Storyline

This 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 expression, except for Gene, an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak. Together, they embark on an epic "app-venture" through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it's deleted forever.

Did You Know?

Trivia

As the phone began deleting, Poop shouted "Red alert". This is an obvious nod to Patrick Stewart's role as Captain Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987) and his frequent saying "red alert" when there is an emergency. See more »

Goofs

Jailbreak uses her Princess powers to summon the Twitter logo to be able to fly herself and High Five to Gene's location and rescue him. Why didn't she summon the logo earlier? It would have been far more convenient for them instead of walking through the numerous dangerous apps while being chased by Anti-Virus bots. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Gene: [narrating] The world we live in. It's so wondrous, mysterious, even magical. No. No, no, not that world. I meant this one: the smartphone. Each system and program and app is its own little planet of perfect technology. All providing services so necessary, so crucial, so unbelievably profound.

Crazy Credits

End credits are depicted as text bubbles, with an appropriate emoji for each position, i.e. a camera for the director and monkeys for the writers. See more »

Alternate Versions

For its UK release, Sony had to remove some mild language in order to receive an U rating instead of a PG - this included a visual use of "WTF" (considered 'disguised strong language' and worthy of a 12A) and a verbal use of "turd". See more »
