Sir Patrick Stewart To Voice Poop Emoji In 'The Emoji Movie'

 

Patrick Stewart will be joining Sony Pictures Animation’s ‘The Emoji Movie’ as the voice of the poop emoji, simply named Poop. 

The studio revealed the casting via Twitter alongside an image of Stewart’s character, rightfully polished with a fancy bow-tie.

The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone's user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression - except for Gene (voiced by T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak. Together, they embark on an epic "app-venture" through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it's deleted forever.

In addition to bringing on Sir Patrick Stewart as Poop, Sony also announced new voice talents including Jennifer Coolidge as Mary Meh, Saturday Night Live’s Maya Rudolph as Smiler, and Jake T. Austin as Emoji's resident teen, Alex. The join previously announced cast members Steven Wright, James Corden, and Rob Riggle.

Co-written and directed by Tony Leondis (‘Igor’), ‘The Emoji Movie’ is set to hit theaters nationwide on August 4, 2017. You can check out the teaser below:
