Emojis are part of our everyday life, so it was only a matter of time before someone made a film about them! The Emoji Movie hits cinemas on 4 August and we can’t wait! Here’s 7 reasons why…
1. You’ll love Gene!
Gene is an emoji who can make all sorts of faces but wants to be a normal ‘meh’ emoji like his parents
2. Christina Aguilera is the voice of a dancer!
Popstar Christina is the voice of Akiko Glitter who lives inside a dancing app. ‘She lives the way I would love to express myself all the time,’ said Christina.
3. James Corden is the talking hand!
The Carpool Karaoke expert is the voice of Gene’s best friend, a hand emoji called Hi-5
4. Even Candy Crush appears in the film!
In the film the characters go through the game’s sugary world! Hi-5 makes the most of his visit! Nom nom nom.
5. There’s even the Poop emoji!!
The voice of Poop is legendary actor Sir Patrick Stewart, who was Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men movies. He said ‘I’m honoured to be playing the role of the emoji Poop ‘ he said in his very posh actor voice!
6. It’s in 3-D!
Any film where you have to wear 3-D glasses gets a thumbs up from us. Even from those of us who have to wear normal glasses at the same time!
