We sat down with Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger to talk about how they wrote the screenplay for Trolls. Happiness is the central theme of this 3D animated film. How did they write the screenplay and create a universe for trolls? Tune in to find out.
A long time ago in a far away city where the Charles river flowed Aibel and Berger worked as management consultants. While they made some moolah they realized they were not cut out to be consultants. Their gut instincts proved to be true. One fine morning Providence intervened in their life when one of them spotted a TV script lying on a colleague’s table. That script was their stairway to discovering a whole new life in the world of entertainment.The rest is history as they say. The duo packed their bags and went west to Los Angeles and started writing scripts for TV and eventually films.
Aibel and Berger wrote the script for the Kung Fu Panda trilogy and many other films. Their films have raked in a couple of billion dollars in revenue. They are Unicorns to use that term from Silicon Valley.
