Will we see Angry Birds dressed as Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker as they battle it out with their light sabres when the new line of toys are released?
Probably not – but it would be fun!
Hasbro has teamed up with Rovio Entertainment and Lucas Licensing to launch a new line of products based on the Angry Birds Star Wars game.
New toys to be launched are likely to include the AT-AT Attack Battle Game.
John Frascottie, chief marketing officer at Hasbro said “We’ve developed a selection of innovative toys and games featuring Angry Birds Star Wars that delivers new way to ply for fans of these two great franchises. We’re proud of our heritage of delivering Star Wars toys that have entertained generations of kids, and we’re excited to offer fans of both Star Wars and Angry Birds the opportunity to experience their favourite characters and icons in exhilarating new ways.”
Kids (and adults) will love this new themed version of the popular Angry Birds catapult game which this time will be a space based version and the birds will be replaced by stars such as Luke and Leia while the pigs will be led by a piggy Darth Vader.
Angry Birds with a Star Wars theme? We can’t wait!
