Angry Birds Star Wars was a video game that is part of the Angry Birds series. It serves as an adaptation of the original trilogy of the Star Wars series. It was developed by Rovio Entertainment and LucasArts, and published by the former in November 2012. A prequel, Angry Birds Star Wars II, would be released in October 2013.

As with all remaining Angry Birds games released before Angry Birds Transformers (aside from Angry Birds Friends), Angry Birds Star Wars was deleted from the App Store and Google Play Store in 2019. In early 2020, the game was officially discontinued and the servers for Angry Birds Star Wars, Angry Birds Star Wars II and Angry Birds Rio were closed down. However, the game can still be played as normal except from microtransactions and advertisements being disabled

It is possible, though unlikely that Angry Birds Star Wars, Angry Birds Star Wars II and Angry Birds Rio will return along with other games like Seasons after Rovio said in a reply that it "will be a long shot due to the license".


Having finished the construction of the Death Star, Darth Vader kidnaps Princess Leia, who is left in a room with R2-D2. She installs the plans of the Death Star in the robot's memory, and the latter uses an escape pod to escape with his friend C-3PO. Later, Darth Vader pressures Leia into telling him the location of "The Egg", an object that Vader wants to find to be promoted to Emperor, although she refuses. In the meantime, C-3PO and R2-D2 land on Tatooine, where they are found by some Jawa Birds, who put them in sale hoping to get some money.[1]

Some time later, Luke Skywalker goes to buy some supplies for his farm, only to come across the Jawa Birds, who offer him R2-D2 and C-3PO. He decides to buy them and the Jawa Birds leave satisfied. The robots tell Luke about the Death Star and Leia captive.[1] Later, Luke makes his way through Tatooine, coming across some Tusken Raiders, who manage to knock him down. Fortunately however, Obi Wan Kenobi comes in and saves him. Afterward, the duo goes to a cantina, where they meet Han Solo and Chewbacca. Then, Greedork appears after being sent by Jabba the Hutt to hunt down the heroes.[1] However, Han spots him and shoots a laser shot at him. The group later uses the Mighty Falcon to leave Tatooine and go to space. There, they track the location of the Death Star and go to it. They are supported by the Blue Squadron as well.

After going onboard the Death Star, the group has a battle against Darth Vader, which gives both the villain and Obi Wan more power of the Force. The heroes later have another battle against Vader, the latter driving his TIE fighter. Despite the odds, the group defeats Darth Vader and manages to destroy the main reactor of the Death Star, which triggers a chain reaction that causes it to explode.

Later, the Bird Rebels go to Hoth and build a secret headquarters there, the Echo Base. Learning about the base, Darth Vader and his troops go to Hoth and start a battle against the Rebels there.[1] With no other option but to escape, the heroes end up in one of the asteroids of the planet. Ending up in a cave full of hostile Mynhogs, the group makes their way, eventually defeating the Giant Mynhog and leaving.

Some time after these events, the Bird Rebels go to Cloud City, a floating city on planet Gaspin, to visit Han Solo's old friend, Lando Birdissian. However, the group is unaware that Darth Vader already knows about this and has forced Lando to give him all the details about the Rebels' hostage.[1] Later, Darth Vader and Boba Fett manage to kidnap Solo and freeze him in carbonite. Regretting having aided Vader, Lando teams up with the Rebels to take down the villain. Eventually, Luke has a duel against Darth Vader, who admits to him that he is his father. However, Luke still manages to defeat him. The Bird Rebels later leave.

Time later, Luke and R2-D2 use the X-wing Birdfighter ship to travel to Dagobah so that Yoda can train Luke. Accidentally landing on Dragonsnake Bog, causing the ship to sink in the water, the two meet Yoda, who trains Luke to be a Jedi Master. Luke and R2-D2 would later leave Dagobah. In the meantime, on Tatooine, Leia frees Han from the carbonite he was trapped in, only for the two to be kidnapped by Jabba the Hutt. However, Luke comes in and saves his friends. The three heroes later leave after choking Jabba to death. On a moon of planet Endor, the Bird Rebels meet the Ewok Birds and destroy one of Darth Vader's bases.

Meanwhile, in space, Vader and his minions have finished the building of the Death Star 2, which is powerful enough to pulverize entire battle ships instantly. However, the Bird Rebels and Lando manage to weaken the defense systems of the ship, thus making them able to get aboard it. There, the Bird Rebels have a final showdown against Darth Vader and his master, Emperor Palpatine. However, Vader has a sudden change of heart and strikes down Palpatine, though this leaves him very injured. A grieved Luke then opens Vader's armor, allowing him to see his face for the first time. However, the heroes are later forced to leave the Death Star 2 after a chain reaction is triggered, causing it to explode. The Bird Rebels later celebrate their victory with C-3PO, R2-D2 and some Ewok Birds as Obi Wan, Vader, and Yoda, as Jedi spirits, watch them.


Angry Birds Star Wars is a puzzle video game with similar gameplay to that from previous Angry Birds games. In the game, the player takes control of a limited group of birds, who can be launched anywhere by the use of a slingshot. All levels have a series of enemies the player must take down by the use of their characters. These enemies normally appear sheltered inside of structures made of wood, glass, and/or metal, in addition of some additional objects, such as chains and TNT. If the player fails to kill all the enemies in the levels, they will get a Level Failed screen, encouraging them to try again. If they manage to do so however, they will win and pass to the next level. Upon completing each level, the player will receive one, two, or three stars depending on the score received.
