Rovio Entertainment’s fledgling feature The Angry Birds Movie is getting ready to leave the nest on May 20, 2016, and the first trailer is now out to show us just why these birds are so irate. The CG film is directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly from a screenplay by Jon Vitti.
The Angry Birds 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.
