Sony Pictures Animation has premiered the new trailer for their animated comedy “The Emoji Movie”.
The story unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user.
In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become ‘normal’ like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer).
Together, they embark on an epic ‘app-venture’ through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.
The cast includes Steven Wright, Mel Meh, Maya Rudolph as Smiler, Jennifer Coolidge as Mary Meh, Jake T. Austin as Alex and Sir Patrick Stewart as the Poop Emoji. The film opens July 28th.
