The Angry Birds Movie 2 is coming this summer!

2016 predecessor The Angry Birds Movie may not have troubled the Oscars, but, with the film having grossed $352 million globally at the box office, we can’t imagine there’s too much disappointment. Moments of the film itself – which adapts Rovio’s global phenomenon of an app game – spark into a bit of life, which made the news that Sony Pictures Animation was working on a sequel not exactly surprising.

However, The Angry Birds Movie 2 will arrive under the purview of a first-time feature director in Thurop Van Orman, a writer from Adventure Time and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. He worked off a script by Peter Ackerman (Ice Age, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs), who also – in a major genre detour – wrote and co-executive-produced episodes of FX cold war drama The Americans. The previous film was directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly.

The flightless angry birds and the scheming green piggies take their beef to the next level in The Angry Birds Movie 2! When a new threat emerges that puts both Bird and Pig Island in danger, Red (Jason Sudeikis), Chuck (Josh Gad), Bomb (Danny McBride), and Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage) recruit Chuck’s sister Silver (Rachel Bloom) and team up with pigs Leonard (Bill Hader), his assistant Courtney (Awkwafina), and techpig Garry (Sterling K. Brown) to forge an unsteady truce and form an unlikely superteam to save their homes.

Franchise newcomer voicers include Rachel Bloom, Sterling K. Brown, Eugenio Derbez, Zach Woods, Awkwafina, Lil Rel Howery, Brooklynn Prince and Dove Cameron. Leslie Jones, meanwhile, will be voicing the villain.
