The Red Planet just wasn’t enough… After its conquest of the Martian surface with Angry Birds Space, our moody avian friends are going into deep space this weekend. The scenario, however, will not be just another battle against their typical ravenous opponents, the green pigs. Rather, it will be a war between galactic forces of good and evil, light and darkness, Star Wars to be exact. No details from Angry Birds‘ creator ROVIO or the folks at Lucasfilm except a just launched Tumblr page with the promise of “… behind-the-scenes content, animations, comics, and much, much more…” In addition, the page offers a reminder for a grand unveiling event at New York City’s Toy”R”Us Times Square this Sunday, October 8th. Meanwhile, you can enjoy the gif animation of a “Jedi Bird” unfurling its lightsaber.
