The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your
smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city
where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone’s
user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for
Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is
bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal” like the
other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 (James
Corden) and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris).
Together, they embark on an epic “app-venture” through the apps on the
phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix
Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis
depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before
it’s deleted forever.
