Star Wars, Angry Birds mash-up? Yes, please

A mash-up between Star Wars and Angry Birds may be coming soon.

Rovio, owner of the popular Angry Birds franchise, updated its Tumblr blog today with an animated image of presumably — a very Angry Bird wearing a Jedi robe and holding a lightsaber.

The post said that the company will have "behind-the-scenes content, animations, comics and much, much more" on the page over the next few weeks.

Rovio didn't provide many details, besides hinting at something happening in New York's Times Square at 10am ET on 8 Oct. The post advises people to head to the Toys R Us store in the area at 8am ET.

We don't know what this is about, but CNET, for one, sure hopes it's a Star Wars version of Angry Birds. It's also plausible because, considering that the event is possibly taking place in or near Toys R Us, we could see some plush toys or other items cross-branding the franchises.
