Emoji Movie
Some other studio should do the Antz/A Bug's Life thing and release The Dingbats Movie at the same time.

The "Antz/A Bug's Life thing" refers to the Twin films phenomenon, in which two films with very similar (or identical) concepts are released within roughly the same timeframe. Advertising campaigns for movies tend to start running at least a few months in advance, with nondescript teasers popping up as far back as the year before the film's release. The fact that we've seen not hide nor hair of any prospective Dingbats movie means that there's pretty much no chance of The Emoji Movie receiving a twin film of its own; it would either have to be released a good while later, or be produced by a sweatshop production studio of ill repute (a la Vídeo Brinquedo).

Megan: Did you see there's an emoji movie?
Cueball: If they have to make a movie about a section of Unicode, it's not the worst choice...
Megan: They should do a whole series. I would watch the Comibing diacritical marks movie.
Cueball: That series would have way too many characters.

I think I'd rather watch the Wingding movie. The Emoji movie looks absolutely horrible and already worthy of being on the next season of MST3K. OldCorps (talk) 18:17, 30 June 2017 (UTC)

This comic is published one day before unicode (ver 2018) emoji submission deadline. Is it worth being noticed in the explaination? Gleeee (talk) 02:48, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

I'm wondering whether there is a newer version, but for Unicode 6.0 a move does exist already: https://vimeo.com/48858289 -- 07:11, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

I just was on KYM, and by curiosity ran into the discussion about the movie (tl;dr: Nuke it from orbit). Decided to look up the newest xkcd to forget it quickly. Randall, I hate you. 19:26, 1 July 2017 (UTC)

Damn. Beer is not rendering. What do I need to update? -- Hkmaly (talk) 00:19, 7 July 2017 (UTC)
