Everyone’s favourite mobile game (okay, maybe not everyone), “Angry Birds”, will be making its way to the big screen and we now have a trailer for the animated feature film.
Similar to the movie stills that were released a couple of weeks ago, the trailer actually heightened our anticipation a little more because it looks like it’s going to be a fun film!
Sony Pictures won the worldwide distribution rights to this animated film back in 2013. The movie will explain why the birds are so angry and their war against the pigs. As explained by producer John Cohen (of “Despicable Me” fame), it is “the origin story for how that conflict came to exist between birds and little green piggies.”
Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast member Jason Sudeikis is voicing Red, the leading character of the film and one of the “beaked denizens on an all-bird island paradise”. However, he’s also a “misfit” as his feather gets ruffled very easily. He will be joined by a pair of birds with similar anger-management issues. The yellow hyperactive speedy Chuck is voiced by “Frozen” star Josh Gad while the volatile Bomb is voiced by Danny McBride.
Together, the 3 misfits (Red, Chuck, and Boom) will fight against a group of green piggies that infiltrated their nest. The snouted intruders are led by their porcine representative, Leonard (voiced by Bill Hader).
A plethora of SNL cast members have joined the cast too, including Kate McKinnon, Keegan-Michael Key, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Cristela Alonzo, and Jillian Bell.
“Game of Thrones” actor Peter Dinklage will voice “The Mighty Eagle”, the most powerful bird in the Angry Birds universe while Maya Rudolph will voice Mother Hen of the flock, Mathilda. It was reported that Latin musician Romeo Santos and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Andrew Hecox and Anthony Padilla) also joined the voice cast of the film for unspecified roles.

“The Angry Birds Movie” is due to be released in Malaysia on 30th June 2016.
