Emojimovie: Express Yourself is the former version of Sony Pictures Animation 2017's The Emoji Movie. It was going to be directed by Anthony Leondis. And was going to have a sort of different cast, with different voices/members.


Plot[]

The plot is the same like the 2017 film.

Cast[]

  • T.J Miller as Gene.
  • James Corden as Hi-5.
  • Ilana Glazer (now Anna Faris) as Jailbreak.
  • Jordan Peele (now Patrick Stewart) as Poop.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. Jordan Peele was asked to voice Poop; he refused, and he has cited this offer as the reason he decided to start a directorial career, starting with Get Out. The role was instead later given to Patrick Stewart.
  2. Ilana Glazer was originally cast for the role of Jailbreak, but for unknown reasons, she was replaced by Anna Faris.
  3. The director and the writers were not impressed with the first title.

Results[]

  • The Emoji Movie was finally released in theaters on July 28, 2017 and received negative reviews due to script, characters, humor, and product placement.
  • The original version of The Emoji Movie was permanently cancelled.
