Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm have teamed up for an Angry Birds/Star Wars collaboration that will see a new game and merchandise range.

The “Angry Birds Star Wars,” set to launch worldwide Nov. 8, will combine “Angry Birds” and “Angry Birds Space” with the characters, stories and settings from the Star Wars franchise.

From the deserts of Tatooine to the depths of the Death Star, the game and merchandise will feature Angry Birds characters restyled as the iconic heroes of the space saga.

A massive retail launch for the co-branded game will begin on Oct. 28 and include Halloween costumes, apparel, action figures, collectible plush toys and more.

“Both Star Wars and Angry Birds share the instant and irresistible appeal of hands-on fun,” says Colum Slevin, vice president, head of studio operations, Lucasfilm. “People seem to instinctively know what to do when handed a lightsaber or a bird in a slingshot, so this is a natural combination.”

The “Angry Birds Star Wars” game will be available for iOS, Android, Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone and Windows 8 platforms.
