Jar Jar Binks Joins Angry Birds Star Wars 2

Rovio Entertainment has released nine character trailers for Angry Birds Star Wars 2. The characters include Jar Jar Binks, Jedi Youngling, Luke Skywalker Jedi, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker Endor, Droideka, TIE Fighter Pilot, Zam Wesell and Emperor Palpatine. You can watch all nine videos on the official Rovio Entertainment YouTube page.

Angry Birds Star Wars 2 will be available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices on September 19. The game will be $0.99 to download and will feature additional toys that can be bought separately and used to unlock certain characters within the game. Angry Birds will be the third video game plus toy line released this year. Earlier this month, Disney launched its own iPad app to tie-in with its Disney Infinity video game, which also includes NFC-enabled collectible action figures.

Both Angry Bird Star Wars 2 and Disney Infinity are modeled after Activision's popular Skylanders franchise. The third Skylanders game entitled SWAP Force will be available for the Nintendo 3DS, Wii, Wii U, PS3/4, and Xbox 360/One on October 13.
