On Saturday, August 11, Sony premiered THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE 2 in Los Angeles, and Cinemark was there to fly through the red carpet!
Thurop Van Orman — who made the hit Cartoon Network series "The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack," directs this sequel, which tells a wholly original story in which birds and piggies team up to battle a new threat to both animal kingdoms. There are new characters and ideas that the Rovio video game never got to explore. Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Bill Hader and Peter Dinklage reprise their roles from the original film, while Leslie Jones, Rachel Bloom, Awkwafina, Sterling K. Brown, and Eugenio Derbez join as new characters.
Check out our experience at the event:
"This is my first time doing an original voice in English," said actor Eugenio Derbez, who also just appeared in DORA AND THE LOST CITY OF GOLD. The actor has frequently dubbed other animated characters into Spanish for release outside the United States. (If you've seen the Spanish-language dubs of SHREK or THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS, for example, you've heard Derbez as Donkey and Snowball.)
Production designer Pete Oswald enthused, "the best part about making film is that there's so much work up to this [point] and then people get to experience it — and you get to hear audiences, kids and adults, laugh and appreciate your film."
