Rovio and company have been teasing Angry Birds Star Wars to no end since announcing the unlikely and somewhat strange crossover earlier this month.

However, it's all becoming clear to me now, after watching the first glimpse of actual gameplay in Angry Birds Star Wars, released by Rovio earlier today.

Using a lightsaber to slice through blocks? Using force pull to yank a giant AT-AT piggie's legs out from under them? Yeah, this looks rad. As we've learned previously, Angry Birds Star Wars is all set to launch on November 8th which is just next week, and we really can't wait to get our hands on it then.

    Dude, this game looks awesome! I totally didn't expect it to be like this.

    Leia can use the force?
    I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

    • Karzay

      *** Spoiler****

      She is the sister of Luke and daughter of Anakin. In the expanded universe, Luke teaches her the force.

        Lol while considerate of you, I find it funny that you made a spoiler alert for a movie from 1980. I say the statute of limitations is up on this one. If you haven't seen Star Wars yet, it's because you don't care. All bets are off now.

      • Karzay

        Probably so. Then again, people aren't born having already seen the ending to Star Wars, even though they might claim it's in their DNA. lol

    This game will be amazing!

    I was actually hoping for something a little more unique. Angry birds space changed the game a lot. I'm not sure this will do the same. Just looks like angry birds with some different powers.

    Will there be a 99 cent deathstar iap to blow....I mean clear the stage?

  • MarkyMarc

    My fingers are already poised to type in my iTunes password for purchase. Come on November 8th!

  • Mike

    Well played Angry Birds... Your universe domination is almost complete.

  • ducksFANjason

    Why did I doubt you Rovio? Each time you annouce an Angry Birds related game I think "No! I refuse to buy this one. I never even 3-starred the rest of them so it doesn't make sense to buy this one!" And then every time you make me eat crow... *Le sigh*

    What's with the shuffle puck cantina music? Lol

    • Acidbottle

      Before someone else corrects you .. it is shuffle puck cantina that "borrowed" the musical flavour from the Star Wars cantina band 😉

    • Agharta studio

      haha yes 😉 we remixed a song similar to the original cantina SW song... didn't think there would be a game using it in a close future!! 
      still, the song we have is just a look a like:)

      BTW , at the 2nd floor in shufflepuck cantina you can hear the theme the original shufflepuck café too

    I'm picking this up. Hopefully in a update we will get episode 1, 2, and 3

    • kendahlj

      Probably will happen but it won't be near as good as episodes 4, 5, and 6.

      • wizard96

        I doubt that will be good. Rovio will just add an ugly ass bird that can only go two feet towards the pigs, and does no structural damage against it, with no special powers. Just say no to it, rovio. Just say no.

      • Googlyhead

        Wut? A Jar-Jar bird?

  • ImJPaul

    This looks.......AWESOME!!!!

  • scdude

    God help us all

  • volodoscope

    Looks awesome!!!

    Were these YouTube videos in the TA app supposed to link to a YouTube page when clicked on? I realize that YouTube/google/flash are beneath apple to support, but this app is getting to be near useless when half the articles can't show their website equivalent content.

    • Googlyhead

      Plays as an embedded (yes, YouTube) vid for me.

  • Sojourn

    After the big Lucas/Disney announcement today, this feels even more surreal and strangely timely.

  • Tesla

    I wonder what happens now that Disney's the "parent" company and not Lucas Arts. I'm guessing the game's fine as is, but future updates will likely require Misney's consent (they own Marvel too, ZING!). Jeez, Disney's now one of the most powerful companies in the world.

  • Friv

    This game amazing!
