The first official trailer has been released for The Angry Birds Movie, the upcoming 3D animated comedy film based on the popular Angry Birds video game franchise. The new movie, directed by Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly, will feature an all-star voice cast that includes Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Peter Dinklage, Keegan-Michael Key, Kate McKinnon, and more. We will finally find out why the birds are so angry when the animated film releases in theaters on May 20th, 2016.
The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis, We’re the Millers, Horrible Bosses), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad in his first animated role since Frozen), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride, This is the End, Eastbound and Down) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.
