Rovio Entertainment’s long-awaited Angry Bird movie finally appears to be coming to fruition. The company recently announced both a distribution partner and a release date for the film which is described as a 3D animated comedy. The company recently tweeted the following that revealed the news:
The company originally announced in December 2012 that the movie was slated for a mid-2016 release but had no stated distribution partner at the time. Despicable Me producer John Cohen will be producing the film and former Marvel Studios chairman, David Maisel, a senior adviser to Rovio, will remain as the executive producer of the film.
Are any of you excited to see something that started as a game on the iOS platform coming to the big-screen as a movie?
