A little later than originally planned, but Rovio's Angry Birds animated series is finally taking flight; a weekly Angry Birds Toons animated series will launch on the weekend beginning 16th March.
The series, as of yet, has no TV airing deal in the US or the UK, so will air online - not a bad thing given the billion views Rovio's YouTube videos have already amassed in total. The game-turned-series' blog broke the news, giving a brief synopsis too:
"Angry Birds Toons is an all-new animated series that throws the doors to Piggy Island wide open! For the first time ever, you can get up close and personal with your favorite characters. Join us every week starting the weekend of March 16th for a brand new episode featuring the latest adventures of the birds and pigs!"
This is presumably stage one in preparing audiences for the Angry Birds feature film coming in just three years. We'll keep you informed.
