Angry Birds Star Wars teaser shows the Millennium Falcon [VIDEO]

If there’s one commonality that can be found among a crowd of geeks, it’s an unexplainable affinity for the universe that is known as Star Wars. Hell, some people bought the R2-D2 version of the Motorola DROID 2 despite already owning the original.

Rovio announced Angry Birds Star Wars would be here November 8th, and our beloved Han Solo made a reference to one of the most memorable lines in the dual trilogy in the game’s latest teaser.

He mentions his Millennium Falcon and does well to remind us that it’s the same ship that that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs (remember, a unit to measure distance, not time). However many light-years it took to make that trip is still up in the air, but regardless we’re not here for that discussion.

Instead, we’re here to talk about the video you see above where Rovio cuts from the short clip to a representation of the Millennium Falcon in the style of Angry Birds’ world! This could mean many things, though without much information on how this game will evolve the core Angry Birds gameplay it’d be foolish to bank on any one possibility.

My vote goes to the ability to call the Millennium Falcon and Han Solo in to obliterate clone trooper pigs, but perhaps that’s a bit of a wet dream compared to what we’re really going to get.

Let us know what you think in the comments below, and we’ll all be finding out what this exciting title has to offer once it jumps to hyper speed and races to the Google Play Store November 8th.

    Love the digression about the Parsec!

    • JMMBUTLER

      The digression was amusing until he implied that a lightyear is a measurement of time, betraying how little he really understands about space travel. Geek fail. (A lightyear is the distance that light can travel in one year.)

    Star Wars Angry Birds? As if the Star Wars brand wasn’t tarnished enough by Jar Jar and you gotta love this…the Star Wars Holiday Special.

    Starring R2D2 as…R2D2!
    (there are several other parts but I think you’ll probably kill yourself before getting up to part 2)

  • Michael Thompson

    Again, Star Wars has pretty much imploded upon itself at this point so Angry Birds couldn’t possibly do it any harm.
    Whatever on both anymore.
