We just 'Can't Stop the Feeling' that it's always a good time for new Justin Timberlake music!

Timberlake and his Trolls co-star, Anna Kendrick, chatted with ET's Ashley Crossan at the San Diego Comic-Con 2016 on Thursday, where he dished that more music is indeed in the works, but he's trying not to rush it.

"I am working on some new music," the 35-year-old singer shared. "I'm kind of taking my time with it."

In the meantime, Timberlake is all about theTrolls movie -- hitting theaters on Nov. 4 -- which sends him and Anna off on a musical-comedy adventure based on those classic Thomas Dam troll dolls, and has a soundtrack that includes the pop star's Billboard chart-topping single, "Can't Stop the Feeling."

"We have a song with Gwen [Stefani] and myself, Ariana Grande," Timberlake teased. "That's been taking up a lot of my time right now."

Meanwhile, being that it is Comic-Con, we had to ask both stars what geek-oriented fandom they'd like to pass on to their kids/grandchildren/etc, and they found themselves coming to the same conclusion.

"Star Wars," Timberlake revealed as his answer, leading Kendrick to change her response from Lord of the Rings, adding, "Star Wars first, obviously."

"Basically any Spielberg or George Lucas anything," Timberlake added. "Indiana Jones, E.T."

And of course, Timberlake took us on a trip down memory lane to Comic-Con 2011, when he walked the floor dressed as Ernie from Sesame Street.

"There was a guy that I guess was doing a feature on me in some magazine, so I made him dress as Bert, and we were Bert and Ernie," the singer hilariously shared. "I think I took more pictures dressed as Ernie than I would have if I had just walked the Comic-Con floor myself."

That just might be the case!
