More to Come from Shakira Bird in Angry Birds!


It wasn’t long ago that Rovio announced that International pop star Shakira would be joining the Flock as a “playable” character in Angry Birds Stella Pop.  As of yesterday, the 14 days of Shakira Bird joining Stella have ended.

But that’s not the last we’ve seen of her!

First off, Shakira Bird has been keeping busy, tricking piggies into doing good things.  Check out her animated debut in this Toons mini-episode, created to help publicize the Up For School petition.

She doesn’t stop there though.  According to a Billboard magazine article, she will be appearing in Angry Birds Friends and Angry Birds 2 in the coming months.

If I were a betting man, I would guess that next week’s Angry Birds Friends tournament, called the “Love Rocks Tournament” is likely the Shakira Birds’s debut in that game, seeing as how the the challenge for completion of her time in Angry Birds Stella Pop was called, “Power of Love Pop”, her power was the “Love Bubble” and the new area was called “Love Lagoon.”  That’s a lot of love connections.

This isn’t the first time that Rovio has collaborated with other music superstars.  Previously, Green Day appeared in Angry Birds Friends as pigs, Slash Bird re-worked the Angry Birds Space theme song, Chuck became Freddy for a Day, and Apocalyptica helped to increase tourism to Finland.  However, this is the first time a musical guest star will have appeared in three separate games.

Will she turn up in even further adventures with our heroic Flock?  Only time will tell.

UPDATE: E! Online has posted an exclusive story that hints there might be even bigger plans for the flaxen-haired songbird.  Check out the video:

So what do you think, fellow flingers? Do you like Shakira Bird?  Do you want to see her in even more games? Would you like to see more musical collaborations?  Squawk about it in the comments below!

@sahil-gagrai I loved the AB comics…but theres just 1 thing I worry wont happen in the AB Stella comics: SIZE! I observed in the AB comics among all the humor and great artwork that some of the sizes of the Birds were a bit off (in certain comics)- such as Bubbles being about the size of Red’s eye, Matilda being the size of Bomb (she’s slightly taller in AB Toons), Terence is sometimes a bit small, and Hal is a bit smaller than Red. The Pigs in what matter are perfectly fine and just how their supposed to be. The comics are still AWESOME, even if the sizes can be misprinted sometimes (don’t take me as a critic)

In other words (if your lost): I don’t want to see Luca the size of Stella

Yes, @rowdypup, I noticed that thing in the image I shared, Luca was looking almost the same size of Willow, or it seems everyone is almost the same size of Stella.

In addition, may be they will feature her in a set of games for the devices or have her record the theme songs for a few games.
