Slated for release in the summer of 2017, 'Emojimovie: Express Yourself' is exactly what its title implies: a movie about emojis. Based on early press images for the film, Emojimovie: Express Yourself will follow the exploits of a group of anthropomorphic emojis like the smiley face, the high five and even the smiling poop.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will take place in the world of Textopolis, a fictional digital landscape inside of people's phones and computers. The main character, Gene (played by comedian TJ Miller,) is a misfit emoji who can make more than one expression. In a quest to fit in, Gene meets other emojis played by big names like Ilana Glazer of 'Broad City' and James Corden of 'The Late Late Show.'
