The Angry Birds Movie – Season’s Greetings from the Hatchlings!
Yes I will admit it-we were part of the Angry Birds revolution from the first day it came out and were part of those families everywhere that were one of the 500 million people that had it downloaded on every electronic platform we owned.
And why wouldn’t we? It was game where no matter what your age, it was simple to learn, mastering took patience and some skill and let’s face it characters from the Angry Birds themselves to those lovable flying pigs made it infectious and endearing right from the start. And now, the Angry Birds are flying off our phones and tablets and right onto the big screen when next summer, Sony Pictures Entertainment brings the story of our beloved birds to life. 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 Bill Hader (Trainwreck, Inside Out), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids), and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), as well as Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live, next year’s Ghostbusters), Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development), Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project, Neighbors), Hannibal Buress (Broad City, Why? With Hannibal Buress), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Danielle Brooks (Orange is the New Black), Latin music sensation Romeo Santos, and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla), the Columbia Pictures/Rovio Entertainment film is directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis, produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder, screenplay by Jon Vitti, and executive produced by Mikael Hed and David Maisel.
And now just in time for the holidays, prepare yourself for cuteness overload and a dash of holiday cheer!
Meet the Hatchlings, the lovable baby birds from The Angry Birds Movie, who will probably become your newest obsession. In this exclusive video, the fuzzy little birds, voiced by a group of children, wish you happy holidays with a song that’s desperately trying to be “Deck the Halls,” but doesn’t quite get there.
