‘Angry Birds’ to Battle Pigs In Cartoon Form

Angry birds

Having just conquered space, ‘Angry Birds‘ is branching out into the world of animation. Pigs, you have been duly warned. 

Starting this fall, game developer Rovio will begin releasing 52 two-and-a-half to three minute cartoons featuring the exploits of the ill-tempered fowl.

“We’re going to roll it out on all possible devices,” Nick Dorra, Rovio’s head of animation, explained. “We want to be on all screens.”

According to Dorra, the series will explore the “deeper thoughts, deeper feelings of the characters, such as, ‘why are they always angry?’.”

With over 700 million combined downloads on all platforms, ‘Angry Birds’  is arguably the most successful app of all-time. But the Finland-based Rovio has increasingly made it clear that their corporate model is Disney, and they want to be ultimately known as an entertainment company, not just a game designer.

To that end, there are also plans to release an ‘Angry Birds’ movie, either in 2013 and 2014.

So what do you think? Do you want to know what everybody’s favorite pig-hating birds are really thinking? Or are you happy to just fling them so gracefully through the air?
