It’s happening: The world is finally getting a movie based on emojis.

This summer, The Emoji Movie hits theaters on Friday, July 28 and it boasts an all-star cast. The animated movie revolves around one particular emoji, Gene, voiced by T.J. Miller. He is a multi-emotional emoji masquerading as a “meh emotion” and doesn’t really feel like he fits in.

Taking places inside the world of a phone, Gene gets sent away with the other unused emojis and attempts to become a normal functioning emoji.
