Retail events play key role in franchise strategy for Trolls, says Universal’s Hannah Mungo.

The DreamWorks Trolls Truck Tour has kicked off this week, taking in select The Entertainer, Toys R Us, Smyths and Tesco locations across the UK.

These include a cupcake decorating station, crafting tables. a chance for children to Trollify themselves in Poppy’s Salon, a visit to Branch’s bunker and more.

“Interactive retail events like this play a key role in our franchise strategy for Trolls to sustain our licensing programme and delight fans of all ages.”
