Angry Birds StellaRovio, the company behind Angry Birds, this week announced that it is not quite done with the Angry Birds franchise (not a big surprise, right?).

“Angry Birds Stella is breaking the mold by introducing strong, passionate characters who really stand for something, while adding plenty of action and reality into the mix”, said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio Entertainment. “The Angry Birds Stella story will live and evolve across physical and digital, bridging them in fun and innovative ways. Stella and her friends are here to stay, with plenty of adventures ahead of them.”

This latest Angry Birds chapter promises “inspiration, empowerment and other real issues, without forgetting entertainment and quirky fun” across a range of products including games, animation, toys, books and other retail products.

Rovio promises more details will be unveiled later.
