Announcing Angry Birds Star Wars

October 08, 2012


On November 8, Jedi birds will launch from lightsaber slingshots to take down Sith pigs on mobile devices everywhere. Angry Birds is officially heading to a galaxy far, far away with the release of Angry Birds Star Wars.

A new collaboration by Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm Ltd., Angry Birds Star Wars combines the classic gameplay and art style of Angry Birds with the legendary characters, designs, stories, and locales of the Star Wars saga. Gamers will take on the Empire in famous settings like Tatooine and the Death Star, but with the Angry Birds stable of characters playing the beloved Star Wars roles; the innovative touch-screen controls pioneered by Angry Birds are intact and improved, and the game's humor is as sharp as ever.

"This is the best Angry Birds game we've ever done," says 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."

And starting October 28, Angry Birds Star Wars merchandise will hit store shelves, celebrating the legacy and fun of both historic franchises as they come together in a new, exciting way. Halloween costumes, plush toys, and action figures of the new Angry Birds Star Wars crossover will be available for fans of all ages.

"Both Star Wars and Angry Birds share the instant and irresistible appeal of hands-on fun," says 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."

The game will be available on a multitude of platforms, including iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone, and Windows 8.
