Colbert remakes all of your favorite movies with emoji

It’s been several months since Sony announced it would be producing an animated movie based entirely on the emoji that live in our Facebook messages and text conversations, but everyone was still finding it hard to believe until the studio explained what the film would be about at CinemaCon 2016 earlier this month.

According to a report from Slashfilm, the emoji characters will act sort of like the toys from Toy Story — living their own lives inside of our phones while we aren’t paying attention. Concept art from the movie showed off a suburban landscape known as Emoji Valley, where all the emoji apparently live.

The reason I’m telling you all of this is because on last night’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert decided that The Emoji Movie shouldn’t be the only movie featuring emoji. So he (and his writing staff) took it upon themselves to rewrite a bunch of classic movies using nothing but emoji characters.

There’s no point in spoiling any of the emoji remakes, so here’s the full video:

The Emoji Movie is currently scheduled to hit theaters on August 11th, 2017.
