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

In an early announcement to retailers, Sony is working on 'The Emoji Movie' for a Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray release later this year.

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.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.99 and the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray is $45.99.
