With new theatrical releases on hold, ‘Trolls World Tour’ has become a fascinating test case for the future of movies

Universal Pictures


The Trolls sequel wouldn’t normally be a topic of serious interrogation on the show, but with new theatrical releases on hold, Trolls World Tour has become a fascinating test case for the future of movies. After what appears to be a successful rollout straight to streaming video on demand, Sean and Amanda break down the industry implications of the film’s release (0:57). Then, Rob Harvilla joins to talk about parenting with movies during quarantine, the particular frustrations of the Trolls universe, and why this is one of the most important films ever made about rock criticism (14:29).
