Sony Pictures released today the first teaser for the upcoming sequel to 2016’s The Angry Birds Movie, based on the popular mobile game.
The newly released trailer for The Angry Birds Movie 2 introduces a new character, Zeta (voiced by Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones), a purple-feathered bird who lives in a frozen island and seems to be fed up with the cold weather. Zeta is said to be the movie’s villain who will confront both the flightless birds and pigs who live in more tropical climate.
Produced by Finnish game maker Rovio Entertainment and Columbia Pictures, The Angry Birds Movie 2 was directed by Thurop Van Orman (creator, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack), with John Rice (King of the Hill, Rick and Morty) serving as co-director. John Cohen, who produced the The Angry Birds Movie, returned as producer, while Peter Ackerman (FX’s The Americans, Ice Age) wrote the screenplay. Sony Pictures will distribute the sequel.
