PODCAST: JONATHAN AIBEL & GLENN BERGER ON WRITING “TROLLS”

Aibel & Berger

Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berg share on how they came to write the screenplay for Trolls. One of the interesting things about trolls is that there was no backstory or a universe available for them.

Aibel and Berger got an opportunity to architect and create a whole new world and backstory for these happy-go-lucky trolls. Their world consists of music, dance and hug time and making sure they stay clear from the Bergens, who are these grumpy, unhappy creatures. The only way Bergens can be happy is when they eat happy little Trolls. For 20 odd years the Trolls managed to stay safe. But, then one day a Bergen discovers the safe haven of trolls and what happens next is what the film is about.

We spoke to Aibel and Berger on how they became writers in Hollywood and for a string of TV and film including the Kung Fu Panda trilogy.
