News sources coming in indicate that Sony’s “The Emoji Movie” will take place enirely inside a smartphone.
Sony Pictures Animation president Kristine Belson while speaking during last night’s CinemaCon presentation offered the first concrete details on the movie asking if we know that inside our phones there’s a secret world.
She asked the crowd before explaining that the movie will apparently take place inside an actual smartphone, with the emoji themselves serving as characters living in “Emoji Valley.”
A smartphone’s home screen are all given physical counterparts in the world of the movie, with Belson mentioning that the studio has partnered with several major app developers for inclusion in the film, though no partners were named during last night’s presentation.
