“Jailbreak is the only emoji who knows about computers,” says Anna Faris. “She’s rebellious, funny, tough and smart. In fact, she is one of the smartest characters I’ve ever played, I must say. And she’s not afraid to go after what she wants,” she says.

Actress Anna Faris who has dubbed for Jailbreak, considered to be the smartest emoji of all in The Emoji Movie, says that she is fun and rebellious. The Emoji Movie is an upcoming 3D computer-animated comedy film written and directed by Tony Leondis and co-written by Eric Siegel and Mike White. The movie is based on the ideograms of the same name.

In the film, Jailbreak is a tough, blue-haired, code breaking emoji. Cynical and smart, there’s nothing she can’t reprogram. Jailbreak dreams of someday leaving the phone and living in the cloud, a legendary world where she can live her life by her own rules.

Director Leondis said, “At first, we don’t know why exactly Jailbreak wants to get to the cloud — and on the journey, we learn that she has a secret.”

“Jailbreak is the only emoji who knows about computers,” says Anna Faris. “She’s rebellious, funny, tough and smart. In fact, she is one of the smartest characters I’ve ever played, I must say. And she’s not afraid to go after what she wants,” she says.

She further says, “The other emojis go to her for help, because they know that if you need something done right, you ask a woman to do it.” Faris says that Jailbreak isn’t like the other emojis. “Most of them live in Textopolis, but the four corners of a single app were not enough for Jailbreak, so she took to the open circuits and set off on her own,” she says.  

The Emoji Movie is all set to release in India on August 11 and also stars James Corden and Steven Wright.
