Emoji Film unlocks the secret world of your smartphone that has never been seen before. In the messaging application, Textopolis is a lively city, where all your favorite emoji live, hoping to be picked up by phone users. In this world, every emoji has only one hundred expressions except Gene (T.J. Miller), an exuberant emoji born without a filter and bursting in multiple expressions. Being determined to become “normal” like other emoji, Gene helps his best friend Hi-5 (James Corden) and famous code-splitter emoji Jailbreak (Anna Faris).
Together, they start an epic “practice of practice”, along with the applications found on the phone, in their own wild and funny world, to find the Code that will correct Gene.
