The Angry Birds Movie ... Yes it's really happening!

Finnish game developer Rovio and Sony Pictures Entertainment have teamed up for an Angry Birds 3D animated movie, featuring an all-star cast including Jason Sudeikis as Red, Josh Gad as Chuck, Danny McBride as Bomb and Maya Rudolph as Matilda.

Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) will also be lending his distinctive voice talents as the majestically-named 'The Mighty Eagle'. Bill Hader will voice the part of Leonard, a pig spokesman who must stand up for the Oinkers after they attempt to infiltrate the birds' nests.

Angry Birds began as an iOS game in December 2009 and, as of July 2015, has had more than 3 billion downloads, making it the most successful freemium game series of all time.

The Angry Birds Movie is due to be released (in 3D) on 13th May 2016.
