Star Wars, Meet Angry Birds

The new

As if Disney‘s recent purchase of Lucasfilm and promise to begin the first of three new trilogy films soon were not exciting enough, it now looks like Rovio Entertainment is getting in on the act.

This Thursday, Rovio plans to launch “Angry Birds Star Wars” on all the major platforms. According to developers, it follows “a plucky group of Rebel birds in their fight against the evil Imperial Pigs.” There are more than 80 levels and players will get to “wield a lightsaber, use the Force and blast away Pigtroopers on an intergalactic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star.”

The game will even feature a porky version of Darth Vader!

It sounds like Star Wars nerds like me will have something to look forward to this week, ladies and gentlemen. Until then, may the Pork be with you…

  1. may the Pork be with you

    Haha, I like that.

  2. That combines my 5 yr olds two favourite things! Now if they could just make it out of Lego I may have to pry my iPhone from my son’s cold, dead hands before he would relinquish it back to me!

  3. This is a truly excellent idea. Do it. Now.

  4. Oddly enough I’m excited! πŸ™‚
