Today Netflix and CAKE announced a new animated ‘Angry Birds’ series in partnership with Rovio Entertainment. Angry Birds: Summer Madness will debut in 2021 and take on the classic Angry Birds characters with a fresh new look.
Curtis Lelash, Director of Original Animated Series, Netflix said, “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.”
Here’s Netflix’s description of the series:
Angry Birds: Summer Madness sees much-loved birds Red, Bomb and Chuck, as well as a cast of brand new feathered friends, as 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, who seem hell-bent on causing as much mayhem as possible!
“Angry Birds animated content plays a key role in our long-term franchise strategy,”said Ville Heijari, CMO, Rovio. “After more than a decade in hit games, blockbuster movies and licensed products, this is the Angry Birds’ first foray into a long-form series. We’re delighted to continue our partnership with CAKE and can’t wait to unveil the world of Angry Birds: Summer Madness to viewers on Netflix.”
The series will consist of 40 x 11 minute episodes and will debut in 2021 exclusively on Netflix.
