VANCOUVER – The worldwide phenomenon “Angry Birds” will be bringing its furious fowl and evil green pigs to Vancouver as it makes its way to the big screen.
Finnish video-game developer Rovio Entertainment said in a news release that it has picked Sony Pictures Imageworks’s Vancouver studio to be the primary animation house for the upcoming “Angry Birds” movie.
Rovio CEO Mikael Hed said he searched the world for the best animation facility, and he felt Sony Pictures Imageworks fit the bill.
“It was very important for Rovio to find the perfect partner — in style, talent and location — to bring the ‘Angry Birds’ movie to life, and Sony Pictures Imageworks in Vancouver made that decision easy,” he said in the news release.
The game has become a worldwide hit with multiple versions, in which players use a slingshot to launch colourful but irate birds toward green pigs.
