Angry Birds gets an animated series Rovio has announced today that it will be creating an animated series based on its popular Angry Birds game.
The series will be weekly starting in Autumn, with 52 episodes planned. Each episode will be about 2.5-3 minutes long.

Says Rovio animation boss Nick Dorra: "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."

One such partnership is the deal Rovio announced at CES with Samsung to have a Rovio channel on all new Samsung SmartTV web-connected TVs.

The new announcement comes six months after the developer purchased Finnish animation studio Kombo.

Dorra also hinted that an Angry Birds movie is coming, but not until after 2014.

I would say that there is about a fifty percent chance of the failing. I can just see the same thing happening to the series as what happened to the attempted Gieco Caveman Sitcom. It just didn't take off. Heh.
