The Angry Birds Movie may have had your eyes rolling when it was first announced, and the first few glimpses may not have done much to alleviate any concerns, but the new trailer lays out the story pretty well (and has slingshots!).
We finally get the full lay of the egg-stealing Pig, sling-shotted Bird land, and though the trying to make silk from sow’s ear realm of video game adaptations has had a questionable showing historically, recent efforts suggest that people are trying to take the idea a bit more seriously.
There are even hints that there may be some interesting levels to this one, and not because Red (Jason Sudeikis) is a social outcast. There’s also the potential for some good work along “banding together” angles, and there’s probably something interesting going on when it comes to figuring out the slingshot theory.
You’re going to want to catch this one, and this longer trailer is a treat.
