Angry Birds is one of the most rampant games of this time. The whole world can’t stop playing it. To leverage its popularity, the franchise is adapted into a film.
Angry Birds the movie is scheduled to release on May 20th, 2016. The movie takes place on Bird Island, an untouched paradise habited by birds who are naive and innocent, who know nothing of the outside world. They treasure eggs, and are all carefree and easygoing, except for few.
Red, the lead character of the film, had lost his temper quite a few times, had gone to court and had been sentenced to anger management courses, led by Matilda who has also had anger issues before but has turned it all into a hippie and zen-like lifestyle. Another angry bird is Chuck, who moves fast and talks fast. Bomb, another main character, frequently blows up due to his disorder IED, Intermittent Explosions Disorder. Bob lives in a bomb shelter.
The birds are visited by pigs, who are dumb but funny. The birds and pigs befriend each other and have a party, but Red does not trust the pigs at all.
The movie seems to have an attractive look, a talented cast (Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Peter Dinklage), and familiar characters. Angry Birds gamers would be eager to watch their favorite characters on silver screen. Whether it’s a hit or miss, only time will tell.
Meanwhile the movie comes, watch the trailer.
