ANGRY BIRDS, the puzzle video game in which players use a slingshot to launch birds at pigs arranged on a series of precarious structures, is set to be adapted into a cartoon, according to the game's creators. The smartphone phenomenon, described by the Uk's Guardian newspaper as being "the most addictive waste of time ever", has been downloaded over 50 million times making it one of the most successful games across any platform.
Angry Birds is developed by the Finland based 'Rovio Mobile', and the company's chief executive Mikael Hed has confirmed plans to turn the game into a cartoon, he told C21media.net, "We have been looking at that for quite a while, and that is definitely one of my personal big focus areas right now - to work on broadcast content for Angry Birds" A board game titled 'Angry Birds: Knock on Wood' has already been confirmed for release in May 2011 and there has recently been speculation of a stop-motion animation feature film. Hed added that Roxio have already researched the Hollywood market for a potential broadcast deal, saying, "That was the first part of the exercise, and now that we've done that, the next part is to move into production, and that's where we are right now".
The news comes after the Uk's Metro newspaper reported that a Lego enthusiast named Tsang Yiu Keung had created large models of the 'Angry Birds' and posted pictures of them on his Facebook page earlier this week.
