Possibly to remind us that this is a thing that is indeed happening, the first trailer for The Emoji Movie is here.
Decide for yourself below if it’s worth a happy face or a sad face.
The Sony Pictures Animation centres around the friendly Gene, voiced by Deadpool‘s TJ Miller, who just can’t stick to a single expression like his fellow emoji.
So, with the help of best buddy Hi-5 (James Corden) and hacker Jailbreak (Anna Faris), he leaves Emoji Valley and sets off on a journey to become a “normal” emoji with only one facial expression.
His journey will see Gene travel through real-life apps, such as Spotify, on his quest to become normal. What’s the betting he’ll work out at the end that it’s okay to be different?
The first teaser for The Emoji Movie was released in December and saw the Meh emoji (Steven Wright) trying hard to hide his excitement at the film coming out.
It also gave us a first look at the Poop emoji, which is genuinely being voiced by the legend that is Sir Patrick Stewart.
The Emoji Movie is directed by Igor‘s Anthony Leondis, who has also worked on the likes of The Prince of Egypt, The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride and short animation Kung Fu Panda: Secrets of the Masters.
It rolls out into US cinemas on July 28 and UK cinemas on August 4.
