Angry Birds Movie 2: The Apocalypse Creates Strange Alliances in New Trailer

The Angry Birds Movie 2 teases how the apocalypse will forge strange alliances in an all-new trailer. Based on the popular puzzle video game by Rovio Entertainment, the sequel to the 2016 animated comedy brings back Red (Jason Sudeikis) and the other wingless creatures for another adventure.

The final trailer kicks off with sudden danger as a giant ball of ice comes crashing down from the sky. Referencing a key moment from Jaws, which also serves as a nod to the mobile gameplay, Leonard (Bill Hader) says, "We're going to need a bigger slingshot!" The angry birds and the green piggies will have to set aside their differences and team together against the third island, which just attacked them.

After witnessing the devastating catastrophe from the ice-filled attack, Red quickly deduces he will need to play hero in order to save Bird Island and Pig Island from being destroyed. Due to their competitive nature, Red and Leonard find themselves vying for the role of hero.

With the clock ticking, an unlikely group of misfits is formed to save the two islands from peril. On the bird's side, Red, Chuck (Josh Gad), Bomb (Danny McBride) and Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage) have added Chuck’s sister Silver (Rachel Bloom) to their lineup. Even with the help of Leonard and his assistant Courtney (Awkwafina), plus the gadgets from techpig Garry (Sterling K. Brown), do they have enough invisibility spray to save their home?
