Gather your droids, new Angry Birds Star Wars trailer and images released

Angry Birds Star Wars title

When Rovio’s @AngryBirds Twitter account posted a teaser image of what appeared to be a Star Wars-related Angry Birds photo, fans got all sorts of excited for the release of yet another new spinoff of the popular gaming app. Today, Rovio has unveiled the new teaser trailer along with an official announcement at New York’s Time Square early this morning. The trailer itself may not show you a lot, but leaked photos of Angry Birds Star Wars show several different birds as our beloved heros with the red bird as Luke Skywalker, the yellow bird as Han Solo, and the big green bird as Chewbacca. Of course, it will only make sense that the Bad Piggies will turn up somehow as members of Galactic Empire or simply as stormtroopers you’ve got to take down. Expect the top level pig at the final level of each stage to be one of the main villains, such as Darth Vader or other sith lords.

If we say so ourselves, the piggies look pretty good in a stormtrooper uniform. Slimming, almost. George Lucas always knows how to capitalize on his franchise, no matter how sold out this gets by combining forces with Rovio. We supposed it could only make sense that when Rovio took Angry Birds to space, it had to incorporate the biggest associated with life in the galactic realm.

We expect more to come from the new Angry Birds Star Wars edition at this weekend’s New York Comic Con, so stay tuned. In the mean time, the game is expected for a November 8 release date, and will be available on iOS, Android, PC, and Mac.
