Angry Birds Movie

They released a trailer for the Angry Birds movie!

The trailer has several long, slow jokes like "pig takes a minute to go to shore" and "bird takes a minute to punch a sign". I wonder if it's easier for actors to do these jokes in animation or live action. With animation, it's easier to change the timing of a joke in editing. With live action, the actors can see the entire scene as it's being filmed.

I say the movie looks okay. I'm not a fan of the Frozen snowman reprising his role. I dunno, as I grow older, the "wacky character who says wacky things all the time" trope in children's animation has gotten less and less amusing.
