Rovio has hit upon a merchandising goldmine in the form of Angry Birds Star Wars, set for release on 8 November (and perhaps developed a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away).

Two worlds will collide with the release of the latest addition to the Angry Birds series, and it won’t stop at apps.

Rovio has promised a range of toys, animations and other goodies to come with the release of Angry Birds Star Wars, telling users to keep an eye on the Angry Birds Tumblr for behind-the-scenes contents, comics, and more.

A launch of the new game is due to happen today at Toys R Us in Times Square, New York.

The latest spin-off follows hot on the heels of the success of Bad Piggies, which shot to No 1 in the iOS App Store just hours after its release. It would be a safe bet to expect Angry Birds Star Wars to rocket to the top just as fast.
