Sony Animation have released a new teaser for the upcoming film, “The Emoji Movie. In the teaser, emoji Mel Meh (Steven Wright) introduces himself and the movie that will be seen. Then, the teaser shows off a conversation between an ice cream emoji and a cookie one, then being interrupted by a poop emoji.

Here is the official synopsis: “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 (Ilana Glazer). 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.

The film is written by Tony LeondisEric Siegel, and Mike White, and directed by Leondis. Michelle Raimo Kouyate produces the film. “The Emoji Movie” comes out on August 4, 2017.
