First Look At Emojimovie: Express Yourself Features A Jaunty Poop

This image from the Emojimovie fills me with existential dread. The smile that looks coincidentally like Wyldstyle from the LEGO Movie. The bandage/bandanna on the high five. The bow-tied poo with raised eyebrows. The presence of T.J. Miller (Deadpool), James Corden (Into the Woods) and Ilana Glazer (Broad City) cannot remove that dread.

Corden is playing Hi-5, who was described by director Anthony Leondis as “a highly motivated, and highly dramatic hand on a mission (sorry)”. OK, first of all: A dramatic hand. Second of all, I feel like this might not be the only time Leondis apologises for something in this movie. Glazer’s character is a computer programmer emoji called “Jailbreak”. No word on who is voicing the poo.

Here’s Sony’s official synopsis for Emojimovie: Express Yourself:

Emojimovie: Express Yourself unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favourite 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 (Ilana Glazer). 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 “app-venture” hits screens in the US on 11 August 2017. An Australian release date has not yet been announced. Get ready.
