Releasing a video, Rovio Entertainment and Lucasfilm have announced a continued collaboration on the Angry Birds Star Wars franchise with Angry Birds Star Wars II, which launches September 19th. The game will follow the story of the three prequel Star Wars movies, including the introduction of never-before-seen Angry Birds Star Wars characters. For the first time in history, players can choose to "Join the Pork Side" and play as one of the villainous pigs.
The TELEPODS line from Hasbro brings an additional interactive layer of gameplay and content to Angry Birds Star Wars II. In addition to the vast amount of content readily available in the game, new characters and super powers can be unlocked for players by placing one of the collectible TELEPODS physical characters from the Hasbro line on the phone or tablet camera and scanning it into the game. For the first time ever, players can choose which character they want to use in the app by "teleporting" their physical character into the game. Over thirty figures will be available at launch in September.
