Angry Birds X: The Fine Feathered Movie is a 2018 American live-action/animated comedy/action/adventure/fantasy film based on the Cartoon Network animated television series based on the mobile app, Angry Birds X. It is the fourth feature-length live-action/animation hybrid film to feature  Looney Tunes characters, after Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), Space Jam (1996), and Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003). The film was co-written, directed, and produced by series creator Genndy Tartakovsky, with live-action sequences directed by Robert Zemeckis and Joe Dante and were filmed in New York City, and features the series' cast. It was distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures and produced by Warner Bros. Family Entertainment, Warner Animation Group, Rovio Animation along with Cartoon Network StudiosAmblin Entertainment, Xilam Animation, and Sony Pictures Animation, using traditional animation created with TMS Entertainment and Yowza Animation. The events of the movie take place between the fourth season and the fifth season. In the film, In order to stop a threat to Piggy Island, Bomb and the entire Flock embark on a crazy zany adventurous journey and battle a new arch-nemesis in order to save the universe and their eggs.

The film communicates themes of anger and teamwork and a tonal shift from heart-warming to comedically adventurous to action-packed. The film was widely promoted by Warner Bros. and Cartoon Network, with tie-in promotions made by Kellogg's, Pizza Hut, McDonald's and Hasbro. The film was released on April 13, 2018. Due to its gigantic marketing, the film was a box office success, grossing $4 billion against its $88 million budget. The film received acclaim from critics, many of whom pointed to the film's art direction, script, humor, characters, setting, and Heitor Pereira's musical score and a bombastic orchestrated rendition of the Angry Birds theme. Reception from the fanbase is more praised.

The film was dedicated to Joe Alaskey, whom died from cancer in February 3, 2016, and June Foray, who died in July 26, 2017. 

Plot

The prologue of the movie shows test footage of a live action island showing photorealistic CGI versions of the Flock and the Pigs, but it is interrupted by Bomb, who is sick and tired of those live-action/CGI adaptations based on cartoons, starts telling the audience that Warner Bros. must be dense. The Flock are going to the Warner Bros. studio, with several cartoon characters helping them get there, as they angrily lash out at Thaddeus Plotz and the Warner Bros., demanding that their movie must be traditionally animated. Plotz rudely refuses to do that, because live action films based on cartoons make more money. Out of genuine helpfulness, Chuck cleverly calls Yosemite Sam, whom furiously comes in and threatens to shoot Plotz with his six-shooter if he doesn't turn the flock's movie to be fully animated. With complete regret and fear, Thaddeus Plotz quickly and promptly accepts their request to make their movie fully animated. After changing the medium to traditionally animated, the movie then continues.

The movie begins as the Pigs invites The Flock to share a gigantic feast at the All-Toon Companionship Festival, a time when the Flock, the cartoon characters, and the Pigs play fun games, crazy rides, and activities over Piggy Island. On his way, Bomb brings the Eggs along with him. Meanwhile, Edgar Baconhooves, the chef of pig city, complains about his failures to his lackey, Gramps, being unable to steal the eggs. When Gramps points out plan "105", a scheme which he has yet to attempt, Edgar decides to implement it. The festivities are interrupted by an invasion of monstrous crows commanded by the villainous crow Baron Harmful (Tim Curry), the leader of Crow Island, who uses a magical nuclear sapphire orb to obliterate the entire Pig City to a complete wasteland. The Flock and the pigs go into a fallout bunker. When the birds see that the eggs are missing, they realized that their eggs have been stolen by Baron Harmful, and the courageous Bomb rallies them to retrieve their eggs and save Piggy Island.

After given missions from the Mighty Eagle, The Flock construct a boat, bringing their slingshot, and embark on a journey. After completely escaping a pack of piranhas, a pair of beautiful sirens, and a group of pig-like behemoths, The Flock reach a peaceful island called Birdhamas filled with other birds. After coming to the conclusion that they have to complete their journey due to being ‘angry heroes’, The Flock decided that they won't give up as King Matthew, Nigel, Richard, Louis, and Ross arrive and Professor Mario Pigsworth upgrades their boat. They make camp in the island, after the inhabitants of Bird Town accept that they'll help, much to Bomb's delight.

After going back to Piggy Island, the Flock discover that the mastermind behind Baron Harmful's arrival is their archenemy, Edgar the Chef Pig, Don Bacon, and his assistant, Patsy. Bomb and his flock are ready to beat Edgar and his goons, but Baron Harmful stops them and throws them into a portal. Bomb and his friends, now animated in stylized CGI, find themselves at New York City in the real world, as they have to go find shelter in a hotel. While looking for a place to sit, Hal begins to lose hope and becomes depressed. After seeing him down on the dumps, Scarlett Johansson motivates Hal to never lose faith on his friends and never give up, restoring his confidence.

Seeing his friends enter a heated argument, Hal manages to successfully stop this with a rousing speech. The Flock resolve their differences, while they wonder how they get back to Piggy Island. Fortunately, Sofia Vergara and Eddie Murphy appears and offers them a slingshot. They managed to launch the Flock back to Piggy Island.

The Flock return to Piggy Island to save the captive pigs and toons and attack and defeat Baron Harmful by firing themselves over his colossal ship using their giant slingshot. However, Baron Harmful and Don Bacon retaliate by conjuring a hurricane in the island with his weather powers, betraying Edgar as well, with Baron Harmful calling Edgar a "revolting scavenger". The Flock save Edgar from the hurricane and reunites with the Eggs. Edgar apologizes to the Flock, saying that he only now understands why keeping the Great Egg War going is a bad idea. Edgar and The Flock work together to beat Baron Harmful, but to no avail. Baron Harmful traps the Flock and prepares to destroy them.

Just when all hope seems lost, Bugs Bunny calls in Winnie and her flock and every single toon, including the Looney Tunes, Garfield, the Mystery Inc. gang, Woody Woodpecker, The Nicktoons, Finn and Jake, Steven Universe, Mordecai and Rigby, The Tiny Toons, the Warner Siblings, and Rocky and Bullwinkle to arrive and help the Flock. An all-out war broke between Baron Harmful's army and the Flock. All of the birds, toons, and pigs fend off Baron Harmful's henchmen while Edgar keeping the eggs away from him. The Flock battle against Baron Harmful, who is flattened by Terence, but survives, exposing him as a very cartoonishly deranged psychopathic bird. Baron Harmful hurls an box of TNT at the group, but Hal throws it in his way, destroying his ship. An vengeful and deranged Baron Harmful yells at the Flock that he will return to try to take over Piggy Island. In the middle of his rant, however, Chuck drops an anvil on Baron Harmful, which knocks him out. King Smoothcheeks and the pigs stand before the defeated crow and, at Edgar's suggestion, firing Baron Harmful via cannon, into Nigel's deep fryer, and finally being eaten whole by Sylvester, whom spitted out his remains, while Don Bacon and Patsy are arrested for their crimes against Piggy Island. The Flock and Edgar rebuild Pig City with the help of the Blues.

The All-Toon Companionship Festival resumes. While being praised by the Pigs, and gained a golden egg from Corporal Richard Pigman, The Flock even forgive Edgar by giving him the golden egg when they sees him sulking in sorrow, feeling regretful and left out, and he befriends them with a polo cap for each egg. Edgar remarks that betraying his kind was the dumbest thing he's ever done. Hal shows him a montage of him stealing the eggs and Edgar even admits that that, was the dumbest thing he's ever done. The Flock celebrate by protecting the eggs together. Bomb shows a sign reading "Happy ending ain't it?"

When the film ends, it is revealed that The entire Flock are watching their film in a dark theater, Silver insists on watching it again. Chuck protests until The Pigs, Lucy and Patrick (his mom and dad), Winnie, and her entire flock from the movie come to watch it as well, soon joined by numerous cartoon characters (with Matilda commenting that they need a bigger theater).

A mid-credits scene shows The Flock welcomes Winnie and her gang to Piggy Island.

Production

Following the success of Angry Birds X, Rovio Animation and Cartoon Network Studios announced that they would make a movie adaptation based on Angry Birds X in July 31, 2015. Originally, Columbia Pictures owned the rights to the movie and were looking to make it a live action/CGI hybrid a la Alvin and the Chipmunks and the Smurfs directed by Raja Gosnell and produced by David Kellogg. Until in August 13, 2016, Warner Bros. Pictures got the rights to the movie, watched Looney Tunes: Back in Action, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Who Framed Roger Rabbit and The SpongeBob Squarepants Movie, and decided to make it a fully 2D-animated movie with live action scenes mixed in. Filming began on March 1, 2017 and wrapped on August 3, 2017.

The animation for the cartoons characters, the Flock, and the Pigs is provided by Yowza Animation, TMS Entertainment, Hong Ying Animation, Rough Draft Studios, and Saerom Animation. Warner Bros. and Rovio also hired Richard Williams and Eric Goldberg to direct the animation. Reel FX Animation Studios is used to render the Flock in 3D. Special effects are provided by Industrial Light & Magic and Sony Pictures Imageworks is provided for the live-action objects the Flock had to interact with in the film.

Joe Dante convinced Bagdasarian Productions, Nintendo, Nickelodeon, Sega, Turner Entertainment, MGM, Paws Inc., Paramount, Peanuts Worldwide LLC, Film Roman, Universal, Allspark Animation, and Xilam to lend their characters to appear in the film, the same way Spielberg convinced Warner Bros. and the various other companies to lend their characters to appear in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Originally however, Joe Dante also wanted Disney characters to appear in the film like Phineas and Ferb, Wander, Kim Possible, Mickey Mouse, Star Butterfly, and Dipper and Mabel Pines, but Warner Brothers thought that would be too weird, to the point that they thought it would be another "Wreck-It Ralph", so they told him the Nicktoons cameo would seem more "appropriate" for Nickelodeon fans, which Dante agreed.

Trivia

  • This is the third Cartoon Network theatrical film, the first being the Powerpuff Girls Movie and the second being Regular Show: The Movie.
  • This is the first Warner Animation Group film to be in traditional 2D animation.
  • Despite Sony Pictures Animation having involvement in the film, Columbia Pictures or Sony Pictures Releasing didn’t distribute it.
  • This is the first film produced by Amblin Feature Animation, a successor to Amblimation.
  • Despite being produced by Cartoon Network (in association with Rovio Anmation and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment), Angry Birds X: The Fine-Feathered Movie also marked the second time that characters from several animation studios appeared in one film, the first being Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
  • Several voice actors make cameos as the voice of the character(s) they have played before. These are Candi Milo (Dexter, Sweetie Pie, Coco), Skyler Page (Clarence), and Charlie Adler (Buster Bunny, Candy Hector Caramella, I.R. Baboon, Cow, Chicken, and The Red Guy). But most noticeable is Mindy Cohn as Velma Dinkley. Mindy did Velma's voice from 2002 - 2015
  • This is the first Angry Birds movie to be 2D animated.
  • This is the first time Calamity Coyote speaks.
  • Charlie Adler reprises his role as Buster Bunny.

Cultural references

  • The scene where Ralph T. Guard trying to eject the Flock out of the Warner Bros. studio is similar to his portrayal in Tiny Toon Adventures where he guarded the Warner Bros. Studios, and was often at odds with the Tiny Toons, usually Plucky Duck.
  • Throughout the beginning is a giant middle finger to live-action adaptations of cartoons from every toon protesting Warner Bros. to make the Flock’s movie 2-D animated, to Yogi Bear and Scooby criticizing their live action movies, Shaggy chastising Matthew Lillard's portrayal of him again (being a reference to Looney Tunes: Back in Action), Finn, Chowder, and Flapjack agreeing to never make a deal with Hollywood to make a live-action adaptation, and Yakko telling Wakko and Dot that the Flock have got the "live-action treatment".
  • When The Flock came across Freddie Prinze Jr., Sarah Michelle Gellar, Linda Cardellini, and Matthew Lillard and Jay, Jake, and Jim asked if they had any regrets. They replied "Scooby-Doo, maybe.", possibly a reference to Zombieland, where Bill Murray actually regretted starring in Garfield.
  • One scene has Fifi La Fume interacting with Gumball Watterson, Muscle Man, and Peridot, with Muscle Man roasting Fifi La Fume for hiding in the food dish cover on a serving cart, a reference to Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation.
  • The scene where Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup telling Thaddeus Plots to make the Flock’s movie fully animated, with Bubbles pleading Plotz to not let it bomb at the box office is a nod to how The Powerpuff Girls Movie bombed at the box office
  • The scene where The Flock spot 7-Eleven is a nod to the Walmart scene in Looney Tunes: Back In Action.
  • When Bugs Bunny mocks Thaddeus Plotz, it’s a reference to the Looney Tunes short, "Wabbit Twouble", when Bugs Bunny mocked Elmer Fudd.
  • When the cartoon characters and the Flock see Elmyra Duff, they either groan or kick her out to the curb which is a reference to how the fans of Tiny Toon Adventures hate Elmyra Duff.

Reception

Review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reports that 95% of critics gave the film positive reviews, based on 132 reviews. The site's consensus reads, "With its strong characters and eye-popping cartoony animation, Angry Birds X: The Fine-Feathered Movie is both amazingly action-packed and heartwarming, and is the first theatrical Cartoon Network film since The Powerpuff Girls Movie. This finally brought Cartoon Network Studios to make movies and brought back 2-D animation to the big screen again."
