Angry Birds Star Wars came as a bit of a surprise. While it makes sense that Rovio, which has turned its Angry Birds games into a merchandising powerhouse, would team up with the biggest merchandising property in history, there really wasn’t any warning that LucasArts and Rovio were teaming up before the teaser image appeared on the Angry Birds Twitter feed.

Rovio has already released several teaser videos in which the Angry Birds appear in classic Star War scenes. Today, the company released the first gameplay footage of Angry Birds Star Wars. It offers a tiny glimpse at what the powers of the birds, who take on the role of Star Wars characters, will be.

The new trailer shows Luke (the red bird) slicing through sand piggies’ constructions with his father’s lightsaber and Leia (the pink bird) using a tractor beam-like device to foil the Imperial piggies’ attack on Hoth.

    The power of only 2 birds are depicted in this first gameplay video . Both of the birds have come with an amazing power right from the laser sword of red bird to the tractor beam of pink bird . Eagerly waiting for its launch now .
    @admin – will there be any more gameplay video before the launch ??

        @Avery Glendenning – FYI lightsaber is also called as Lazer sword . I guess you haven’t read the post written above and watched the first gameplay video .
