They join returning actors Jason Sudeikis as the temperamental Red; Josh Gad as speedy Chuck; Bill Hader as Leonard, king of the pigs; Danny McBride as the volatile Bomb; and Peter Dinklage as the stentorian voice of the legendary Mighty Eagle.
The sequel is directed by Thurop Van Orman, with co-director John Rice co-directing. Peter Ackerman, whose credits range from 2002’s Ice Age to FX’s Cold War thriller The Americans, is writing the screenplay. David Maisel and Catherine Winder are executive producers.
