Angry Birds: The Movie will finally be flinging its way to theaters next year. Read on for more details.
In union with this big screen adaptation of the popular video game, Entertainment Weekly rustled some feathers to make us aware on “Why are these birds so angry?”
When the game first made its nest as a touch-screen application, the little-known background was that these flock of enraged birds will crashed into just about anything to retrieve those stolen eggs from the green pigs dubbed as the “Oinks.”
The presented dispute will be the springboard of the movie narrative which is directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly with a screenplay from “The Simpsons” alumnus John Vitti. Kaytis, who has a long-stint as an animator (“Pocahontas,” “Wreck-It-Ralph”) and Reilly, a well-known storyboard artist (“Space Jam,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”). will both be having their directorial debut.
Kaytis was quoted in the said interview expressing their decision on why actor Jason Sudeikes (“Horrible Bosses 1 & 2”) was spot-on to play the killjoy bird character Red.
“We knew we had to find an actor who could say these things and still be -charming, and that was Jason,” Kaytis explained.
Joining Sudeikis on the impending war between birds and pigs are Josh Gad (“Pixels”) as Chuck, Danny McBride (“This Is The End”) as Bomb, Maya Rudolph (“Grown Ups 1 & 2”) as Matilda, Bill Hader (“Saturday Night Live”) as the Pig Leader Leonard, Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) as the Mighty Eagle. It will be an all-out battle as the birds will fight for their right against the looting pigs.
The 3D adaptation is produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder.
In related news, Finnish video-game developer Rovio Entertainment, the Finland-based video-game company responsible for the “Angry Birds” franchise as cited by The Verge, is having a limited character crossover that involves Sega’s iconic Sonic the Hedgehog in the updated rendition of “Angry Birds Epic.”
