Queen Poppy, Branch, Creek and Mayor Zuna discover that there are many other different Troll tribes scattered over separate lands. Each tribe was devoted to a different kind of music, like for example: pop, rock, funk, classical, country, techno and more. However, when rockers Queen Barb and King Thrash, the leaders of the Rock Trolls, were planning to destroy all forms of music forever, Poppy, Branch, Creek, Zuna and their friends must embark on a daring mission to unite many different Troll tribes to save the diverse melodies from becoming extinct.
The film starts off with a celebration of the Techno Trolls, led by King Trollex, until it was crashed by the Rock Trolls, led by King Thrash and his daughter Queen Barbara. After Barb destroys his DJ station with her guitar's power, King Trollex is forced to surrender the string that powers Techno music.
Meanwhile, the Pop Trolls and the Wild Trolls are finally getting together, thanks to the new mayor of Wild Troll City, Zuna. Also, Guy Diamond gave birth to a baby Hip-Hop Troll named Tiny Diamond. Then, Branch's friends Wacky, Albert and Lulli introduce the gang to their new friends Legsly, a Pop Troll with super stretchable legs; her cousin Armor, a Pop Troll with super stretchable arms; Arabesque, a magenta Glitter Troll who loves to dance; Rudy, a Sporty Troll who loves all sports; and Wim, another Fuzzling Troll. Branch wonders where the rest of the Trollimals are, but Lulli replies that they are visiting the Bergens, but they will be back soon. Suddenly, Poppy, the queen of Harmony Village, recieves a message from Barb and Thrash that invites all Trolls from every tribe to a party to unite their music. Zuna and King Peppy tell the story of how the Troll tribes became scattered throughout their world Troll Kingdom. Each tribe was represented by a different style of music: for example, Pop, Funk, Classical, Techno, Country, and Rock (which are the primary tribes). The music is powered by a magical string kept by the leader of each primary tribe.
Poppy wants to help Barb and Thrash unite the different forms of music, but the adults, Branch, Creek, Zuna, Wacky, Albert and Lulli warn her not to trust their intentions and to accept that the other Trolls are different. Poppy does not listen, and sends a cheerful reply to the Rock Trolls via Debbie, Barb's pet bat. Meanwhile, Thrash gloats over the Rock Trolls' victory of snatching the Techno string, revealing his plan to string an enchanted guitar with all six strings, and play a power cord strong enough to destroy all other music, replacing it with rock. However, unbeknownst to him, Barb is insecure about joining him in the plan, and wants to so bad unite all the Trolls.
Wanting to prove herself as a good leader, Poppy takes their tribe's string and goes on a journey to unite the other groups of Trolls, via a flower balloon named Shelia B (driven by an Italian-accented TrollHippo named Fabriton), being joined by Branch (in an attempt to express his feelings towards her) and his pet stuffed animals Snowy and Croco. As a result of chasing a squirrel over a snack, Creek, Zuna, and the former mayor Ralph accidentally stow aboard the balloon and join them. Wacky, Albert and Lulli are very worried about Branch's safety, so they use the flying car machine to follow them without them knowing, bringing along newcomers Harvest and Marcy. Zuna tells Branch that she wants to express her feelings towards Creek.
Meanwhile, Cooper and DJ Suki feel different among the Pop Trolls, so they decide to split up and look for Trolls who are just like them. Pansy, Raven, Jules, Crane, Lukas, CJ Suki and DJ Sonic decide to go with Suki, while Kiara, Autumn, Esperanza, Milo, River and Katana go with Cooper. Suki's group went to the shores of the destroyed Techno Reef, and they meet a pale sky blue Techno Troll named Vapor, the sole survivor of the destruction of the Techno tribe. DJ Suki is shocked to find out that she is a Techno Troll as well, and is also Trollex's long-lost twin sister.
Poppy and the gang went to Retro Island, where they meet Princess Roxy, co-leader of the Disco Trolls. Wacky, Albert, Lulli, Harvest and Marcy meet up with the gang and tell them that they were worried about their safety, especially if the Rock Trolls could hurt them. Roxy introduces her friends Tresillo (a Reggaeton Troll from Latin Beach), Wani (a K-Pop Troll from Global Pop Forest), Jazzy and Waldo (a Jazz Troll from Jazzin' Town, and Mr. Roller (a Hip-Hop Troll from Rappin' City), as well as her mother Queen Trollee. They are the leaders of the unpopular tribes. She hears all about what the Rock Trolls are doing, but Poppy cannot believe it and wants to see for herself.
The balloon ends up in Symphonyville, the land of Classical Trolls, which, to Poppy's horror, has been decimated by Thrash's armada, who captured all the citizens. A single Classical Troll named Allegra tells Poppy the truth behind what happens, and Poppy decides to now unite the other Trolls to stop the Rock Trolls. Creek, Wacky, Albert and Lulli urge her to return home to protect the Pop string, but Poppy reveals it hidden in her hair. Ralph was starting to freak out a bit, but Poppy makes a pinky promise to protect him and the whole kingdom. The gang then winds up in Lonesome Flats, the home of the Country Trolls, where they meet Colt Chesterton, who shows them around. After hearing how despondent and downbeat their music is, they try to cheer them up with a pop medley, but this offends the Country Trolls (including their leader, Delta Dawn, and her lieutenant Teresa Tumbleweed), and they wind up in jail.
Suddenly, Colt and another Country Troll named Hickory, who claims he is moved by Poppy's motives, break them out, leading to a chase to a ravine, where the group falls into a river. Creek and Albert do not trust Hickory, even when the Troll builds a raft to take the group downstream. The conversation is interrupted by Chaz, a Smooth Jazz TrollWeasel who was hired to catch Poppy for Thrash, who was incredibly offended by Poppy's reply letter. Hickory incapacitates Chaz, but Ralph, disillusioned and annoyed by Poppy's poor leadership, decides to return home, being followed by Colt, Allegra, Harvest and Marcy to comfort him. Shortly after, the group is abducted by a space ship wielding magical soap bubbles.
Inside the spaceship, the group arrives , home of the Funk Trolls, and meets up with Cooper and his group, who is revealed to have been a long lost identical twin prince of Funk all along, and his group. Cooper tells Poppy he finds comfort in identifying with both Pop and Funk, and his parents, King Quincy and Queen Essence, reveal to Poppy that the Trolls divided their music long ago because Pop Trolls had attempted to steal the strings, like Barb and Thrash are doing now. Quincy explains to Poppy that differences aren't bad, and trying to make all Trolls the same doesn't help the problem.
After the Rock Trolls hi-jack the Funk Trolls' ship, Cooper ejects the group in bubbles, accidentally separating Poppy, Branch, Creek and Zuna from the others. The four fight when Poppy refuses to return home to their friends, and Branch admonishes her insisting that she can't be a good queen if she's a poor listener and that Albert was right when he said that she's an "idiot", and the four go their separate ways, heartbroken. Branch, Creek and Zuna are soon captured by both Wani and Tresillo with their groups of friends. However, Snowy, Choco, Jazzy, Waldo and Mr. Roller arrive and convinces them to stop capturing and fighting and save Poppy and all music.
Meanwhile, Wacky, Albert and Lulli finds Poppy, who breaks down in tears after realizing that she is a terrible leader since she

(During the song "Trolls Wanna Have Good Times")
- Wacky: (runs over to Poppy, Branch, Creek, Zuna, Biggie and Cooper) Guys! Guys! You gotta come with me, quick! There's something wrong with Guy Diamond! He's sitting on a mushroom screaming in pain! Gia's with him right now!
(Guy Diamond was heard screaming in pain)
- Guy Diamond: (sitting on a mushroom while in pain) Poppy! Everyone! Come quick! It's a emergency!
(The Snack Pack and the Wild Pack run to their friends)
- Gia Grooves:
- Guy Diamond:
- Guy Diamond: (freaking out) I think I'm having a... BABY!
(Everyone screams in panic, while Cooper gasps and Zuna squeals with delight)
- DJ Suki:
- Satin and Chenille:
- Smidge and Milo: (throwing temper tantrums; furiously) NO FAIR! WE DON'T WANNA BE BIG SIBLINGS!
(While the gang is on their way to Vibe City, Marcy sees Ralph looking depressed)
- Marcy: Hey, Ralph. Are you okay?
- Ralph: (sighs) I can't do this anymore. We need to go home.
(Everyone looks at Ralph shocked)
- Poppy: But Ralph, we can't stop now! The Funk Trolls' territory is not that far from here!
- Ralph: And what good would that possibly do? They'll end up suffering the same fate as everybody else we've encountered!
- Poppy: Ralph, please! One more boat ride and we'll make it to Vibe City in no time! It'll be okay!
- Ralph: (to Poppy, frustratingly and angrily) No, no, NO! I wish you would just stop saying that and listen to me for once, Poppy! Just please! We are all here because of your decision to unite the whole kingdom! Symphonyville was burnt to the ground, Lonesome Flats had us all nearly jailed for life before being invaded, and Techno Reef was probably already destroyed as well! And who knows what's gonna happen to Vibe City too? We all saw what Queen Barb and King Thrash are capable of, but you, in addition, don't even care to listen at all! You just don't give anyone else a chance! All you ever care about is yourself and saving the world! You only hear what you want to hear, and it puts us all in danger! DJ Suki, Cooper, Smidge, Guy Diamond, Tiny Diamond, Satin and Chenille, everyone! And even me! How are you supposed to save the world if you can't even keep us safe? Or more importantly, yourself?
(Everyone, especially Poppy, was shocked and horrified of Ralph's outburst)
- Ralph: (sadly and bitterly) The leaders of Rock are trying to destroy our music, and now they're trying to destroy us. We are not safe here anymore. We're not safe anywhere. And it's all thanks to you. You made a pinky promise to me, Queen Poppy. And you broke it. All because of your selfish and careless ways. I always thought you make a good leader of Harmony Village, but now after what happened, I just don't know. I feel like I don't even know you anymore. I can't believe you ever became queen in the first place.
