Following in the steps of Bad Piggies and Angry Birds Go!, Rovio has announced another spin-off of their wildly popular Angry Birds franchise entitled Angry Birds Stella.
This announcement encompasses more than just another game though, as the company revealed that they are already working on an animated series based around the spin-off. Rovio has previously partnered with animation studio Kombo in order to release both Angry Birds Toons and an upcoming series based around Bad Piggies.
Centring around the titular pink bird and her new set of feathered friends, Stella will focus on bringing messages of “inspiration, empowerment and other real issues” to its intended audience. The Finnish developer has also revealed that this new project will delve further into the world of the franchise and into parts we have never seen before.
Rovio Entertainment CEO Mikael Hed elaborated a little more on what Angry Birds Stella will bring to the table
“Angry Birds Stella is breaking the mold by introducing strong, passionate characters who really stand for something, while adding plenty of action and reality into the mix. The Angry Birds Stella story will live and evolve across physical and digital, bridging them in fun and innovative ways. Stella and her friends are here to stay, with plenty of adventures ahead of them.”
It’s funny to think that back when Angry Birds first burst onto the scene, most thought it would just be another flash in the pan that would fade out over time. Yet here we are, over four years since the original app was released, and the series continues to pump out new products and licensing deals. Kudos has to be given to Rovio for taking such a simple idea and turning it into a multimedia empire.
We will continue to have coverage of Angry Birds Stella in the coming months. For now though, tell us, is anyone interested in learning more about the world of this popular Finnish series? Let us know in the comments section below.
