The movie is now playing in theaters!
The Angry Birds Movie is a 2016 American 3D CGI-animated action-adventure comedy movie adaptation on the Angry Birds series of video games and is scheduled for release in theaters in 3D & REAL D 3D May 20th, 2016. The film will be presented by Columbia Pictures and Rovio Animation, CGI-animated at Sony Pictures Imageworks, and financed by Rovio Entertainment. In Finland (Where Angry Birds was originally created), it was distributed by Sony Pictures.
The movie takes place on Bird Island, an untouched paradise inhabited by birds who are naive and innocent, who know nothing of the outside world. They treasure eggs above all else, and are all carefree and easygoing, except for few.
One of these birds is Red, a societal outcast who has had anger issues from the very beginning. Eventually, his outbursts become too much and he is sentenced to anger management courses, where he meets other misfit birds with similar problems.
The birds are suddenly visited by green pigs, who are dumb but funny. The birds and pigs quickly befriend each other, but Red does not trust the pigs at all. Ultimately, the pigs reveal their true colors, and leads to Red leading the entire flock in a "maddening" frenzy of rightful revenge as well as finding the right means of dealing with rage.

- When the birds are launched from the slingshot, they tuck their legs under their wings, which gives their appearances a spot-on match to their game counterparts.
- It appears the direct source of Red's anger and solitude was back in his early childhood:
He was always made fun of because of his abnormally large eyebrows, giving him the nickname "Eye Brows" (from the official theractical trailer).
- In the games, Matilda drops explosive eggs while flying; but in this movie, she expels egg-shaped fireballs that explode on impact.
- This marks the first appearance of Leonard.
- All the birds except Bomb and Hal have their Toons designs, also Bomb is shown to have a tail in the movie.
- In the film, Mighty Eagle can fly with his whimsical wings.
- Although it has a rotten rating, The Angry Birds Movie is the highest rated video game movie on Rotten Tomatoes.
