The Emoji Movie is an upcoming 2017 American 3D computer-animated buddy adventure comedy film written and directed by Tony Leondis and co-written by Eric Siegel and Mike White. It will star the voices of T.J. Miller, Anna Faris, James Corden, Patrick Stewart, Maya Rudolph, Steven Wright, Rob Riggle, Jennifer Coolidge, Jake T. Austin, Sofia Vergara, and Christina Aguilera. Produced by Sony Pictures Animation, the film is scheduled to be released on July 28, 2017, by Columbia Pictures.
The film centers on Gene, a multi-expressional emoji who lives in a phone when he sets out on a journey to become a normal mehemoji like his parents after causing a misconception emoji.

On July 21, 2015, it was announced that Sony Pictures Animation had won the bidding war against Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures over production rights of an animated film centered on emoji, based on a script by Eric Siegel and Tony Leondis, with Leondis also directing the film. Michelle Raimo Kouyate would produce the film. At 2016 CinemaCon, the film was officially announced and it was revealed that it would be set in the digital world in a smartphone.
In July 2016, Miller was announced as the lead Emoji Gene in a tweet by Sony Pictures Animation on World Emoji Day. In October 2016, it was announced that Ilana Glazer and Corden will be joining the cast as well. In December 2016, the film's title was renamed from Emojimovie: Express Yourself, to simply The Emoji Movie. Glazer was later replaced by Anna Faris.
On December 20, 2016, a teaser trailer for the film was released. A second trailer was later released on May 16, 2017.
In November 2015, Sony scheduled the film to be released on August 11, 2017. A year later, it was moved to August 4, 2017, with Baby Driver taking its date. In late March 2017, the film moved one week earlier to July 28, 2017, switching places with Sony Pictures' The Dark Tower.
The film will be shown alongside Puppy, which is a short film directed by Genndy Tartakovsky based on the Hotel Transylvania films.
