Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Sony's 'Angry Birds' Animated Movie
"We're going to be working on managing our anger through movement!" Oh boy, here we go. Have you ever sat there and wondered - why are all the angry birds so angry? No, you haven't? That isn't the most pressing question going through your mind every single day? Well, too bad, because next summer Sony is going to release The Angry Birds Movie, a CG-animated movie about the Angry Birds the finally answers the question of "why are the birds so angry?" And a few other stories, too. The voice cast in this includes Jason Sudeikis as Red, along with Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Peter Dinklage, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph and others. This is pretty much following in the Minions' footsteps, but with Angry Birds instead.
Here's the first official trailer for Clay Kaytis & Fergal Reilly's Angry Birds movies, direct from YouTube:
The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to. Angry Birds is being made by Sony Pictures Imageworks and co-directed by Clay Kaytis & Fergal Reilly, both making their directorial debut after working in animation / art departments on many animated films previously. The screenplay is by Jon Vitti. Sony is releasing Angry Birds in 3D everywhere starting May 20th, 2016 next summer. So?

My son might watch it. Animation looks good, doesn't look like much else going on.

Hasn't Angry Birds run its course? Hopefully this will be its swansong (no pun intended)

I thought it run its course like 3 years ago. This movie is late to the party, I dont think its at all relevant these days.

I always assumed they were angry because their eggs were taken by the pigs.

My 9 year old will want to watch this for sure. Animation looks great. Trailer didn't give us much of a sense of the story though.

the birds look weird, I hope we see them fighting the pigs like in the game...

Can Sony just fucking bankrupt already? What a waste of money.

This would have made so much more money three years ago...

I'm disappointed in the trailer like everyone else, but for a different reason. I was hoping Stella would be in it. Angry Birds is old news now, but man I love Stella.

Animation looks great and who knows. Didn't give much of the story because it was a tease about the characters but I will see it. Would have been better a while ago when Angry Birds fever was on a ridiculous high but you never know.

Looks like it has potential to be fun, but clearly irrelevant in 2016. Although, with the inevitable toy tie-in and additional cell phone games, this might just make it to #92 on the top 100 things of 2016!!!
