“Over six billion emojis are texted every day, and emojis have become a universal language that transcends age and culture. The power of emojis is that they allow you to express yourself in a fast and very fun way, and that is what our movie is about: self expression. We are very lucky to have some of the smartest and funniest actors today bringing their unique voices to this movie.”
Okay. We have reached our peak as a society.
1941 had Citizen Kane, 1951 had A Streetcar Named Desire, 1965 had The Sound of Music, 1972 had The Godfather, in 2017….we will have The Emoji Movie.
More than half of the movies above had Marlon Brando; love him.
Though the name may not have as much zazz, be thankful as its previous title was Emojimovie: Express Yourself.
The star power behind The Emoji Movie include James Corden, who you may know as the guy who records himself singing in his car with celebrities, Ilana Glazer, co-star of Broad City, and TJ Miller from Silicon Valley and Deadpool.
Hemling the project will be Anthony Leondis, who brought us Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch and Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters; yeah, I don’t know either.
In a Sony press release, Leondis gave a brief synopsis on the film’s three main emojis:
“Hi-5 is a high-five emoji who is a highly motivated, and highly dramatic, hand on a mission (sorry), and the brilliantly versatile, ebullient and always lovable James Corden fits this part like a glove (sorry again). For the rebel ‘break all the codes’ computer programmer emoji Jailbreak, Ilana Glazer is the kind of singularly free-spirited, fearless and funny actress to make girls really feel the empowered ‘nobody’s gonna keep me in a cage’ attitude this character exudes. And, of course, T.J. Miller has proven himself to be one of the most genuinely inventive comedic actors around, uniquely capable of connecting and who can convey just about any expression-and often does!”
Opinions will be (and have been) had in regards to The Emoji Movie‘s existence, and that’s for the comment section. For now, take a look at the beauty that will grace your silver screens on August 4th of next year.
Wait…..Just Dance has an app?
