Sir Patrick Stewart has joined Sony Pictures Animation‘s The Emoji Movie.
In The Emoji Movie, “Gene (T.J. Miller), an emoji born with multiple expressions… teams up with the notorious code-breaker Jailbreak (Ilana Glazer) on an adventure through a teenager’s phone.”
Stewart will take on the role of Poop.
Others voicing characters include Jennifer Coolidge, May Rudolph, Alex, James Corden, Steven Wright, and Rob Riggle.
“I know what you’re thinking — WTF,” said Director Tony Leondis. “What is their story? Emoji are expected to be one thing their whole lives. So I thought, what if one was born with not one, but lots of expressions…and how would that affect the status quo? Everyone has felt different — it’s everyone’s story.”
The Emoji Movie will debut August 4. Hopefully it won’t be a pile of…well, you know what!
