Nicki Minaj Joins Angry Birds Movie 2
There is a new Angry Birds 2 movie coming out in August next year. And what makes the sequel even more exciting is that Nicki Minaj has officially joined the cast. Although her role is unspecified yet, she is definitely on board to provide a voice over. Minaj is just the recent addition to the cast which already includes Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage and Danny McBride. The rest will reprise their roles from the first movie, but Minaj will probably find a new spot. Probably what’s even more interesting is that the release date for this sequel is the same as the 10th anniversary of the hit video game. Apparently, the Angry Birds games have been downloaded more than 4 billion times. But does that mean fans are expecting a bit too much out of the upcoming movie?
