'The Emoji Movie' Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Supplements Detailed (UPDATED)

Posted Thu Sep 14, 2017 at 10:26 AM PDT by

The animated comedy is up for pre-order at Amazon.

As previously reported, Sony is working on 'The Emoji Movie' for a Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray release later this year, and now the date has been set for October 24.

Take an adventure in 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. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression – except for Gene (T.J. Miller), who is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become “normal”, 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 (or “heroes”?) who must save their world before it’s deleted forever.
