THE EMOJI MOVIE is an animated adventure in which an 'emoji' inside a young boy's phone accidentally causes chaos when he expresses more than one emotion.

Theme

Occasional toilet humour occurs in reference to the 'poop emoji' and a 'high-five emoji' reveals his buttocks while dancing.

Threat

Scenes of mild threat include characters being chased and disintegrated by robots or blasted by fire, although nobody is seriously injured and there are comic moments throughout.

Language

Terms include 'butt', 'screw up' and 'freaking'.

Precuts information

During post-production, the distributor sought and was given advice on how to secure the desired classification. Following this advice, certain changes were made prior to submission

Note: The following text may contain spoilers

This film was originally seen for advice, at which stage the company was advised it was likely to be classified PG but that their preferred U could be achieved by removing some mild bad language. When the film was submitted for formal classification, the mild bad language in question had been removed and the film was therefore classified U.
