Angry Birds: The Movie Voice Cast Announced: Feature-Length Film Features Frozen, SNL, Game Of Thrones Actors
Angry Birds, the multi-billion dollar franchise where you throw fat, globular birds at pig-manned battlements of all stripes, is unsurprisingly getting a movie. Who's a bird and who's a pig? Read on!
It takes a certain level of experience and intimate knowledge of the craft for a thespian to really get to the heart of characters such as Red, the Blues, Chuck, Bomb and Matilda. Who would dare undertake such a quest? Fear no more, for we have the answers, courtesy of Empire Magazine!
The volatile Red - a modern day Holden Caulfield, some say - will be voiced by Jason Sudeikis. The mercurial Chuck will be played by Josh Gad, he of Frozen fame, lover of summer despite his snowman's appearance. Danny McBride will take on the role of Bomb, an explosively temperamental bird.
The porcine Bill Hader will be playing a pig, whereas it is upon Maya Rudolph to portray Matilda. Reserving the big guns of acting for the actual in-game big guns, Game Of Thrones' Peter Dinklage will be voicing the Mighty Eagle. Will he only have one scene in the movie, as per the games?
Angry Birds: The Movie is scheduled to hit theaters July 1, 2016. The script is by The Simpsons' Jon Vitti, while directing duties are on animation veterans Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis in their feature film debut.
