“The Emoji Movie” Opening Scene Online

Ahead of the film’s release on July 28th, Sony Pictures Animation has brought the full opening sequence for “The Emoji Movie” online.

The film is set in Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by a 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.

Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris) to find the code that will give Gene one expression.

The cast also includes Steven Wright as Mel Meh, Maya Rudolph as Smiler, Jennifer Coolidge as Mary Meh, Jake T. Austin as Alex and Sir Patrick Stewart as the Poop Emoji.
