Gene, a multi-expressional emoji, sets out on a journey to become a normal emoji.
Sony Pictures Animation's 15th feature film.
Welcome to the Loser's Lounge, where the emojis who never get used hang out.
Eggplant: What's up, Hi-5?
While most of the emojis in the film are part of the set standardized by Unicode, Toaster, Broom and Disco Ball were not as of mid-2017. The Fortune Cookie and Takeout Box emojis were officially added to the Unicode Standard in June 2017, a month before the movie came out, so they would not have been on phones during filming.
End credits are depicted as text bubbles, with an appropriate emoji for each position, i.e. a camera for the director and monkeys for the writers.
For its UK release, Sony had to remove some mild language in order to receive an U rating instead of a PG - this included a visual use of "WTF" (considered 'disguised strong language' and worthy of a 12A) and a verbal use of "turd".
