Editor's Pick

As teased earlier via a mysterious Tumblr, Angry Birds is confirming that it's partnerning with Star Wars in a new video game, set to launch Nov. 8.

The characters from the Rovio franchise will be combined with the plots and characters from the George Lucas saga, set in a galaxy far, far, away. Rovio's VP of franchise development, Ville Heijari, told ABC News that Red Bird will be Luke Skywalker, while other birds will take on different roles -- and powers -- of their Star Wars counterparts. "Our teams have collaborated in creating the perfect mashup of Star Wars characters and Angry Birds characters," Heijari said.

The game will be available on Android, Kindle, iOS, Mac, PC, and Windows Phone.
