From the show:

Not to be confused with, and very much unlike The Emoji Movie, Emojiland is an electric ensemble piece about a diverse community of archetypes who take one another at face value: a smiling face dealing with depression; a princess who doesn’t want a prince; a skull dying for deletion; a nerd face too smart for his own good; a face with sunglasses who can’t see past his own reflection; and a police officer and construction worker who just want to work together. When a software update threatens to destroy life as they know it, Emojiland faces the most fundamental questions a society – and a heart – can face: Who are we? And who matters?

3/5 Stars "With 16 musical numbers, dozens of characters, three main plot lines and a running time of well over two hours, it's a case of more-is-way-too-much, especially since the cyber-silliness isn't that well scripted. Thankfully, its...analog performances prevent the show from crashing."
