A long time ago in a nest far, far, away…

Today, Rovio Entertainment & Lucasfilm LTD officially announced they would be collaborating together to  release Angry Birds Star Wars. The game will provide the classic fun of Angry Birds & Angry Birds Space with a Star Wars twist adding the characters, stories, and settings from the Star Wars 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,” said Peter Vesterbacka, the Mighty Eagle  and CMO of Rovio. “As a big Star Wars fan myself, I’m really excited about this new universe. The Force is definitely strong with this one.”

To help amp up the launch, merchandise will be released as well ranging from action figures, plush toys, and Halloween costumes starting on October 28th.

“Both Star Wars and Angry Birds share the instant and irresistible appeal of hands-on fun,” said Colum Slevin, Vice President, Head of Studio Operations for Lucasfilm Ltd. “People seem to instinctively know what to do when handed a lightsaber or a bird in a slingshot, so this is a natural combination.”

 

Angry Birds Star Wars will be available on November 8th for  iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone and Windows 8.
