How the art of ‘Angry Birds Star Wars’ blended two pop-culture juggernauts
Like many of my compatriots at The Verge, I felt a certain amount of trepidation towards Angry Birds Star Wars. I’m far from a dedicated fan of either franchise, but without context, the images of Han Solo and Luke Skywalker as humanoid birds seemed somewhere between tacky and downright creepy. It wouldn’t be the first time that Rovio had created a movie tie-in – that would be 2011’s fairly successful Angry Birds Rio – but the Star Wars franchise isn’t above misguided cash-grabs, and its elements range from critically acclaimed to universally loathed.
