There are some crossovers that make sense like Marvel Comics versus DC Comics or Nintendo versus Sega. The popular mobile game Angry Birds has conceptually worked well in the past with the bird-centric animated film Rio. Now it's on a collision course with a little movie franchise known as Star Wars.



Rovio announced the Angry Birds Star Wars earlier today which will make for the fifth entry in the bird-flinging franchise. Characters will be dressed as iconic figures like Princess Leia and Darth Vader set against stages built after the sci-fi space opera. Who wants to bet you blow up a structure built like the Death Star, with well-placed explosive crates in the middle of course, during the final level?

Chief marketing officer Peter Vesterbacka had this to say in regards to the crossover.

"This is the best Angry Birds game we've ever done. It's the best parts of Angry Birds with all new cutting-edge gameplay set in a galaxy far, far away. As a big Star Wars fan myself, I'm really excited about this new universe. The Force is definitely strong with this one."



With this announcement, we started thinking, "Why stop at Star Wars?" Here are a number of other movie crossovers that Rovio could consider next.
