Angry Birds Stella Spin-off Coming Fall 2014

Angry Birds Stella PosterYesterday the ‘Nest was abuzz with speculation about what Rovio’s #newangrybirds teasers on Twitter were all about. Today, we have confirmation that the Pink Bird, aka Stella, is getting her own — likely female-focused — franchise.

“Best Friends Forever …. Most of the Time”

That’s the tagline for Angry Birds Stella that is displayed on the new stella.angrybirds.com landing page. Per the press release, “Angry Birds Stella is all about inspiration, empowerment and other real issues, without forgetting entertainment and quirky fun.”

This is more than just a game or update, it’s a whole new franchise. “Angry Birds Stella will bring fans a wide range of entertainment across multiple media, such as games, animation, toys, books and other retail products for many years to come.”

So what does this mean for us super flingers? Well, the press release does mention ‘games’, but it’s hard to say for sure what type of games they are referring to. I would definitely be surprised if this spinoff didn’t include a new mobile game however. But as we all know, not all mobile games are created equal, so let’s hope it’s something we can all enjoy as a community!

I for one am excited to see what’s to come. How about you? Let us know below.

Full Press Release

Get ready for something new in the Angry Birds universe! Meet Stella and her friends, a group of feisty characters with a shared love for fun, adventure and creativity. The story of Stella swings the fans to parts of the Angry Birds world we’ve never seen before. Angry Birds Stella is all about inspiration, empowerment and other real issues, without forgetting entertainment and quirky fun.

“Angry Birds Stella is breaking the mold by introducing strong, passionate characters who really stand for something, while adding plenty of action and reality into the mix”, said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio Entertainment. “The Angry Birds Stella story will live and evolve across physical and digital, bridging them in fun and innovative ways. Stella and her friends are here to stay, with plenty of adventures ahead of them.”

Angry Birds Stella will bring fans a wide range of entertainment across multiple media, such as games, animation, toys, books and other retail products for many years to come. Stay tuned for more details, including exciting products and partnerships lined up for the future.

It sounds different. I hope it’s fun for all, and not too tied into having to buy books and things.

That will be intresting to see what Rovio has in mind with Stella’s franchise. As it is said it would include games and much more entertainment. I am not into “entertainment” applications but as new thing is coming from surely winning team of developers it might be entertaining after all.

Well with the female group making entrance among birds, I’d like to see a group of female piggies. Would be cool to see female “fights” between birds and pigs :)

Very interesting! Did anyone notice that there are 6 birds in the outline teaser, and only 5 in the art above? (At least if you don’t count the queen in the background, who doesn’t seem to be in the art above, either.)

@mvnla2 think the queen is the bird sitting on the tree in the art, look at her shape.

@Miezko — Maybe, but the bird in the tree doesn’t have a crown.

@mvnla2, i think she once was a BFF of Stella, resembling the header BFFs, most of the time, but then she became evil, and a queen.

So, it seems to me that Angry Birds Stella is going to be a My Little Pony for Angry Birds lovers! And, I bet this was the Stella show Rovio talked about!

I kinda agree on this statement… XD Not to mention that there are six characters, or friends in other words, in this incoming franchise.

Well six ‘main’ characters, we may get other birds (and maybe some piggies!)

Well, thanks for clarifying my mistake there. =P Can’t wait to see more information to be reveals and hope there’s more of them. XD

Does anyone else feel like the character of Stella has rather been forced apon us since she was introduced in September 2012?

Now I know what the first teaser image was,
It was a first concept-or something like that-picture, because in it,Stella doesn’t have a tail or maybe,
Stella was actually gonna featured with the other birds in the same time,but it’s not finished yet so she was featured first.

Rovio did mention “digital” and they did post “games” so let the
electronic-device-fun begin…wishful thinking yes but cannot image they would not produce a whole new set of AB Stella games to add to their portfolio. Maybe to start with 3 sets of 15 games with 1 set to be added in the future. A few bonus levels like Rio and lets not forget my favorite, A Mrs. Mighty Eagle. Its nice to dream…

Quoted comment response from Angry Birds on Facebook:

“We’ve heard rumours that the piggies may have a rather strange alliance in this adventure…”

Since this game is still in development, a few things I would like to see:

1) Rovio account like in AB:O and AB:SW2
2) Real distinction between power up and non power up scores like AB:SW (in my opinion, the only version that got it right)
3) Unlimited Mighty Eagle for $0.99 like AB:O, AB:Seasons and AB:Rio

and from the official press release: The Angry Birds Stella story will live and evolve across physical and digital, bridging them in fun and innovative ways

The thing that stuck out to me was the word physical. To me, this means telepods. If in fact there are telepods, the in game rewards need to be a bit higher. If it were not for the fantastic tips from this site, I would not have been able to unlock all characters without spending quite a bit of real cash.

Informative post and press release on what is coming.

Wonder if you had any info on ABSW2 telepods 2Series of Shock Trooper Pig and Kit Fisto Bird. They are not in the 2Series Set of Rebels vs Villains. These appear not to have hit the stores nor Ebay. Wondering how they are going to be released?

Interesting News!

Quote from above link:
“Help Stella win back their accessories from the pesky piggies by knocking them over, then dress them up.”

Looks like, it’s the main ‘goal’ of the game. i.e. Win back Stella’s accessories (Tree house, palace, instrument bases) from the Piggies.

@wrw01 – Word is that Kit and the Shock Trooper will be released as a 2-pack. That is secondhand from Rovio responding to someone on Facebook.

Other than that, I haven’t been able to dig up any information or find any toys online or at local stores.

Why is everyone so sure that the bird at the top left is evil? If so, will it be a bird vs bird battle?

Avatar of SnTrooperRank: Champion with 3555 points
By SnTrooper (@sntrooper)

It is probably because she looks like the Evil Queen from Snow White. Plus the way she and Stella are looking at each other isn’t the friendliest. Add to that Roivio saying the pigs will have a strange alliance and it all points to her being bad. Although having said that I think she will be an ally because the description of the Palace playset is said to have to be taken back from the pigs and not the queen (or princess or whatever she is) and it is coming with “1 friend” (if she isn’t released with the palace she won’t be released).

I find it suspicious that Hasbro’s press release of the Angry Birds Stella Telepods avoids giving out names for Stella’s friends. What are they hiding?

Avatar of LuqmanRank: Shooter with 955 points

They’re not hiding it,Rovio just doesn’t want Hasbro to tell us.
Maybe.

Avatar of LuqmanRank: Shooter with 955 points

I have a proof that the queen in the background is (maybe) an enemy,when I see rovio’s website I got something interesting, here’s the quote: “Of course no story is complete without some interesting (fr)enemies!”

Is that only me,or is that actually the Pig City in the mountain next to the “Qeen Bird”.So that means the bird in the background IS the bad one!

Really ? I think you are actually right! and it looks like Snow White. Which I never really was interested in I am kinda excited but really sad at the same time.
I am sad because WHY!? Why would u make a GIRL themed Game!!!!!!!??????!!!?!?

I think it is very nice that there are new female birds, but, is it canon with the original saga?
