Teaser image from Rovio suggests partnership with George Lucas' iconic science fiction space series.
The next destination for Rovio's Angry Birds appears to be a galaxy far, far away. Today, Rovio launched a new Tumblr account with an image that depicts what appears to be a bird from the franchise donning a Star Wars-esque robe and wielding a lightsaber.
The teaser page indicates more information on the mystery project will be shared at 8 a.m. on October 8, and specifically called out the Toys R Us location in New York City's Times Square.
If indeed there is an Angry Birds Star Wars game, it won't be the first licensed partnership for the series. Over the summer, Rovio teamed with rock band Green Day for 10-level episode based on the group. Additionally, the company launched Angry Birds Rio, a tie-in for Blue Sky Studios' 2011 animated film Rio.
