Licensing Expo 2015 is kicking off this week, and one of the more anticipated movies that will be showing off its toys and merchandise is Angry Birds. While we'll have to wait and see what Sony and Rovio Entertainment roll out as part of the Angry Birds consumer product line, we do get the first character poster for the movie, courtesy of LicenseMag. It features Bomb, who will be voiced by the great Danny McBride.
Angry Birds is based on the extremely popular Angry Birds series of video games and will hit theaters summer 2016. The computer-animated adventure will be released in 3D, with John Cohen producing alongside executive producer David Maisel. Rovio Entertainment, makers of the game, will produce and finance, with Jon Vitti writing the screenplay. Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly are directing.
Danny McBride's Bomb is joined by Jason Sudeikis as Red and Josh Gad as Chuck, who make up the main trio in the movie. Also voicing roles are Bill Hader as Bad Piggies, Maya Rudolph as Matilda and Peter Dinklage as Mighty Eagle. We have no idea when we'll get to see the trailer for this 2016 release. While we wait, enjoy Bomb in a much milder moment, before he blows his top!
