Angry Birds to Get the Star Wars Treatment on October 8th

Posted in Apple News on 06/10/2012 by J. Glenn Künzler


Rovio has come a long way since releasing the very first version of Angry Birds, and has already launched a number of popular spinoffs. So what’s next for the Angry Birds franchise? Judging by a teaser on the Angry Birds Tumblr page, it could be a Star Wars tie-in!

The only information available is this short message:

Times Square, New York, October 8th, 10am EST. HINT: Head to Toys R Us at 8am EST!

Could this be a game launch (it could be a nice fit for Angry Birds Space!), or will it just be a line of toys or accessories mashed up between the Star Wars and Angry Birds universes? It’s not clear from the post. We’ll all just have to wait a couple of days and find out!
