A release for the upcoming Angry Birds
flick has been narrowed to July 1, 2016, with Sony distributing the movie worldwide, Rovio announced on its website today.
Rovio's intent on creating a feature film was made public
late last year, when the studio tapped producers John Cohen and David Maisel from Despicable Me
and Iron Man
to lead the project. The Angry Birds
movie is unique in that it's being completely done in-house – Rovio is funding and producing the film entirely on its own.
