Fear leads to anger, anger leads to birds, and angry birds leads to… Star Wars? A couple days ago, Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm Ltd. announced that they have collaborated to bring us the first official Angry Birds Star Wars mash-up game, along with a slew of Hasbro toys based on it (sadly no LEGO sets). One might wonder: Was this really necessary? This rebel blogger certainly thinks so. The game will be available on November 8 on a multitude of platforms.
However, this is not the first time we have seen these two immensely popular franchises together. T-shirt designer Steven Anderson came up with very similar character and level designs back in April 2011. You can see them on Bite. It makes you wonder if he had anything to do with this.
You can read the official announcement on StarWars.com and visit the official site of the game for lots of teaser material. Then, come discuss it in our Star Wars Discussion Thread (Yes, EB is back online!).
