The Angry Birds movie. Mull over that for a minute. There will be a feature film starring Angry Birds. Rovio has announced the primary cast and director for their upcoming movie based on their mobile game series. I assumed this had already been done with Rio 2, but apparently there’s more gold to mine from these hills.
Good news for fans of Peter Dinklage’s deadpan delivery in Destiny! The actor behind everyone’s favorite exposition machine will be in this as well as Jason Sudeikis, Danny McBride, and Maya Rudolph. Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis will direct. Kaytis was previously an animation supervisor at Disney on Tangled and Bolt. Reilly worked as a story artist on The Iron Giant and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.
The Angry Birds movie will hit theaters on July 1st of 2016.
