After two moderately successful movies, The Angry Birds is coming to television in Angry Birds: Summer Madness. As the title implies, it will debut next summer (on Netflix, of course).
Developed by Cake and Rovio Entertainment, there will be 40 11 minute episodes in total and, as you can see above, Red, Bomb, and Chuck are getting a brand new look courtesy of an updated animation style. They will be joined by a new flock of characters, and Deadline has a description of the series!
The site notes that the show will follow the “tween birds at summer camp under the questionable guidance of their counselor Mighty Eagle.”
“Explosive antics, improbable pranks and crazy summertime adventures see the birds pushing boundaries and breaking all the rules while fending off the brash and obnoxious Pigs on the other side of the lake,” it continues, “who seem hell-bent on causing as much mayhem as possible!”
Whether this is the end for The Angry Birds on the big screen is unclear, but seeing younger versions of this adorable trio will definitely be a treat for fans and younger viewers alike.
Curtis Lelash, Director of Original Animated Series, Netflix said in a statement, “Angry Birds have been a true phenomenon for kids around the world and we’re excited to bring them home to the nest at Netflix where they will be angrier and bird-ier than ever.”
