Coming Soon: Star Wars Angry Birds!
On November 8th, worlds collide when Rovio and Lucasfilm Ltd unleash Star Wars Angry Birds for tablets and smartphones.
It’s exactly what it sounds like, too; Angry Birds/Angry Birds Space set against the backdrop of the one of the most unforgettable film franchises in history, Star Wars. From the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Death Star; the game and merchandise will feature the Angry Birds characters starring as the iconic heroes of the beloved Saga.
“This is the best Angry Birds game we’ve ever done. It’s the best parts of Angry Birds with all new cutting-edge gameplay set in in a galaxy far, far away. As a big Star Wars fan myself, I’m really excited about this new universe. The Force is definitely strong with this one.” – Peter Vesterbacka, the Mighty Eagle and CMO of Rovio.
But wait, that’s not all!
Starting October 28th, Angry Birds Star Wars merchandise (ranging from Halloween costumes and apparel to action figures and collectible plush toys) will be available at select retailers!
“Both Star Wars and Angry Birds share the instant and irresistible appeal of hands-on fun. People seem to instinctively know what to do when handed a lightsaber or a bird in a slingshot, so this is a natural combination.” – Colum Slevin, Vice President, Head of Studio Operations for Lucasfilm Ltd.
Star Wars Angry Birds will available for iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone and Windows 8 this November 8th.
In the meantime, be sure to check out the official SW Angry Birds Tumblr where you can peep (pun intended) fan art AND submit some of your own, choose your alliance to the Empire or Rebellion and even download the pic featured in this article as a wallpaper for FREE!
Clearing space (pun also intended) from my iPhone as we speak…also, I want that R2 unit made into a plushy so very muchy.
