About The Angry Birds Movie
In the 3D animated comedy The Angry Birds Movie , we’ll finally find out why the birds are so angry.
The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We're the Millers, Horrible Bosses ), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen ), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This Is the End, Eastbound and Down) 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.
Featuring a hilarious, all-star voice cast that includes Maya Rudolph ( Bridesmaids, Sisters ), Bill Hader ( Trainwreck, Inside Out ), and Peter Dinklage ( Game of Thrones ), as well as Kate McKinnon ( Saturday Night Live, Ghostbusters ) , Sean Penn ( Milk, Mystic River ) , Tony Hale ( Veep, Arrested Development ), Keegan-Michael Key ( Key & Peele ) , Hannibal Buress ( Daddy’s Home, Broad City ) , Ike Barinholtz ( Neighbors, Sisters ), Tituss Burgess ( Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt ) , Jillian Bell ( 22 Jump Street ), Billy Eichner (“Billy on the Street”), Danielle Brooks ( Orange Is the New Black ), YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla), Latin music sensation Romeo Santos, and country music superstar Blake Shelton, who co-writes and performs the original song “Friends." The film also features brand new music from Demi Lovato, Charli XCX, Matoma, and Steve Aoki. The Columbia Pictures/Rovio Animation film is directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis and produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder.
