Gene, a multi-expressional emoji, sets out on a journey to become a normal emoji.
This was Sofía Vergara's second Sony Animation movie, after The Smurfs (2011).
Wait a minute... I've never seen that dance... What's it called
Gene: The Emoji Pop
Akiko Glitter: I love it
As the Emojis start chanting Gene's name, Hi-5 begins chanting his own name and making comments. His mouth is never in sync with the words, it just opens and closes.
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".
