The Emoji Movie is an inside look into the world of Textopolis, the Emoji-filled city inside cell phones. The icons live hoping to be selected by the phone user in the messaging app.
In the upcoming film out later this month, the quirky characters live in the phone belonging to Alex, a teenage boy voiced by Jake T. Austin. All of the Emojis represent a certain expression, until Gene, voiced by TJ Miller, comes along and acts as an emotional shape shifter.
He has the ability to express every emotion, and his uniqueness throws a kink into the Textopolis world. So which characters star in this highly anticipated movie? We have your exclusive first look below.
Other characters include Smiler (Maya Rudolph), Hi-5 (James Corden), Jailbreak (Anna Faris), Flamenca (Sofia Vergara), Poop (Patrick Stewart) and Akiko Glitter (Christina Aguilera).
Each have their own distinct personality based on the emotion they depict and they all either try to help or hurt Gene while on his journey to self-expression.
The animated movie is sure to be a smart and funny approach to the world of texting, and the silly cast of characters may just be the cherry on top.
The Emoji Movie hits theaters everywhere on Friday, July 28.
