Rovio “moving into production” with Angry Birds animated series

Soon, you’ll be able to watch Angry Birds while playing Angry Birds, cuddling Angry Birds, and keeping nice and toasty with your Angry Birds Snuggie.

Ok, that last one isn’t real, but let’s be realistic here: it’s only a matter of time.

“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, ” Rovio CEO Mikael Hed told C21media (as reported by New York Post).

“It was a completely new area for us; we had to get our bearings there, and a sense of how the whole market was,” he added. “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.”

As for which screen Angry Birds is slingshotting its way onto – TV, the Internet, or both – Hed didn’t say. Regardless, at least it’s not live-action.
