You knew it was coming. It is unavoidable. It is your destiny. Angry Birds is journeying to a galaxy far, far away. Today, a gameplay trailer was released that, in addition to revealing a pink Princess Leia bird (excuse me while I check off number 7 on my list of "Phrases I Never Thought I'd Have To Write"), shows our avian heroes wielding light sabers and shooting lasers out of their eyes to bring down AT-AT walkers. Which is ridiculous. Everyone knows that armor's too strong for blasters.

There's not much to see in the video beyond a couple of shots, but if you were wondering just what a Star Wars version of Angry Birds would look like, well, it's pretty much exactly what you would expect. It's the same game you've played for years, but with Force powers and lasers in both bullet and sword forms.

Search your feelings, Rovio. You can't do this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go of your franchise.

    Excellent incorporation of SW phrases. The "too strong for blasters" bit was particularly good.

    That's no blaster. It's a tractor beam.

    Ok, as far as I'm concerned, that looks like it could be a lot of fun. I don't see the problem with it, unless you consider it a cliched tie-in.

    I'm up for it though, it looks pretty damn good. Next I want a Big Lebowski Angry Birds....

    Am I the only one who STILL hasn't seen Star Wars?

    Why on earth does this game still attracts people ? I was a HUGE fan of it but It lost it's sparkle a year ago. It's not fun anymore. It's the same from the same with the same things only the theme is changed. Give it up Rovio.

    Is anybody else going to ignore this app...and then change their minds and buy it when Google is selling it for $0.25 during the Christmas sale?

    That's how it went for me with Angry Birds Space. I shouldn't, but seeing something for a quarter just makes it too hard not to buy.

    The game looks like it could be a blast, not quite sure what the writer had against it. Its a game you pick up while on a lunch break or waiting for a bus, or just when you have nothing else to do.
