That’s right kids. One of the biggest “casual” hits of 2010 is crossing boundaries. Angry Birds is getting an animated cartoon that’s being worked on right now by Rovio.
“It was a completely new area for us; we had to get our bearings there, and a sense of how the whole market was. 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.”
No word yet on if the cartoon is being developed for television or an internet broadcast, or who will be showing it. I’m willing to bet they won’t have any trouble finding somebody to air it though, all they’ll have to do is show them the sales on the game and BOOM. I could see this working as an Adult Swim show if they did it right, or something on Nickelodeon perhaps.
