Lovable toy-size figures. We like them a lot.
The Good Luck Trolls, with their frizzy, pastel-colored hair, are coming to the big screen via DreamWorks Animation. ...
Of course, trolls, elves and dollies don't always make it to the big screen. Disney quietly smothered King of the Elves several months ago, and four years back, some freshly minted Disney cartoon exec cancelled a project about a lawn gnome, one of the executives asking in a meeting:
"Can anybody tell me why we're making this? (effx: crickets) ... Well, we're not making this ..."
(Or as Suite 101 put it: "... [W]hen Pixar co-founders John Lasseter and Ed Catmull took over the leadership role at Disney Animation in May of 2006, they took one look at the script and promptly consigned it to the circular filing system ...")
But here's to the Good Luck Trolls. Long may they prosper.
