Angry Birds Meet Star Wars

Oh, you're still in the funk with Disney buying LucasFilm, are you? Well, this should get you out of that pretty quickly.

It seems that Angry Birds will come out with a Star Wars-themed game! Yup!

To quote from Rovio Entertainment's press release, the game follows "a plucky group of Rebel birds in their fight against the evil Imperial Pigs." Players will get to "use the Force, wield a Lightsaber, and blast away Pigtroopers on an intergalactic journey from the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Pig Star."

"Angry Birds Star Wars" features more than 80 levels. Successful players will eventually face off against a porcine version of Darth Vader.
I'm sure this deal was inked before the sale, but this will be very interesting to see how Disney will handle it. Don't forget that Disney has at least 2 physics-based games with Swampy and Perry the Platypus.
