Catch The Angry Birds and Piggies’ Team-Up in Theaters!

The rivalry of the Angry Birds and Piggies must be set aside in this new story hatched for 'The Angry Birds Movie 2,' now showing in theaters!

Frenemy.

It’s an evocative word indicating a person with whom one is friendly despite a fundamental dislike or rivalry. And it’s a perfectly succinct description of the idea hatched by the filmmakers to bring the world of Angry Birds to a new level, in Columbia Pictures’ new adventure comedy The Angry Birds Movie 2.

(Watch the film’s “Heist” featurette below.)

“We started with that idea, knowing there’d be so much comedy and conflict to be mined from the two enemy factions – the birds and pigs – being forced to work together,” producer John Cohen explains. “That would lead to trust issues, clashes of egos, a lot of friction, and more character-based comedy. We wanted to surprise audiences with a new energy and comedy ‘motor.’”

Cohen further characterizes the new film as a “mission movie” about a core team of characters coming together to pull off a daunting task, which in turn, says Cohen, provides “opportunities for action and adventure different from what audiences experienced in the first film.”


Bringing a fresh take on the characters and their mission is director Thurop Van Orman, making his big-screen directorial debut after helming the popular Cartoon Network series The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and Adventure Time with Finn & Jake. Says Van Orman: “With The Angry Birds Movie 2, I was always looking to maximize the visual humor, which translates to every age, region and background.”

Now playing in Philippine cinemas, The Angry Birds Movie 2 is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.  Use the hashtag #AngryBirdsMovie2
