Be the movie night hero and bring home the film that kids give two thumbs up to for the ultimate kid’s movie night! It’s time to express yourself! Sony Pictures Animation’s The Emoji Movie arrived for the first time on 4K Ultra HD+ Blu-ray + Digital, Blu-ray + Digital and DVD October 24th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The animated comedy unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris).
Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.
The Emoji Movie features an all-star voice cast including T.J. Miller as Gene Meh, James Corden as Hi-5, Anna Faris as Jailbreak, Maya Rudolph as Smiler, Steven Wright as Mel Meh, Jennifer Coolidge as Mary Meh, Jake T. Austin as phone owner Alex, Grammy Award Winner Christina Aguilera as Akiko Glitter, Emmy Award Nominee Sofia Vergara as Flamenca, Rachael Ray as Spam, Emmy Award Winner Sean Hayes as “Devil” Steven, and Emmy Award Nominee Sir Patrick Stewart as Poop.
