The Angry Birds Movie is getting a sequel to coincide with the game's 10-year anniversary.
Launching on 20th September, 2019, this sequel will be another joint collaboration between developer Rovio and Sony Pictures.
The film's existence shouldn't come as a surprise given that the first Angry Birds movie earned $350m worldwide since its launch last May.
The Angry Birds movie now has a debut trailer teasing its May 2016 release.
Angry Birds developer Rovio Games has announced Angry Birds 2.
The sequel will be fully revealed at a special event on 28th July and then be made available to download on the 30th.

Angry Birds developer Rovio has announced Storm Sisters, a series of young-adult fiction books starring a quintet of 11-17 year-old girls.
Written by Helsinki-based author Mintie Das, the first novel in the franchise will be published by Rovio in late 2015 or early 2016, The Guardian reports.
Like an all-female Famous Five set in the late 18th century, the series will centre around the exploits of Charlie, Sadie, Liu, Raquel and Ingela, who disguise themselves as pirates.
The Angry Birds movie has been cast and will star Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, Danny McBride, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Peter Dinklage.
Apple has marked the five year anniversary of its iOS App Store by revealing the best-selling downloads across all of its platforms. And, unsurprisingly, Angry Birds features pretty heavily.

Piracy isn't always bad for business and can help grow an entertainment brand, so argues the boss of Angry Birds developer Rovio.
2012 is going to be a fascinating year as far as handhelds are concerned. iOS continues to screw with the marketplace, for one thing, helping to democratise development while also redefining how much audiences expect to pay for a game. Meanwhile, the 3DS appears to have finally hit its stride - or has it? - and Sony's getting in on the action with the almost implausibly lavish Vita. Is there still enough room for everybody?

It would probably get boring for you lot if every week was filled with top-rated games. In fact, I know that a lot of you kind of glaze over at some of the scores, and some outright moan that mobile games get routinely over-rated ("9/10? Better than Halo? ROFL")
Like any platform, it's important to judge mobile games in context. An inventive 9/10 puzzle game costing 59p can never be the same as a 9/10 epic action game on a home console. But nor would you necessarily want it to be.
Trying to somehow read something definitive into what a score 'means' is, a slippery subject, and yet we all debate them endlessly. But at the same time, as long as you're always dealing with like-for-like comparisons, you're on safer ground.

The dumbing down of society continues unabated. We live in a world where irredeemable pap like The Black Eyed Peas' The Time (Dirty Bit) tops the charts, where Peaches Geldof not only has a career but is paid to appear on telly and, like, talk about stuff, and stuff.

The trouble with doing these roundups is never quite knowing how good a game is going to be. As with Game Dev Story, you can sometimes end up finding something so good that it clearly deserves its own review. This is probably the shortest review you'll ever see on Eurogamer, but until that review gets commissioned, you should trust me on this and buy it immediately. It'll be the best £2.39 you ever spend. Probably.
The rest of the current crop isn't quite so magisterial in quality, but we think you'll appreciate at least a couple of the five we've got lined up for you this week. Shoot To Kill is the first of numerous new games on the way from ex-Sensible head honcho Jon Hare's new mobile-centric outfit Tower Studios, while addled Angry Birds addicts will no doubt be delighted to know that they can sink another few hours into the 45 new levels on offer.
Elsewhere, Reckless Racing is one of the best-looking mobile titles ever made, while Dexter's belated release on iPad is a prime example of where it all goes horribly, gruesomely wrong. A horror show for all the wrong reasons.
