‘Angry Birds’ will celebrate its 10th anniversary with another movie

by John_A

How will you celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of Finland’s biggest exports? No, I’m not talking about electrical machinery or oil — I mean Angry Birds. Well, Columbia Pictures and Sony are doing so with a sequel to the furious fowl’s silver screen debut, aptly titled The Angry Birds Movie 2. A Rovio blog post details that the film will be released September 20th, 2019 and that Thurop Van Orman and John Rice will serve as director and co-director, respectively. Maybe the production team can come up with a better title in two years’ time.

While those names might not be familiar, what they’ve worked on prior should be. Orman has a credit on Adventure Time and Rice has storyboarding for and animation on Rick and Morty and The Simpsons on his resume. Voice actors haven’t been confirmed, but it’s a pretty good bet that the original cast (Peter Dinklage, Maya Rudolph and Jason Sudekis, among others) will return for some family-friendly porcine genocide.

Why is this getting a sequel? Well, when the budget for the first was $73 million and it raked in $349,779,543 according to Box Office Mojo, a second installment was all but guaranteed — kind of like the inexplicable Now You See Me trilogy.
