"I am your feather."

Rovio has released the first gameplay footage of Angry Birds Star Wars.

After a short sketch involving Angry Birds versions of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia, we see the game in action.

It plays like Angry Birds, but with Angry Birds Star Wars characters, all the official Star Wars sounds and Star Wars themed objects in the environment, such as an AT-AT.

We see a level based on Tatooine, with Luke's gaff in the background, and a level based on the ice planet Hoth. You can swing a lightsaber.

The teaser comes ahead of a full gameplay trailer, due out on 5th November. The game itself launches on 8th November for to iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Kindle Fire, Mac, PC and Windows 8.
