DreamWorks Animation is planning to bring the Good Luck Trolls, with their frizzy, pastel-colored hair on big screen.
The group behind the Shrek franchise said on Tuesday that it has licensed the classic happy Troll Doll character with Danish Company Dam Things, which manages the toy line to make an animated feature.
The screen play will be written by Adam Wilson and Melanie Wilson LaBracio. The Troll doll was the brain child of Danish fisherman and woodcutter Thomas Dam. Thomas craved a doll on wood based on Scandinavian trolls for his loving daughter, Lajla.
During the early 60s, toy line became popular in Europe and the U. S. during the early '60s and it also became a fashion embraced by kids.
As Dam Things, which was famous for making toys, lost power of its copyright after failing to obey the laws of U. S, imitators rushed the market in the 70s and 80s. Nevertheless, due to 1994 Congressional law that re-established copyright protection for number of foreign works, the Dam family recaptured power.
DIC Entertainment created the animated series Trollz in 2005, with an additional doll line aimed at girls, but the new modern version didn't gain the same achievement, as the classic versions.
