Cor­den in love with emo­jis

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

English ac­tor James Cor­den (left) says he found the idea of un­lock­ing the world of emo­jis inside a smart­phone through the forth­com­ing film, The Emoji Movie, charm­ing. Cor­den was drawn to the story and the way it cre­ated a hid­den world be­hind the pop­u­lar icons. “You can punc­tu­ate any mo­ment with a great emoji,” Cor­den said. He added, “In the film these are char­ac­ters with spir­its, and souls, and hearts, and minds with some­thing very real at stake for all of them.” The ac­tor says the idea sounded “quite charm­ing”. The emoti­cons have a per­son­al­ity of their own in the film — some­thing to lose, and had real friend­ships. “That felt like fun to me,” he added.

The Emoji Movie is writ­ten and di­rected by Tony Leondis and co-writ­ten by Eric Siegel and Mike White. The movie is based on the ideograms of the same name. Cor­den is play­ing the char­ac­ter of the Hi-5 emoji in the movie. Hi-5 is an open-face palm emoji ready to give a Hi-5 at any time.
