After almost a year of teasing, the trailer for The Emoji Movie is here!

It was announced last year that Sony Pictures had won a bidding war for the rights to make a movie out everyone’s favorite non-verbal tools, with comedian T. J. Miller cast in the film.

So which emojis are they going to make a film about?

The first sneak peek trailer has just been released and we've got a small idea!

Desipte the first trailer being simple, we can already see the movie will be hilarious as the producers bring our human emotions to life using our favourite emojis.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the plot of the film will follow Gene (played by T.J. Miller), an emoji who has too many expressions. Set in the world of Textopolis, Gene’s characteristics don’t quite fit in with the rigid mindset that emojis can only have one function.

According to Sony Pictures, the movie will feature a host of apps that we’re all familiar with, including Candy Crush Saga, Dropbox, Instagram, Spotify, Twitter, and YouTube.

The movie is set for release August 4 2017.
