Rovio Releases New Angry Birds Star Wars Trailer Featuring Original Star Wars Content [VIDEO]
As part of their upcoming Angry Birds Star Wars series, Rovio has just uploaded a new trailer for the game. The developer had recently announced that Angry Birds Star Wars will be coming to iOS, Android, Mac, PC and Windows Phone 8 on November 8th.
This new trailer from Rovio features original scenes from the Star Wars series, but with a little bit of Angry Birds flavor. In the video you will see Han Solo and Obi-Wan Kenobi approaching the Death Star. This scene is from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Speaking to Mashable, Ville Heijari, vice president of franchise development at Rovio stated:
This is one of the few times Lucasfilm has allowed for such use of the original material, and we feel the end result is creative, powerful, and most importantly a lot of fun for fans of both Angry Birds and Star Wars.
That is very much true. Lucasfilm doesn’t usually let anyone use their footage just like that. It looks like the tie-up between Rovio and Star Wars is huge and the game will also be something new. The company has already launched new Angry Birds Star Wars merchandise; now all we need is that game. Check out the trailer below:
Rovio will release 8 trailers in total, along with a three-minute short film. What did you think of this one? The Death Star is certainly something I’m looking forward to in the game.
