Angry Birds Star Wars Return of the Jedi Update Coming Soon (Leaked Image)

Angry Birds Star Wars Return of the Jedi Moon of Endor Leaked Image
Amidst the hype of Angry Birds Star Wars II, which will be released on September 19th, Rovio refuses to neglect their existing apps. We have already seen updates to Bad Piggies and Angry Birds Rio in the past week, and a few other updates are known to be coming soon (such as the original and Space).

In their Angry Birds Star Wars II announcement Rovio stated that Luke Sky-squawker was not done, and this is the first known image — exclusive to ABN (thanks!) — from the forthcoming Return of the Jedi update. The exact release date is still unknown, but it’s probably safe to assume it will exiting lightspeed in the next couple of weeks.

If you recall the story line, the porkpire has built a second Death Star not far from the Forest Moon of Endor. The shield generator that protects this massive battle station resides on the moon, so the rebels have to take it out if they have any hope of destroying the Death Star. The Endor Moon is the home of the cute and cuddly Ewoks (okay, not all of them are so cute), which help the rebels in their battle to defeat the porkpire and destroy the shield generator.

Based on the image above it looks like we will be thrown into the middle of this epic battle. Thankfully, the fearless Ewoks our on our side and have constructed one of their ingenious traps. Oblivious to the danger the pigtroopers have taken refuge around the trap to build or repair an AT-AT from a moss covered AT-AT leg they are carrying. Seeing how clever these Ewoks are I would expect the the levels to contain a lot more traps to help the Rebels in their quest.

As to be expected, the Angry Birds Star Wars Return of the Jedi update will be covered over multiple updates. Whether this means multiple episodes, or multiple updates within a single episode, isn’t clear. But we will have plenty of Star Wars — both original and prequel trilogies — in our gaming future!

Second Leaked Image! (14 August)

Angry Birds Star Wars Return of the Jedi Moon of Endor Leaked Image 2
Happy birthday to us! We want to celebrate our third birthday with a bang. And what better way to do that… than with another leaked image!

It seems from the image that the pigtroopers are continuing to build up their defenses. We also see a brand new gameplay element: A drum, presumably made by the Ewoks. But how on Endor can Han get past that AT-AT?! We’ll have to wait and see!

Now, are you ready to make the jump to lightspeed? Share your thoughts below.

I hope I can fling ewoks as well, but maybe it has low possibility.

Maybe the Ewoks could be another way to use the blues in the game. Mini Terrances” that split into three anyone??

I was actually thinking of the Orange Bird as portraying the Ewoks. (He still hasn’t appeared in ABSW yet, so…)

By Karim

I thought Yoda was the Orange Bird.

Not “expecting” but wouldn’t be shocked. Still have Red’s Mighty Feathers (normal gameplay) and Space updates on the radar. And those are just the ones we know about.

My opinion: we need 2 weeks between updates in order to master it. Because let’s face it when we ‘re done we’re not coming back to the levels with all the updates.

So there might be two new planets in the update? Jabba’s Palace/Tatooine and Endor?

You forgot the new death star.

Avatar of AnnifridRank: Fling King with 4120 points
By Annifrid (@annifrid)

I’m not sure about Death Star II, actually only Luke visited it, and basically all he did there was persuading Vader he was not that evil after all. How to make 40 levels out of that?

Rank: Master Slinger with 5490 points
By Bad piggies (@bad-piggies-2)

Maybe they will only make a cutscene out of that, or maybe a ending video as they did in Rio.

Avatar of AnnifridRank: Fling King with 4120 points
By Annifrid (@annifrid)

Maybe. Or maybe they could make a few levels of how Lando Calrissian destroyed the Death Star. Guess we’ll know soon :)

By Karim

I think when they relase the update there will be three Planets and for the first half of Death Star II is Lando going into the core and the second half is when Palpatine zaps luke vader gets angry and Pops Palpatine’s Gruards and palpatine himself and remeber I said three planets that mean there will be 180 level’s relased.

If we don’t receive the Space update before this I’ll be angry. That would make four Star Wars updates (90 levels) since Pig Dipper… and not a single level in Space.

That is the Leg of an At-St, they only have 2 legs instead of One. But on Endor there were Not At-Ats there were only These little At-sTs.

@spoonmon Yes, Return of The Jedi begins with ‘Jabba’s Palace’. But the above leaked image seems ‘Endor’ to me.

@iBird I think the image is Endor as well, but I was thinking that there will be Jabba Palace levels in the update. At least I hope so!

Agreed @spoonmon
I think, There will be total 40 levels in ROTJ – 20 levels of ‘Jabba’s Palace’ & next 20 levels of ‘Endor’ :)

Star Wars has always been fun to play due to the different birds, pigs, destruction effects and overall game play. Hoth was my favorite on the destruction effects. Following the movie themes also has provided a sense of personal enjoyment.
Hope the Ewoks take the characters for the birds because it will be fun to fling the little “fellows” and destroy those pig invaders.

Now, I DO have the time! Ahem. Let’s start!

Firstly, I am not surprised at both the timing and the update itself. With the flood of updates nowadays, I would really be surprised to find that ABSW did not have a ROTJ update soon.

The storyline is another matter though… (***SPOILER ALERT ON!!!***)

According to the movie itself, the jedi organised numerous attempts to save Han, which is located in a infamous gangster Jabba the Hutt’s palace, located on (surprise surprise!) tatooine. After that, the climax of the trilogy, the attack on both the uncompleted Death Star II and the forest moon of endor. (***SPOILER ALERT OFF***

So, if the game is true to the movie (It always is!), the next planet should be Tattoine! However, the leaked image did not look anything like a hot, stormy, dry desert planet. As many suggested, it should be Endor, which is featured after Tattoine. I am personally very interested to see how the managers manage this part of the storyline, as Tattoine has appeared before, being the first planet in ABSW.

If I should have a guess, I would guess that a new Tattoine would be featured with a different design, labelled “Return to Tattoine”. The idea of not doing Tattoine again is absurb, as there is potential to make a 40 level episode. Come on! Rancor, Sail Barge, Boba Fatt…… I would hope for 3 more episodes, Tattoine, Death Star II (I can already imagine teasers for Death Star II) and Endor, which is confirmed above.

About the teaser, I have mixed feelings. Again, like many users in the Nest feel, I thank Rovio for giving us ANOTHER exclusive teaser. Thank you Rovio! The teaser do show some new elements which suggests interesting gameplay, such as logs, moss covered ATTE leg (I honestly doubt it being an ATAT leg…) etc…but, no new characters? Oh well, suppose it is still in development then…

In other words, I look forward to the update! =D

I, for one, am pretty sure that Rovio will do something involving Jabba’s palace. I looked through the data files of ABSW and found a picture of Jabba’s palace over a Tatooine sunset; “Coming Soon” was written on it. It doesn’t appear in the game, but it makes me pretty certain that this is what is coming next (I also saw Cloud City/Bespin in the data files before it was actually released).

By Karim

where did you get the pitcure?

I saw it in the data files for my iOS copy of Angry Birds Star Wars.

Avatar of RizDubRank: Slinger with 1140 points
By RizDub (@rizdub)

I have the iOS copy. Your profile says you have the PC copy, so it may be in a different place than in my copy.

I had to unarchive the iOS file on my computer, then go to a folder specifically for images. Then I went to the episode selection screen images, and the picture of Jabba’s Palace was there.

They’re not shown directly in the game itself. I took the application archive on my iMac, used the Unarchiver on it, and then there were the data files. Here’s what I did:

@josm This has been a long-standing policy here at ABN that data files (images, etc.) that are not visible via normal gameplay should not be published here either (be it the precise image itself, a filepath, etc.). ABN adopted this policy long before I came around.

@DH-Kim I think, its an upgrade for Han, Like Luke’s Green Lightsabre.
I looked through the data files of ABSW and there is an image with three colored blasters of Han :- Red, Blue and Green.
Most likely, Blue and Green blasters will be upgrades.

Avatar of KwandaRank: Shooter with 765 points
By Kwanda (@timothy7427)

Maybe Lando would be upgraded with green blasters and Han with Blue. Because Rovio claimed that every Angry Birds Star Wars playable chracter will have only 1 upgrade except for luke but it’s optional to reupgrade him.
