Sony has let loose a new scene from upcoming summer comedy The Angry Birds Movie 2 — just as it literally launched the sequel with an oversized bird-flinging slingshot off the Carlton Hotel pier in Cannes ahead of the big film fest. (You can see a pic on Deadline’s site.) The sequel arrives in theaters August 14.
Synopsis: The flightless angry birds and the scheming green piggies take their beef to the next level in The Angry Birds Movie 2! When a new threat emerges that puts both Bird and Pig Island in danger, Red (Jason Sudeikis), Chuck (Josh Gad), Bomb (Danny McBride), and Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage) recruit Chuck’s sister Silver (Rachel Bloom) and team up with pigs Leonard (Bill Hader), his assistant Courtney (Awkwafina), and techpig Garry (Sterling K. Brown) to forge an unsteady truce and form an unlikely superteam to save their homes.
Director Thurop Van Orman, producer John Cohen and voice star Josh Gad (Chuck) attended the Cannes “launch party”, as did international voicers Sergey Buruov (Leonard; Russia), Enzo Knol and Irma Knol (Chuk, Bomb’s Mom; Holland) and Sonia Plakidyuk (Fuschia, Ukraine)
