And that’s a wrap, folks! This week saw the mighty Angry Birds slingshot all the way from Finland to the craziest desert city in the world for the 2018 Las Vegas International Licensing Expo. At this year’s show, team Rovio unleashed a furious flock of exciting announcements and new Angry Birds product tie-ins, headlined by our new animated feature film The Angry Birds Movie 2, set to land in September 2019.
Alongside our new tentpole movie, we revealed plans for a new long-form animated series for 2020, an Angry Birds competition TV series, fabulous new live stage shows, plus state-of-the-art location-based entertainment projects. And on top of all this we have original live action and animated content for the Angry Birds YouTube channel.
We also unveiled some amazing new Angry Birds swag that will delight millions of our global fans. We’re teaming up with some of the world’s greatest designers bringing fans a diverse range of cool new Angry Birds products. Some of these include a sumptuous range of Angry Birds branded Chupa Chups products, delectable Angry Birds fashionista footwear from Crocs, colorful bags, backpacks and lunch kits from FAB, frozen Angry Birds treats from Wells Dairy, and Jibbitz charms imbued with an Angry Birds twist.
What’s more, we’re bringing back a host of our beloved past offerings including Angry Birds clothing and accessories from Hybrid Promotions, Komar Kids, and Handcraft Manufacturing, school stationery from Inkology, frozen treats from Ziegenfelder, and toys from Toy Factory and Bulls I Toys.
For the US, we have new promotions coming later this year, including one with Sonic Restaurants and another with Hostess Brands, which’ll feature a special bonus you can redeem in the game Angry Birds Match!
If you can’t wait for this new cool merchandise to hit stores, then head on over to Angry Birds online store. This is just a taster of what’s yet to come from Rovio and the Angry Birds, all leading up to 2019 launch of The Angry Birds Movie 2 launch and the 10th anniversary of the first Angry Birds mobile game launch.
