But now you must be wondering where you can catch ‘The Angry Birds Movie’. We are here to tell you, but before that, let us walk you through the story.
What is The Angry Birds Movie About?
In ‘The Angry Birds Movie’ we meet Red, a temperamental bird living on Bird Island, whose other residents lead an angerless life. When Red’s temper causes an egg to hatch prematurely, he is given the maximum punishment of anger management classes. There he meets two other birds with anger issues. One can move at hypervelocity and is called Chuck, while the other, Bomb, can cause explosions. They try to become friends with Red but he avoids them.
Meanwhile, a boat arrives on the island, damaging Red’s house. It carries green-colored pigs, led by Leonard, their captain. He claims to have come in peace and soon befriends the birds. They also introduce the birds to a host of innovations, including a giant slingshot. While the island’s residents are taken in by the peaceful explorers, Red retains his doubts. As a result, during a party, he goes to check out the boat that the pigs arrived in. However, when he returns to the party, he is booed and asked to leave the pigs alone.
Still unsatisfied, Red takes help from Chuck and Bomb and go to see Mighty Eagle. He is the island’s protector and the only bird that can fly. He has also not been seen for many years. When Red and his friends find Mighty Eagle, the reason becomes abundantly clear. On top of Bird Mountain, the overweight protector resides, but it turns out that he is somewhat of a slacker and has not flown in years. He refuses to help Red. However, time seems to be running out as Red discovers the pigs planting dynamite all around the island. The other birds are distracted by a rave party. Red and his friends arrive too late to issue a warning as the pigs manage to get away in their boat and detonate the explosives, destroying the village. The birds apologize to Red and they build a boat from the rubble, taking the fight to Piggy Island.
The birds discover that King Leonard Mudbeard is their king and he has a wall built around the city. The pigs have also taken some eggs from the birds that must be rescued. This is where the movie’s plot most resembles the game. The birds make use of the sling to knock themselves into the buildings on Piggy Island, destroying them. Red faces off against Leonard, trying to rescue the eggs. Mighty Eagle also comes to the rescue and flies away with the eggs before an explosion takes place from the leftover dynamite. Thankfully, Red and the one remaining egg are protected by the very pot the pigs planned to cook the eggs in. The explosion does not affect the two but destroys the pigs’ city. Upon returning to Bird Island, Red is greeted as a hero and the eggs hatch to reveal three small blue birds. Red moves in with Chuck and Bomb, while Mighty Eagle proves that he is still the island’s protector. It is later revealed that the pigs have survived as well, with Leonard planning something else.
In the mid-credit scene of the movie, the three blue birds are shown to launch themselves towards the ocean from the sling, indicating that they might very well be joining the team of angry birds in the upcoming movie. Now, without further ado, let us tell you where you can watch ‘The Angry Birds Movie’.
In the sequel, titled ‘The Angry Birds Movie 2’, we see the pigs and birds forced to unite against a common enemy as the Mighty Eagle’s scorned lover from Eagle Island decides to attack both Bird Island and Piggy Island, to force the inhabitants to evacuate. In the course of the movie, Red comes to terms with the fact that being a hero is not as important as being a decent individual and more happily, he finds love by the end of the movie.
