Where the first “Angry Birds” movie sees Red (Jason Sudeikis) and his fellow fowl protect their island against invading green pigs, “The Angry Birds Movie 2” finds the two warring sides calling a truce to work together against a common foe. An eagle named Zeta (Leslie Jones) who lives on Eagle Island has concocted an evil plan to literally freeze out both Piggy Island and Bird Island to take both for herself. From inside her frozen lair, she engineers a super-cannon that shoots ice balls powerful enough to destroy anything in their path. It’s up to Red and his friends to stop her.
“The Angry Birds Movie 2” brings back many voice talents from the first film, including Josh Gad as Chuck, Danny McBride as Bomb, and Bill Hader as King Leonard Mudbeard. There are a number of new additions to the cast too, such as Rachel Bloom as Silver, Awkwafina as Courtney, Tiffany Haddish as Debbie, and Sterling K. Brown as Garry. The star-studded cast of “The Angry Birds Movie 2” is a huge part of the movie’s appeal, but its laughs manage to top even that glittering roster’s appeal. Animated comedy fans should definitely check it out now on Netflix.
