(NASDAQ: HAS) has announced today it has entered into agreement with LucasFilm to manufacture and globally market a variety of products based on the newly launched STAR WARS edition of the wildly popular ANGRY BIRDS mobile game from Rovio Entertainment. The new ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS line from Hasbro will launch in the beginning of November 2012.
The following press release was sent out this morning about the new Star Wars Angry Birds game and merchandise to be globally released on November 8th.
It doesn't look like you have to wait until Monday and Times Square to see what the marriage of Star Wars and Angry Birds looks like. The website Idle Hands has posted some photos of what Hasbro has in store including a Jenga game and an AT-AT Attack Battle Game. For Star Wars collectors, the item which will probably strike the most interest is the Angry Birds "Early Bird" package that's clearly inspired by the iconic Kenner release from the 70's which launched the most prolific movie toy line in history.
Since 2009, Rovio's Angry Birds has been a bonafide pop cultural sensation. The game and its fun, cartoonish characters have crossed over into apparel, plush, food, beverages, books, and television. Today, a teaser posted on the Angry Birds Tumblr page suggests Jedi cloaks, lightsabers, and much more.
