Twenty years after splitting up, iconic 1990s boy band NSYNC look set to reunite to contribute a song to the upcoming animated sequel "Trolls Band Together".
After the trailer for the upcoming animated film, the third installment in DreamWorks' Trolls franchise, hinted at a boy band reunion storyline for Justin Timberlake's character, Branch, a source told the outlet, "JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick are expected to have surprise roles in the third Trolls film, 'Trolls Band Together,' with Justin Timberlake."
The source added that the quintet will also reunite as *NSYNC to release a new song for the movie - their first song together since 2001's "Girlfriend".
The trailer for the film suggested a boy band reunion storyline for Timberlake’s character Branch who was once in a group together called BroZone with his brothers (played byTroye Sivan, Kid Cudi, Daveed Diggs and Eric Andre).
The story sees one brother Floyd (Sivan) kidnapped, leading John Dory (Andre) to track down Branch and reunite the group and save their brother.
While fans have been asking about an *NSYNC reunion for years now, and the group members have assembled in different combinations for some special events - most recently to perform "Bye Bye Bye" at Ryan Cabrera's wedding to Alexa Bliss - this would mark the first time that Timberlake has performed with the other four members since their 2002 split.
