The Emoji Movie Fills Out Voice Cast With Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Coolidge And More

Throughout his decorated career, Sir Patrick Stewart has amassed a collection of truly memorable roles. We’ve had the great Professor X – a role that Stewart will soon reprise for James Mangold’s LoganStar Trek‘s Jean-Luc Picard and, more recently, Darcy Banker, the neo-Nazi skinhead seen in Jeremy Saulnier’s excellent Green Room. But in 2017, Stewart will lend his voice to Sony’s Emoji Movie.

He’ll play Poop – no, really – and we understand that Stewart has climbed on board alongside a whole host of newcomers including Jennifer Coolidge, Bridesmaids alum Maya Rudolph as Smiler, and Jake T. Austin as the human character of Sony’s twee animation. Anthony Leondis is at the helm for The Emoji Movie, which largely centers around Gene (Deadpool’s T.J. Miller), a sprightly symbol who has essentially been rendered the outcast of Textopolis after displaying more than one emotion. In order to course-correct his internal code,

Character Posters For The Emoji Movie Tease The Many Faces Of Sony’s Animation

When Sony Pictures Animation first drafted up plans for The Emoji Movie, the Internet was suitably perplexed. How could an audience expect to care about a host of digital characters that are, by definition, one-note personifications of an emotion, or a symbol, or, you know, poop?

To be fair, similar questions were raised in anticipation of The Lego Movie and this year’s Trolls, and Sony has crafted something of a workaround in Gene (T.J. Miller), a symbol whose ability to express more than one emotion renders him the outcast of Textopolis, a bustling digital utopia in which much of Anthony Leondis’ animation is set to take place. Think Zootopia, only overrun by sprightly pixels as opposed to an entire animal kingdom. And so, what follows is an “app-venture” like no other, after Gene is left with little choice but to buddy up with Hi-5 (James Corden) and a stealthy

The Emoji Movie Teaser Trailer Introduces Meh

Chances are, when you heard that Sony Pictures Animation was making The Emoji Movie, you assumed that it would be a shameless marketing strategy for various mobile phone applications. While the first teaser trailer doesn’t exactly confirm this, it does nothing to dispel that expectation, either.

Written and directed by Anthony Leondis (Igor), and co-written by Eric Siegel (Men At Work), The Emoji Movie promises an adventurous ride through your favourite digital landscapes – but whether the finished product will deliver on that promise is not clear from this promotional footage.

For more on what to expect, you can consult the official plot summary below:

The Emoji Movie 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

‘Silicon Valley’ Star T.J. Miller Joins Emoji Movie Voice Cast

‘Silicon Valley’ Star T.J. Miller Joins Emoji Movie Voice Cast
In celebration of World Emoji Day (yes, there’s a World Emoji Day), Sony made a big announcement regarding its emoji movie (yes, there’s an emoji movie).

T.J. Miller will lend his voice to “EmojiMovie: Express Yourself” in a leading role, Sony Animation revealed on Sunday.

Miller will play Gene, who was supposed to be a “meh” emoji like his parents. However, the optimistic character has a glitch that causes him to have multiple expressions outside of his control. Of course, he wants to be normal, but will his “glitch” end up being a gift?

The studio also released a video of Miller’s “audition” for the film. The joke clip shows Miller trying to imitate several popular emojis (Kissy face! Fried shrimp!), and Miller comments on how great it is that there’s going to be a live-action emoji movie. He’s informed, however, that it’s actually

Sony Pushes Animation Slate With Hotel Transylvania 3 Update

Sony Animation is pulling out all the stops to boost its output for 2017 and 2018, and the result is some fairly wide-ranging news regarding both the television and film side of the operation. With its animated Spider-Man feature already moving full-speed ahead – with Phil Lord and Chris Miller on board – and television series of both Ghostbusters and Cloudy With a Chance Of Meatballs in development, the biggest titles currently under discussion are Hotel Transylvania 3, that film’s overall franchise, and EmojiMovie: Express Yourself.

The Hotel Transylvania franchise

Recently, Sony announced that the director of the first two instalments of the highly successful franchise – Genndy Tartakovsky – had opted not to return for the third movie. This was widely acknowledged to be the result of his return to the Samurai Jack fold, since he was that show’s creator, and he just headed up a brand new season. However, having performed a rather nifty about-face,
