Rovio are gearing up for a feature animation adaptation of their popular Angry Birds franchise. In the meantime, the studio are stretching their animation legs with a series of new animated shorts.The first in the series, revolving around the game's yellow bird, Chuck, debuted over the weekend on all Angry Birds games. To watch it, head on over to any one of those games (they're free to download on Android) and click on the Toons button. Check out a sneak peak below.
I've checked the short out myself, and it's pretty fun. Obviously, it's no Looney Tunes (although that does seem to be the tone it's trying to strike), and it's clearly going to be more entertaining for kids than the rest of us. But there are a few laughs to be had, and the very short runtime means the limited story doesn't factor in - I'm still not sure how a feature film's going to work though. The second short debuts this weekend.
Seen the first short? Let us know what you thought of it below!
