Angry Birds Movie Adds Sean Penn, Demi Lovato

Two-time Academy Award-winner Sean Penn voicing a grunting, angry bird in the film.


This summer's Angry Birds movie already has a star-studded voice cast, and now the animated feature has added even more high-profile talent. Two-time Academy Award winner Sean Penn, as well as singers Charli XCX and Demi Lovato, are lending their voices to the movie based on Rovio's mobile game.

Entertainment Tonight reports that Penn will play a character named Terence, who is a huge red bird who "only communicates in grunts and growls." He will meet the rest of the main characters, including Red (Jason Sudeikis) and Bomb (Danny McBride) while attending an anger management class.

You can see a clip from this anger management class at ET.

As for Charli XCX, she will play a character named Willow, according to a tweet from producer John Cohen, while Lovato has recorded a song for the movie. This isn't her first time recording a song for an animated movie, as she also did one of the versions of "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen.
