‘Angry Birds’ Cartoon To Hit Television Screens Soon
The addictive ‘Angry Birds’ game is going to be made into a TV cartoon by year-end, says company Rovio.
"We're going to roll out a weekly animation series later this year of shortform content," Rovio's head of animation, Nick Dorra, said at the MIPTV conference in Cannes, France, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The series will consist of 52 episodes lasting between two-and-a-half to three minutes each.
While Rovio is currently producing the series in its in-house Finnish studios, Dorra said the company is seeking co-production partners.
The show will also be made available for mobile phones and iPads.
"We want to be on all screens," he added.
‘Angry Birds Space’ has hit over 10 million downloads in just three days since its release. With this new venture and the upcoming ‘Angry Birds Land’ theme park, it seems Rovio wants to make it more than just a game.
"Angry Birds is not just about the gameplay, and will be in the future less and less about the slingshot, actually, and more and more about the characters," Dorra said.
