‘Angry Birds 2’ Cast Announced; Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad & Danny McBride Returning


Back in 2016, Columbia Pictures and Rovio Animation teamed up for the Sony Pictures release of >

The Angry Birds Movie

, a bit of a gamble on a massively popular mobile game property that was, at the time, untried as a feature film franchise-starter. After more than $350 million at the worldwide box office, it’s clear that the creative team behind the scenes made a good bet, and a sequel was soon announced. Now, with 

The Angry Birds Movie 2

still scheduled for a September 20, 2019 release, the full cast has been announced!

As Variety reports, returning performers include 

Jason Sudeikis as Red, 

Josh Gad as Chuck,

Bill Hader as Leonard,

Danny McBride as Bomb, and

Peter Dinklage as Mighty Eagle, while newcomers 

Rachel Bloom,

Sterling K. Brown,

Eugenio Derbez,

Zach Woods,


Lil Rel Howery,

Dove Cameron, and

Brooklynn Prince have all signed on, with 

Leslie Jones voicing of the film’s villain. (No word on 

Maya Rudolph at the moment, which is kind of a bummer.) The release date marks the game’s 10th anniversary, so you can expect The Angry Birds Movie 2 to be a big event for Sony & Co.

The sequel will be directed by twice Emmy-nominated 

Thurop Van Orman–director of The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and writer on such animated series as Adventure Time and The Powerpuff Girls–co-directed by

John Cohen with
