Rovio today announced (http://www.rovio.com/en/news/blog/338/announcing-angry-birds-star-wars-ii-coming-september-19) the Septmeber 19 debut of "Angry Birds Star Wars II", building on the success of the original partnership (http://appshopper.com/games/angry-birds-star-wars) between Rovio and Lucasfilm.The new game will tackle the prequels, introducing a wide roster of never-before-seen Angry Birds Star Wars characters. The best part? You'll get to play with over 30 of them!

At this point we will not comment on rumors or speculation that Jar Jar Binks will be in the game.6DKNKI27GdA
Interestingly, the launch will come alongside new interactive toys from Hasbro known as "Telepods" (http://www.hasbro.com/starwars/en_US/angry-birds-telepods.cfm) that will allow players to scan the 30 different figures to add them to the game and allow players to customize the birds being fired on a given level.TELEPODS lets you teleport your figures into the new ANGRY BIRDS STAR WARS II app!

You can also launch your Rebel Bird figures in real life to topple the evil pig Empire.

Collect more than 30 teleport-able figures!

I hate angry birds. Aways have... Always will. It's completely overrated, and I'll never understand why it's so popular. I've downloaded it many times throughout the years trying to give it a chance... but it's just so terrible.

Yeah. it took me many months (Maybe even a year+) after downloading the free version to play it. never got THAT into it.

I have however, DL other FREE versions of the full game when they go on sale/free, but have yet to get into those.

It's Angry Birds meets Skylanders. I wonder how far they will go with the characters.

This pretty much sums up my angry birds experience as well. Plants vs zombies always held my attention more

Business wise, it makes more sense to milk the franchise. This is what happens when small studios lose their passion for game development.

But hey they gotta do what they can to rake in the profits.

How dare they try to make money! Only Apple should be permitted to!

Obviously someone out there really enjoys these games to the max.

Good for them that a new version is coming out.

How about start designing the next big hit, Rovio ?

I am very happy about this news.

But to all those saying it's just 'milking' the same idea I say no! It's Star Wars, so if anything it's blue milking. :D

This is also a lot like what many people say about Star Wars, especially the prequels, so it's obviously a match made in heaven. :)

damn I wish I funded Star Wars when it was being made, not that I was alive in the 70's but what a money making franchise that has turned out to be. Going to be 3 more films too.

Does this mean we'll get an AB Star Wars released for each of the Star Wars Films now...

Keep milking that horse Rovio. In the mean time, your competitors are working on new games instead of recycling the LUA level script (FYI it takes like a minute to make your own Angry Birds levels).

Then they released Angry Birds Space, and things were pretty okay after all.

I don't know what's worse, another Angry Birds game or the fact that it's based on the crappy Star Wars prequels. The next one better be based on Star Trek. Give me a Kirk bird, a Spock bird, Romulan pig, Klingon pig, Borg pig and maybe a bald eagle bird (Picard).

Too many upgrades, bonuses, power-ups, etc. I miss the days when Angry Birds was a combination of pixel-point-perfection and angle/power with a little bit of luck.

I'll just wait til this goes free again, either from the app store itself or thru Starbucks

I don't really care about 'milking' or not. Anyone could say people are milking a franchise that has a lot of games and gets another game.

I'm happy about this and will enjoy the game for what it is and not worry about what Rovia 'could' have made instead. That's just silly.

Wow, you are telling a company how to make money, next thing you will say is "Keep milking that horse McDonalds, enough restaurants already", and just so you know, they have other games, Amazing Alex, Bad Piggies and The Croods.

While you are here on a forum complaining about Rovio milking Angry Birds, they are making millions of dollars each month.

And as long as Angry Birds "X" keeps making them money, yes, they will keep on doing it.

I've got the original Angry Birds, Space, Rio, Star Wars. I'm like, ok, I get it. Don't need this one. I'm going to pick up Tiny Thief when it goes on sale though.

1. Partner with Ubisoft to make Angry Birds' Creed.
2. Partner with Activision to create Angry Skylanders and Call of Duty 5: Angry War Birds.
3. Partner with Blizzard to add Angry Birds as a mini game in World of WarCraft. That'll cause those subscription numbers to soar again, Blizzard.

All joking aside, these games are an interesting distraction. Unfortunately, it's hard to change something so simple to make it less repetitive. Hopefully Rovio has something new and different in the pipeline.

they are just stretching the angry birds games as much as they can which is resulting in boring games and it also destroys the awesome image of the original angry birds.

Same here. Maybe its popularity has to do something with people average IQ level.

I'm trying to think what all these characters would do in the game?.....

Kirk....gesture pigs to death
Spock....think pigs to death
Picard.....quote pigs to death
