The Angry Birds Movie Available on Blu-ray and DVD

Disclosure: Complimentary product was received for review purposes.

My kids were bummed that we didn't get a chance to catch The Angry Birds Movie while it was still in theaters, but we finally had a chance to watch it when the Blu-ray / DVD Combo Pack was delivered to our home last week.

In the animated comedy-adventure, THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE, we’ll finally find out why the birds are so angry. The movie takes us to an island populated entirely by happy, flightless birds – or almost entirely. In this paradise, Red (Jason Sudeikis), a bird with a temper problem, speedy Chuck (Josh Gad), and the volatile Bomb (Danny McBride) have always been outsiders. But when the island is visited by mysterious green piggies, it’s up to these unlikely outcasts to figure out what the pigs are up to.

The Columbia Pictures/Rovio Animation film is directed by Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis from a screenplay by Jon Vitti. Produced by John Cohen and Catherine Winder, THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIEwas executive produced by Mikael Hed and David Maisel.
Bonus content on THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE Blu-ray, DVD and digital formats includes a bonus scene; the Blake Shelton Music Video “Friends;” Symphony Mode, which allows viewers to play the movie without all the squawking, just the music; a Character Sketch Gallery, where fans can see drawings and renderings of the birds, pigs and environments from the film; and Music Vignettes with Composer Heitor Pereira. Blu-ray and digital exclusive content includes the all-new short “The Early Hatchling Gets the Worm”, deleted scenes and a series of fun mini-movies featuring the Hatchlings. There are also five additional featurettes including “Dance Along Birds and Pigs,” where fans learn the line dance from the movie; “Crafty Birds,” where viewers learn how to build their own piggy tower; and three featurettes where fans can “Meet the Birds,” “Meet The Pigs” and “Meet the Hatchlings.”

After gathering all of their Angry Bird plush toys, my boys eagerly sat down to watch The Angry Birds Movie.

They were excitedly naming all of the characters on the Blu-ray menu before the movie even started!

The boys loved the movie.  It was pretty much non-stop giggles throughout, as they were introduced to all the different characters and their special talents on the movie, as well as the contraptions they were familiar with from playing the game, such as the slingshot.

After the green piggies arrive to the island inhabited by the birds, the once happy birds turn angry as they realize what the pigs are really up to.

The kids really enjoyed the movie, and were thrilled towards the end, when three familiar birds finally made an appearance in the movie.

After reading Nadia's review of the movie, I was expecting the gross humor.  One scene that resulted in some of the biggest laughs from my kids (and a huge "ewwww" from me) was when the Mighty Eagle emerged and did something quite foul, and the birds' reaction to this action was hilarious!

If your kids love Angry Birds, this is a great DVD to add to your collection!
