In a recent interview with IGN, Rovio’s David Maisel detailed the progress of the Angry Birds movie, and it turns out — they’re taking it pretty seriously.
“It’s got to be everything that you’d expect from an Angry Birds movie as a fan of the game, plus so much more with surprises, innovative things, and twists,” he explains. “It’s something that we’ve worked already a lot on and we will over the next few years, but we’re going to try to keep it as tight as possible so that when you go into that theater, it’s an experience that you say, ‘Wow, I didn’t expect that.'”
Spoiler alert — the pig with the crown is the red bird’s father. Boom. Mind blown.
