Megan ask Cueball if he knows about the upcoming The Emoji Movie. He replies by saying its not the worst section of Unicode to make a movie about. Megan then says she'd watch a movie about Combining Diacritical Marks. Cueball remarks that this series would have too many characters, which is a pun on the double meaning of the word character that correspond to a grapheme (such as a letter, a digit or a punctuation mark).
The "Antz/A Bug's Life thing" refers to the Twin films phenomenon, in which two films with very similar (or identical) concepts are released within roughly the same timeframe. Advertising campaigns for movies tend to start running at least a few months in advance, with nondescript teasers popping up as far back as the year before the film's release. The fact that we've seen not hide nor hair of any prospective Dingbats movie means that there's pretty much no chance of The Emoji Movie receiving a twin film of its own; it would either have to be released a good while later, or be produced by a sweatshop production studio of ill repute (a la Vídeo Brinquedo).
