They’re back! Yes, if you didn’t get enough Angry Birds in their first movie, you’re in for a whole new helping of feathered friend and piggy action in The Angry Birds Movie 2.
While some animated films really cater for adults and kids, the first Angry Birds flick really aimed more squarely at the younger demographic. While we were a bit restless, the five-year-old that we had in tow at the time was transfixed – these people know their audience.
So, he’s excited for this one, which will see the birds – gasp – having to cooperate with the pigs against a new foe, as both Bird Island and Pig Island are under threat from the inhabitants of a previously uncharted isle. Well, uncharted to the birds and pigs, at any rate.
Cast-wise, it’s hard not to be impressed, as the movie features the voices of Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Leslie Jones, Bill Hader, Rachel Bloom, Awkwafina, Sterling K. Brown, Eugenio Derbez, Danny McBride, Peter Dinklage, Zach Woods, Pete Davidson, Dove Cameron, Lil Rel Howery, Beck Bennett, Nicki Minaj and Brooklynn Prince.
The Angry Birds Movie 2 is set to cause a flap in Australian cinemas from September 12.
