In “Trolls World Tour,” Pop Trolls Queen Poppy faces her biggest challenge yet. After receiving a threatening letter from Queen Barb, Poppy and Branch are shocked to find that there are other types of trolls beside them. Former King Peppy tells them the truth about their story, involving six magic strings that each represent the main genres of music – Pop, Rock, Techno, Classical, Country and Funk. Due to disagreements over the type of songs to be played, the ancestors of each tribe decided to divide the strings and live separately from each other. Now, Queen Barb of the Rock Kingdom plans to collect all the ropes in order to wipe out the other genres and turn everyone into rock zombies. Because of this, Poppy and her friends embark on an adventure beyond their kingdom in hopes of convincing other tribes to join forces to stop Barb’s plans.
