Charli XCX, a mostly calm British person, will play a (presumably angry) bird in the upcoming Angry Birds movie. She joins a whole group of other humans who are lending their voices to birds and pigs alike, including Blake Shelton, Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Kate McKinnon. Charli’s bird, named Willow, will surely be the fanciest of the cast, as evinced by her sporty orange beanie — also because Charli was on that song “Fancy.” You may have heard of it.
