Move over Furby! Rovio Entertainment is preparing to announce what will surely be one of the hottest selling holiday toys this year. Rovio and Lucasfilm will unveil an Angry Birds / Star Wars toy line at 10:00AM ET in Times Square, New York City. An image of a Star Wars themed Angry Birds Jenga Death Star was leaked this weekend. Various sources have also reported that a Star Wars themed Angry Birds game for iOS and Android devices is in development.
Little is known about the game, but we do know the red bird will be Luke Skywalker. I assume the Angry Birds will be battling pigs dressed as Stormtroopers on planets like Tatooine and Hoth. Rovio will also be making the big announcement at the Toys R Us Times Square location, making me wonder if the toy lineup will be a Jeffrey the Giraffe exclusive?
This is not the first Angry Birds tie-in, Rovio Entertainment previously released an Angry Birds meets Green Day Facebook app.
