First Angry Bird Movie Trailer Doesn't Feature Slingshots Or Forts

Ready or not, the first Angry Birds Move trailer is finally upon us. Watch the first cinematic glimpse of your favorite ticked off birds and their weird-looking legs.

The film adaptation of Rovio's popular mobile series was first announced nearly three years ago. Fans of Angry Bird should find the plot pretty familiar; evil pigs invade the home of the birds, greatly upsetting them in the process. If that doesn't make you slingshot yourself out of excitement, the entire trailer is set to Michael Jackson's "Bad". Make your own jokes on that one, depending on your feelings towards the long-running mobile juggernaut. The huge cast includes Jason Sudeikis, Danny McBride, Josh Gad, and gaming's favorite voice actor Peter Dinklage (read more about how Dinklage's work was entirely removed from Destiny). 

The Angry Birds Movie releases in theaters May 2016.
