A couple of years ago, Rovio announced that an Angry Birds movie would be developed, and just last year we were treated to the movie’s first official teaser trailer. Now for those who want a more in-depth look at the movie, you’re in luck as the official theatrical trailer has since been released.
According to the movie’s description, “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.”
Now had the movie been launched a couple of years ago, we reckon it might be quite a huge hit. However considering that the Angry Birds franchise is definitely not what it used to be compared to back in the day, we have to wonder how the movie will fare. It is expected to be launched this May and as you can see in the description above, will feature a fair amount of comedic talent.
Perhaps it might surprise us all and be a good and entertaining flick, but we guess we’ll just have to wait and see (although it does look promising). In the meantime you can watch the trailer above to judge for yourself.
