"Star Wars II" Being Unveiled in "Angry Birds"
The sequel to the hit mobile game, which has been downloaded more than 100 million times, will launch in September.
Angry Birds Star Wars II will bow Sept. 19, Rovio announced on its website Monday. The sequel, another cooperation with Star Wars producers Lucasfilm, will again combine figures from the sci-fi universe with the physics-based bird-tossing game play that have made Rovio rich.
Rovio is also teaming up with toy-makers Hasbro on the new game, providing licensing tie-ins that will be promoted at Comic-Con in San Diego this week.
An animated 3D features based on the Angry Birds gaming franchise has been set up at Sony Pictures with delivery planned for July, 2016.
