Patrick Stewart to voice poo emoji in The Emoji Movie
Patrick Stewart has joined the cast of The Emoji Movie and will voice the Poo emoji.
The new animated family adventure sees T. J. Miller, James Corden, Maya Rudolph, Rob Riggle, Jennifer Coolidge, Ilana Glazer and Steven Wright all lend their voice as well as Stewart.
The story is set in Textopolis, a bustling city hidden within all our smartphones, every emoji bides their time here, waiting to used by their user. Every emoji has just the one facial expression, except in one case, that’s Gene, who can do all sorts of faces, a situation he hates.
Determined to become “normal” Gene sets off on an adventure with his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak.
Corden will voice Hi-Five, a hand emoji, whiles Rudolph voices the smile symbol, Miller voices Gene and Glazer will power Jailbreak.
Tony Leondis, director of Igor, writes and directs this film, which is due in UK cinemas on August 4th.
