'Trolls', which is being produced by Gina Shay, is also set to star Chloë Grace Moretz and Jason Schwartzman.
Meanwhile, this isn't the first time Justin has leant his voice to a character as he also worked on the popular animation 'Shrek the Third' and 'Yogi Bear.'
'Trolls', which is being released by 20th Century Fox, is set to hit UK cinemas on October 21, 2016, and make its way across US theatres on November 4, 2016.
