It has been officially announced: Rovio and LucasFilm have partnered in order to release a new episode of Angry Birds. The Rebel Alliance will obviously be composed of Birds, and the Empire will be represented by the Piggies (“The Porkside”).
I’m really curious as to how they reached this partnership, but I guess Angry Birds Space has much to do with it. Plus this opens a whole new perspective of partnerships with Rovio and their flagship videogame.
Fans of one, the other, or both, go get it on November 8th! Available on iOS and Android. In the meantime, check the trailer on Rovio’s YouTube channel.
