Angry Birds Rio Headed to Android in March, Will Contain 45 New Levels

Look, I love Angry Birds as much as anyone, but a motion picture based off of the game?  Seems like a little much, only that’s exactly what the plan is from Rovio and 20th Century Fox.  Fortunately for all of us, this movie means that a new game called Angry Birds Rio is on the way and will include 45 new levels plus a bunch of regular updates.  The game is expected to be available on multiple platforms including Android some time in March.

Anyone had enough AB or did this just make your weekend?

    I loved the original game, played until my battery died on several occasions.
    Seasons was good, but gave up on it about a third into it.

    Glad it is still around, but I have moved on.. to much anger in the world as it is.

    Damn. Those are some angry birds

  • ReoBird

    I’m shaking… I can’t wait for new birds. I have started playing it all over again trying to beat my old numbers.

    I just wish the Android version got better attention from the developers. Having to boomerang a bird behind an ad is not cool. Having the last golden egg bug for so long is not caring. Having to watch iapples walkthroughs that don’t work the same way is insulting.

    Wait… what are you talking about? they’re not making a feature film… They’re making a feature film called Rio http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_(film) which comes out in april… and they’re making a game to market it coming out in march… not a movie based on angry birds.

    this was taken from the description of the youtube video.. they’re not making a movie.

    This is clearly a tie-in to a movie, not an AB movie. Me thinks someone didn’t take an extra 20 seconds to hunt down the RIO movie poster.

    I saw a news story on TV the other day about Angry Birds and people’s obsession with it. They mentioned the fact that people can play it anytime and anywhere, like waiting in line. It’s an extremely easy game to pick up and play and I think that’s the main draw. Your grandparents can play it. Also, it’s humorous, light hearted and appeals to just about anyone. So cheers to Rovio for milking it out as much as they can and not charging for it on Android. You know you’ve hit the jackpot when someone turns your video game into a board game. I know the movie will be a success too, I probably won’t watch it but a ton of kids and their parents most likely will.

    I am excited…been waiting for some new levels to play….

  • Buckgrad

    The game is addictive…but the ad placement over the play area is not good. Hopefully they will fix that. Will I play the new one? Hate to admit it, but sure I will.

    One word: Wow.

  • Jawshua

    Well I’m definitely up for some new levels but not interested at all in an Angry Birds movie.

    Oh and as a warning, I don’t think they’ve released it on Android yet, but I bought it on my iPod and the Angry Birds huge Eagle add on is garbage. Don’t buy it, all it does I is allow you to have a gigantic eagle swoop in and crush everything on the board so you can skip a board you’re having trouble on. Totally not worth paying for. If they had added a new playable bird with a new power it world have been fun but sadly this does nothing good.

    I’ve never understood the popularity of this game. It’s a fine game but talk about over the top hype.

      Whoever created this game should be livin’ in a big ol’ mansion somewhere, sittin’ in a hot tub, soakin’ up the good life with his soul mate.

      Totally agree with this statement, Angry Birds is good but there are far better games than this, It is over marketed. Whenever i go to itunes with my touch or with the program, the first game is always angry birds !

      Me neither, I’ve seen a lot of better games las year.

  • Ben

    Actually..I don’t think the movie is based on the game. The special version of Angry birds is based on the movie, rather than the other way around.

    I guess I’m the only one who is sick of Angry Birds. I had a lot of fun with it, but it became boring trying the same level 10+ times.

    If this movie is a box office hit, it will be a sad day for the country. All the movies that never get picked up by a studio and then one that is based on a smartphone app does.

      Youre loud and wrong. The movie, ICE AGE:Rio is based on the multi million dollar selling movie series. It sold before angry birds, this is just Rovio getting creative while marketing themselves better. Youre welcome.

  • Kevoskee

    People will be more distracted with playing Angry Birds and texting on their phones at the movies. Should come straight to Blu-ray imo

  • Salsa_33

    Off topic…but has anyone tried the Angry Birds mini-game on PS3?

    • Jawshua

      No but I got it on my Imac now and it’sa lot of fun on my huge screen.

    I cannot wait!!!! Dont care about a movie or tv show but been sittin on 3 stars on all levels on both! I want new levels!

  • Mr. Steve

    Now the real big question is when the frick is the Mighty Eagle coming to Android!??

    • Jawshua

      Don’t buy it! Read my description of it, you’ll totally be let down if you buy it! I have it on my iPod and it’s not a new bird that your realty play with it just clears the whole level in one see swoop so you can skip to the next level no skill needed. Complete waste of money!

  • Mr. Steve

    The movie is not based off of Angry Birds. The movie is called Rio and was scheduled to be released in April months ago. All of this is Rovio teaming up with the production team behind Rio.

      seems like a small mistake by our man kellex… but hes a busy dude so i forgive him.
      Or is the movie really inspired by/based off of angry birds ? Please clarify broseph.

        I’m convinced that the movie is just a movie and the game is a partnership between Rovio and Fox to market the movie.
