Emojis have become an important and essential communication tool for hundreds of millions of people, so naturally, now there's a movie coming.

"Emojimovie: Express Yourself" is due in August 2017. It will be written by Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis and directed by Leondis. He previously wrote and directed "Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch" and "Igor."
