Hidden inside a smartphone, the bustling city of Textopolis is home to all emojis.
This is where they all live and wait to be called upon by their owners to say what mere words cannot.
Each emoji has only one facial expression, except for Gene, an exuberant emoji with multiple expressions.
This becomes a problem when his phone’s owner Alex, a 14-year-old boy reaches out to the girl he likes.
Gene coughs up so many expressions that it is impossible to understand what he is supposed to represent.
Fearing what could happen to everyone if one emoji seems to be malfunctioning, Smiler, the grinning leader of Textopolis, decides to have Gene wiped out for good.
Determined to become normal like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his best friend Hi-5, and a notorious code breaker called Jailbreak. During their travels through the other apps, the three emojis discover a great danger that could threaten their phone's very existence.
There is a warning from Australian Classification some scenes may scare very young children. Millennials will probably spend most of the time trying to see how many emojis they have used and if there are any they have missed.
It’s release is in time for school holidays, so have fun. It stars the voices of: T.J.Miller, Steven Wright, Jennifer Corden, Maya Rudolph, James Corden and Anna Faris.
