Angry Birds Star Wars coming November 8

A long time ago -- in mobile years -- in a country far, far away -- unless you live in Finland -- a small company called Rovio created a game called Angry Birds which went on to become a franchise, and is now trading slingshots for light-slings with the mother of all modern franchises -- Star Wars.

On November 8, the Angry Birds and Star Wars universes will collide, in our best game to date.

It doesn't stop there though, we'll have a whole host of toys, animations and other Angry Birds Star Wars goodness to enjoy! So, watch the video a few times, follow our page and check back every day - this is just the beginning.

May the birds be with you

Not much else is know at this point, but I'm guessing we'll see Pig Vader at the very least, along with a Lark Birdwalker and maybe a Hawk Solo? Either way, it'll be interesting to see how long it takes to X-Wing a Rebel bird bomb down the chute to blow the wooden Death Star into 3-star earning oblivion.

We'll find out in a month.

Angry Birds Star Wars coming November 8


The thing that wows me is the merchandising. During the back to school sales this year Angry Birds was (and still is) just about everywhere. I've never seen so much come out of a game, it's like a Pixar movie.

Pretty amazing for such a simple game to become such a big part of popular culture. Funny thing is, my kids don't hardly play the games much at all, but they sure love their Angry Birds pajamas, erasers, snack crackers, t-shirts, stuffed animals, etc, etc, etc. Now combining Angry Birds with Star Wars? They are going to move some stuff, no doubt about that.
