Peter Vesterbacka, CMO of Rovio Entertainment, said: "This is our best Angry Birds game yet, and we’re excited for our fans to finally meet Luke, Leia, and the rest of the gang! But it’s more than just a game launch: we think fans are going to just love the new animated trailer and the Angry Birds Star Wars products, sure to be a big hit this holiday season."

The game follows-on from Bad Piggies which gave the Angry Bird's arch enemies the lime light. Angry Birds Star Wars includes 80 levels, new game mechanics, the ability to level up birds and the usual free updates and hidden goodies.

"We can’t wait for fans around the world to experience the fun of launching the Angry Birds characters into the Star Wars universe," said Colum Slevin, head of studio operations for Lucasfilm.
