Emoji Movie Press Junket with Sony #EmojiMovie

29 Jun

Emoji Movie Press Day was held at Sony back in May and Bloggers were invited to meet with TJ Miller, Jake T Austin and Director Tony Leondis. 

Snipets of the film were shown. I wanted to see the whole movie but I’m glad I didn’t because I want to enjoy it with my kids. My daughter is such an Emoji fan. I just purchased her emoji bed sheets and she was so excited. 

Director Tony Leondis talked about the scenes that were shown and why he did a movie about Emojis. He said he looked at his phone and saw emojis and bought no one has ever did a movie about inside your phone. From what we saw this is going to be a great movie. All the characters are fun.

TJ Miller was fun to listen to at the roundtable. He said he really enjoyed being interviewed by bloggers. I appreciated that. 

Jake T Austin is a doll. I asked him about being Latino and not being fluent in Spanish like myself. His mother is Puerto Rican but she didn’t speak it as much as he would have liked her to. She grew up speaking more English but is fluent in Spanish. Jake T Austin was also the voice of “Diego”. He spoke a little Diego for us. His favorite 3 apps are Shazam, Instagram and Fruit Ninja. 

Synopsis: Hidden inside a smartphone, the bustling city of Textopolis is home to all emojis. Each emoji has only one facial expression, except for Gene, an exuberant emoji with multiple expressions. 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.
