After the events of the first Angry Birds movie, the inhabitants of Bird Island and Pig Island have been locked in a never-ending war. The birds shoot large bottles of hot sauce at the pigs (via slingshot, of course), while the pigs retaliate by dropping large quantities of pinching crabs onto the sun-bathing birds.
In the sequel, aptly titled The Angry Birds Movie 2, the fowl (led by Jason Sudeikis' Red) and the swine (led by Bill Hader's Leonard) must put aside their differences to face a new enemy that threatens them both.
That'd be Zeta (Leslie Jones), a bird tired of living a frozen existence on a third, newly discovered island. She wants what the other birds have (mainly a mild and warmer climate for starters) and is willing to attack them for it.
