AngrybirdsstarwarsIn what is perhaps the inevitable next step for the marketing juggernaut that is Angry Birds, Rovio has teamed up with George Lucas for the next installment in the Birds-Kill-Pigs franchise.

Angry Birds Star Wars, the company announced today, will be released on November 8th for iOS and Mac, as well as a host of other platforms.

Rovio is going all out with the marketing tie-in, launching a Tumblr page with fan art, wallpapers, and more.
"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."

George Lucas would have never allowed this!...Oh wait he did!


The real Lucas died years ago...... he's strictly animatronic these days. ;)

Clearly the next episode of the Angry Birds franchise should be:

Angry Birds : Happy Days!
In which the main goal is to ensure the bird's trajectory lands them safely on the other side of the shark.
