Chill out with the arrival of Angry Birds 2

Disclaimer: The Fandads received a review copy of Angry Birds 2 in exchange for a review. All thoughts, opinions, and tears of laughter are our own. 

Angry Birds was one of the many movies that we planned to see in the theaters but never had the chance to go see it. The movie slipped our radar when it was released on home video and next thing we knew part two was released. Thanks to our friends from Sony we received a review copy of the movie and my children and I really enjoyed it.
If you did not see the first movie, it pretty much is summarized in the beginning by the audience finding out that Red saved the island from the pigs. After something happens to the island of the pigs, they reach out to the birds to form a truce and take on this new threat together. This is basically all you need to know about this movie, but there are also some very funny moments in the movie.

Final Thoughts: The movie is a lot of fun. One scene with “Major Tom” playing in the background had my children and me in tears because we were laughing so much. The plot of the movie is very simple and you do not necessarily need to see the first one to understand what is going on. The entire family will enjoy it and it’s a good family night movie.

Kid-Friendly: The movie is very kid-friendly, although there is a bathroom scene that some might find objectionable. One of the themes of the movie is abandonment and that might be something that might need explaining to younger children.

Violence: There is animated violence that is not too much for younger children.

The flightless angry birds and the scheming green piggies take their beef to the next level in THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE 2! When a new threat emerges that puts both Bird and Pig Island in danger, Red (Jason Sudeikis), Chuck (Josh Gad), Bomb (Danny McBride), and Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage) recruit Chuck’s sister Silver (Rachel Bloom) and team up with pigs Leonard (Bill Hader), his assistant, Courtney (Awkwafina), and techpig, Garry (Sterling K. Brown), to forge an unsteady truce and form an unlikely super team to save their homes.
