Well, this is for the birds, isn’t it? Yeah, I went there…
EW have revealed four imaged from the upcoming Angry Birds movie and you can see them right here.
Producer John Cohen says: “This is the origin story for how that conflict came to exist between birds and little green piggies.”
Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) is one of a community of beaked denizens on an all-bird island paradise, but what separates him from his chirpy chums is how easily his feathers get ruffled. “He’s a curmudgeon,” says Clay Kaytis, who’s directing the film with Fergal Reilly. “We knew we had to find an actor who could say these things and still be charming, and that was Jason.” Red is joined by a pair of birds of a feather with similar anger-management issues: the hyperactive speed freak Chuck (Josh Gad) and the intermittently explosive Bomb (Danny McBride). It’s the job of these three misfits to fight back when their nests are infiltrated by snouted interlopers and their porcine spokesman, Leonard, voiced by Bill Hader.
The Angry Birds Movie come from Sony Pictures and Rovio Entertainment and arrives on May 20th, 2016.
