Hey Buttbuddz subscribers, we’ve got some great news for you today! Emoji movie fans will be excited to hear that The Emoji Movie 2 has finally been announced, under the title of The Emoji Movie 2: Attack of the Bitmoji. The BUTTBUDDZ BLOG has even gotten exclusive information on this new motion picture, which I’ll leave my thoughts on.
1. Six years after the first movie, the popularity of emojis have gone down and they must fight for relevance against bitmojis.
First off, great plot idea here as a fanatic of bitmojis (not nearly as much as emojis of course). I think this will lead to some interesting conflicts and confrontations. However, I do wonder where the protagonists from the first movie will fit in.
I mean, Gene’s obviously in it as we can see by this released concept art:
But what about Jailbreak? Hi-5? As much of a shoe-in as they seem to be, I feel like they should’ve been confirmed from the start if they were going to be there. Will Gene perhaps flip to the bitmojis which is why we have no art of other emoji characters? It’s entirely possible the movie will attempt to build a new cast of characters from scratch which, while questionable, could work out if they pull it off right. It’d also be a good excuse to touch upon the history of the bitmojis, since they were never mentioned in the first movie and that fact could potentially come off as a retcon to some.
And how about Alex, is he still here? It’s implied the movie will still take place inside his phone, but what role will he have? Will Addie make an appearance as well? It’ll have been six years after the first movie, so perhaps their relationship will have progressed since then?
2. There will be thought provoking statements and commentary on socialism vs. capitalism
This shouldn’t be much of a surprise seeing the bravery T.J. Miller had to incorporate themes like these into the first movie, but I think he did pick a particularly interesting topic in particular. You don’t see enough socialism vs. capitalism themes in movies, which is a shame because I think it’s a great topic to be putting in kids movies so they can make informed decisions later in life.
Socialism and capitalism are two different things, right? I’m theorizing that the emojis may represent socialism, with the bitmojis representing communism. It could potentially be vice versa, however, and we don’t really definitively know who the good and bad guys are. Maybe the emojis will revert to a primal, rampaging state due to their frustration of losing relevance and maybe the bitmojis will just be minding their own business only to be attacked. There’s plenty of possibilities that shouldn’t be counted out, because the rivalry could very well be a gray area.
3. Patrick Stewart will return to his role as Poop
That’s all we have for now. Hopefully we get more info soon, but in the meantime I’ll see you later, emoji fans.
