Almost all devices will be supported to view the animation series with a special Rovio developed video app, as quoted by Nick Dorra at the MIPTV conference in Cannes. Rumors are also abound about an Angry Birds movie, though Rovio is adamant to only reveal it by 2014. The animation is slated for release at around the September time frame, though no specifics were given to the exact date.

With the company growing absurdly fast, Rovio wants to redefine itself into “not just a game company” company. Let’s wait and see if these episodes can compare ot other 2-3 minute clip videos i.e. Happy Tree Friends etc.
