SAN DIEGO (AP) – Trolls turned out in full force to kick off the first day of programming at Comic-Con – the ones with the wacky hair, not the ones that hurl insults on the internet.

Audience members in brightly colored wigs watched Thursday as DreamWorks Animation debuted 16 minutes of footage from “Trolls,” an animated feature coming to theaters Nov. 4. It’s based on the toy with tall, neon hair.

In this world, trolls are tiny packages of positivity, who hug every hour. Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake voice a pair of mismatched trolls who have to rescue their friends from troll-eating giants.

Timberlake served as executive producer on the soundtrack, which includes remixes of classics like Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sounds of Silence” and four originals such as “Can’t Stop the Music.”
