Smiley face: Jimmy Kimmel and Brie Larson preview upcoming emoji movie

On Wednesday night's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Kimmel and actress Brie Larson read made-up, hilarious scenes from Sony's upcoming emoji movie.

Sony is making an animated movie about emoji, and maybe that's not such a bad idea after all. For Wednesday night's episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Kimmel supposedly got his hands on the script for the upcoming movie, and enacted a scene from the film with his guest, actress Brie Larson of "21 Jump Street."

In the clip, Kimmel's and Larson's characters meet, fall in love, start a family and go through some of the same trials and tribulations many couples face, though they do it all while communicating entirely in the cutesy ideograms that have permeated mainstream culture in the last few years.

From their very first winky face to dates involving eggplant tacos and the couple's first bundle of baby emoji joy, you can watch the emoji couple's relationship play out from start to butcher-knife finish.

Sony Pictures Animation won a bidding war to make the emoji film. Eric Siegel and Anthony Leondis will write the script, with Leondis serving as director.

Watch the clip in full above. Then get all your holding-hands emoji friends ready to bike emoji, car emoji or bus emoji to the nearest film emoji to see how Sony manages to pull off an all-emoji movie when the film hits theaters. It's not yet been announced when that will be: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
