THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE 2: Animated Sony Smash Hit To Get Sequel

The Angry Birds Movie

Rovio Entertainment announces that it is planning on making a sequel to The Angry Birds Movie. The video game company intends to produce a follow-up to the extraordinarily successful animated feature.

Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, Rovio Entertainment Chief Executive Kate Levoranta revealed that the company is interested in making another film based around the characters of their most popular property. It is unknown if Rovio will partner with Sony Pictures once again for the project, but the unexpected success of the first movie will likely lead to the two parties reuniting in the hope of recreating its successful formula for the next film:

In the movie, the main trio of Angry Birds featured Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, We’re the Millers) as Red, a bird with a temper, with Josh Gad (Frozen) as the speedy Chuck, and Danny McBride (This is the End, “Eastbound & Down”) voicing the volatile Bomb.

Supporting them were Bill Hader (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) as a pig, Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids) as Matilda, and Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”) as the Mighty Eagle. Also lending their voices to the video game adaptation were Keegan-Michael Key (“Key & Peele”), Kate McKinnon (“SNL”), Tony Hale (“Arrested Development”), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors), Hannibal Buress (“Broad City”), Cristela Alonzo (“Cristela”), Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street), Danielle Brooks (“Orange is the New Black”), singer Romeo Santos and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Andrew Hecox and Anthony Padilla).

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I’ve made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I’m not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school’s TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
