The casual-gaming juggernaut that is Angry Birds is set to combine with the undying power of Star Wars.  Rovio has announced Angry Birds Star Wars will arrive on iOS, Android, and Windows 8 PCs on November 8th.  The game will use the same gravitational physics as Angry Birds Space, but the birds will now be wearing the look of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and the other rebel forces, while the pigs will be represented by Darth Vader, storm troopers, and the Empire.  There will also be other tweaks like changes to the music and settings.  According to USA Today, “With Angry Birds Star Wars, merchandise sales will likely kick into hyperdrive. Clothing, toys and action figures will appear in stores about a week before the game becomes available.”

This will be the second Angry Birds-film crossover.  The popular video game tied in with last year’s Rio, which made sense because both properties feature birds.  Now, Angry Birds appears free to crossover with whatever property it wishes.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed for Angry Birds Battleship Potemkin.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer for Angry Birds Star Wars.
