The Angry Birds Movie is an upcoming 2016 American 3D CGI-animated action-adventure comedy movie adaptation on the Angry Birds series of video games and is scheduled for release in theaters in 3D & REAL D 3D May 20th, 2016.

The movie takes place on Bird Island, an untouched paradise inhabited by birds who are naive and innocent, who know nothing of the outside world. They treasure eggs above all else, and are all carefree and easygoing, except for few.
One of these birds is Red, a societal outcast who has had anger issues from the very beginning. Eventually, his outbursts become too much and he is sentenced to anger management courses, where he meets other misfit birds with similar problems.
The birds are suddenly visited by green pigs, who are dumb but funny. The birds and pigs quickly befriend each other, but Red does not trust the pigs at all. Ultimately, the pigs reveal their true colors, and leads to Red leading the entire flock in a "maddening" frenzy of rightful revenge as well as finding the right means of dealing with rage.

Bird Island is an island inhabited by flightless birds. Red is running through the forest in a hurry to get somewhere with a wooden egg. Red is revealed to be a reclusive, grumpy red bird outcast prone to hissy fits. He is a clown whose job is to entertain newly hatched birds. After failing his latest client because of his temper, he is sent to bird court where the honorable Judge Peckinpah, who stands on another bird named Cyrus and covers him with a robe, sentences Red to anger management class. The class is taught by Matilda who was an angry bird herself. Among the birds in the class are Chuck, a fast yellow bird who caused problems with a bird cop, Bomb, a gentle black bird who tends to literally explode whenever he gets surprised or upset, and Terence, a giant red bird who only growls. The class fails to improve Red's attitude and he attacks a sign made by Chuck.
One day, while taking the class, Red and the other birds in his class are informed by Stella that "Something's coming!" to the island, which turns out to be a large boat. A pig named Leonard and his smaller assistant, Ross, arrive from the boat and say they are from Piggy Island. Leonard greets the birds and claims to be a peaceful explorer and brings offerings of friendship. They are immediately accepted on the island, as more and more pigs begin to arrive at the island, without hesitation from the birds, except Red.
Eventually, the pigs adjust to society. After Red asks Leonard if he's actually an explorer, why the pigs are still on the island, and why more are coming. Peckinpah informs Red to steer clear of the pigs, refusing to believe his accusations about the pigs. He recruits Chuck and Bomb to help him find Mighty Eagle, a giant eagle who is said to be the protector of the island, and the only bird that can fly. After searching for a few days, they find his "Lake of Wisdom" on top of Bird Mountain and discover the Mighty Eagle. As Red attempts to tell Mighty about his suspicions about the pigs, the Mighty Eagle is revealed to be a lazy, boastful retired bird, who hasn't flown in years. Angry with Mighty, Red and his friends leave after Red sees the pigs planting TNT around the island and they discover that Red's suspicion of the pigs was correct as they are stealing the birds' eggs while the residents are distracted by a party started by the pigs far from the village. After discovering that the pigs are stealing every egg on the island, Red and Bomb attempt to retrieve the eggs while Chuck runs to alert the rest of the island's residents about the theft-in-progress. Red and Bomb fail to stop the pigs, who leave in their boat and in the process, the TNT destroys the village. When the birds arrive on the beach the following morning, Peckinpah apologizes to Red for not listening to him. Seeing the depressed birds, Red rallies them to let their anger loose for once, and set sail for Piggy Island in order to retrieve the stolen eggs.
The birds construct a boat from the supplies left behind by the pigs, set sail and eventually land on Piggy Island. The pigs are revealed to live in a walled city, with a giant castle in the centre. After Red sees a painting of Leonard wearing a crown by the castle entrance, he realises that Leonard is the pigs' king, and that the eggs are most likely in the castle. Using the giant slingshot, the birds attack the pigs by slinging birds such as Hal and Bubbles at them, but fail to reach the castle. Red, Chuck, and Bomb make it to the castle, and find that the eggs are in a boiler room to be cooked and eaten by the pigs. The trio manage to enter when Chuck defeats the guards.
Before they can save the eggs, Red is captured by "Leonard", who reveals his real name "King Mudbeard" and threatens to boil Red. Chuck and Bomb manage to enter the room, and Mighty Eagle flies in (having seen the conflict from Bird Island and deciding to help, having felt guilty after Red had earlier told him he used to look up to him) and tries to carry the eggs out. As the birds escape, a blue egg falls out, making its way back into the castle. Deciding to risk his life, Red goes to save the egg from Leonard and eventually floods the castle with the boiling liquid the pigs were using to cook the eggs. Red outsmarts Leonard and takes back the egg, leaving the King and the entire pig island to be destroyed with TNT in the castle basement that the pigs had used during their heist, taking refuge in the giant overturned pot the eggs were going to be cooked in. After the explosion, the birds mourn the "loss" of Red, but he emerges with the egg (which has hatched, revealing three blue birds) and is hailed a hero. When approached by Mighty Eagle, the giant bird claims that he isn't really lazy and made Red, Chuck And Bomb lose faith in him to teach them to find faith in themselves.
Later, the birds appear to give Mighty Eagle all the credit for the egg rescue, Red humbly takes it in stride. However, he discovers that the birds have rebuilt his house as a sign of gratitude and Red decides that it would be better in life to be part of a community.
During the credits, it is revealed that all of the pigs have survived, while Leonard is hatching a new plan to steal the eggs. In a mid-credits scene, Jay, Jake, and Jim use the slingshot to launch themselves out to sea.

- When the birds are launched from the slingshot, they tuck their legs under their wings, which gives their appearances a spot-on match to their game counterparts.
- It appears the direct source of Red's anger and solitude was back in his early childhood:
He was always made fun of because of his abnormally large eyebrows, giving him the nickname "Eye Brow" (from the official theractical trailer).
- In the games, Matilda drops explosive eggs while flying; but in this movie, she expels egg-shaped fireballs that explode on impact.
- This marks the first appearance of Leonard.
- All the birds except Bomb and Hal have their Toons designs, also Bomb is shown to have a tail in the movie.
- In the film, Mighty Eagle can fly with his whimsical wings.
- Although it has a rotten rating, The Angry Birds Movie is the highest rated video game movie on Rotten Tomatoes.
