Rovio has announced that they are going to launch an animated television series based on their Angry Birds franchise.
The first of the episodes would be broadcast later this year.
The company said:
We’re going to roll out a weekly animation series later this year of shortform content. We’re going to roll it out on all possible devices. We’re looking at building a video app for that, and we’re also looking at partnerships and so on… We want to be on all screens.
Rovio had acquired animation studio Kombo last year which should help them in getting this done right.
A movie is also planned but it is unlikely to be released before 2015.
