Netflix, entertainment distributor Cake and Rovio Entertainment have announced a new animated series called “Angry Birds: Summer Madness.”
“‘Angry Birds’ are about to smash the small screen, and we are thrilled to be making the journey with Netflix as our global partner,” says Ed Galton, chief communications officer and managing director, Cake.
This is the latest collaboration in a long-term partnership between Cake and Rovio, which includes Rovio’s library of non-dialogue shorts.
“‘Angry Birds’ animated content plays a key role in our long-term franchise strategy,” says Ville Heijari, chief marketing officer, Rovio. “After more than a decade in hit games, blockbuster movies and licensed products, this is the Angry Birds' first foray into a long-form series. We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Cake and can't wait to unveil the world of ‘Angry Birds: Summer Madness’ to viewers on Netflix."
“Angry Birds: Summer Madness” sees birds Red, Bomb and Chuck, as well as a cast of brand-new feathered friends, as tween birds at summer camp under the guidance of their counselor Mighty Eagle. Antics, pranks and summertime adventures will see the birds pushing boundaries and breaking rules while fending off the pigs on the other side of the lake.
“‘Angry Birds’ have been a true phenomenon for kids around the world and we’re excited to bring them home to the nest at Netflix where they will be angrier and bird-ier than ever,” says Curtis Lelash, director, original animated series, Netflix.
The 40 x 11 episode series will debut globally in 2021.
