Announced last December, the film - based on the Rovio Entertainment gaming series - will be released in summer 2016.
"Every studio in town would love to add Angry Birds to their slate," said Sony Pictures co-chairmen Michael Lynton and Amy Pascal on Wednesday (May 15).
"There are few titles out there that bring this kind of excitement, brand awareness and built-in audience to the table.
"We're thrilled to be distributing this film and we hope this is just the beginning of what will be a long relationship with Rovio as we look for ways to work on future projects together."
Rovio is funding the Angry Birds movie, which already has Despicable Me producer John Cohen and former Marvel Studios chairman David Maisel attached.
The original Angry Birds title launched as a mobile game in 2009, and has been downloaded over 1.7 billion times across all platforms.
Toy lines, soft drinks, an animated TV show and even a theme park have also been launched following the game's international success.
