Angry Birds animated series soon to fire away

Making an animated series out of Angry Birds first sounds like doing the same for Tetris; there’s not exactly much plot to work with, is there? Still, based on the charm of the game alone developer Rovio could come up with another hit. They’re looking to produce a series for either TV or the web, CEO Mikael Hed has revealed. Specifically the team are looking at “broadcast content” now that they’re “ready to move” on an animated series.

Perhaps we’re talking minute-long shorts here instead of a fully fledged series, but this could be pretty cool, as long as we don’t get confused and start trying the pull the birds back from our lovely 3D HDTVs.
