Emojis have gone from a simple image to the narrative of the 21st century in just a few years

Sony Pictures Animation’s latest flick is an unconventional one – a movie based on emojis that takes place entirely within a smartphone. More accurately, the emojis will be portrayed as characters, according to the production house’s president Kristine Belson, who appeared before an audience in this year’s CinemaCon to quickly make this film’s presence known. ‘Within the smartphone’ of course refers to the emoji’s realm of residence, ‘Emoji Valley’ (according to Belson), though details as to what this world might look like and/or be represented as in the context of this film are unknown.
