Rovio Entertainment has revealed that the first Angry Birds Stella game will arrive in September this year.
The creator of the popular mobile gaming franchise has also detailed that a new Angry Birds Stella animation series will follow, premiering in November.
Angry Birds Stella will introduce a new flock of characters, including Stella, Poppy, Willow, Dahlia and Luca, who all share the same passion for adventure.
The upcoming game will follow the adventures of the group of friends among the treetops of Golden Island. Players will help the birds engage in battle with Gale – a bird hell-bent on ruling the island – and her pig servants.
Alongside the new game and animation, Rovio will also be delivering a host of consumer products including books, apparel, accessories and more.
The products will be launched at this year’s Las Vegas Licensing Expo.
“Angry Birds Stella is an inclusive brand that engages everybody, but also celebrates female heroism. It's all about friendship and the struggles of six very different personalities”, said Blanca Juti, CMO of Rovio Entertainment.
“The wonderful spirit of these fearless friends will shake things up across games, animations, books, consumer products and other fun content under the Angry Birds Stella brand.”
