More Angry Birds Star Wars On The Way 02 Aug, 2013 / 8 comments

Remember Angry Birds Star Wars? It was basically Angry Birds Space with force powers, lightsabers, and blasters, but it turned out to actually be pretty fun. Since it was a critical and financial success, it only makes sense that fans would be seeing more. And you will be. You... will... be.

In October, a revamped version of the original Angry Birds Star Wars will be coming out on pretty much every current console, from the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U, to the handheld 3DS and PSP Vita, and even the original Wii. These versions will feature cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes and 20 new levels.

On top of that, this September, Rovio will be releasing Angry Birds Star Wars II, which will feature new levels and new characters with powers inspired by the Star Wars prequel films. And yes, there will be toys released that tie-in to Angry Birds Star Wars II as well. This is Disney we're talking about after all.

    No, that's just when the deal was announced. The deal was completed on December 21, 2012.

    Oh. you're right. Thanks. I'll fix my post.

    That's actually way after the deal was finalized.

    The purchase was announced on October 30, 2012. In fact, Disney was already making changes at LucasArts by that point, as you can see by the update at the bottom of that article, where the company's shift to licensing was already mentioned by Disney CEO Robert Iger.

    Disney didn't approve the original one. It was announced before the Disney merger announcement.

    True, it was announced before the Disney buyout. It was released after LucasArts was under Disney control though. So it was approved by the Disney LucasArts. They could have axed it if they didn't approve of it (many projects have been cancelled when they are almost complete after a management change).

    It was released on November 8, 2012 which was way before any deal was finalized.
