The Angry Birds Movie 2 (or simply Angry Birds 2) is an upcoming 3D computer-animated action comedy film produced by Rovio Animation. The sequel to the 2016 film The Angry Birds Movie, it is scheduled for release on August 16, 2019 by Columbia Pictures through its parent company Sony Pictures Releasing.

Premise[edit]

The Angry Birds embark on a new adventure,[2] while King Mudbeard, ruler of the Bad Piggies, and another villain[3] plot revenge against them after they devastated his homeland in a battle to reclaim their eggs.[N 1]

Cast[edit]

Rachel Bloom, Sterling K. Brown, Eugenio Derbez, Zach Woods, Awkwafina, Lil Rel Howery, Dove Cameron, Beck Bennett, and Nicki Minaj have been cast in undisclosed roles.

Production[edit]

A sequel to The Angry Birds Movie was announced in August 2016.[5] It will be directed by Thurop Van Orman, co-directed by John Rice, and written by Peter Ackerman. John Cohen will return from The Angry Birds Movie to serve as producer, with animation again handled by Sony Pictures Imageworks.[6] Sony Pictures Animation was originally going to co-produce the film, but has since dropped out of the project.[7]

In the summer of 2017, production designer Pete Oswald stated that the sequel would be more of an adventure movie that introduces new characters and locations into the world established in The Angry Birds Movie. While he was not in a position to offer further details about the plot and characters, which remain unknown even in the months leading to the sequel's release, he expressed hope that it would be a better film than the first installment.[2]

In April 2018, the majority of the voice cast was announced. Sudeikis, Gad, McBride, Hader, and Dinklage will reprise their roles from the first film. Jones will voice a new female villain.[3][8] In December 2018, Nicki Minaj joined the cast of the film.[9]

Release[edit]

The film is scheduled to be released on August 16, 2019, to mark the 10th anniversary of the release of the original Angry Birds game. The film was originally scheduled to be released on September 20, 2019, but was moved ahead twice to September 6, 2019, and then August 16, 2019.[10][11][12]
