At Bird Island, an island inhabited by flightless birds, reclusive, grumpy clown Red is sentenced to anger management class after his temper costs him a customer. One day, a boat docks at Bird Island, carrying pigs from Piggy Island led by Leonard. Claiming to be peaceful explorers bringing offerings of friendship, the pigs are accepted on the island. More pigs arrive on Bird Island and seemingly adjust to society, but Red becomes suspicious of their motives. He recruits his classmates Chuck and Bomb to help him find Mighty Eagle, a giant bald eagle said to be the protector of the island, and the only bird that can fly. They find him on top of Bird Mountain. However, they discover that Mighty Eagle is largely in retirement, and hasn’t flown in years. Later, Red’s group sees the pigs planting explosives around the island while the birds are at a party. They realize the party was a ruse to steal the birds’ eggs. Red and Bomb attempt to retrieve the eggs, but the pigs escape and their explosives destroy the village. When the birds realize what happened, Red rallies them to let their anger loose and take back their eggs. The birds construct a boat and sail to Piggy Island, where they find the pigs living in a walled city. Deducing the eggs are most likely in the central castle of the city, the birds attack the pigs by firing themselves into the pig village using a giant slingshot. Red, Chuck, and Bomb make it to the castle and find the eggs in a boiler room, where the pigs plan to cook and eat them. Mighty Eagle arrives, having had a change of heart, and carries the eggs out. As the birds escape, an egg falls out and makes its way back into the castle. Red returns the castle, retrieves the egg, and survives Piggy Island’s destruction, caused by the pigs’ reserve of explosives. After the explosion, Red is hailed as a hero. He, Chuck, and Bomb are approached by Mighty Eagle, who claims that he wasn’t really lazy and made them lose faith in him to teach them to find faith in themselves. In a mid-credits sequence, it is revealed that all of the pigs have survived Piggy Island’s destruction, while Leonard is hatching a new plan to steal the eggs.
