Angry Birds Star Wars is now available for Android, iOS, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone, and Windows 8

Angry Birds recently made its way into space, but now, it's taking that venture to a whole new level in the latest game, Angry Birds Star Wars.

Rovio Entertainment, maker of Angry Birds, and Lucasfilm Ltd., the film and production company responsible for "Star Wars," have partnered on a new Angry Birds game that sends the famous birds and pigs into the world's most famous epic space opera.

“It’s a banner day for us,” said Peter Vesterbacka, CMO of Rovio Entertainment. “This is our best Angry Birds game yet, and we’re excited for our fans to finally meet Luke, Leia, and the rest of the gang! But it’s more than just a game launch: we think fans are going to just love the new animated trailer and the Angry Birds Star Wars products, sure to be a big hit this holiday season.”

The game has over 80 levels in famous "Star Wars" locations like Tatooine as well as new areas like the Pig Star. The game follows a battle between the Rebel Birds and the evil Imperial Pigs, where the birds must face Pigtroopers and Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Pigs.

Gameplay includes use of the force and light sabers for a true "Star Wars" feel.

“We can’t wait for fans around the world to experience the fun of launching the Angry Birds characters into the 'Star Wars' universe,” said Colum Slevin, Vice President, Head of Studio Operations for Lucasfilm Ltd. “This is the kind of creative partnership that has helped Star Wars remain vibrant and beloved for over 35 years.”

Angry Birds Star Wars is now available for Android, iOS, Amazon Kindle Fire, Mac, PC, Windows Phone, and Windows 8.

It was recently announced that Disney bought Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion USD from "Star Wars" creator George Lucas. The deal includes a new trilogy, consisting of Episodes VII, VIII and IX.

New movies will never be good enough

No matter how good the new Star Wars movies are loads of people (probably a majority) will say they are crap and a disgrace to the original trilogy. I have news for all those people, no movie will ever be able the recreate the emotional response you now associate with the episodes 4-6. You were most likely a child when you saw the original movies and it left an emotional imprint that has been fortified by the staying power of the franchise. I have heard from many older people that they feel the same way about episodes 5 and 6 because episode 4 had such an impact on them in 1977.

Personally I am in the middle. I was very young when I first saw the original trilogy and probably watched them more than a dozen times before episode 1 came out. I was still young enough to enjoy Episode 1 which Lucas has adamantly said was made for children. Recently I watched all 6 films in order starting with episode 1 and while I recognize that 1-3 leave a lot to be desired I can remember the emotional response I had as a child and still enjoy it. My wife, who is from Brazil and had never seen any of the movies before, liked all 6 about equally. She had no built in prejudice from her childhood about what Star Wars should be.

Just wait until Disney decide to remake episodes 4, 5 and 6. You know they'll do it, once Lucas pops his clogs.

The fanboy meltdown will likely destroy the internet!

While I personally disagree with them, the order my 4 and 7 seven year old boys would rate them would be episodes 3,2,6,5,4,1.
