There may be a Falcon in Captain America: Civil War, but only one movie this summer features a whole flocking mess of personality.
The Angry Birds Movie (in theaters Friday), a big-screen animated take on the popular video-game app, sees a peaceful island of flightless birds have to go to slingshot war when a band of green pigs steal their eggs. The challenge for filmmakers: Take the little icons from the game and turn them into “fully realized comedic personalities,” says Fergal Reilly, one of the directors of Angry Birdsalongside Clay Kaytis. “It stands completely different from the game, but you can still see the DNA in the movie.”
Reilly gives USA TODAY a rundown on the fine feathered friends who audiences will meet on Bird Island:
