Angry Birds speak their native language

16.2.2016

If you’re reading this site, chances are you’ve already heard the flock walk and talk in the trailers for The Angry Birds Movie that have been released so far, with the voices of well-known actors from the English-speaking world like Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad and Bill Hader. But maybe you didn’t know that Angry Birds originally come from Finland - and Finnish audiences will also be treated to The Angry Birds Movie in the furious flock’s own native language.

If you don’t speak Finnish yet, why not learn a little suomea now? Embrace your inner viha (anger) and discover one the world’s coolest languages, from one of the world’s coolest countries. We mean that literally. Seriously, it’s freezing in Finland, especially right now in February.
